Hot, exciting and fast paced, left me craving more.

I wanted to read this one because I loved the prequel and if you've read my blog long, you know I am a long time fan of Jennifer's. Her men are steamy, her main characters easy to relate to, it has exactly my kind of humor,...

Swoony, fell for the characters.
