** spoiler alert ** Not really sure how I feel about this one. I guess it was okay. There was some pretty intense non consensual BDSM stuff at first. All very explicitly told then the author shifted to a vague generalization of the sort that says "and during the next two weeks he did this to her and then that with a touch of the other and she hated it all but she did come." So any actual change in her attitude and acceptance of her "darker" desires was not really shown. Another couple of sex scenes that weren't real clear on some details, then she escapes and he finds her in the jungle and helps her get back to the US. That didn't seem in character at all considering we never really saw him change from the very mean man he started out. And he wasn't just one of those grumpy guys but he was truly sadistic so it was hard to believe in his sudden change. Hmm...
