I actually like this book from a romance standing. Christian is the ultimate broken hero. I am confused on how Ana can be as naive as she is at her age, but I can let that slide... it is a romance novel after all. She is not quite TSTL, but she is teetering on the edge.

I did not enjoy the way the BDSM elements were used in the story, or the way that BDSM is portrayed. (BDSM is not something that is used because people are "broken", believe it or not some people just like a little pain... and we had perfectly normal childhoods)

I see why the author is saying that these are not BDSM novels. While there is BDSM in the story it is not the focus and in most cases is overshadowed by the characters and their relationship.
