I liked this book better than Bared to You. Somehow, the depiction of the all-consuming, obsessive love rang true to me. Even the musings of both the H and h in the face of having to deal with the complexity of their relationship rang true. The sex scenes were ho-hum though. And the resolution towards the end felt a wee bit contrived and hurried. LIke the author tired out of any more devices to resolve the knots she's placed the characters into so... just have them explain it their behavior without any impetus for such exposition whatsoever (except they probably got tired of the running around in circles with each other).Will still read the 3rd installment though, with the definite improvement from the first.
