I think I have learned my lessons on trilogies. I am now going to listen to the whole thing before I write the review of book 1, hence my weird ratin..Show More »g.
This book was great, it had twists, it was hot, it was believable...and then the massive cliffhanger and poof contrived drama that is so ridiculous I can't even do it justice.
In book one they meet they fall, they become each others world then Tristan drops a metaphoric bomb and Nina has to leave...then she gets into a crash and it wipes away her memory...how freaking convenient! Then they work through some things and poof even with the previous information she starts hunting him...and that's where book 2 leaves us...which is beyond any soap opera plot.

The only disappointing thing is that the story does not end and we have to wait for another volume (hopefully not more) to get our happy ending.

They were whiny and just making stupid decisions. It was really lacking for me. When the action finally happened I was just over it. A little editing and attitude adjustments and it would be a really good book.
