I really enjoyed the third book and the character of Sammie seemed so interesting that I rushed to find book 1. So, I tried book 1 with high expectation.What I got was the instant "soul mate" trope and lots of sex. There was a plot, although the story was very compressed.I will say: I flew through this book; the author knows how to build suspense. I even had to shut the book a few times.Right now I do want to read the second book, but I fear it will be more like the first than the third. But I will probably give it a shot.
