The story got off to a great start but sort of fizzled towards the end. I liked Frankie until we got to know her more. She's an A type personality that goes toe-to-toe with Reed. I loved their banter and their sexual chemistry leapt off the page. As Reed started getting more emotionally invested, Frankie pulls away. We learn why she's against relationships when we get a peek at her parents' marriage. Frankie doesn't want any man to threaten her independence. For Frankie, Reed is good enough to have sex with and work with but that's it. She pretty much treats him like a man-whore (which he doesn't object to initially). She wants no intimacy which means no kissing. Okay "Pretty Woman". Her 'no kissing' rule annoyed me. As the story continued, my interest in seeing Reed and Frankie get together faded. I would have been happy if they had parted ways as friends. No harm, no foul. For once, I didn't want a couple to have their HEA.
