This book was a whole lot different then what I expected. At first I was extremely intrigued with it, but then I got a little worried the heroine was going to be utterly annoying in her quest to be there for Caine. But she never let him treat her like crap, and she also didn't let him see her cry. I totally loved that. She was my hero in this story. And honestly, I truly believe the heroine was the real "hero." She was just that awesome. While I liked Caine, and totally understand his issues in the end, I still thought he was a coward for the most part. But I really did like the whole plot line, and all of the characters! It was a really good book, that was super easy to get lost in!
