I liked this one more than book 1. I liked Larena and Fallon together (and I liked them individually as well). The one thing that knocked this down for me (1/2 star) was Fallon's feelings of betrayal after finding out Lorena's secret. So what? He would have done the SAME thing!
This series stands out in that while each book is about a couple, there is an underlying backstory that threads through each book. So. the big question becomes, how may books will it take to defect Deirdre? (I'd compare it to Gena Showalter's LOTU, so best read in order for that backstory!).
