I liked this one a LOT better than the first book. These guys grew together. I appreciated that Mary was just "average" but it didn't matter to Rhage and that Mary's body not being "perfect" also didn't matter. Mary's illness caused a good plot point in the story when it came to them deciding to make a go of it despite the future she might have. Rhage not being able to feed from her and how it was handled was also done very well. I also liked that Mary made Rhage's beast into her pet :) We had bad villians to mix things up enough.
Overall, I really enjoyed this one and appreciate the head start we get into Z-Bella story.
