Hidden Embers - Stephanie Mayfield Well hmmm... there was a lot of up-front information about the structure of the unit in which she worked and the members of that unit that got tedious. I think if it was necessary to know, it might have been incorporated within the story, rather than all up front. I felt like I didn't get to the start of the story until maybe the 4th chapter? The "mystery" wasn't much of a mystery -- you pretty much knew who was after them. But it was a sweet friends to lovers story. I wouldn't say it was super hot, but it was mildly hot. The general story was interesting, but it just felt thin. Oh... and lots of things that probably could have been found/corrected by a copy editor. It wasn't so bad that it ruined the story for me, but it was enough obviously for me to feel like commenting.
