Anyways, back to the point, yeah not so in love with this book. For those that don't know, it's apparently some fan fiction based loosely off of Twilight and you can definitely see the similarities between the characters- an impossibly handsome, super rich, kinda dark and mysterious guy falls for an average looking, clumsy, naive, innocent girl and pulls her into his dark and twisty lifestyle. Only instead of vampires it's kinky sex.
First let's start with the sex, which let's be honest is the reason why
It was also incredibly unrealistic to me that this 21 year old *spoiler alert* virgin whose never even touched herself would suddenly give it up after only knowing this guy for a few days and not only that but be willing to do some of the stuff that he's into all because he's super good looking.
I also couldn't root for the couple. The main guy, Christian (love the name btw), is a super controlling, jealous, abusive, creepy, stalker with enough emotional baggage to fill an airport. So what if he's rich and good looking? And Ana is just irritating (if she mentioned her inner goddess one more time I was gonna lose it). Basically all the characteristics that I hated about Edward and Bella in Twilight these two possessed.
And finally the writing itself is just terrible and redundant. Ana says the same few expressions throughout the book and there just didn't seem to be much of a story other than all the sex.
I should say, it wasn't the worst book I've read and there were some parts I enjoyed and that kept my attention but I just don't see why people love this book so much and root for this couple? I heard that books 2 and 3 are much better so I was tempted to read them anyway but I don't want to waste what little reading time I have if it's just more of the same.
So tell me...have you read this book? Did you like it? Am I missing something about why this is so great?
