Bathing suit Flip-flops FBI psychologist Olivia Sotiris is looking for a cool ocean breeze, sand between her toes, and a break from her crazy, and sometimes dangerous, life. But when she escapes to the Greek island of Patmos, all she gets is a meddling grandmother trying to marry her off. None of the men there interest her—except a mysterious Scotsman named Robby MacKay. Robby needs to cool off, too, since all he can think about is revenge on the Malcontent bloodsuckers who once held him captive. But then he meets Olivia, the beauty with wild curls and a tempting smile.

I love seeing good things happen to good people JL Wang has to be my favorite character at this point- Wait till you hear his full name and his joke about a brother. In the grand scheme of Sparks "Love at Stake" series, this book was a filler. It did nothing to push along the war with the malcontents, nor did it show anything insightful about the vampires relationship with the CIA.
Because of the lack of excitment? I nitpicked this book a ton while reading it. Here are some of my gripes: 1. Olivia is an FBI psychologist, who apparently only relies on her abilities as an empath to do her job to such an extent that not being able to read Robby completely unhinges her.
Very, very irritating. On their third "date," they were already in love and Olivia was nearly ready to hand over the viriginity she has held onto for 24 years. Even though I think she was still on the fence about trusting Robby at all. I really think both of these characters could have been interesting.
Robby was tortured and Olivia had her very own Hannibal Lector, but neither of these incidents or people were ever really talked about. If they had bonded over their woes I would have believed in their relationship more. There was more angst over past hurts than current ones. How annoying. Why would they send a psychologist out on assignment where they know at least 10 people were killed?
It is not her job to analyze a crime scene or do anything with dead people. And then maybe the killer? I was irritated with how Olivia responded to this. She behaves as if this is something Robby should have told her from the beginning.
What she is unwilling to recognize is that this is a secret that involves a whole lot more people than just Robby. Not easy to tell. I think a psychologist would be able to figure that out But I did. I liked seeing the other characters again, like Phineas, and I think Sparks has created an interesting world.
