This story is so much better than what we got in books one and two of this series. It almost made me suspect it was someone else who wrote this one. At least for the first half of the book, which is a solid 5 stars. Then, I got to the second half, and gave it a solid 3. Ryker and Scarlet’s story is actually pretty awesome, and I loved it overall. I was so hooked on it for the entire first half. But in the second half, there was a repeat of the same recipe from the first two books where the hero got mad at the heroine over something pretty minor, made a huge deal out of it, walked out on the heroine. She ended up having to apologize, but I have to be honest and say that I didn’t get why. I was so lost there. They had been together for a week when Ryker threw his little fit (in which he really came across as pretty juvenile). And I felt that it had been an honest mistake on Scarlet’s part. The very ending seemed a little rushed too, where we get a bit of a recap of them in the future in two short paragraphs. Anyways, to bring this to an end, this book is worth a shot and can be read as a stand-alone.
