I want to say Neve is my kind of girl. I liked her personality except that she didn't seem...nice. She seemed bitter at times which made me wonder if she had a backstory to explain that. I get that she was dealing with "being a woman in a man's world" and misogyny and such...
She was definitely comfortable in her own skin, which I liked. You get to a certain age when you begin to think, "take me as I am". You don't care nearly as much about what people think of you. That's Neve. Plus, she is opinionated and will tell you what she thinks even if you didn't ask for her opinion. She is the kind of woman I would have sympathy for but would have a hard time being friends with. Congeniality doesn't seem to be one of her many traits.
Although this was romance I appreciated that there was a story-line aside from romance. And, the author did pull me into this story so I will be following this series :)
