D.B. Reynolds made the sexual tension and the chemistry intense between Rhodry and Amanda. The different characters had depth and were dynamic. The story and characters' dialogues were great and the setting was very realistic. I was caught up in the fascinating and storyline. The pacing was a little slow in the beginning. Otherwise, I was eagerly hanging on trying to find out what would happen next. I just couldn’t put it down. It was exciting and awesome to read.
