Intro Babble: Samantha Grace is quickly becoming one of my favorites. She never fails to make it interesting. I think this one may be on my list of favorites because even though the heroine worked my nerves a little bit, I can still see myself coming back and rereading this one.
Heroine: Gabrielle- At first, I had trouble with Gabby. She played both Anthony and Sebastian against each other too often when I didn't think it was necessary. But towards the middle of the book, her reasons for this became more obvious and Anthony gave her every reason in their past to make her want it to be a little difficult for him.
Hero: Anthony-In some ways, he was the protypical “I don't want her until someone else does.” Or as I like to classify it—typical amn tomfoolery.. That is always very frustrating. I did like Anthony though. He was a good guy. Perhaps a bit wrong in his decisions in the past but still a good man. I do have to admit that I liked Sebastian quite a bit more. I lobe the rakes...I feel like I should apologize for that.
Chemistry: I am not a fan of the love triangle. It takes attention and some chemistry away from the main couple. But I did like how it was done here. I liked all three characters and did not feel as if the triangle with Sebastian took anything away from Gabby and Anthony.
Ending Babble: I absolutely love Samantha Grace's writing style. There is just something about it that appeals to me. The characters are always interesting, the dialogue is lively and the romance and story is always well-plotted. She's well on her way to becoming one of my favorites. This one was pretty excellent. The only thing is, I made more of a connection to Sebastian than I did to Anthony. I am prepared to beg for a book about Sebastian. I am and I am not even sorry.
Update: I just looked it up and the next book is about Sebastian. Yes! Yes! YES!! It's called In Bed With a Rogue and it comes out in September 2014. *happy dancing*
