" I had been looking forward to this book for a while. I really like Jim, and while I find a lot of the plot lines rather predictable, I enjoy reading the stories. Having said that though, I was disappointed. I don't know if it's because I had such high expectations, but this book was really ho-hum. I skimmed or outright skipped about the middle third of the book it was so boring. The end was well done (although the whole Jim getting out of the deal with Devina because "he lied" seemed rather simple), the beginning was OK, but the middle.... Gah. I did enjoy the more active role Colin took and I enjoyed that he and Nigel were featured more. I'll keep reading the series, because I'd like to see how this all works out, but I'm not looking forward to Mathias in the next book, since I didn't care for him all that much in the first place. On the other hand if JR Ward can make him likable, she'll have proven herself an amazing author. "
