Riley I liked him right off the bat, "he shoved a hand through his hair. "You're lucky I have my pants on. Anyone who bothers me this early deserves to see me in whatever state I decide to answer the door." He sometimes can say the wrong thing which can be funny, "we're just dancing, Phoenix. It's not like we're making love." That comment made her miss a step. Just being in his arms felt...intimate." He's protective, "the dread that some psychopath or rapist might get hold of her made him angry. "Like hell you will!" he said. "Do you really believe I'd let you do that?" I enjoyed this book, Riley he was a likable character.
