I read this to fulfill a challenge requirement. I didn't read the first book, but I don't really feel like I missed much (except maybe some m/m/f loving, lol). This was an interesting story, and while I don't mind sex in my stories (duh), it was kind of overkill. It's sweet that Con was Em's Faerie stalker for a few months before they actually met. Then again, she'd been dreaming about him for years, so it was fate. And normally, I don't have a problem with insta-love in PNR, but it seemed too quick even for PNR, lol. LOTS of sex. And she started out a 25-year-old virgin. What is it with virgins and erotica?? Anyway, it was an interesting story, but I found myself wanting to skip the "good" parts because I just wanted to get back to the story. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it. I might check out the rest of the series at some point.
