There was not a real story line to this book, it was soft porn and the author's language skills are seriously lacking
The storyline is too simple and does not have the complexity of a novel written for adults. I also found that James used the same language over and over, especially for the sex scenes making the whole novel boring and predictable.
She did not come across as an adult, she came across as a whiny, high-pitched teenage girl.
If the characters were written a little more human, there is so little focus on them as people and characters and too much focus on Anastasia whining about whether sex with Christian is errotic or abusive, she's a very intelligent adult having an internal battle like a 5 year old.
Chapter 1, boring. Chapter 2, boring. Chapter 3, boring. I could not get past that. The book is written for teenagers and yet apparently has some incredible smut in it, but I could not get past the ridiculous set up. The narrator is also very terrible. She sounds like she should be cracking her gum and twirling her hair around her finger. Awful and I should have listened to others who warned me about this.
no, because the story is not that great
The book consist mostly of the two communicating over the internet
I really enjoyed the reader, great job
If you want graphic sex, listen to this book. The writing is not remarkable and the performance is equally bad. It is basically a sex novel with no substance. I did not enjoy it at all.

A fifteen year-old, and they shouldn't be allowed. If you want a fairly decent book in this vein, try Anne Rice (Writing as Ann Rampling,) in the Sleeping Beauty series. Audible has it.
Nothing erotic so it hardly matters
Anger at the complete and total unbelielability of any of the characters.
I had no problem with the narrator. Thought she did her best with this novels characatures- oops- I mean characters.
An plot would have improved the experience. I think there should be a drinking game that accompanies this tome. You must drink one shot when the narrator says "Oh my". 2 shots for a word with more that 3 syllables.
I was disappointed there wasn't an actual story. I am disappointed in myself for listening to the person who told me this was good book.
The narration matched the story.
The vapid voice used by the voice actor for the narrator certainty matched the vapidity of the narrator.
How could there be 2 more?
she really sucks and not in the good way ;-)
more sex less BS
Becca is simply not very sexy
The narrator's voice, inflection, tone, etc. was not pleasant and kept me from wanting to listen further.
why did I buy this book? Ugh, such a waste of my time. The reader irritated me from the beginning so I put the book down within 15 minutes. But picked it back up a week later to try and get past the "little girl" voice and breathiness. Getting past all the story lead in was a drag and painful as well. Really feels like a woman in her early 20's wrote this. When you finally get to the "intimate" parts they are so text book. There are much better written exotica, yes even on Audible, than this drivvel.
I work out in an all female gym. The other women have been tittering about this book so I had to see what the fuss was about. I don't normally read top 100 books. Now that I have read this I will snicker everytime the "ladies" bring it up. Cause I know their level of intellect is showing.
Absolutely irritating. Hated the breathy pauses and I am not meaning the sex scenes. the upward lilt of all the "Oh My" made me turn this off very quickly.
Save your credits and money. Middle ground. Could be worst and could be better.
she tries to do different voices for the diffferent characters. would be better to have others to jump in for the short brief spots.
no. no. nooooo
