“When I started reading this book, it didn't occur to me that I would be reading a BDSM book. My friends made me picked-up this, they all loved Christian Grey so I didn't bother to check out other book reviews.
I enjoyed reading the first quarter of the story. The plot and characters sound familiar (Twilight-y), but then again, I'm having a good time reading the story so I didn't care. However when the contract was revealed, and a few more chapters after that, from then on, I decided I can't continue to read further. I had to look for the reviews in Amazon to make sure I'm labeling this book right. So yes, this is indeed a BDSM book and I don't read that genre. I'm just not into it. I even had to give up reading my favorite Anita Blake series for the same reason.
I can understand why this became a controversial read. Just imagine Twilight (Edward as Christian Grey and Bela as Anastasia Steele) add porn and you now have an idea what this book is all about.”
