I really enjoyed both books in this set a lot. They were both fun easy romances. I loved Holly and Stephen together as well as Cassie and Adam. Although it was a lot  harder to like Adam as he was such a control freak. He acted like a butt through a lot of this book I would have liked more back story especially in Adam. I did feel like I was there with the characters in both books. I did feel the romance was a little  rushed with Adam and Cassie .after two years and Cassie quits Adam as well as Cassie are so attracted to each other but it was still a good book and I enjoyed it a lot. I had no problem I had no problem with keeping my attention on both books. I really liked the plot and the pace for the most part. I did love how Cassie's family was so close. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of these books and I recommend.
