I would say this is more a 3.5-3.75 star rating. I did enjoy reading from Smolder, I mean Holder's POV, buttttttt...if you know me & you know my reading habits from reading fic, you know I dislike switching POVs. But mostly? Re-reading things. Yes while there was a hefty chunk of the book that's new scenes or more of Holders POV, a lot is the same. Towards that last 30% of the book I was getting restless because I knew what was coming and that makes me lose intensity of the storyline. But overall I did like it. The letters to Les were helpful--overall I did enjoy the book! I mean duh, SMOLDER!!
