The above taken from Goodreads.
A book I find quite slow at the start, with some expected bantering and bickering which made it interesting and finally ended with a different kind of smoke. Unexpected to say the least but then that's what makes this book enthralling in the end.
The initial love/hate relationship between Lara and Key was the instrument that deviates the story from it's main plot. Hence, when it finally reached the coming together/making up point, I thought all was well until the unexpected twist at the end... one thing leads to another quickly... tumbling towards the end and the curtain falls. Hmmm... overall an OK book to read lah.
