Just a slim hope for the partnership & series
The author commits, what I believe is an enormous blunder - Ava's behavior isnt reckless (that would be tolerable) - her behavior is actually moronic and demeaning. We expect our protagonists to have adult relationships, what the author does to Ava is cheapen her like a Red Sparrow bimbo. We get that she's stunning and young - don't make her randy 17 year old. Making good choices can be sexy. I'm not going to wait 4 books for her to develop some discretion - the Doctor in book 3 doesn't redeem the author's misstep
