Honestly, I don't like romance novels. They're trashy and just unappealing. However, Sapphire Ice is NOTHING like that! It has great character development and a great story line. This is truly a great romance novel because it doesn't have any of the yuck and lots of the "Awwww". Hallee has a way with words that makes you want to keep reading, even if it's midnight and you need to go to bed! Admittedly, the book took me a day to read, it was that good (but with three little kids running around it took a while to get to the review).
