This book was not at all what I expected -- it was so much better thanks to its surprisingly deep emotional currents. (A case of don't judge a book by its cover as its cover promises a pretty typical romance -- which I am all for, don't get me wrong -- but it delivers so much more than that.) Jackson Davies, our hero, had more flaws than typically found in romance novels, and Monica Appleby, our heroine, had a core of strength that was as unexpected as it was welcome. Extra points for a secondary story line that *didn't* turn out all nice and easy as is often the case. I found myself nearly sobbing at the end of it, thanks to a well-earned emotional payoff, and the characters stuck with me for awhile in a way that most don't. Definitely looking forward to reading the next in this series.
