Yes! Warren has finally given in to Esha. Why the heck did he take so long. Didn't he realize he's way better off with her in his life. Both characters are mistrustful and stubborn as mules, so alike and yet so different. They are loggerheads with each other until they realize that they were meant to be together. Though there are references to characters in the first book, they are merely supportive in nature. Esha and Warren have this book all to themselves so the story is independent of the first book and can be read as a standalone.
