    This book was a gift for a friend of mine and she loved it!

    I received my purchased book within a few days of placing the order. The book was in almost new condition! I would recommend this seller to a friend.

  • Only good for kindling Sep 5, 2013

    With all the hype and fuss that surrounded it I had to read it for myself. This book is drivel, derivative, poorly executed and it's original source seeps out of every page; i.e. a Twilight fanfiction website.
    I can see why immature pubescent girls may enjoy this rubbish in the same way they enjoy the Twilight books and films but why does it appeal to anyone over the age of 13?
    What makes it worse for me is that if a man had written this book he would have been accused of misogyny and hung, drawn and quartered in Trafalgar Square by every right minded woman.
    Since when did abusive, controlling behaviour become sexy?
    As a piece of erotic fiction it just doesn't work. There is barely a plot, the dialogue is clunky and is ridden with so many cliches I had to shower many many times to get rid of the stench.
    I watched an interview with the writer who proudly stated that her book was being read by people who don't normally read books. She said this with a sense of pride. Possibly that is because it reads like it is written by someone who doesn't read books. In fact it reads like someone whose main source of reading material is celebrity magazines and their ilk.
    The book does have one redeeming feature; it can be recycled into something worthwhile and helpful.

    I was a bit apprehensive in reading this type of romance but the author made me feel like compelled to keep going not only for the erotic sessions in the book but for life moments that drew me into the book....I am looking forward to reading the other two in this trilogy

  • A Life Lesson For All Mar 21, 2013
    by Suzanne H

    A fantastic adult look at a reality of life. Some things make you flinch or titter with self concious mirth, but soon you realize that this is a serious, unapologetic look at a slice of life. I love this author, she educates and entertains you.
