I have to fan myself after finishing up this read; it was incredibly hot and steamy! The main characters, Raith and Willow, certainly did not experience love at first sight. Lust, yes, but not love. For over half the book they were constantly getting on each other's nerves, biting back with snarky comments, and trying to convince themselves that they actually hated each other, all while having mind-blowing sex. It drove me a bit nuts at times; they both clearly were developing strong feelings for the other, but were too stubborn and afraid of rejection to express it. They wasted a lot of time trying to pretend they were just in it for the sex. However, I did really enjoy their interactions. One minute they would be tearing each other apart, the next they were rolling around in bed...or on the table...or wherever they happened to be. Like I said, very steamy! The secondary characters added some different dimensions to the story and I liked them for the most part. I became slightly annoyed by Willow's cousin, Camille; one minute she would be kind of okay with Willow being in a "relationship" with Raith, and then she would admonish her for continuing to see him. I guess she probably couldn't decide if she should support what her cousin wanted or be completely against it.
The relationship between Raith and Willow was not typical, but that's what I liked about it. Every once in a while they let their guard down and it was actually pretty sweet. I'm bummed that I can't tell you more. One of my favorite quotes from the book would be a huge spoiler, and I don't want to ruin this book for anyone. So disappointing! I'll just say that it was a really sweet quote by Raith and it may have brought a little tear to my eye.
I loved the ending. The story started to lose me after a certain huge plot turn that felt a little ridiculous, but I felt different about it by the end. The suspense part of the novel seemed more of an after thought. I realize the main theme of the book is the complicated relationship between Raith and Willow, but I wish the stalker aspect would have been developed just a little more.
I wasn't sure exactly what to expect when I started this book, but I would say it exceeded my expectations. I liked the characters and really enjoyed the story line. If you're in the mood for a steamy romance with a little suspense thrown in, definitely check out this book!
