I read the first one, and hated it. ("oh my!") lol

I don't think there will be a consensus on female perspectives...

OP-

Just began reading the first book....it's okay, but nothing it was hyped to be.

Some men and women are driven by lust.....and where it takes them is anyone's guess. Sex is sex...love is love...and women and men view these things as differently as each person is unique.

Men and women are as much alike & different than men are to other men and women are to other women. We can find similarities and difference between any two things if we try hard enough, but that doesn't make something a fact. Look how many people look totally different from each other and yet, if you start picking them apart, you can find things that are alike.

I don't know about the book, it's not something I would read.

fkn_edgy: good stuff man. you definitely didnt pull any punches on that post, but i agree with you, 100%. the romance novels that women read these days are more fantasy than star wars. problem is, theyre starting to expect that garbage in real life. at least i dont try to use jedi mind tricks on people.

i'd be embarrassed to admit i had read that crap; anyone else who has should be too.


I am. :-(

But to make myself feel less pathetic, I have to point out that at least I didn't buy it; it was given to me. After all the hype, I kept reading, waiting to be shocked, impressed, or even aroused. Instead, I was bored. :-/

It a glorified Harlequen romance novel from what I've heard, got the details from some friends about the books, most thought it was ok but overhyped, not something I'd going to bother to read. There is nothing wrong with a romance novel, it's fiction, but then I've found the men I know who know how to romance their ladies seem to have better success with women.

I haven't read any and don't plan to. From what I understand from the interviews I've seen it's about fantasy. I believe that fantasy plays a part in the human experience, whether it's an erotic or any type of fantasy. I also think that most fantasties should stay just that, acting out on them tends to be disappointing as the fantasy rarely ever lives up to the reality. I think they should be separate, but people should have both and keep them separate. I also think fantasties should be kept totally private, male or female.

The books were a troll off of Twilight crap, I believe. Don't base real human relationships on her offensive fiction.
