Odd thing here and there was a bit annoying, such as the heroine seeming to think the hero should have blurted out all his life story in the 2 weeks or so they had been getting to know each other.
Not sure why we got the odd few paragraphs from the POV of her friend, when there was no resolution for her.
And something being mentioned late on in the book, with absolutely no hint whatsoever that it had happened previously, felt like it was added late on as an afterthought to make the heroines reaction to the hero not mentioning something more understandable.
But all in was an ok short read.
