No sex, though lots of kissing and abductions happily cut short. Not a completely satisfying dynamic between hero and heroine. And a rather abrupt resolution. I didn't like that there was no real reason for their love - it seemed founded entirely on physical attraction, which I find to be a disgustingly stupid reason to spend the rest of your life with someone.
This was a cute story and I really enjoyed reading it. Towards the end I did feel like Kate certainly needed a lot of saving but it is so well written that i took it all in stride. There would also be alot more explaining that i would have required from Adam than Kate did but once again that was all masked by him constantly saving her. (i.e. why did he feel it was okay to send her mixed signals about annabelle?)
