I really should have stuck with my gut on this one because I didn't like the 1st book but I was curious. You know the saying, "curiosity killed the cat" and it sure did kill me. The story was told from Olivia's POV which was interesting. She was a complex character and I was anxious to see how she and Alex was going to act. So when they hooked up, it almost felt rushed in a sense. Alex, in my opinion, is still a big mystery to me. We still don't know much about him. Olivia has tons of issues that were never cleared up or dealt with. Their so call HEA seems temporary, especially after all she had learned at the end. I am sorry to say but this story fell short.
