I tried to like this book. It has all the characteristics that I would like. Sexy hero, sassy heroine, fast paced story ... but it didn't deliver. 1- The heroine was SO sassy that every retort out of her mouth was bratty. Nothing like reading immature convos between the H/h & others throughout the whole book. 2- The ex-marine cop who makes stupid decisions.3- The "He's hot so I'm in love" mentality. 4- The sex. Some was hot but I ended up skimming all of the sex scenes after the first. Who wants to read this: "His body, mind, and soul were possessed with only one aim. The age-old ritual of mating." Ugh. That is not hot.
