I picked this book up because several people I listen to & respect loved it. This is my first experience with the author and I'd give her another shot, BUTTTTTTTTTTTT. The hero really straddled the line between romantic and totally creepy. Add to that a heroine who fights the romance and runs from it 75% of the book, and I just didn't enjoy it as much as others seemed to have. Did I mention the hero came across as kinda super creepy to me at times? Yeah. Regardless, the story was still compelling enough to make me try another book in the series.
