I am unfamiliar with this.
Oh, I just looked it up. Hmmm. looks quite fun. Actually it looks rather like something I read fairly recently, only there were Vampires in that as well.

Isn't it just some bad Twilight Fanfic with the characters renamed for legal reasons ;)

Take it from someone who has just finished reading it. Boring, repetitive, no plot, storyline or direction. Even the saucy bits are not that saucy!! Over hyped! Its just a pimped up mills and boon minus a storyline....

However if your into being tied up, blind folded, whacked and ordered around by a man with serious issues, it could be for you!!

Wow, does this character work as a revenue inspector for FCC?

Well it's certainly a must read book seeing as a lot of people I know are really into it....

I thought it was for old women who don't realise the internet is full of porn ;)

Someone told me about this and I had to look it up. Not exactly my cup of tea, but then that goes for a lot of different books. I tend to read thrillers and spy fiction, quite keen on John le Carre. Still, not everyone can like the same thing and not everything can be universally popular.

I went to Whittards yesterday, they had 50 shades of Earl Grey :?

No pun intended, BTW.

I flicked through a PDF of it earlier (if you can flick through a document on-screen) - both me and my girlfriend thought it was rubbish. It's very badly written for starters, as shown in this blog post and Private Eye a few months ago before copies became visible on every Tube carriage. It's not worth paying for!

Also, it's a sign of the ubiquity of the books that we're even talking about them on here! :o

I've seen better fiction in Parade, Fiesta et al thirty years ago :oops:

Anyone remember "Firkins Funny Page" ?

Seeing as it's become acceptable for women to read this erotic novel in public, does this mean us men may pull out our 'gentlemen' editions and not raise eyebrows???

I vote yes on this one. ;)
