    I may read it out of curiousity. Ive not heard anything good about it yet.

  2. Gina Says:

    I haven’t read it, and now I definately not read it. Sounds like a poorly written “adult book” that never ends- in a bad way. Thanks for the heads up ( hahah no pun intended, well maybe one now since that was pretty whitty). I love to read and enjoy a wide variety of generes, so If you need a great recomendation, let me know.

    @Chasing Joy, that’s why I read it, because I was so curious about what others were talking about. Now? Not so much. If someone gives it to you for free and you have nothing else to read, then maybe…

    @Gina, it was awful. Really I want the hours spent reading it back :) I’m going to download Mary Kay Andrews’ latest today. Love her. And as a bonus? No nipple clamps in her books.

    We briefly discussed reading it for my book club. Bit we decided it would not provoke enough conversation. But if somone gives it to me for free…

  5. Laurie Says:

    @Chasing Joy, LOL, I’d give you my copy, but I already deleted it off my iPad :)

  6. Kourtney Says:

    Uh ya… Nope, not gonna read it. Up until this point I thought that maybe, at some point, in the distant future, I might… maybe. Not any more. Thanks for solidifying my decision to leave this trend with the trendy…

    I just read this review and I could not agree with you more! You nailed every single criticism I also had of the book, right down to the leather sheets and pedophile-cougar-woman!! And – AND – don’t you find it more than a little gross when like every woman on the radio/t.v./facebook is talking about how much they LOOOVE it?? Ew. Waay too much information that I now wish I didn’t know about you. Love your blog! New follower!! :D

    Hi Michelle,
    IKR? It’s sooooooooooo gross and frankly, I could do without knowing what other women really want :) Thanks for reading – I’m heading over to check out your blog now :)

    am almost through reading the book and my god it is a harrowing experience. i cant believe my best girlfriend is raving about it. writing sucks, very thin plot. unrealistic inane characterization. triple x porno sex scenes on loop for 26 chapters. this is porn plain and simple. i never realized many women are just like men who love to have their penthouse fix. literature is going down the drain. Help!

    Charlie Tangos full name is Charlie tango golf-golf echo hotel. Christian Trevelyan-Grey, Grey Enterprises Holding.

  11. Billy Kropotkin Says:

    The reason Grey calls his helicopter “Charlie Tango” would almost certainly be that its registration number (assigned by the Federal Aviation Administration) ends with the letters “CT”. The (abbreviated) callsign used in radio communication with air traffic control would then be “Charlie Tango”.

    (Yes, it is commonly called a “registration number” even though it can include letters.)
