I am a sucker for the HEA and really enjoyed this book. Probably closer to a 4.5 star for me.The characters in a book are what typically do it for me - if they are interesting and I want to know more about them, I tend to enjoy the story. This one is no different. I don't think there was one character here that I didn't like. Adam, Dell and Brady...yikes. If I need to move to find guys like this, just tell me where to go. All have their issues but they all care for and love each other. Also, who can pass up a guy who cares for animals?? Lilah was the right mix of tough and not so tough. She too had her baggage but she was a believable character.I have a number of raving reviews in my update feed on the other Shalvis books and I have to say, my friends are right. Great story, great characters - go read it.
