I enjoyed this one, although there was a little bit of an emotional disconnect for me with Christian. I'm not sure why. I liked the characters, but the secondary characters shone brighter than MCs, IMO. I'd like a book from Max's POV. He was interesting and I'd like to read more of his story.Heidi always writes beautifully and I always wish I could read more of her work (and I would but often the themes aren't my thing) so I'm excited about this series.
