This probably was more of a 5 star-er...I wasn't in the right mindset. It just seemed to be too slow in the beginning, then it caught it's pace in the middle but the ending was way too fast. However, I love this series it was sweet and the story didn't do anything I expected it to. Also the heroine was the best kind of imperfect--she's smart, tough, capable and mostly-ethical but also a little bit selfish and way too driven to be the best and she really does screw up bad because of it. the love interest and love story is also just wonderful. A good series worth reading.
