I can admit when I am wrong so I have to say that I gave this book another chance and ended up loving it. Rhage is this "monster" of sorts and Mary is slowly dying of cancer...who would have known that they ended up falling in love? I don't want to give away any parts of the book to ya'll so I'm going to keep this on a general level. When I started reading this book I had JUST finished the first one of the series. This book is the same type of story..actually the whole series thus far is the same type of story line...however the characters themselves are what make these books great. They each have there own little things that make them "who they are" and that combined with a fairytale Romeo and Juliet type of love is what make these books amazing ...smutty yes...but amazing!
