Despite all the hype, I just couldn’t get into this book. The dialogue was SO cheesy, the characters were shallow. The erotic scenes seemed repetitive – at least the author used a lot of the same (or very similar) words to describe the recurrent sex scenes. The plot was flat. This book just didn’t do it for me. I honestly do not know why a movie is being made. Maybe the producer will add some depth and passion to this tale
If you’re looking for a really good S&M type book that has a better plot and an experienced, well-read author, check out A.N. Roquelaure’s (a.k.a. Anne Rice) Sleeping Beauty series (The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, Beauty’s Punishment, and Beauty’s Release). Now there’s a series that will get your body pumping!
