Can still possess her with the slightest touchEmily still loves Duarte but has he brought her back because he loves her or because he loves his son. The lack of communication and the doormat heroine was the major drawback of the book The heroine just taking the blame for everything and feeling guilty all of the time It's downright irritating I guess expecting from a very young heroine to be mature is a lot to ask But after the separation time the heroine got a grip on her and started to fight for herself And the hero was a typical Alpha HP male I can understand his behaviour towards heroine cause he saw the heroine was kissing another man and then later heroine was apologizing for her deed But his cold behaviour and negligence towards heroine were just as bad as other HP heroes Giving 3 stars cause the hero was celibate the time of their separation The plot was engaging and full of dramaThe book was safe The book was full of OMOW drama
