ok, normally i love the characters Gena Showalter creates and Noelle was no exception, but Hector??? Well, not so much. Me thinks the gentleman doth protest too much.. Seriously, his mood swings were drastic, they gave me whiplash. At the end of the book, i should've been happy that they got together (i mean that was a given) but i did not feel the satisfaction that usually accompanies that, instead i felt resignation.. So, yeah, did not work for me. And had it not been for Noelle and Ava, I probably would not even have finished the book..
