The thing that will turn most readers off isn't her limited vocabulary, it's the repetition of words/phrases that she's confined herself to.
"Holy crap." This is mentioned about 23 in the first three chapters.
"He cocked his head." One time, this is used three times on the same page. If he cocked his head anymore, it would snap off.
"Dios mio!" Her knowledge of other languages is frightful - and overused.
All this mixed with a writing level aimed at young adults made it really hard for me to finish this book. At the start of the novel, she thanks about 5 people who contributed to the book. Did none of them tell her that it was like reading a children's book?
Unfortunately, the repetitiveness is only the tip of the iceburg here. To be blunt, the characters have absolutely zero depth, and the attempts at depth make absolutely no sense whatsoever. The plot just drags you along kicking and screaming, and not in any kind of a good way.Read more ›
This book was not sexy, it was an insult to domestic violence victims everywhere.
When a woman says no and a man doesn't stop, that's rape.
When a man threatens a woman with violence, that's abuse.
When a man stalks you, and your family, that is beyond creepy.
When you tell a man it's over and he still won't take no for an answer? Obsessive, abusive, and creepy.
These things are happening to real women every day and they are not finding it sexy. This is scary stuff when we are letting this writer teach our daughters that abuse is romantic.
I'm not a prude. I love erotic lit. I love an assertive male hero. But there is a difference between assertive and abusive and Christian Grey crosses that line all the time.
Stay away from these books.
Besides being repetitive, unbelievable, and possessing characters which are absolutely and extremely annoying, the writing style in general is terrible and the story appears to be a cross between Twilight and something you would read about in the crime section of a newspaper. I didn't even make it past the mid-way point of the book before I was a myriad of emotions including disgusted and appalled that I spent my money on something so ludicrous.
From my limited reading of the story based on the fact that I couldn't even force myself (see what I did there?) to finish it, I would like to suggest that you have some self-respect and leave this one in the bookstore unless someone is paying you a lot of money to careen through repetitive drivel between an abusive stalker and the world's most naive woman. I wish that I could get the last hour of my life back and utilize it to place the trilogy in the garbage and set it on fire.

Awful book. Truly awful. None of the characters are likeable and all very one-dimensional. The relationship between Ana and Christian is completely unrealistic and aggravating. Read morePublished 1 hour ago by Christina M. Gibson
Well, it's no literary masterpiece, not by a long shot. It's Twilight's Edward and Bella with different names. Ugh.
I’m definitely no prude; I love a good erotica novel. Read more
