Holly was fun and witty. Though she held herself back from forming strong attachments she wasn't completely closed off. She was still open and honest. I really liked her personality.Pace wasn't your typical alpha-athlete. Though he was the star of the team, it bothered him that people thought of him so. Instead of coming off as a martyr, I found him to be somewhat refreshing.The issue of trust between the two of them was the main source of contention. I think this worked because both were upfront about not trusting the other, and because the reasons each presented were believable. Overall I really enjoyed the book. I'm anxious for the next one.
