Nicole Rae | 28 comments I have been meaning to get this series, but I am so on the fence with it. I have heard that every woman in America is reading and loving it, but I'm just not so sure. I'm really not into this type of erotica. However, I heard the plot was great and the reader for the audio version is really good. Any opinions on this would be appreciated.

Audible's return policy makes this no-risk. Try the first one, if you don't like it you can return it. If you do like it, then you can get the other two. I'm only a couple of chapters into it so I can't say anything about the story, except that my best friend read the first and immediately wanted the next two. All you can do is give it a try.

They have a return policy??? I never knew that. That's good to know...

Anyway, I have heard the same thing about it. My sisters and many friends have said once you read the first you will crave and be addicted to the other two. Maybe I will give it a shot:)

Certainly not every woman. I haven't and won't. I've heard the writing is horrible, and given that it started as Twilight fan-fic indicts it even more for me.

Dee (austhokie) | 1760 comments if you want to read it, you can find it for free online still - I believe the fanfic was titled Master of the Universe and the author was snowqueen/snowdragon - something like that

I haven't heard much about the audiobook since they re-did it...the first version was horrendous from the multiple reviews that I saw for it - but they apparently withdrew it and re-optimized it and fixed it - as well as removing negative reviews, but leaving all the positive ones...

Ancestral Gael | 168 comments There are snippets and links to the free, pre-published version of the book all over Goodreads (usually in people's reviews). It will give you and idea of whether or not you wish to read, or listen to it.

I tried reading it in print form. I found myself speed reading. Nothing "happens" until well after page 135. The writing is terrible, and I thought that I could not take it if the protagonist said "Holy crap" one more time. She did and I returned the book to the library.

That is just one woman's opinion

As I've said elsewhere, I skipped most of the sex in my desperate search for a plot.

check out the reviews on audible ....they don't sound very happy. I had also considered this, to see what the fuss was about , but not sure I want to waste a credit

Cassandra Farlik | 1 comments I felt my IQ drop with every page I slogged thru and thought the third was slightly better than the first two. could have been a great series....but the writing was too poor to overlook.
