I liked the first half. The characters were so vivid and it intrigued me how they would develop. But then the second half became so predictable and overly dramatic. The excerpts of the other books seemed interesting enough, though. I'd skip to those parts instead.

I wish I could give this romance more stars, but it was just too short to develop a plot. It felt hurried along and cut off in places. Several plot developments started but were never heard from again...and I really wish the author would have investigated those developments, they looked interesting.

The book stopped suddenly and much too easily. I'm all for love conquering all and such, but in the span of five minutes?

Another problem I had is our hero held himself from consummating the relationship through all sorts of scenarios, and THAT is how he does it? Really? He showed he didn't care about her at all, no matter what the author wanted us to believe.

Lastly, I resent looking for, and thinking I found, a BOOK, only to find a short story! The story was 60 pages, with 150+ pages of previews of other books!

All in all, this author could be rather promising, I did enjoy the story (what there was of it), but with so little to go on it's hard to know.
