Lots of hot sex (though there was a scene involving a bench, restraints, and four people that I had to read twice and tackle like an algebra problem to figure out) but the romance came out of nowhere. Noelle and Jasper formed an emotional attachment immediately, and while I mostly liked both characters (thought neither of them were as interesting as the other characters), I felt their romance was almost out-of-place and I just didn't care about their HEA. I would have preferred for their feelings to start later in the story. I liked the world building and there's an interesting cast of characters. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
