Yes, I admit this was a bold story line and the housewives took it and ran... I enjoyed reading this book at the same time as my girlfriends because the gossip factor alone was worth it. But, the book's main character is weak and her pouting was aweful... dragged out in the character developent. This narration was terrible... the narrator emphasized the pouting way to much. When the girls and I tried to listen to this book we were so completely turned off... so much for using the other books in the series during out knitting circle... we abandoned the first one after chaper 5... the performance was that bad.
I enjoyed the overall story quite a lot.
Disappointed.....VERY disappointed! :(
I have nothing to which to compare her performance, but thought it was very well read. Enjoyed her voices.
Nope....just a gaping jaw at the end.
Love book that are like 50 shades of gray
A great read
Loved christen personality and smartness of the character
It makes me laugh at the comments that anna uses
This book is horrible. I am so disappointed. How old is this girl they have reading this?
She is horrible.
I'm sure the author didn't mean it to be this way but I finished this book feeling dirty.
Not interested in the other two.
What a waste of money
sorry,... this is how I feel
At first I thought it was poorly written and kind of juvenile, but then I could not stop listening to it. The story will captivate your heart and make you want "more", this is to say nothing of the sex scenes.
bought it and listened to it several times before I absorbed it's meaning, didn't enjoy it first time but each time I listened it became more clear.
Anna because she really loved Christian but she could not get Christian to commit
The part where Christian shows that he couldn't go own without her.
a better story, better writing.
terrible writing, boring story,
???? no one
no I couldn't finish it
Can't do it
I was angry that it ended the way it did. I thought Christian would yield. At least it sets up the next book fairly well.
I read epic sci-fi and historic fiction, good non-fiction science, classic philosophy, history and little bits of what blows through my ears
I could write this drek in a coma. It fulfills all the one-time Cinderella impulses I am loathe to admit I ever filled countless journal pages with. Although the anemic character development, insipid dialogue, and gratuitous light porn is insulting, I admit it is also entertaining to the secret tabloid voyeur in all of us . Also as I refuse to read the following sequels I have relied on other's synopses to evaluate the whole story. With that remove I can only speculate that the author made a valiant attempt to nuance and explore the complexity of a Power Exchange relationship and failed so miserably because of her inexperience as an author - inexperience compounded by the dismal and infuriating performance of the narrator.
