** spoiler alert ** I like angst but ...

Too much internal heroine thinking/moping/brooding. Way too insecure and neurotic. I wanted to kick this wet chick and tell her to DO something.

No coherent hero POV. What there was - a 20 something year old determined to marry and breed a 17 year old - did not appeal. And what kind of alpha male needs revenge cuz a teenager rejected him? Wuss!

Both of them seemed content to let the other think the worst of them and then got hurt/indignant/snarky when that's exactly what happened.

I never understood why the heroine just didn't tell him when she was 17 that she was infertile (except then there would be no story...).

Could have been improved if we were shown (before the very last chapter) that the hero actually loved her. Some happy/tender scene(s) would've been nice.

Other possible improvements: more action, less bouncing around in the heroine's head. Fewer run-on sentences.

Not sure I would try another EP if this is her typical writing style. And I'm glad I swapped this baby away!
