The beginning of this book is odd. Not bad odd, just different than other writing. During the first 3-4 chapters we are totally in Kellie's head. I think the odd part comes.from the author writing Kellie as being a little odd. Or maybe not odd just honest. The romance felt real. There is angst but it felt like it could happen to anyone. If you like this one, read Living Dangerously. It's a different story, which is awesome with series writers and its a great story.
