This was just okay for me. I have issues with the flow, as with the first book. There are moments when an event in history is mentioned, cuing a flashback only to not flash back. Other times there are flashbacks thrown in at seemingly random times.
The sex scenes were almost relentless and repetitive. The abundance of long sex scenes reminds me of a discussion between Liv and Dean towards the end regarding how they may be "using an intense sexual relationship as a substitute for connecting on emotional and intellectual levels." The exact same thing could be said about this story.
I'll finish the series but I wish I was already done.
