The blurb for this sounded so interesting, but I wound up almost hating the book! Cole was obsessed with not wanting Gemma, and yet he gets involved with her. Then, he continually hurts her by saying that the relationship is wrong and running away from her! Gemma at least was more mature about the whole situation, but I kept wondering what she saw in Cole. Gemma's mom meddled entirely too much for my tastes, to the point where I wanted to smack her silly! The only redeeming factor in this book was the plot thread about the dogs! Not the author's best work, and I won't be continuing the series.
