So this one was a bit of a mixed bag for me which makes it a bit of a PITA to review. I didn’t particularly like the heroine or her stringing along three men. She was basically a female manwhore. Sleeping with two and making out with the third all at the same time. I wasn’t sure if I should be disgusted or give her a high-five. And I HATED that she got (HIGHLIGHT TEXT FOR SPOILER) pregnant by her ex and now the poor hero has to raise his kid. Talk about a totally unnecessary plot point. I also found certain aspects of the book cheesy (Danish mafia..’Nuff said). There were no sex scenes, and it was way too long.
That said, every time I thought about setting it aside and calling it a day I would read a few more pages and get sucked back into the story again. So clearly there was something that I enjoyed and kept me reading. I would even go so far as to say that I was intrigued enough to give the next book a go. I am going to go with a three-star rating at this point. That may or may not change after I moll it over a bit more.
