I liked this. The hero, Rick, was pretty close to perfect - very sweet, super understanding and totally focused on the heroine, Marley. Marley was prickly, but likable enough, I thought. The character names were pretty horrible (Rick Randy and Marley Mason). Their romance was fun to follow, but the whole thing struck me as a little weird. The back story was very serious, but some of the events were just silly and parody-ish. Or something. The setting is Chicago, but I think the author is British? The spelling of some words seemed like a British spelling and the use of certain words. For example, "infliction" when I was thinking it should be "affliction". I don't know. Also, the ending seemed sort of abrupt - wrapped up very quickly and with not as much detail as I would've liked. I enjoyed the story, but I found it to be a mixed bag.
