It's 3.5 actually. I was really torn between giving this book 3 stars and 4 stars, but it was just..well..too sweet for my taste.

The main characters are beautifully drawn and very handsome. On their way toward their happiness they faced some rather dangerous perils. However everything worked out too smoothly and when I was less than half through this book I already knew that the ending would be of a "happily ever after" kind. It's not that I didn't like it, but it was too predictable.

Moreover, the beginning was too rushed. It just scooted by and somehow reminded me of a famous Latin saying "veni, vidi, vici". And in this case it wasn't in the favour of the book.
