3.5 stars

I didn't like this as much as I did 5 years ago (originally gave it 4 stars), but it was still charming and cute. I didn't like Cairo or her aunt though. Nor did I care for the "secret kid" trope. Why I continued reading was because I absolutely loved the adventuring/cave-crawling. I must of been an archaeologist in a past life because I find that stuff so fascinating. The romance was good too, a little cheesy at times, but good. Overall, it was a nice, easy and entertaining read.

This was an OK read. Typical of the 'she has a baby he never knew about, with a rekindling of the flame.' They fight, he gets mad and it all turns out happy in the end. It's amazing as you read more and more how sometimes you just want to maul the character, well, you'll get that feeling in this book. You just wish sometimes they'd make better choices and things would work out oh-so-differently.
