First of all I give 5 stars to whoever is responsible for the cover picture - get a load of that...... oh and those...... not to mention the...... (right girls).
Anyway enough drooling back to the contents, I'm afraid at the start I was a bit disappointed in the first half of this book for the following reasons 1) there seemed to be a lot of 'motion' and not enough emotion or storyline..... a little conversation then sex, play Xbox then hot sex, coffee then sex, oh look at that view then.... yup you got it sex - well you get the picture. Don't get me wrong I like these types of books but there just wasn't a strong enough story to go with the repetitive sex for a lot of the book. 2) I had a little trouble at the start liking or connecting with either Liz or Gavin much as, from book 1, each of them seemed selfish and 3) there was plenty of dissing Mick from book 1 and not enough explaining or recapping just why he didn't like Liz or giving what his understandable reason was.
Having said that, as the story progressed we see more of Liz and Gavin's character traits being peeled away and their vulnerabilities and histories were revealed and the final half just sucked me right in - there was drama, conflict, arguments, heartache, passion and it was sweet, romantic and had a couple of lovely ahhhhh moments - and yes followed by sex of course.
Worth a credit? Well of course I'm going to say YES after all who can resist a steamy escape into these passion filled listens.

Meh. That's really all I can say about this book. Was it bad? No way. Was it amazing? Unfortunately not. It was just . . . in the middle. My biggest complaint was the fact that all the sex started so quickly. (GASP -- I know, I know, I love my smexy books, but hear me out!). I wasn't sold on Liz from book 1, but I was willing to give her a second chance in her own book. However, this book starts off with sex pretty quickly, and I didn't yet have a chance to really KNOW Liz and/or change my mind about her. I still can't say I really connected with her or Gavin, although I suppose I liked them enough.
The narrator wasn't the best, either. Her female voices are a bit nasally, and I was able to zone out at times.
Will I read more of Burton's books? Of course; I loved the first book in this series. Will I try this narrator again? Eh, maybe, but I won't be going out of my way to do so.
