I didn't really think I'll like this book a lot due to all those reviews and the impression that it will just be one of those purely erotic stories. But I was pleasantly surprised to find more in it than just numerous sexual encounters (although, I must admit, that was nice, too).
It's always refreshing to read about not so perfect characters, about people, who make mistakes and learn through them. Add to that a story line filled with passion, angst and tortured past and it keeps you intrigued till the very end.
I guess, it might not be everybody's cup of tea, and I can understand why some people gave it only a few stars, but I found myself fascinated by this book and I enjoyed reading it.
My only little disappointment was that there was no epilogue which I think would have made it more complete. But hey, we all have a good imagination, don't we?
