This book was so lyrical that I became irritated at times, with the luscious display of prose. And it was luscious. I didn't feel enough of the passion between the main love interests (their names have escaped me as I create this review.) Most of the characters weren't complex enough for me, and much of the plot was predictable.

This would have been a much more interesting story about Ian and his love interests. The most complex characters, I was intrigued by his struggle to define himself as a man, beyond his art and the anger he felt at the people who'd helped paved his way to success. Ian's self loathing and violent tendencies is where the real story is, not within the romance.

I'll add though that many an island girl, have used produce for um....well...read it.
