I enjoyed Jewel’s writing, but I realized halfway through the book that I didn’t like any of the story’s characters. What I did like is that the characters were fully developed. I may not have liked them, but they did have character, and the there were a lot of hot love scenes that I think were well written. There was also a mystery subplot thrown in involving a murder/rapist adducting women that Raun was tasked with investigating. I really felt this plot could, and should, have been left out because I don’t think Jewel pulled it off well; the conclusion of the subplot felt very chaotic. This was a better than average story that kept me reading to the end, but it most definitely didn’t work as well for me as Scandal. Even so, I would pick up more books by this author, if the plot interested me.
