Wow, so, I've been resisting this series for a long time, mostly because of the length of it. But I grabbed the first book on a recommendation from a friend, and now I have to admit, I am well and truly hooked.
the main character here. Eve is amazing, and strong, and passionate, and just plain badass
I also thoroughly enjoyed the mystery, even if I had it figured out fairly early on. There was still enough suspense to keep the pages turning fast. And I felt that the mystery and the romance were perfectly balanced, although the romance started earlier and came on a bit stronger than I'd have preferred.
That said, I enjoyed the romance immensely as well. Roarke should, by all accounts, come off as too much. Too perfect, too intense, too something
. Instead, he comes across as exactly what the story - and Eve
I can't wait to learn more about both of them as the series progresses. I apparently have a lot
of reading to do over the next few months!
