This might have been 4 stars if Nina wasn't so immature and argumentative! Everything Amaury said or did was taken the wrong way. When did they fall in love when she hated him the entire book? I like strong female characters but she was just plain bitchy. It wasn't a bad storyline but the story had the potential to be so much more. This was the second book in the series, and I liked seeing the characters from the previous book. I will read the next book in the series just to see what happens to Gabriel since he seems to have real problems and I'd like to see how he can overcome them. And I like beauty and the beast type stories.
