Jolly Hockeysticks and all that!
on 11 September 2012
This book was first released in 2000 and has been re-printed 10 times. There are so many books now jumping on the 50 shades bandwagon and this is clearly one of them.
I do not like being negative about a book and the writer but honestly this (for me) was pure drivel!
No story, no warmth,old fashioned prose, boring!
This was supposed to be a story of sexual submission and obedience. The Haven, a weekend retreat that specializes in this lifestyle and provides training in obedience (for men and women)
Natalie Bowen turns to the Haven because men are unable to deal with her dominating attitude - so she attends the Haven hoping to change this but does she learn anything from her experience at the Haven? Does it alter her attitude towards men?
If you want to read about Natalies time at the Haven, her training and whether her attitude towards men changed then by all means read this book.
For me there was no spark between the characters or in the story - I really would have liked to say something positive about this book but I can't.
