I'm not really a fan of realty TV, but I found this book very enjoyable even though I didn't particularly care to have so many different POV's. I have not read the first book, The Holdout, but this book read just fine as a stand alone. I particularly liked Robin and Zelda but Yuri didn't really do it for me - he didn't feel terribly masculine to me even though he apparently had a class-full of ballerinas clamoring for his attentions. I also never got the adrenaline rush of rashly climbing to outrageous heights, but that is more of a personal bias since my uncle died in a fall while working on a construction site about one month before I was born.
The book held my attention. I thought the writing was descriptive without being overly so, and I really loved the journey and growth the characters faced and the difficulties that shaped them all.
