Hot cover! that's not why I bought the book. I think it was Smart Bitches that mentioned the author and I tried this one (probably because it was on sale???)
The romance was hot and dramatic. The underlying issues weren't shyed away from -- which I really appreciated. Life is challenging.
But the characters didn't quite ring true for me. Too different. Larger than life.
I feel bad being a bit harsh. For lots of people, I think the characters work.
Sometimes books just don't connect.
