At the beginning of the book I thought there was a great deal of promise and I thought the twists and turns of the storyline would be good. However, there ended up just being too much that interfered with it. The writing seemed to be very simple and was all over the place and I was getting frustrated trying to stick with it. I think if the author had focused more on the story and less on the countless sex scenes, it would have made for better reading. If there was one thing that totally drove me nuts throughout the whole book was Jack's constant use of the work "pup". I have no problems with terms of endearment, but that one just grated on my nerves.
