2 stars for the first half and 3 for the last half, so 2.5 altogether, I guess. Despite how short this was I really didn't like the second Hero till almost the end of the book. And the heroines was just okay, but I liked her better by the end as well. The heat level was pretty high, I'd say it rates at least a 3.5 or even a 4, but i do wish the second Hero hadn't talked so freaking much! The ending was really the only part of the book I liked.
