Book reviews à la bookworm...The good, the bad, and everything in between.
What a ‘weird’ little story—especially in the character department—but surprisingly good. Both H/h had emotional issues, loads of baggage, and quite a few ‘masking’ techniques and they were absolutely great together. Oh, the tension, oh, the attraction, oh, the sexy scenes...But they kept pushing each other away, pulling each other closer, pushing each other away...Make up your mind people!
Also, great suspense sub-plot. Murder attempts, arson, trying to burn people alive, trying to blow up people...And the real villain came as a complete surprise. Good one, Ms. Gideon.
This was a great little story once I got used to the whole push-pull, emotional baggage laden main relationship.
On a side note; I never thought of high-tops as particularly sexy footwear, but somehow black high-tops with dangling laces on Xander truly seemed the height of hotness.
