3.5 for me. I enjoyed this one more than the first book I think. I really enjoyed Carter (yum) and Macie. I think I was more invested in their relationship than Cash and Gemma. While there was plenty o' sex in this one there was also actual relationship stuff. I'm glad we got to see the development of Cash and Macie and father and daughter and clearly that development fed their own romantic relationships. Carter was one brooding McKay man...wow. Good book- enjoyed it.
