There are so many things I liked about this book. I consider it very romantic. Watching Julia and Rafe change and grow, due to their relationship, kept me turning the pages. And, the sexuality in the book is very warm, but not overstated. Finally, I found this book to be very tempestuous, emotional--something I haven't seen in a new book, for a long time.
