The Past Between Us was a quick, quick read. SuperR stories are becoming more and more like that these days, it seems. I enjoyed the suspense and the way the romance built naturally on Cassi and Thomas's shared past. Cassi was an excellent heroine: she had smarts, stamina and was seductive, too.

I have to admit I was surprised when Thomas knocked Cassi out cold with a right hook (p. 31) when subduing her. Apparently, it was in the line of duty...
