Plus, the LOVE/HATE relationship is quite fun to read about and I like that the heroine knows the difference between love and lust. That you can lust after someone and also quite dislike them as a person. That's the most original thing on this book.
However, I'm now halfway through book 2 and I'm not enjoying it as much as book 1. Book 2 is even more cliched and it has too much relationship angst. I HATE when authors use the worst excuses just to keep the main couple apart to create fake tension. I can't abide a heroine who just won't make up her mind. Plus, there a kind of love triangle and you all know how much I ABHOR love triangles. They are the bane of my existence. So yeah, my excitement for this series has waned.
