Loved how Linden is portrayed, she is struggling and proud for a woman in her situation she could have chosen a different path because it was too hard, she didn't. Entertaining read....more

Overall great story, but it had problems. There are a few things in the book that I just thought were ridiculous. If you can overlook the main age thing with Aubrey pretending to be older, you will enjoy the story. I thought the book had a lot of great parts, particularly Daws and the way he handles Aubrey. Definitely leads to more book in the series that have me curious....more
