I read this because it was part of the Mann of My Dreams series. A series that once I got over my initial irritation with the constant POV switches which contained the exact same information, I fell head over heels in love with. Tinnean has matured as an author. No longer does she need to start each conversation with the character's name. She still indulges in the POV switches but they now involve different material, with different emotions. I hesitated reading this because I was aware that there would be lesbian content. There was but it wasn't over the top and it was limited to the beginning of the book. The book began when Portia was a young woman and ended shortly after her son became seriously involved with that sociopath from the WBIS. I wasn't very interested in her story, but that is my own issue. I did enjoy her take on Quinn and Mark's relationship. I also enjoyed seeing another side of Gregor. It was heartbreaking seeing him pine for Portia all those years.
