I had mixed feelings on this one. In some ways it was different than the usual ones of this type. It was also at times somewhat predictable as well. In the areas I liked, there was some unexpected depths.
Both of the main characters were good but Jemma really the most because of her past AND all the things happening in her present. There was a lot of abuse still going on and further along in the story, closer towards the end I was ready for that part to end.
There are good secondary people in the story. Most end up being there for Jemma in varying ways and that I liked.
There are several twists and surprises and I liked how the dangers were dealt with.
The story gets points for the H.E.A. and sweet Epilogue. Still it wasn't enough to make this a keeper for me.
