what i liked: “spend the night with me.”
“and not touch you? no” (p. 227).
“is that all you want me for–my body?” i whisper.
“that and your smart mouth,” he breathes (p. 316).
the tension between anastasia and christian. they’ve got good chemistry. i like anastasia. and i like christian, too, i suppose. to an extent.
what sucked: the length. no way in hell did this book EVER need to be anywhere near five hundred pages long. i was ready for it to be over a quarter past three hundred. way too many sex scenes. i’m an aries. and like most aries, i’m a pretty passionate chick. and those sex scenes, they do what the author intended for them to do (and that’s all i’ll say about that). but i don’t need to read about every single instance the lovers choose to get it on. what moves me in this story is the conflict, not the friction.
having said all that: i liked it well enough.
