    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story
    Would you try another book from E L James and/or Becca Battoe?

    No. I did not care for the writing, or the narration.


    What could E L James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Come up with her own storyline, rather than write a so-called "erotica" story that so closely mirrors Stephenie Meyers Twilight.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe’s performances?

    No. I did not care at all for her narration of the male characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I purchased this book with one of my monthly credits, due to a little prodding from a friend who had just read the books. As I began listening I was a little surprised and annoyed to discover all the similarities to Stephenie Meyers Twilight. Both set in Washington, the same hair color for the male characters in each, many descriptive qualities, and others. I continued to listen, as my friend kept insisting that I would come to Love Christian. I'm still waiting.

    I'm not a prude, but the constant use of the word f--k got old REALLY quickly. It was also unbelievable to me that a virgin would allow herself to get into this kind of "relationship"

    The whole thing with the e-mails - subject, date, time, etc - got really, really annoying as well.

    Throughout the book, I found myself rolling my eyes often. Should I worry about being spanked for that?

    All in all, I was very disappointed with the book. I'm glad I didn't pay for it, but I really wish I would have spent my credit on a book I know I would have enjoyed.

  • Air Bound: A Sea Haven Novel, Book 3

    For as far back as she can remember, Airiana Ridell has always been aware of her extraordinary gift. She can intuit revealing and illuminating "patterns" in the air around her - whether in a spray of mist, in billowing clouds, or in the dense swirls of an impenetrable fog. Her abilities led to her placement in a secret government training facility when she was a child, but everything changed after her mother was murdered.

    Would you listen to Air Bound again? Why?

    Yes. I enjoy the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't think I could pick a favorite character.


    Any additional comments?

    I normally enjoy Phil Gigante's performances, but the way he screwed up Levi's name all through the book almost ruined the entire book for me. I cringed every time he said Levi's name. I'm not at all sure how Phil came up with "Lavey" as the pronunciation for Levi. Ugh.
