Wow! I loved this book. I admit that I while I enjoyed the first book, I didn't love it. I couldn't connect with Livvie and Caleb the way some others did. I liked Olivia's fierce determination but I grew to admire her in this book. Caleb totally won me over in this book. I felt so bad for him by the end. I knew once they came close to her going to the auction that things was changing and boy did they. The author's ability to write a dark and seductive tale is amazing. I didn't expect a nice ending but I'm glad I got one. I was even intrigued by Matthew and Sloane. Very interesting. Matthew, you dirty boy! LOL. Overall, a good story.
