(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).

I did find this book a really quick, easy read. I felt it worked quite well as an introduction to the series and it was quite an intriguing plot.
The front cover of this book is fairly good, but considering the guy’s supposed to be a Sheikh, the cover art of him doesn’t really show that. Still, the cover and the blurb of the book are both really appealing.
I did think this book was a bit too short. The attraction wasn’t too bad; I get fairly used to instant attraction in romance and I liked the fact that it didn’t come across as instant love.
I was a bit unsure about why the two characters were travelling together. I didn’t think that was fully explained to my satisfaction.
It was good that the author had the characters able to survive on their own and that they worked together. I do think the chivalry was somewhat lacking in the book, though. I did like the fact that I got to learn more about the characters’ backgrounds as they talked… like their family lives, for instance.
I did notice a couple of errors in this book, including a half-formed line that didn’t seem to have any relevance to the storyline. I do think this story could have benefited from being expanded a bit.
It would be nice to see more of the characters and the world. This worked as a good introduction to the series, but not so much as a romance that felt like it had moved on from the initial attraction.
