This was great until about the 75% mark. Then things went to heck. We end up with the same thing as the first book with the heroine being stubborn and clueless. The hero is slightly clueless, but the real problem is Emmie. She really becomes ridiculous and fairly unlikable by the end.
It's a shame because the pacing and story in this one were much better than the previous installment. It could have rated higher if it hadn't gone off the rails for the last 25%.
