3-3.5 stars. I liked this book, but not as much as I expected to. The characters were interesting and felt very real with the foibles and eccentricities of real life. What didn't work for me was the way this book read very much like a romantic suspense. The "on the run" theme just got very distracting for me and detracted from my enjoyment of seeing Rory and Yamane fall for each other.
