These two jumped right into bed. I know they’ve known each other for a while, but they have sex the first time they meet in this book. They sexual relationship seems a little rushed and they don’t spend all that much time together at first. The I love you’s come a little too soon, since aside from their sexual relationship they don’t spend any time together until after some of the drama happens. Maybe they fell in love before this book happened, since they did seem to get close quickly (and I don’t just mean sexually). This book has been the most sexual of the series so far. Maybe that’s not a fair statement since the book before this was Cole and P.J. and they didn’t really have sex at all aside from the “one-night stand” near the start of the book.
It seems like every time Steele and Maren have any time alone they have sex. There isn’t anything wrong with that, it’s just that they don’t seem to really have any time together that isn’t either a dangerous situation or them having sex. I really liked these two together, but the I love you’s seemed a little unbelievable to me.
