What I thought:

This was an enjoyable read, not my favorite in the series, but a good read. While I am enjoying the series, it is starting to get a bit predictable (although, that isn't really a bad thing) and I already know what is happening before it happens. It has some great steamy scenes, which I read it for, that keep me entertained and a good plot that I wanted to see through to the end.

While I liked the characters, I'm still waiting for a different kind of heroine. They are all starting to blend together with roughly the same personalities. All so far have been strong characters that have lent their strength and will to their men. I would like to see the roles reversed, where both characters aren't so strong all of the time. While the characters had vulnerabilities at moments, it wasn't enough. I like strong characters, but they all can't be strong all of the time.

I gave it 3 stars!
