Allison's personality is as steely as her eyes. But hints of vulnerability, such as a traumatic childhood experience, and a fear of flying despite for the fact that she's an heir to a successful airline company, have you rooting for her. I found myself devouring this book to see if she'd let Alex, or any other man for that matter, inside her world.
I liked the fact that Allison isn't predictable; neither is the truth behind her father's death. And, as an art enthusiast, I also enjoyed the sub-plot about Allison's art gallery and her hidden talent.
