This book is interesting. It is actually three novels combined into one edition. At first I couldn't get into it and I was a little upset with all the preoccupation with sex. But about halfway through the book, it got better. It's not the best written book available but I liked the overall plot and I fell in love with some of the characters and I'll admit I hated others. The book was disjointed in places but had a clear progression of the change in the attitude of the heroine. The love story was kind of bleh but I loved the ending. I just wish that the first half of the book was written like the second half.
