You know what I really loved about this book? Well, of course you don't, so I'm going to tell you. I love the love/hate relationship. The 'I'm not supposed to like you but I want in your pants' kind of thing. Much like angry sex, all the time. I also love that Gage says some stupid stuff to her. It's like he can't get his brain to function around her and he has no mouth/brain filter. He just spits it all out, then has to deal with the aftermath. That's where the angry sex comes in. I love the dynamic between Gage and Marina. I also love the way they met. How he made a complete ass of himself, it was priceless. Though how he apologized was awfully good too. I still don't completely understand what her mom's problem was, but secretly I wish she would've stood up to her more. I know, I'm totally wierd. I don't know what it was, but I got tired of her family treating her like crap. I wanted her to grow a backbone. Like I said, I know, I'm wierd. I'm not gonna lie but I also love how Gage totally turned around. He became a different man because of love, and I loved it. What he does for her was beautiful. I ate it up. This is such a cute book and totally think if you need a HEA, this is up your alley. I give it 3.5 hearts. I liked it so much, I wanted more.
