The Appearance of Impropriety by Skye Michaels is part of the Horseman series. This book for me was okay. There is a little bit of mystery, a little bit of betrayal, and a whole lot of love inside this book. For me the character connections to me the reader was okay. I was not as invested as I would have liked but it is a good read over all.
Tori we get this story told backwards. We have her being on the verge of losing everything when we meet her. She then goes back and tells us the why of it all. I liked that introduction style made me want to know more about Tori and why everything happened the way it did.
I also liked Tori as a heroine. She is strong, smart, and loving all at the same time. Very much a heroine I can get behind.
Zack is a smart and funny character. With tons of charm, I think his secrets kept me from truly liking him. He just never seemed to be the kinda man I could see with Tori. But at the end I could see why I felt that way and how he did come off as needing a little more something.
Over all this is a good read. I liked the storyline and pace of this story. I would like to see more in the series and see where it goes next.
