We gave this an A.:
What also makes this romance so special is the topic of politics. Although specific parties are never named, it is obvious from the start that Aaron and Gwen have different outlooks about society in general and about the role of justice. Yet this does not keep them from becoming friends and from realizing that in spite of their differences they both care deeply about doing the right thing, and that both are able to look beyond boundaries. This refusal on the author’s behalf to paint her protagonists black or white extends to the minor characters. Clay is a perfect example. You think you have him pinned down after that first scene, but while he does not change his spots completely, he is capable of revealing unexpected facets. With the exception of one very minor character, no person in this book is either all good or all evil.
