For me, this book was good, but nothing spectacular. The characters were extremely predictable, especially Melody! Josh came across like a domineering jerk, rather than a true BDSM Dom or even an alpha male. Everything felt rather rushed, especially with regards to the declarations of love. What made this book catapult firmly into the 3 star category for me was the small town itself. It's quaint and very friendly seeming! While this is a short story, I did enjoy reading most of it and will likely finish the series out at some point.
