This book had a nice plot but I had a little bit of an issue with the way the story flowed. I felt it was a little jumpy and disconnected. I can't exactly pinpoint what was wrong so I'm not sure whether it is an editorial issue or a writing one. I tend to "feel" what the characters feel but somehow I just could not feel the emotion of the story. In fact, it felt staged. I think maybe it lacked background or insight into the characters. Whatever was there felt brief and abrupt. I don't usually like to give a negative review, but I feel if this story is tweaked some more with a little bit of character and background buildup and some editorial work, it could turn into a smashing story because the romance factor is definitely there.
