I could NOT like this book at all. The main character is an absolute twit! I can not stand how she kept trying to rationalize her addiction and the finanical debt she was incurring because it. Yes, I know there are women out there, but it is insulting to me that someone with half a brain, who is supposed to be in the finance industry can't manage to see her own issues.

The way the conflict was resolved was too quick and pat for me either, along with the "romance" aspect of it. I had high hopes of this novel, as it has several good reviews, but this series is one that I will not pick up again.
