I finally succumbed to the hype and got this from my library's ebook collection.
It wasn't good. It wasn't awful. There were some parts that were interesting but mostly it was like watching a horrific accident. You just couldn't look away.
Not at all a healthy relationship between the two leads. I didn't dislike Christian or Anastasia but I think they could use some counseling. I'm not stating this because of the D/s aspects of the book. It is obvious to me, as the reader, that there are some deep seated issues that both of our characters have.
A flawed character is interesting but I can't bring myself to care about whether either of them resolve their problems.
