This had all of my favorites, romance, sexiness, intrigue and suspense. Jodi had the right mix of femininity as well as independence. Micah was Alpha, big and imposing, but also lovable. I loved the other characters as well,Joel, Micah's Dad was quite the personality. The brothers Ace and Gabe appear to have potential and that cousin Chael had my full attention. It was also nice to be reintroduced to Aaron and Patience. Definitely a great book, that keeps you guessing and interested.
