I want to start by saying that I appreciate that the characters did not immediately fall in love with each other, but that there was a period of courtship involved.

This is the story of the big, beefy all-American alpha marine charging in to take care of his shy, geeky omega. Unfortunately, that's not enough to carry a story for me.

Liam's adorable awkwardness and crapsack life backstory were not enough for me to suspend disbelief or think for even one second that there was a chance this tale wasn't going to end up all tied up with a neat little bow.

The brief conflicts were instigated by flat characters with no discernible motivation other than to cause that moment of upset before we got back to the cuddling.

Also, there were a couple of topics in the book that were obviously hot buttons for the author, and I would suggest she ease up a little on the "this is my opinion" bat in her next works.
