it was ok
bookshelves: erotica, never-again, fifty-shades-of-no-thanks
Read from June 01 to 06, 2012

I found this story really frustrating due to the repeated use of annoying, sophomoric phrases and descriptions.

I started to cringe every time Ana mentioned her inner goddess or subconscious talking to her! Some people probably found it ‘cute’ but I found it annoying and distracting.

I read a few didn’t like the ending as they would have to wait for book two to see what was going to eventuate. I really couldn’t care less, especially about Ana, and do not intend to continue with the series.

On the plus side I liked Christian and the sex was hot, 2 stars for that.

Donna - so far I love the inner goddess and subconscious references... They're kinda cute and I can picture them when she's mentioned them in the book = )

Dee You two probably talk to yourselves so could relate, tee hee.

Actually I don't! (subconcious wonders if I do but don't know it). No that's a lie. I talk to myself in my head. And I often hope that my lips don't move as I do it. I don't want to be one of THOSE people who do it in public!!
