I like this Sole Regret series. The best part of this installment was the angsty parts dealing with Shade and his ex, and when I say best, it was hard not to feel something for Shade/Jacob after these emotional scenes. He has a sympathetic ally in Amanda, who feels something more for him, and once events are set into motion, their encounter changes them. The ending was very satisfying, with Shade choosing a path that was difficult, but probably one that might bring him some happiness. It was good to find out the source of the discord between Shade and Adam, and it was good to see that situation headed to a better place. Probably not my favorite in terms of the erotica, but variety is the spice of life, but definitely awesome with respect to the more emotionally charged scenes.
