Rio made this book for me. It was a great story and he was a terrific hero. The only down side, for me, was Grace. I know she has had a rough go of it, and had been through a lot, including losing all of her family and being kidnapped & practically tortured, but she was such a "woe is me" heroine. I could understand Rio's hero-complex taking over and him wanting to rescue her and take care of her, but I never got a good feeling of why he would fall in love with her. I just felt like there wasn't much depth to her except for her being a victim. Can't wait for the next book, though. I love this series!
