I loved this book right up to the pointless threesome scene. I get what the character was trying to accomplish, but all I got out of it was that he was a selfish asshole. I actually hated the character, probably one of the first times it has happened.That being said, the drop in rating is not because the character (an asshole can be well written), but that we had a quick everything solved in a few paragraphs ending. The author is so much better than that. Read the book, but stop at 84%, you can come up with a more satisfying ending.
