it was ok

I've loved this author and was so excited for a new book, but this one was disappointing. The story is okay, I liked it enough, but I just didn't really connect with Ellen, the main character. Her life didn't really fascinate me and I couldn't relate to her obsession over Leo. Am I just naive, or missing out on something in life, that that type of passion really seems only something for fiction, not real life beyond the first 6 months of dating? And the ending just didn't do it for me either. She was still who she was, no character development, just everyone placating to her needs. I'm not into complete martyrdom for women, but a marriage involves some sort of compromise on both parts, and this one just struck me as too selfish to accept.
