There were a few things that didn't sit well with me as I read this book. Firstly I found the interactions between Arielle and Daniel lifeless. The romance just wasn't there, at all. Needless to say the lovemaking scenes were no better. As a matter of fact, the first night they made love I had to reread the section because she never exactly explained what they did... had he taken her viginity? Were they just being intimate without intercourse? I had no idea even after rereading the scene. It was very irritating to not know for sure what's going.
I was also very confused about Stephen leaving her at the hotel (apparently not planning on coming back) on at least 3 or 4 different occations because he was upset! What a fickle man. Who would want that in their life anyway?
I also didn't like the bizzar situation of Arielle searching for her fiancee, but falling in love with her "guide" as he became once they set off in the jungles of Nicaragua.
None of it appealed to me and quite frankly the only reason I continued to read it after what was a good beginning until they reached Nicaragua, was because I did want to know what happened to her fiancee Caleb.
