I would have seriously loved this book...if there only was more romance. I like that the tension between the MCs builds slowly and they have a few very sweet moments now and then. But they don't act on it until the very end and even then it's not entirely satisfying. As it was it often dragged a little for me. Also the heroine could be quite frustrating since she was pretty paranoid and the hero (whom I loved btw) had a very hard time earning her trust.
I do see where the author is coming from (after all, it is a story about a woman who wants to be free and that should not depend on a man) it just didn't really work for me. I'm still going to read the other books I think.
