I actually thought this book was really interesting, and the background story going on was fun too. I thought with every encounter with Simon and Lauren just made the sexual tension between them steamier and steamier. Yes, there were parts that I skipped, but I feel like Laurens does that in most of her books = putting way too much detail, or going off topic into something else, or describing someone's thoughts a million times. It certainly wasn't the best book by her I read, but it was NOT the worst.
