Kleypas may add some supernatural elements in her books but this one falls fully onto paranormal romance category. I love paranormal romance so the first half of the book was pretty good for me. SPOILERS AHEAD.

Even though the sex scenes were graphic they weren't sexy. Just very cold and removed. I think Kleypas failed to illustrate the passion behind dominance sex play. It might have worked better with Zoe and Alex instead. Perhaps Jason was too contradicting to be naughty that way. Overall Jason's character wasn't put together well.

After Jason betrayed Justine, she basically turns into a huge pushover as a way to move the plot along. Because for a woman with trust issues she forgave way too quickly and believed what everyone told her at face value. And for someone who claims repeatedly she couldn't be bought, that's basically what he did. I lost all respect for her and ended up skimming the rest of the book. Their time together after that became more shallow.

The ending is extremely predictable and I was hoping Kleypas would put some surprises in there.

A huge disappointment, especially because the beginning was so good. Don't waste money or credits on it.
