If you're looking for a read that you can't put down, that pulls you in, and makes you feel for the characters as if you're part of the story this is for you.
I will say that I was a little disappointed towards the end (not going to spoil it for you), but I will say that I was in too deep to let that stop me from savoring the story and still raving about it. I will be re-reading this book when ever I need a lift or break from the real world!
I can't wait for more!!
Another concern, I did not expect the main plot of the book to be a love story, an really, unbelievably intense love story. I started counting the number of times the protagonist used the word "Darling" and lost count at 100. Another character consistently called his female co-worker "Dude" and the heroine spoke in such a manner that I am uncertain a much older, educated, upper class Englishman would find her "freakin" suitable.
Ending leaves lots of unanswered questions. Wished the author was as concerned about tying up those loose ends as she was aboutdescribing the ecstasy of the lovers, point, by point by point.
