Solid 4.5. I love this author and this series. I'm absolutely foaming at the mouth for the next book in the series. Ms. Walker has done a great job of setting up the next couples/stories for us. So when I finished this one I wanted to know about Rock and Van.... like now. And there were a few unanswered questions regarding Jake and Shell. I thoroughly enjoyed Jake and Shell, although Shell's daddy issues drove me crazy. I was not prepared for the happenings....as they unfolded in this one where Jake and Shell are concerned...cryptic I know but I don't want to spoil anyone. Can't wait for April for the next one.
