This book redeemed the series, a little.
It took some time to get into it, but I liked the story of Wee William and Nora. I'm not so fond of the secret he keeps. I think he could tell her and she would have understood and gone along with his plan. But he was dumb, and it helped with the drama of the book. Gotta have a conflict that could tear apart the couple.
There were a few sex scenes, but nothing too explicit. And all done within marriage.
A major negative about this book was the secondary storylines that became main storylines in chapters 18-23. I like Bree. I like Rowan. But why were their stories randomly the only content in these chapters? It came out of nowhere and I skimmed most of those chapters when I realized they weren't about the couple I wanted to read about (Wee William and Nora). I felt like I was in another book. Two different books! I think these storylines could've been alluded to and saved for a prologue for different books. It didn't make sense to me why these stories were added. I wanted to read about Wee William bonding with John while he's teaching him to fight, but I didn't get that. It really annoyed me. Tisdale has done this with another book I've read of hers, but this was major. Six chapters that had nothing to do with the main characters.
