did not like it
Read from September 19 to December 15, 2012 — I own a copy

I tried diligently to persevere through the audio book version, but found the writing base, contrived and tedious. Not to mention one of the worst voice-over artists I've ever listened to. I finally gave up about half way through, because I simply do not care what happens to these characters. The author is close in age to me and yet she has a very poor command of the English language making her writing weak and flaccid...Nothing erotic about this book. The situations are so naive and if this is what women readers think is erotic... OMG... I'd better not share my thoughts on what's hot. They'd be XXX rates next to this nonsense!

I was not surprised to learn that the book is a plagiarism of Master of The Universe. Don't waste your time reading what I like to call "Fifty Shades of Boring".
