Ecstasy Paperback – October 14, 2010
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Ecstasy (A Contemporary Romance) was my first Bella Andre read; there will be many more until I've read them all. The price of "free" lead me to this author, I would have gladly paid the going rate for this type of book. I'm so glad it was an offering by Bella or Amazon at that price. I'll be purchasing every one of her other books to enjoy.
I thought this book had it's funny and insightful moments. I just couldn't get past the unreality of a woman who is supposedly a little skittish about a first encounter allowing a virtual stranger to tie her up and blindfold her. I would think a little more trust would need to develop between two people before progressing to that level.
I did finish this book but am still up in the air as to whether I will pick up another by this author.
I really liked Candy and Charlie. I thought it was very cute in the beginning how they both had experiences with peoples misguided notions about their profession.. You could tell he was more the physical type in his writing and she was more emotional (hello- shes a woman) From the very beginning I thought that after the HEA they could write as a team and have it all.. But Im getting ahead of myself.. I liked how they met- that was cute. I liked how much thought he put into the lessons.. I thought he was the more emotional person and there was a couple times I wanted to scream at Candy.. I like how Candy had some experience but wasnt wrote to be promiscuous and as for the other reviewers who object to tmi about Charlies past, all I can say is they must have been reading too much into or something because it was literally one sentence and it didnt come right out and say he had a lot of threesomes(although the part about when he lost his virginity was a head-scratcher) but I wasnt offended or anything about his past.. But what I didnt like was the fact that I was more interested in the story Candy was writing to enter the contest than their actual story.. I had to catch myself numerous times from skimming through until the next entry of her story.. Also I didnt like how their conflict was building up for half of the story and then when it came out it was a dud.. I was expecting more.. More emotion, more anger, more fireworks, just more.. It ended up fizzling.. I was very disappointed in that..
All in all this was a pretty good book.
