I was infected with this book
I have read more sex phrases in other books.
I didn’t really even read books! But this is the best book I ever read! read all 3 in a week!
These would be the books I’d take if I was gonna be stranded on a island for the rest of my life.
I read all 3 of them within a week and a half. All while working and going to school and having to do bible lessons.
I’m not a person who likes to read but….
Awesome book for men and women!
I am uberly happy with my purchase
Classy read with a great story line.
The language is extraordinary
The almost primitive style writing, like reading ones journal of secrets, evoked the feelings the characters felt, to me the reader.
There is some parts that are kinky but the story behind it is great.
As a budding author, I appreciate the brilliant usage of the first person.
It isn’t extremely well-written
I red it under 2 days
The product seems well written for the purpose and suitable for the intended purpose and my woman loves the attention she gets as she reads her favorite passages.
People are just judging it for the sex scenes and bad grammar
My inner goddess was sooo funny that she kept me laughing.
My husband was even happy to help watch the babies while I was reading these books.
There’s an actual story in there. And it’s not half bad.
The books skips over frivolous details and gives just enough to visualize and get to the plot.
Let’s face it, all men are f***ed up.
Read a few pages and reminds me of when I was a kid reading penthouse forums stories but whatever, it works!
Love it its the best I ever read if people dont like why the fu.k are they they reading in seeing bad reviews if dont like why u waste ur money
As a mental health professional, I found the characters’ development accurate and fascinating.
I’ll indefinitely recommend this novel.
I truly wish my ex-mormon husband would read these.
This book reminds me of “Pretty Woman” where every girl wanted to be a prostitute and be found by Richard Gere.
Charming & indulging, every sentence manifested into a heart reaching symphony of lust then, love.
Some call it a slut book but I have found it enteresting
I don’t understand how anyone could say something like this bad or terrible.
The BDSM is less than 2% of the book.
I heard about the book on Dr. Oz TV show and how it helped women in menopause.
These Children are afraid to love
It’s definitely a Twilight Fan Fiction novel.
…. wow – the power of words !
I’ve never read a complete novel book, but when it came to Fifty Shades of Grey I finished it in 4 days!!
Would it be as great of a love story without the sex parts? I do not think so, because it is the sex parts that are vital for the unraveling of the story.
This trilogy is BY FAR the best books I have EVER read. I’ve read a LOT of books
I have been up two nights in a role reading this book
For those that say the grammer is bad, what book have you read that had perfect grammer? If the grammer is perfect then the book has no story. It is the grammer that makes us feel like we are in the setting in the book.
Not for children though.
