Despite the fact that the story is slow paced, the author cleverly escalates the sexual tension without necessarily allowing Harley to step out of her comfort zone, to a point where her actions are farfetched for her character. By using this strategy Patricia was able to create an effect where the reader had to believe the premise, while at the same time anticipating an ending that was not only satisfying but also one that did not disappoint.
