This is book two in a very popular series. After we got over disliking the hero's name--what can we say, we're only human unlike the protags of this book!--we really enjoyed it.
I wasn’t overly impressed with the beginning of the book. Cat’s personality kind of bothered me. I’m definitely growing tired of all the kick-butt, all-that heroines who do everything right and who all the men lust after. I didn’t like the superior way Cat reacted to situations, and scenes that could have revealed a softer side of her character were skipped (for example, her first date with a man since she left Bones). Before Bones showed up, I felt that the book was fairly average. Then the dynamic changed considerably. Bones made things interesting and stopped the one-woman show. The couple grew on me and it became clear that they truly cared for each other. Sexual tension and a particularly creative love scene (just imagine a liberal use of fangs) added some heat. There were also enough twists to liven things up and the fight scenes were entertaining.
