I know, I know. Very wish-washy. I like the characters, but I hate the backdrop of DC. In some ways it threatens to take over the romance - like the conflict between the two of them is the focal point of the story instead of falling in love.
The characters themselves work better than the plot itself, and the secondary characters (with the exception of Parker's relatives) are rather weak, and don't add much dimension to the book.
And I'm not a huge fan of politics. So there's that too..
But I'd read more from this author.. there was a lot of potential here.
