Getting through the first chapter was rough. The story itself was okay, the telling and writing not so much. A more extensive vocabulary would have ..Show More »helped greatly. While Ms. Flosnik is not a terrible narrator, she didn't really fit this story or these characters.
I don't know what all the hype is about this book. I think the H was a jerk.

His reasons for keeping her were totally selfish, and he treated her badly. Whenever she would fight back, he would call her deceitful and continue to keep her prisoner, despite the fact he was keeping secrets himself. The plot was interesting and I can see how it will tie in with the next book in the series, but the H in this one is a lose, lose for me. I didn't find him likeable at all.
