I remember when I first read the synopsis for this one months ago. It sounded like weird psycho-drama. And I guess it was in some ways, but not the way I was thinking.It was about Family. Ekaterina attracted Ryan because of her innate submissiveness but she sealed the deal once he sat at the dinner table with her family. You may remember Ryan from Deep in the Woods (Dave and Sophie make a return appearance here) where he first met him but we found out a lot more about him. He was successful and driven but also lonely and really looking for someone to spend his life with.It was also about Crying. Kat cried when she was happy. She cried when she was sad. She cried when she was confused. About the only time she didn't cry was when she pick up random guys for one-night stands - because at those moments, she didn't feel anything.I actually expected the Origami Swans to take a bigger role in the book but they were there when it mattered.
