DNF. This is sixth in the series, which actually doesn't matter all that much because the Exposition Fairy has lots of anvils ready to drop in the name of true love. See how all these fierce loners find love and live on a ranch commune together 4-Eva! As far as the story goes...I was just sad for Maddie. Despite all the reassurances about not being judged for her horrific and tortured upbringing, she was right to worry in regards to the man she "loved", who was such an ass that he had no problem calling her a whore or accusing her of worse during his toddler tantrums. Hated him. Did not rate because I didn't finish and should probably have started with the first in the series.
