I was undecided on my rating...but I'm going with 3.5-4 stars

I hated Loryn...her type of heroine is not my favorite. How many times could she just accept Lucas' flip floppy ways? I didn't like her whiny attitude, but he did treat her awful sometimes.
While I liked Lucas for the most part, there were moments when I was like... Seriously?!
In the beginning, Lucas' early thought processes were so much to follow. I had a bad case of ADD.
I wanted to see more of a relationship develop that included Amelia and instead it was more focused on the sex and drama happening in their relationship. I think the book could have been better developed without other characters' roles so it focused more on them.
My last thing is just grammar and editing. With the book being set in the US I think it would be best to have an American editor to help bridge the language difference. Whilst stuck out to me like crazy and boot instead of trunk. It's minor, but was enough to make me get pulled from the story.
