Not for me.
on June 5, 2015
I don't like criticizing people's hard work, but this was like the author took everything from 50 Shades and tried to one-up it; it was disrespectful to E.L. James, who admittedly may not be as good of a writer, but somehow managed to make me feel more connected to and invested in the (50 Shades) characters. I never felt invested in these characters and felt that it was gratuitously vulgar and completely unrealistic. I almost stopped reading, but I made it through the first three books just to give it a chance, but I have no desire to continue the series. I haven't disliked a story this much since Wuthering Heights (which was still an entertaining read).
Sorry, Ms. Day; I'm sure you put a lot of effort into it, but it was just not for me, and I feel completely let down that THIS is recommended as similar to 50 Shades.
