Read it said:
Starts well enough but I nearly threw the book across the room when the main character (who is a single New York woman) rejects her attractive, fit, nice, and wealthy boyfriend’s attempts at matrimony. He wouldn’t stay single a nanosecond in New York! The main character’s real love interest turns out to be a long-haired, tattooed young guy with bulging biceps, a motorcycle and a dark past who (get this) likes to talk sensitively about their relationship and his feelings. Beyond ridiculous.

I liked this book and its characters. It is worth sticking with. If you do you will find out the protagonist's "attractive, fit, nice, and wealthy boyfriend" is not all he appears to be. Also the love interest is a good guy and it is worth looking beyond tattoos and biceps (and why should that matter?). This is my 2nd book by Unger and I liked it much better than Die For You. The ending might leave a little to be desired but I felt it was realistic if not all wrapped up neatly.
