For the record, I really enjoyed this book overall thus my 4-star rating. Also, I love Lauren Dane's heroines...strong, independent and they own their sexuality unlike many heroines in the contemporary romance genre.
That being said, I was Team Mary all the way until the last few chapters from the end of the book.
It just brought her character down a few notches for me and felt inconsistent with the character. Otherwise this would have been a 5 star read for me.
