I downgraded this book to 2 stars in the last chapter. Before that, I enjoyed it but I cannot hold with the way things ended. You see, if there's something I HATE, are control freaks who think they know what's best for others and don't listen to what they have to say. I cannot respect a person who forces her will and basically enslaves a person "for their own good" without having a clue what's going on. And that's what Charley did at the end of the book so she's been added to my list of characters I'd like to see skewered with a knife.Maybe if I'm not so mad in a year or two I'll continue reading the series. But I'm the type to hold a grudge so don't count on it.
