I'm not really sure of the best way to describe this read. Did I enjoy it? Yes. Was it steamy? Yes. Was it well written? Yes. But all that just seems a tad inadequate. The story was well written and original enough, and yes it held some pretty steamy scenes but on another level I really did like the characters. They had real problems and I felt like it was better to see them face drugs and abuse than to read another damn story about a vampire/werewolf/angel/whatever-the-hell. Yeah Charlie and Kate had some serious co-dependency issues but their love was still gripping and pleasantly refreshing.
