Is this book shorter than the others? I know I skipped some of it, but it took me less than 2 hours to read. I think half of it was sex scenes. Too many. I skipped them, aside from the start of the first one. The story was good, but the book was half sex. I think this is really a prequel to the rest of the series, since Missy isn't with Graham yet and Rafe isn't the head of the council.
