This story was somewhat better than the first book but not by much. The story started off good, the banter between the two main characters was fun. But again, that didn’t even hold my attention for long. I got through about half the story before, I got bored with the story and start skimming the pages. I did find that I like one of the secondary characters…. Farley. It would have been nice that he received an HEA but it was not to be in this story.
