I was looking forward to seeing how the trajectory of Jake and Haven's story was going to change after the end of part one. I wasn't disappointed with the story. Jake and Haven had misconceptions and their own hangups to overcome and it seemed like it wasn't going to be easy for them.
I think what I found most interesting about this part was the introduction of new characters. They were important to Jake and his past and I found it surprising how he handled it. I think Jake handled the person with more aplomb and respect I'd have given them. I also liked how Jake and Haven didn't jump right back into what they had before. You could really tell the feelings they had for one another left them shaken and they were tentative around each other.
While this part didn't end on a cliffhanger, I am still eager to see where the next and final part takes us (me, Jake, and Haven). Their story has gotten more interesting while retaining the chemistry they have. This part went by too quickly. I'm hoping Jake and Haven can work out what's holding them back from one another for good. I have a feeling their relationship will be tested once again before all is said and done.

Jake Harrison is everything that Haven Daniels hates about men: over-confident, born into money and too handsome for his own good. Haven finds it difficult to keep her opinions to herself and can’t help but tell Jake exactly what she thinks of him, again and again.
Haven Daniels is uptight, smart and a bit of a bitch – the perfect challenge for Jake. It doesn’t hurt that she’s movie star beautiful and has no idea.
Forced to work together, verbal sparring turns into sexual chemistry but men like Jake are trouble and Haven has had enough trouble to last her a lifetime.
Will Haven give into Jake’s charms? Can Jake peel off Haven’s prickly mask, revealing the woman he knows lies beneath?
