She kept me interested throughout the book and portrayed each character well, causing me to care about not only the two main characters, but the rest of the Titan Team, as well. The arguing, the steam and the suspense kept me riveted throughout the story. I recommend this book to anyone that likes a little bit of suspense, action, hot sex and true love.
