“I read this all in one sitting which is nice

know that she liked the shorter length of this story which was 203 pages. In today’s
busy world, people like her find that being able to read a story in one sitting
is a plus. So therefore, it’s best to keep up the pacing and not let the middle
slowdown. And… she didn’t mind spending
her money as long as she felt she got her money’s worth.

entertaining read such as this book, was important to her enjoyment of the
story. Plus, she totally accepted that this hero wasn’t the usual over-the-top, muscle-bound
fantasy so many romances feature. Instead, Liam was a guy who had to work at living
