I read some 1 star reviews and thought man i would hate this book. but it just goes to show that we all relate to stories differently and a 5 star average review doesn't mean it will be a good read every time. (mental note: always dare to try)
back to the book, I really loved the characters. while it is a little odd that the unyielding "warrior" would pop the "my love" hearings so early in the story, the softness of the story was very dear to me.
I do think think though, if you prefer a tougher lady, you will have difficulties liking the book. the heroin is not weak, but she is not the screaming fiery type. I think that's why I like it.
