After a discussion about this at our book group I decided to see what all the fuss was about being as it only cost £3 for the Kindle version with the advantage that no-one would ever see it on my bookshelf. I have to confess to just skimming the first part and initially it just seemed like Mills and Boon with a lot of S and M thrown in.
Scarily by the second part I found myself being drawn into the story of Anastasia the inexperienced virgin and Christian her screwed up boss. It is all stereotypical stuff (apart from the end), woman has multiple orgasms even though she’s a virgin, the man can do it at least three times an hour – aren’t these people ever tired from having a job?
I scarily find myself wanting to know what happens next but can I take the humiliation of reading more? I have read that this is great as it is encouraging more women to read, but is this really something to be excited about or am I just a book snob? Am still at a bit of a loss to understand what makes this so much more successful than other books of its type but maybe some people can advise on this.
