One of my all time personal favorite authors is Judith McNaught, her books do not have the BDSM aspect. Rarely have I been so compelled to go back and re-read a book, but I was for Fifty Shades and just about all of Judith McNaught's books.
I am with P & P, loved the first book so much I bought the other two while I was reading the first, and then started all over again. The character development was excellent, the plot intricate but compelling, and well, as Ana would say-"hot". Does anyone know if the author is/has written similar books?
Ladies, I'm in absolute agreement. I'm a fan of the genre, but can honestly state that I have yet to read a book/series that is this compelling. I too read all three all over again after finishing the first time. Looks like we're all on the same page in looking for another author that writes like this. I'm afraid I don't have anyone to recommend, but will be on the look out for suggestions.
Thanks everyone for your response. I, too, am on the lookout, but as was mentioned these stories were really compelling, honestly did not seem trashy to me, the context made sense with the narrative, as I might have also mentioned "hot"-but certainly not sleazy. If the women who read these have been called "porn moms", then I guess I'm a "porn grandma"!
If you told me I would love this triology so much I would re-read it. I would have told you ..No way. Was I so wrong! Obsessed with this series and cant wait till she writes a new one. She is an extremely talented writer to make me fall in love with a man like Fifty!
I just finished all 3 and I really enjoyed how in the last she even wrote a bit more about Christian as a boy at Christmas etc...very good 3 books...I see she is working on another new book of something differnt cant wait!
