Remember, this started out as Twilight FanFic. The author didn't waste time fleshing out characters because they - Bella and Edward - were already established for the audience.

WOW! Thank you for this review. I was tempted to buy the trilogy or at least Book 1 to read while on vacation (& go from there with Books 2 & 3). Now, I'll just save my $$ and e-check it out from my library; may be. With your description of the so called plot or activities, I might just be better off just renting some porn. lol

I couldn't have said it better! This book is extremely poorly written and doesn't seem to go anywhere. Complete waste of time I think.

I'm with you on this. Quite frankly, I can't believe that anyone would find the storyline interesting. Repetitive and boring. You are right on!

I was going to order the books, just out of curiosity. Is it going to be a waste of my time reading it?

I bought the trilogy for my Kindle. I am now just over half way through the second book and getting restless with the story dragging...besides the repetative sex scenes and couple's disagreement over who loves and needs who more, the authors choice of words and expressions of communication between them is also repetative...his gazing impassively, their murmuring are like nails on a chalkboard to me.
I try not to be too critical, as a novice novelist myself, but I hope I give my readers something better than this... :)
Bottom-line, this was written for the now-maturing "Twilighters," which I am definitely not one!

I agree! I can't believe I was caught up in the HYPE again. But, this book actually got a lot of good reviews on amazon. Some people are loving this series! There are just so many things WRONG with this book! It makes women look so stupid. It appears that you can overcome any psychological problem with enough really good sex. I really, really hated the way the main character was all "Gee Whiz, gosh golly darnit" but was ok with S&M. SO UNBELIEVABLE! The wording of everything made me LOL...it was not a funny book, but seriously caught myself laughing to myself while reading it...."he cupped her sex"...hahahha hard to take without laughing.
I feel bad for other people who will read this based on the hype like I did. One of the all-time worst!
