I loved this Fox book. The mixture of romance, identity, family, & culture were put together in a smooth & emotionally-moving way. There were some funny, poignant, & sweet moments. Sexual chemistry & sex scenes were good. Dialogue was engaging. I liked heroine's combination of innocence, practicality, independence, humility, & caring. I liked that she was able to laugh at herself & take people's ridicule of her lightly. As much as she desired to get to know her biological father, she weighed in the consequences of how it'll affect herself & others involved. I could feel her angst upon making her decision b/w her dad & Hero. I also felt Hero's anger, puzzlement, & desire for heroine. It was in how he acted more than what he said. His judgemental behaviors toward heroine was understandable & wasn't overdone. He was really a good man who's protective over those he loved.
