First up, I love that Ashley wrote an interracial romance where race and prejudice is discussed openly and honestly. I also like modern marriage of convenience stories. I thought the 'falling in love' bit happened a bit too quickly but Ashley did a great job building the sexual tension. When Lexie and Ty finally do make it to bed...whew. *fans self*
There are a few quirks to Ashley's writing that grate: run-on sentences, super manly dialogue where the guys don't use subjects (e.g., "Got no play here."), etc., but I still find that I can never put her books down.
