Inane plot, cardboard characters, dialogue that is both stilted and insipid, and the sex ... well, boring. I skipped entire chapters in this waste of paper without losing any plot or character development ... the latter because there was no character development. If a book is to be entirely plot driven, then the plot has to move (even if it is ridiculous). This book can't even manage that requirement. It is dull as ditch water.
