I'd give this book 2 1/2 stars probably. The story definitely had potential, but felt rushed. I do not know if the author wanted to write a novella, but in my opinion she did not do herself any favours. Due to the shortness, the characters were not as fleshed out as they could have been, the falling-in-love/lust happened way too rapidly and there was a lack of coherence. This could have made a wonderful full-length book. A shame, really.
