The steamy bits were steamy, I'll give it that. The rest of it left me with flashbacks of when I too was in an unhealthy relationship with an emotionally unavailable and inconsiderate boy. And let me tell you...it wasn't nearly as fun or sexy as this would make you think. But we're not really looking for stable and nourishing relationships out of these books, are we? No...we're looking for the steamy bits. And in that respect it did its job. But why were all of Miles' chapters done with a center-text alignment? That got old reaaaally fast.
