The pacing in this book was FAR too slow for me. The author gave too many details of things that weren't relevant to the story, and I didn't feel any kind of chemistry between Roan and Paris. Neither seemed to have much of a personality, and I just couldn't get into it. I started the first story and ended up skimming a lot of it, but I did make it to the end. I didn't even start the second book. It was too daunting to read another 200 pages or so.
