Gah...I'm so glad this story is over. I feel like I've wasted hours of my life reading this book. I think the romance was ok, the family drama I could care less about, the glass blowing was interesting and the sex was hot. This was written well but this author's writing style just didn't click for me which resulted in me never connecting to any of the characters. But it could be the mood that I was in so maybe this isn't such a bad book for contemporary romance readers.
