Can I give no stars?

I get the desire to be compared and mentioned along with that one lame series... I do, people want the money and fame... Well... I want good writing and a story I can enjoy. This was not it. I flounced at 46%

How it compares to FSoG... Well the writing was just as atrocious... The story was just as ridiculous and the sex was just as not sexy.

Just an FYI when a writer uses terms like vagina, clitoris and penis... I feel like I'm in a doctors office. No thank you.

This is just 5 chapters of a story that has apparently been a big internet sensation, obviously as Fifty Shades Fanfic.

I have to say that it is really hot and the sex scenes are practically volcanic.

The story has huge potential but the author needs to put the brakes on, slow everything down and add much more detail. The relationship between Christopher and Megan develops so fast - he summons her to his office and within about 30 seconds, he has his hand up her skirt. I think we need to see more
Pretty "meh" imo. I like Cosmo the magazine a LOT, but this? Yeah, not so much. Oh well! Nothing ventured, nothing gained & all that. ;))

Hold on dearies because I’m about to do some ripping ‘n shredding. This morning while enjoying a few RARE moments of silence in my house I decided to pick up Cosmo’s 51 Shades of Blonde installment because I had been putting off reading it. It’s no secret that the Fifty Shades of Grey series is HUGE right now, but if I have to read one more cheap knock off, I might scream, a lot.
Cosmo apparently knows how to hop on a bandwagon when they see one. Good thing they know a thing or too about fashion,

This serialized story from Cosmopolitan is hot. Right off the bat Jessica Knoll didn't mince words and scenes and had her couple defiling office desks. Christopher Reiss, CEO of J.S. Taylor, is very reminiscent of Christian Grey and Gideon Cross. Domineering, straightforward and shameless when it comes to sex, this sexy businessman is caught in mob business that sets a conflict of interest with his lover and ex-assistant Megan Altman. An aspiring journalist whose job assignment is to expose Chri ...more

Fifty-One Shades of Blonde is a fast and direct sexy as sin read. Megan is the lowly assistant with dreams of being a journalist. Christopher Reiss the high powered CEO Megan just happened to catch at dinner with a known mobster.

Right of the bat Megan and Christopher are attracted to each other in a flaming passionate way. But Megan is stuck at in impasse. Does she go public with the story she has on Christopher? Or does she let go for the sake of an orgasm?

Fifty-One Shades of Blonde is yet ano

I don't even know how to formulate a correct response to this.

Was this supposed to be mocking Fifty Shades? Because it did seem to, in some parts, but not in an overly slapstick way like I think Fifty Shames of Earl Grey did.

I'll just say it this way. The Adobe Reader edition had 30 pages. Of those 30 pages, about 15-20 were sex scenes. There was a very interesting one in the shower...

Also, there's a businessman tied in with the mob. Which is a combination I've always loved, but not in a

A very short and fun look into the world of Megan and Christopher. At times I felt that their was information missing which is probably because this is a short portion of a continuing series in the magazine.

Christopher was very hot and liked it hard and fast with a little bit of bondage. Megan was always hot and ready for Christopher. The relationship between Megan and Christopher is more of a cl

OMG there is something about a controlling man that turns ladies on me included. They are strong and frank. Who the hell wants to play games when at the end of the day you want yours and I want mines.This story was not long enough for me and I hope there is more. I thought something was wrong with my kindle and I kept shaking it saying what the hell????? Is that the ending no way!

Cosmo's Fifty-One Shades of Blonde is a very short story coming in at around 30 pages and spilt into five chapters, I believe part of the story was originally published in the magazine and has now been released as an ebook with additional added material. Obviously the title of the story gives away the fact that this is going to have similarities to the incredibly popular Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and I couldn't resist giving it a try. I was hoping for a short but hot read with a sexy alpha ma ...more

He happens to be with a mob boss and Megan wonders if the rumors about him being mob-connected are true. She heads out, hoping that her boss doesn't spot her. Megan works late one evening and gets a call from the CEO, Christopher. He tells her to see him in her office and he accuses her of leaking a story to

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a parody, homage, or what, but it reads like a very sad attempt to milk the cash cow that the FSOG trilogy (unfortunately) became. The title comes from the fact that CEO, Christopher Reiss, recognized her, because there are fifty shades of blonde, and she is the special snowflake shade.


I knew from the first chapter that this book and I were not going to be well suited to one another, be
The sex scenes were well written but that was about the only thing that was. There was definitely no plot arc.
I had quite a few issues with this one - there was no build up for the plot, plot holes, consistency issues, and more. I don't think I'll continue to read as more chapters are released.
Una delle cose più brutte che abbia mai letto.
Non mi scandalizzo facilmente, ma questa novella mi ha veramente fatto storcere il naso. Volgare e senza senso.

Quick & short read! Enjoyed the excerpts in the Cosmo Magazines for July & August and had to find out how it ended. Not for under 18.

Boring. Was blatantly copying 50 shades but with no anticipation whatsoever and storyline was not believable.
This was short and sweet and everything it was hyped to be. Steamy. Hot, and well Hot.

More fitting for Variations instead of Cosmo. Such a disappointment. Glad it was FREE.
