I don't know what it was about this story that made me not love it. It was a good plot, good characters...I just can't put my finger on it. I should have liked it, but I didn't really. Perhaps the romance went too slowly. Actually the whole story went a bit slow. I felt like I was skipping over pages too much. Greer was a tad naive, yes. Though Rhoderick was not always that nice. He was too blunt at times. But other than these, I would have rated it a 4. But I just couldn't...get into it. The interest I had when I read Ava's story wasn't there. If you like slow romances, then this could be the book for you.
