3 1/2 starsThere were parts of this book that I really liked.Likable characters, great imaging and a sexy SEXY dude! Others parts, not so much.It was a little too wordy for me, LOTS of narration and inner-musings.I also wanted more time with the H/h. It was fun to get inside the bad guy's head but fewer pages would have been plenty.And the ending was WAY too rushed. The story had been so detailed and descriptive prior to the end, that it didn't fit. I'm guessing the publisher made her shorten it up?
