That made me sad.
Having said all the, it is readable, very 'steamy' and the main female character is pretty feisty.
I didn't hate it. I won't be reading the rest of the series though.
The divide between rich and poor is starkly portrayed alongside the attitudes/expectations others assign to people who struggle to survive. While some people do become the quintessential self-fulfilling prophecy, others like Leah have the grit and determination to overcome the life they have been given. They are stronger than the ties that bind them. For Leah this escape comes with flying and the dream of becoming a pilot. While she is unable to avoid certain stereotyping due to second-hand and often too small-clothes (you can imagine the stereotyping from that). Leah doesn’t dispel the insinuations rather she avoids forming any relationships, afraid of the consequences to her fragile self-esteem. Leah is a complex character struggling against the life she has been born into; she is desperately lonely and insecure behind the barriers she has established.
In contrast, Grayson has grown-up in a privileged home although not necessarily a happy one. While he can act like a complete douche you can sense his vulnerability behind his defence mechanisms. Making him a lot like Leah. As the emotional barriers as well as preconceived notions are dismissed it is easy to see how perfect Grayson and Leah are together.
Jennifer Echols never fails to make me run the gauntlet of emotion. Such a Rush made me laugh, cry and shout in outrage. Every time I read one of her books I feel as if I’ve left a piece of my heart with the characters. My only wish is either for sequels or epilogues set in the distant future just so I know how the characters have got on. I literally begged Jennifer for this via twitter :)
Jennifer Echols is a must-read author; it’s an addiction you won’t regret :)
her erotic fiction normally consists of creative love scenes and great stories, which this book really lacked. A major problem for me was the lack of story, and what was there was has all been done before. I love erotic fiction but for me there still needs to be a story!
I could not identify with the main characters and the sex scenes really were not up to standard for a BDSM type book. further, the eroticism in this book never felt at all believable. Gabe's character never came across as a true dom.in addition to this there was no true romance to be seen between the couple. in fact a time or two Gabe showed some stalker-ish tendencies and behaviour.
this is not the worst erotic book I have read, but it is truly not this best either. I think it will be quite a let down for what maya banks fans will be expecting. I would advise that new readers look at her other books first, as normally they are good. however, after reading the a excerpt for the next book at the end, I will persist with this trilogy. it seemed really good, and appeared to have a far better story! I just hope its not another let down, as these book are expensive and this one was not worth the price!
