This really wasn't the book for me. The plot was lacking and there was too much sex. The dialogue was sickly sweet and repetitive - too many declarations of love, exclamations of 'need' and telling each other how beautiful they were. The talking during sex was also non-stop to the point that one of the characters asked another to be quiet! The blurb mentioned one of the character getting cancer and I found myself wishing this would hurry up and happen so there would be something different to read about. However, once this event happened, the author handled the management of the disease believably. The last 15% or so wasn't too bad.
