Hostile Takeover

Hostile Takeover - E.M. Lynley 2.5 stars. Very inconsistent characterisation. I didn't mind the flashbacks in the beginning when they served a purpose but in the last third of the book, they seemed to only be adding pointless smut or fluff which was distracting and, eventually, annoying enough to skim.I disliked pretty much every character except Mathias and, frankly, didn't really care enough for him to be pissed off that he was spineless enough to take Chase back.The story itself was interesting enough to get me through to the quite sweet epilogue, albeit cursing and rolling my eyes at the characters the whole way.
