5 stars for both books. R. E. Butler knows how to write a romance, especially a multi-partner romance. I fell in love with Ash and Axe right along with Elizabeth. They each have their own personalities and the way the treated her! Wow, if only that could work in real live :)
I enjoyed the authors writing style and the development between the characters. **SPOILER ALERT**The only thing I had trouble with was given the horrific past the heroine suffered, she made some really questionable choices in the book. Like when she went off by herself with a man, not once but 3 times! No woman who had suffered what she did would go anywhere alone with a man. The final act of her ex-husband was a little over the top for me. But other than that, it was a good book with a nice romance.
