    I am giving this book 3 stars, instead of 4 for 2 different reasons First, the author used the F word way too much and it was always in such a crude manner that it was disgusting every time it was used The second reason is that most of the book was clean and told a good storyuntil it hit about halfway through the book when the author decided she all of a sudden needed to add disgustingly descriptive sex scenes All I can say is thank goodness I was listening to the audio book so I could fas I am giving this book 3 stars, instead of 4 for 2 different reasons First, the author used the F word way too much and it was always in such a crude manner that it was disgusting every time it was used The second reason is that most of the book was clean and told a good storyuntil it hit about halfway through the book when the author decided she all of a sudden needed to add disgustingly descriptive sex scenes All I can say is thank goodness I was listening to t...

    Icky enough that there was a romance shoe horned into this downer tale of a VERY broken woman and her ghosts but evenoff putting was the fact that the hero was the boss, and the heroine was trying to prove herself in a male dominated field, and he pretty much hired her knowing he wanted to sleep with her Yay for uncomfortable power dynamics As if that wasn t depressing enough I could not get past the physical descriptions The hero was described as pale, spindly, big nosed, black eyed Icky enough that there was a romance shoe horned into this downer tale of a VERY broken woman and her ghosts but evenoff putting was the fact that the hero was the boss, and the heroine was trying to prove herself ...
