Overall, this Stone book had a poignant & angtsy childhood-sweethearts romance. Sexual tension & its very few love scenes were ok. My emotions were involved & my reading went fairly fast until the last 1/4 of the book. Basically, once Hero & heroine discussed their past fully & reconciled, the tone & pace of the book changed. The suspense part unfolded in a contrived & predictable way. It destroyed the smooth & emotional-poignant feel of the story beforehand & things became awkward & boring.
Recommended for its love story.
