Just when everything was getting good, the story switches to Alistair in the end with no resolution to the Gianino situation. I just loved how Balthazar tempered his feelings for Nina Palmer until it was safe to pursue her. When the timing was right, her let her know how he truly felt about her. Nina thought that he was a gentleman until her last day working for him and that blew her mind. She was determined to get her dream going and did not have time for any relationships. Her friend with benefits turned out to be totally unexpected and Zar was determined to keep her safe, with no questions asked.
I loved Nina's best friend Janae Winters. Everybody needs a ride-or-die BFF like her in their life. Even more so, Gee Gee Valentine was the mother figure to everyone and the mother that Nina wished she had. I suspect with future books, we will find out more about Alistair and Hailey. AND, what's up with Mike? He seems as though he can have a whole series to himself with his crew. I can't wait to find out more. Come on Sonja B., don't keep us waiting. You already did us wrong with this cliffhanger!
