This is the lowest rating I have ever given to a Kristen Ashley book. I guess maybe I should have started with this series? I started with her Mountain Men series, which is pretty well written and feels like an adult wrote it, and her heroines are feisty, sassy and not TSTL, they have the personality and mannerisms of real people. This book...feels like it was written by a hormonal teenager, the heroine is not feisty or sassy, she's obnoxious, makes super stupid choices and basically doesn't feel like a real person at all. I liked the first book OK, though after a re-read not as much as when I first read it. If the heroines in this story continue in this bent, I'll not be reading the rest.
