This is the first book I have tried to read by this author and honestly I'm disappointed. It started out and I felt totally captivated. Strong hero, strong heroine, their both warriors! I mean, seriously appealing! I was loving it. But as the story when on I felt like it was getting boring and repetitive and annoying.

The power struggle between the H&h is understandable, but so repetitive. The strong heroine we see in the beginning, seems like a complete ditz later, is completely naive and rather accident prone. The hero gets all soft and squishy when he thinks about her (which normally I wouldn't see a problem with but this is just kinda silly) and they both are just ridiculously stubborn.

I think this story had lots of potential, but there is no way I'm going to even waste my time finishing it. Nothing really seems to be changing. I feel no connection to the character, less the further I get, and that's unusual for me, as I usually over empathize with a character.

Obviously a lot of people really like this book, but it did nothing for me after about the 4th chapter.
