Not bad...but not great, either. I would have given it another star or two, except for two things. One, the whole conflict between the two main characters, Emily and Stephen, just seemed a bit silly and drawn out. They could have resolved their differences much sooner if they'd just have actually sat down and talked things over instead of Stephen getting angry and giving orders and Emily getting her feelings hurt and dwelling endlessly on how hurt and betrayed she felt. The author kept telling us she was getting stronger and more confident--she had to tell us, because otherwise it was pretty hard to tell. The other bothersome element is that the whole nefarious plot just seemed a bit convoluted. Certain elements of the story also didn't seem to mesh with what had happened the prequel, An Accidental Seduction. All in all, it was an okay read, but nothing special.
