Each subsequent book in this series makes the female lead to be weaker and whinier. She is attracted to and "falls in love" with practically every guy that flirts with her (four and counting). The plot is so convoluted that it reads like a bad soap opera. Only finished it because it's kind of like a train wreck you can't take your eyes off of. Plus, there needs to be some serious editing, and I'm not referring to the Australian spelling and language differences.
