This book started off with such a bang and continued with a strong story line. The characters were well-developed and interesting. And then near the end, where the love scene begins, the story fell apart. I was unaware that the author is a writer of erotica. That is not a genre I chose to read and so this part of the story was just not something I found at all interesting. It was so strange to have such a well-crafted, wonderful story, then sex scene and then the end. I felt left hanging, wanting to know more about the development of Daphne and Ryan's relationship, not about how they have sex. I only wish I had known about the erotica part and I would have skipped the book. I felt cheated that I didn't get a real ending (real in my view anyway) since I really enjoyed 80% of the story.
