I've had this on my TO READ list for awhile now, and finally decided to give it a go today.
I enjoyed the heck out of this one. Ivory broke my heart, the things that poor girl had been through...heartbreaking. Still, she came across as a strong and resilient character that was a pleasure to read. Emeric, what can I say. He was HOT and SEXY and DOMINANT. He was also loving, and sweet. From the minute he set eyes on Ivory, he was done for.
That said, there were a couple of things I thought were kind of wrapped up rather quickly and unceremoniously. Joanne for one. Why was she even part of the book? Her inclusion was minor, and she didn't really cause any rift in Ivory and Emeric's relationship. She was a catalyst for him moving from his prior school, that I got, but the whole she pregnant and the baby may be mine was included and solved with minimal effort. I also thought the whole Ivory getting kicked out then barely 5 minutes later the situation is resolved. Again with minimal fanfare. Both things just seemed to be swept under the rug.
Overall other than a couple of small complaints, this one was a really enjoyable read.
