Mel I just added this to my nook.

Rachelle OMG I can't believe you haven't read this book yet!!! You have to read it NOW nothing else will ever compare, I promise you.Amazing read!!!

message 3: by Tara (new) - rated it 1 star

Tara Lynn I'd actually say that if you read it, it's a waste of time. It's badly repurposed Twilight fanfiction. That's an hour or so of my life I'll never get back...

Read anything else.

message 4: by Leigh-ann (new)

Leigh-ann Sullivan I agree! Complete waste of time. It is vacant, Twilight wannabe, mommy porn. It could have been interesting had the writing not been so atrocious. I wouldn't go there if I were you.

Elizabeth  Rodenburg Punko I don't know how it could be compared to Twilight....they were NOTHING alike. It was rather kinky but other than that, I thought the story line was appropriately placed. This is the first book this author ever wrote. I keep that in mind with the sometimes inappropriate word placage or run on sentences....

Tara Lynn The problem with that is the blatant rip-off of the Twilight series itself. I'm shocked the publisher didn't do more to cover up the obvious origins of the story line in the first place. And, considering that the media has been calling this book "The BDSM book," it has NO real kink in it. How utterly vanilla.

Erin Nudi I'm reading this right now and want to chime in and say I agree with Elizabeth in that it is nothing like Twilight.

Amanda I have read twilight, and I am reading this now, I do see similarities with the whole "I'm dangerous, you shouldn't want me -- but I really want you" part of the story, however the two books are nothing alike in context. If they were, I'd have a serious issue with my little sister reading the Twilight series. I also don't read books to compare them to other books.

Terri This IS Twilight fanfic that was repurposed, it was originally written and published on a fanfic site by the author of this book under a different title, she then renamed it and changed some of the character names and "voila" instant best seller.
