it was amazing

The writing was questionable and needed a strict red pen applied to it (if she mentioned her inner goddess one more time I was going to spank her myself, and not in a good way), but the characters were fascinating, especially Christian. I actually didn't want to like it, but it turned out to be completely different than I expected (I expected a version of Eyes Wide Shut or *shudder* The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty). In reality, it's a really sweet, if messed up romance between a creature of darkness and a creature of light (and I love that!). Have purchased sequel. Am trying to resist starting it.

Andie Long totally agree Michelle x

Marcia Brooks found the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey looking to free e-books FIFTY SHADES OF BLACK AND BLUE THE AUTHOR IS I B NAUGHTIE

Claudia On the third book now... Still living every moment of it.. You might as well read them all. You will enjoy the read, believe me :)

Carly Nicholas I'm curious about these books, it has peaked my interest in erotic books now. Although i'm too embarassed to go and buy them in a book shop, i'll buy them online.

Juan Yes

Quinley When my sister read it, her problem wasn't with the 'inner godess' stuff. It was with how she said 'her sex' rather then my....
