This was an ok read. I enjoyed the pace of the story once I got past the first few chapters. The heroine bothered me quite a bit with her "act first, think never" attitude. I understand wanting to have your opinion valued. I even understand wanting to be in control if your own life. I do not, however, understand stupid actions that place you in danger at every turn.When she wasn't insisting that she should could take care of herself, she was pushing the hero away to save herself heartbreak. again, I understand self-preservation. But it got old after awhile. Aside from that, I enjoyed the story. I liked the hero and the premise. Collins relied a little heavily on certain stereotypes, but as a light read it worked. I won't be rereading this anytime soon, but I do plan to read the other books in the series.
