4.5 stars. I really liked this book. I had a hard time getting into the first book because I made the mistake of not reading the anthology. Don't do that.
Charles is pretty awesome. I love watching him balance his feelings for Anna. He wants to be so protective but know he must let her do things on her own.
I have to say the bad guy was pretty shocking. I didn't see it coming. Can't wait for the next in the series.
