I really liked Della. She was genuine and I believed her story and her fear. Woods, he was to die for. Man, he was over the top protective alpha male and he was HOT! The chemistry was smoking, the writing was amazing and the story had me hooked. Abbi Glines is a sure thing and she didn't disappoint with this one.
