The premise of the book was promising but I had problem with its pacing. There was something about the writing that didn't lend itself to a smooth, riveting read. The sexual chemistry had a stop-start cadence to it. There were some hot scenes followed by tepid ones. The sensual build-up wasn't consistent. The love scenes were just ok. Aside from the pacing & inconsistent sensuality, the characters were interesting. I liked that Hero & heroine didn't play hard-to-get & were basically honest with each other once they had some insight on their own emotions & desires.
