While this book was ok, it dragged in many places. In complete opposition to the slow story the ending, or the coming together of the pair with the I love yous was like I love you, ok the end of the book. It felt rushed. While I love VLT's books this one I had so much problems with the pace of it that I almost abandoned it a few times. I might check out the next in the series to see if it gets better. I haven't decided yet.
