First the writing:
The writing is crisp, engaging and solid. I really like this writers style and voice. The synopsis I initially read said if you liked 50 shades you will like this book also. Well, a reader friend coaxed me into reading 50 shades, as we often read the same stories, and this one was no exception. This is where our tastes tend to overlap and separate. However on this one we can agree its a great story.
As far as the story, I think it will have lots of mixed reviews just as 50 shades does. However, for me personally, I enjoyed it far better than fifty shades. The writing was irritating and far less sharp in the other book. The emailing back and forth with every detail down to the seconds drove me nuts. It was frivolous fluff and destracting from the story. This book had none of that.
This genre seems to bring out lots of different reactions. For me, the story was excellently executed. Knowing I could never be in these types of relationships because in my opinion, they are destructive and self destructive. And heck I wouldn't have the patients, desire or inclination. Still, I can find the story intriguing.
Probably because of a psychology degree and background, I've encountered enough varying situations that I know all levels of degrees of it exist. I remember being totally baffled as an early teen when I noticed how a friend I'd known got her first boyfriend and totally changed. He completely dominated her and she was actually afraid of angering him. She did whatever he said, when he said it and they were both very young. It was incomprehensible to me.
That said, I just know that when reading this genre everyone seems to have different ideas. One person said it was very vanilla but since this was supposed to be Brendon's first time as a dominate I assume that is probably normal, which makes the story more believable. He wouldn't necessarily start out as a hard core dominate or maybe he would. It seems to me he's also testing and expanding.
The fact that I'm quite interested in reading the next book means the story was very good for me. This writer has a very strong voice and the story she's writing could be straight out of a case file in many ways. I found it very believable. I, of course have my, "Is she nuts?", "I would have been long gone!", etc moments. But considering I have those on a regular basis anyway with real people, that's definitely not anything to indicate the excellence of the story and the story telling. I engage all of these books that way. These books are not romances to me and I know this going into the genre.
And, just like I'm looking forward to the next book, I am looking forward to the comments on this book. Just reading all of the varying comments on 50 shades shows how all over the place people are on this subject. And I do believe Ms. Loveit will cause a nice stir with this book. Excellent job!
One last note that's unimportant, I just found it nice, this author is obviously not American. And, I love the little colloquialisms and things she says that are true to her dialect. I can almost hear the Australian lilt. I thought that was way cool. And, the characters life outside of this relationship is very interesting. Makes me wonder why she doesn't just find one if the nice guys that likes her exactly the way she is. But, then it wouldn't be this genre. And, as already stated, I know people in real life who I wonder the same thing about.
