Overall, I liked this book probably a bit more than 3 stars, more of a 3.5. There is some wild, crazy fun sex in this story, but the emotions in the second half of the story really take center stage. That said, there are so awkward moments and in my opinion less than believable moments regarding some plot line elements involving character reactions. The ending is great, a strong one where many just winnow out. Looking forward to reading another James book.
