Andreas does his very best to reject Phoebe. But no matter how many barbs he sends her way, she accepts him with a smile. Andreas simply refuses to open himself up to another person. Some things in life just happen, though, whether we want them to or not. Phoebe first wins him over in business, then slowly, in other ways.
This book was fun to read. I really enjoyed Mallory's writing. It was witty and smart. Andreas was a fantastic tortured hero. There was great action and I absolutely adored the idea of him finding salvation with Phoebe. BUT despite a phenomenal build-up, the sexual payoff was a huge disappointment. The sex scenes were rushed, vague, and terribly short. And that's a real shame because I liked everything else about the way the relationship played out.
There were some pretty big twists at the end, which I didn't see coming. And a satisfying conclusion. Almost 4 stars.
