Well here is a surprise! The free novella is way more awesome than the first novel.
Aiden was a dream in this one and Emma was a royally, pretentious and selfish wench (Basically, Emma)!!!
Connor had a little bit more character to him and unfortunately, Casey was still dish water.
I liked the gaps that were filled and to finally get a glimpse of the confrontation at the infamous Christmas party. Though I must say, I believe this book should be read after both book 1 and 2 as the opening chapter totally gives away the happenings of book 2.
Still, this was a real novella material and length, and I prefer it so far in the series. Can't wait to start book 2 with the prospect of quality and quantity getting better.
