I managed to get about half way through the book. I cant finish it. one of the worst books I've ever... attempted to read and wont be finishing it. SO tired of her chewing on her lip, and her inner Goddess. In real life if someone hunts down ever bit of information on you, your cell number, wants to know everything your doing, mad if you talk to another male it's stalking. this dope thinks it's ok to do?? I dont understand the hype about the books to me they are just so horribly written I cant even struggle through.

Written by someone who clearly doesn't understand either sex or BDSM relationships.

Having been in the BD/SM community for a few years already, I'm missing the hype that this series of books has brought on. But then, if I look at the regular, vanilla society where this type of sexual play is "taboo," then I understand why all these women are going goo-goo gaa-gaa for it...and their partners for the after effects. For me, I found it to be rather irritating most times because of the lack of honest and open communication between the two main characters, which is a MUST for this type of sexual and emotional play. In addition, I was bored and it didn't get my engines running like all my vanilla girlfriends promised, but they didn't know I've already been in the "scene," which is why, I'm sure, I was bored with this book. I'd say for the masses, it's wonderful that it's bringing something taboo out in the open - I just wish that if the author was going to do that, she would have also felt more responsibility to slip in the extreme importance of open and honest communication, paid more attention to limits (both hard and soft), and stressed the importance of a healthy emotional state of mind and trust for the dominant before beginning this type of play.
