I love the way the Madaris men love their women. Although I cannot remember Reese making an appearance in previous books, I am glad to have met him. This story was special to me in that I've been horribly attracted to several men who saw me only as a friend. It made me wonder if I had missed some sign early on and doomed myself to the fate of being the best gurl(a chick who is like a good guy friend) friend. Ah well...
Reese is an even tempered intellectual who recognizes the beauty in all women. Definitely a good guy who's almost oblivious to his affect on women. He's the type of guy all women would chase simply because he's not parading himself as God's gift.
Lakenna is the average woman. She's looking for love, knows where it is but determined she can't have it. She chose to settle for being a best friend instead of fighting for her man. Her insecurities override her common sense.
the difference in this and all over Madaris books is the suspense story took back stage to the love story. The drama and danger was not directly centered on the heroine. It was sort of a red herring. Not sure if it helped the story but it gave me a chance to visit with Drake and Tori. I love them and their sick, twisted personalities!! Because of this, I feel the portrayal of Reese and Kenna working out making a transition into a committed relationship could have been more intense.
All in all i enjoyed this book as much as all over Madaris novels and I can't wait to read Lee's book. Assuming Mama Laverne is right again (less)
