I don t knowsometimes I really enjoyed the characters, but most of the time I spent not really knowing what to make of them It just felt like a strange relationship, and sometimes things were so contradictory Not my fave Good book, esp if you re looking for steamy think porno in words Too bad once the characters fell in love instead of lust that the author cut back on the sex and the descriptions Still, if you re looking for a book that will get you in the mood, this is it I tried really hard to like this since I d liked another story in this series But this just dragged for me and felt endless And not in a good way. I liked Shandi and Quentin Their attraction felt real and together they were hot I didn t like the Evan and April side story What was the point in that The ending felt a bit rushed. It was a quick fun read, the hotel was a bit gimicky but not too much Definitely erotica rather than romance, exactly what you d expect I don t particularly think the april evan thing added much I could definitely have lost that subplot.
