Not as good as Trust But Verify
This is the second book I've read by this author and I found myself rolling my eyes at times. There are some good ideas and moments, but overall, it wasn't so great. The lead character goes through a lot, getting no sleep, so is on the verge of hysterics often, but is described as cool and calm. The main love relationship I was hoping to go another way. It may be awhile before I read Book 2 in this series.
