The first part of this book reads almost like a straight erotic novel. At one point I was thinking that there was almost too much sex. But then the whole tempo of the book slows down, but not in a bad way, to be more of a romance. And once the romance begins it’s just beautiful. This is a very emotional story full of love and the ability to forgive and move on.I very much was drawn into the two main characters of the book. They were both strong but they each had their secrets that had shaped their lives and that just had me quickly turning pages. It was a really good book and I would definitely recommend it.
