Read the first two, have the last left. Quite racy which I like but with a better storyline than most erotica. The writing itself could be much improved, but I tend to be picky about that.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Yup I noticed the writing style, getting over it though. I'm halfway through the first in two sittings.

I was a bit worried when starting it that it would be poorly written as many of these fad books are. But I'm loving it!

It's a spinoff of Twilight, so needless to say it's about as equally trashy as the source material.

I think it is boring, I have no idea what all the hype is about, the writing is not very good and it is SOOOOOOOO repetitive. You can open the book and switch any of the sex/ bondage scenes one for the other, any scene for that matter.

I read the first book up to where they went gliding in the glider, and my kindle battery died, never bothered to charge the battery to even finish the book.
To bad it is on my kindle otherwise I could send it to someone, so they do not have to spend the money.

I read it just to see what the fuss is about...

And honestly, even my housemate has written better sex scenes. In my opinion, the writing is terrible and repetitive and it's blatantly obvious that it was originally a Twilight fanfic. I'm so glad I didn't waste money on buying it.

I stopped reading it because I was so annoyed about their constant murmuring it just seemed that every time someone spoke they murmured. i know thats majorly petty lol but I mean I wasn't keen on the writing, and I only bought it to see what the fuss was about.

I haven't read it, mostly because I don't follow hyped up things be it a movie, book, restaurant, whatever. I am thinking about reading it for one reason...prizes. A friend is having a "Shades of Fun" party and there will be a trivia game with questions from scenes in the book. I want to win something, and that is my motivation. :)
