    One thought on “Betrayed by His Kiss”

    1. I've given this a C at AAR.The book reviews that are often hardest to write – as AAR staffers will agree – are those for books which fall into the middle range, the C grade books which aren’t bad, but which don’t really have anything particularly special to make them stand out from the crowd.
