This is the first book I've read by Shay MacLean but will definitely NOT be the last. MacLean adds such dimension to the lead characters, Margarit and Alex, that the reader can't do anything but root for their combustible union. The way she digs into their lives, intermingles their love/hate relationship are priceless and had me in awe.
The tenderness displayed by Alex towards Margarit's emotional marks are believable and show such affection that I was speechless, wishing for such a male in my life to show the same emotion boundaries. Kudos to MacLean for creating such a story and allowing fans to become involved. I look forward to many more of her writings in the future.
