It took me a while to read this one...it just didn't grab me! For all of Viv's smarts, she was clueless when it came to love! Hank was stupid as a character and Clark just wasn't assertive enough for me. It was just a really rough book to try to get through, much as I enjoyed the first book of the series! Since I have the books on request from the Library, I'll continue the series, but I can't say I'd purchase it for my keeper shelf.
