This book picks up shortly after the events of the prequel story and features several cameos from those characters. Katie drove me crazy with all her harping about her mother's teachings. I get that she was raised to be a lady, but jeez, being a lady does not equal being a doormat, and that's how far she was taking it! Granted, this story was about her breaking out of that shell, and Chase helping her do that, but Katie ended up doing a lot of projecting that made it hard for Chase to get close to her. Chase also was easily dissuaded from falling in love with Katie, making me think that he wasn't a true hero. Eventually, things resolved, but I wasn't that impressed with the journey between these two characters to each other. What I enjoyed the most was the supporting characters, and I can't wait to read each of their stories!
