I'm more of a spy thriller fan but this would rank in my top 15
The intensity of the book was great.
Gave all the characters personality.
Clearly a man trying to write from a womans point of veiw, some men do this well, NOT this time.
I enjoyed this book. It was fun, entertaining, stimulating and sexy to the nth degree.
That's all!! and that's enough because it isn't trying to be great literature. I didn't want it to have a hidden social message, a 'moral of the story' element. Just good bawdy lets try some at home, sex. We are grown ups and we can enjoy this if we please.
I love a good book but thanks to dislexea i suck at reeding speling and ya. so bring on audio fiction!
It is well writen, and who dosent like a littel smut once and a wile. It is a Twilight fan fic though you can tell.
I like fifty (Mr. Grey) he is so complacated and fun to fallow and figure out.
She has a nice voice to lisson to dose femail voices well.
... Did they really put that on film...
Voice is a littel descracting when doing mail voices, and words are repeted... ALOT!!!!
Any one interested in hard core sex scenes.
The story is badly written to begin with. But on top of that it turns to porn in chapter 8. I'm not a prude but it's better to leave some things up to the imagination.
Sure. It wasn't the performer's fault that this was poorly written.
All of them.
I won't read more from this author.
People who enjoy Twilight or don't care if characters have personalities, depth or a background. People who do not mine horribly childish descriptions repeated throughout a book. People who do not mine their authors with no sense of story telling. I think young girls will like this book.
Something cerebral, my brain needs to recover.
The narrator was fine. I think she fit the style of the weak "heroine" of the story.
Not one that I could think of. Thank goodness it was short.
The repetitive terms really angered me. It told me this author has a very limited vocabulary and the characters were as flat as cardboard so that tells me the author has no imagination. I really wish I would have paid attention to the reviews. I tried this in book form first and thought it was me. After trying it in audio form, I know it's not!
Yes. Storyline is awesome.
No book I've read compares to the "Shades" series
Love story on crack!
Would have been a better book without the exhaustingly long gratuitous sex scenes, although I assume that most people are attracted to the book for that very reason.
I wouldn't bother reading any of the other books in the series.. Let me guess what happens next? They get together, she tries to 'change' him, they have lots more SnM sex, they separate... get back together blah blah.. I might be completely wrong of course.
Good narration. Quite enjoyed Becca's voice and narration style.
Having said all that... if I got the royalties that the author has... I'd be laughing all the way to the bank.
If it wasn't so predictable, wasn't so badly written, wasn't such a ridiculous story. If the characters weren't so dull, if there was a plot, if the ending was more than just the end of another lousy sentence and IF there was more to it than a wealthy basket case with mommy issues meets miss seriously dull goodie two shoes and indulge in awkward sex... then maybe it would qualify for as a Penthouse Letters submission.
Actually, if it had come with illustrations... maybe it could have verged on entertaining.
Held the repetition to maybe three or four repeats of the same quips, same predictable descriptions of emotion, physical sensation and absurd fascinations. One of the main characters (Ana Steel) is amazed by stuff that would put high school kids to sleep.
mediocre, average, apathetic
Disappointment and very curios as to what's happened to the world where a book like this actually goes main stream.
Yea... E.L. James, give up your day job !, oh, and you owe me a credit on Audible !
I dont typically write reviews but I wanted to give kudos to Becca Battoe for an impeccable reading. She has such emotional expression. One of the best readers I've come across.
