I liked the story and the characters a lot, but it got annoying, how author stressed Genevieve's past suffering all the time. I understood the first time. She was held captive. Her kidnapper was a monster. She suffered horribly. Maya Banks didn't have to repeat it over and over and over again. I'm not simple-minded and my memory is still quite good. Every time I actually started to enjoy the story, the author went back to it. And mostly these weren't even Genevieve's memories she gave us. The author just said she had suffered and would never again be totally happy or well again.
