This book seemed to start out really slow for me. While I was enjoying the story itself, I just couldn't seem to get invested in the characters in the story, and the way it would switch from Williams point of view to Jack's seemed more of an annoyance. Luckily for me, about halfway through it really picked up. I really started enjoying the characters, the story grew interesting, and I was able to lose myself in the tale. Jack is a hilariously funny good-ole Georgian boy and he had me cracking up several times throughout this book. By the end I was on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen, and I loved the surprise ending. All in all, I'm excited to get to the next book. Several of my favorite series have started out with a slow first book and then exploded, and I have high hopes that this one will be the same.
