Ok. I got on the bandwagon. Everyone was talking about it. This hot book with all this raw, kinky sex and s&m. I'm in. I will read this 3 book series and see if I can learn a few things and get hot and bothered.
So at the airport I bought the first book. I started reading it while sitting at my gate waiting or my plane in mke. I was on page 12 and glanced up as I felt eyes on me. And yes. Some weird ass guy is staring me down and looking at my book. Obviously he has heard about the book or maybe this weirdo read it. I prayed that I didn't have to sit next to this weird fool on the plane! But it wasnt just him. I kept getting looks from all sorts. An older woman wearing a "Jesus is the reason for the season"pin just shook her head at me. A business man winked at me. A frumpy housewife came up and wanted to have a conversation wiTh me about Christian and his sexy style.
Anyway. Book one was ok. It set the story up, had a couple hot scenes and I decided to buy book 2. So off to Barnes and nobles...I bought book 3 right away too... Why not?!
Book 2 I find myself halfway through and skimming the same sex scene over and over. Do these two ever stop fighting? Over the stupidest shit too. Way too much drama for me! The sex scenes are ridiculous and lame. And why does she say down "there" while talking about her vagina. "down there". Wow. Seriously.
Book 2 I also come across the term "kinky fuckery" and laugh out loud. Really. He has this hot room of fun"red room of pain" and it never gets used. And now the plots thickens.....NO. I don't want it to thicken. I don't want a plot. What happened to hot book of sex. This book 2 turns into a love story. A dramatic, lame love story. I am irritated and don't want to read on.
I took a couple days off.
Now. There is nothing wrong with a plotted love story. It's great. What woman,including myself, doesn't want a smokin hot, filthy rich, generous, sexual man in their life who satisfys all of your needs physically and emotionally. Duh....but I thought this story was about kinky s&m, not a love story.
I go back and start book 3. Oh by the way. Charlie tango silly plot at the end of book 2....really.
Book three turns out being worse for the "what I thought it was supposed to be" plot. They got married. Traveled around the world for their honeymoon, she gets knocked up, they have the same sex scene over and over. She runs a company he bought her, there is someone trying to kill them. They fight. Bla blah blah. Of course her best friend marries his brother. Of course they have kids and everyone lives happily ever after.

I liked at the end how they showed his perspective of their first encounter. That was an idea that worked well.

So. All In all the book was fine if you are looking for a love story.
If you were trying to get heated up....there was some hot scenes
If you were looking for a raw and explicit book. . Look elsewhere.
Maybe I am a bad judge.
I am sure some people think it was hot and naughty aNd I am sure a lot of men got laid more then usual because of this book and cheers to you if that is true. I hope it kick started some fire for a lot of people. But. It didn't do anything for me. It was $50 I should've spent on a couple of steaks or some sushi. I'm sure a movie is in the works and most movies are worse then the books so watch out.
By the way. This book also bothers me because it is giving women hope that they can change every man that's screwed up and they will live happily ever after. That is a fantasy. People change themselves when they want to.

Like I said. I didn't hate he book. It was a nice love story. Read it and let me know what you think. I'm curious.
