The setup reminded me slightly of Josh Lanyon
's Adrien English series - and comparisons against the AE series always leave the other books looking slightly lacking. Having said that, I thought the suspense was balanced well against the romance elements in this book. Generally, the relationship was more angst-y than the prequel Life Lessons
, which is always a plus for me!
I did like this book, and have added Kaje Harper to my list of authors to read.
