He's handsome He also spanks her fails to protect her sister as promised and continues to ignore her at the Le Vey's and pay attention to Lily even though he knows it upsets her He explains she isn't a threat since she is betrothed to another and he must act politely towards her out of respect Umm not buying 100% because she was fawing all over him and he did nothing to thwart her but he did no encourage her eitherThe beginning of the story was really dumb IMHO and the h was so immature almost TSTL but eventually her character evolved and she was likable I feel that there could have been a better way to show her character change I did like her strength and the fact she said what was on her mind It was the only saving grace that kept me readingI disliked the Twin characters intensley Not for their personailties but the whole finishing each others sentences It was truly stupid cartooinish and annoying They were flat and I didn't see the point of them being twins or the purpose of them finishing each others sentencesI thought it weak how Johanna didn't realize that Mara and Kirk had eyes for each other Her character was also very flat and I just didn't get her obsession with Kirk when she was so enad with her step brotherList of things were irritating venus mound just should not be used as well as curb it spanking the heroine to curb her spirit needs to be re thought the hero was borderline unlikable and i'm not sure why I was able to overlook his inactions and his overlooking injustices I did find myself eventually liking him anywayThings that may bother some readers sex between step siblings an attempted but failed rape scene not between H h insta lovelustA good point is the hero was not a rake or at least it was not thrown in our face He only has eyes for the h and no one has ever caught his heart before Since most of his admirers were done away with it it made me think he had few OWGlad it was free on
