Sometimes this author makes her characters more like caricatures. Gem, for example, is not just the stereo-typical spoiled little rich girl, but she is also out of touch with reality. She never once, not even for a moment, thought that the fact that every one of her university classes came to her home as unsual? Then she gets upset when someone wonders how much "Daddy" paid for this front-door service. They did it just because he asked them to. Honestly, its not even naive, its just stupid. Eventually she does show a small amount of growth, but not nearly enough to consider this a good story. Oh, and did i mention Gem was incredibly selfish? At no point was she ever willing to even consider a compromise. I didn't like the character, and I like her development even less. In the end I was left feeling sorry for Shaun. He deserved so much better.

    I disliked this book. The characters had no chemistry. And, Gem's character flaw was too pronounced. I get that she was supposed to be a sheltered heiress, but it was just a bit too much for my taste. Couple that with the fact that Sean is so street smart and worldly the two make an odd match. I didn't feel their connection at all. The sex scenes were really dry. I was more interested in the side plot then the main plot.

    The female main character is a little whiney, and the main male character a little dumb. Other than that, the story is okay.
