Honestly this book strted out with promise it opened with a great dream sequence that really set some pace for action and mystery then enters the "strangers at the bar" and to be completely honest it went down hill REALLY fast!! How does an intreverted, semi paranoid loaner go to a love sick puppy following this guy and his family EVERYWHERE with no hesitation?? And what gets me the most is she knows hes keeping things from him and shes all good with that even though every thought process she has is about she knows he is hiding things but one look from him makes her melt and yearn to be closer to them all.. WOW thats seemed really shallow. I found myself rolling my eyes at this and the repetitive conversations and interactions. And I really couldn't get over the dialog between the characters it all seemed so forced.. Too much of the story was told to the main character than experienced I like a story that I get to feel like I am a part of not just told second hand what is happening. I think the story had a great concept and the potential to be a great series but with the dialouge and the grammer errors which (I did read in other Copies this had been fixed. I had purchased the ebook version for Nook.) I personally dont see myself picking up the sequel
