First of all lets just say I liked these books. I gave them all 4 stars. But I had a lot of problems with them too. I am kinda mixed about it myself. Lets go to a list of things I DID NOT LIKE
* Bath scene with a certain ex-sub
Christians psycho ex-sub comes to Ana's apartment with a gun. He comes in gets all DOM like on the ex-sub and kicks Ana out. Poor Ana watches these two together and is heart broken. Then to find out after she left he bathed the girl and gave her some of Ana's clothes. Then later when he couldn't find Ana he got UPSET!! This was all a big FREAKING HELL NO!! to me. That is just too much and crossed a huge line.
*Ana gives Christian some horrifying news and he goes and sees his ex-dom. The women who started a sexual relationship with Christian when he was just 15 yrs old. The women who told Ana she was not enough for Christian, the women Ana HATES! And while Ana was home crying he went to see this women who he was suppose to not talk to anymore!
I didn't care that Christian had this colorful past with lots of women. I didn't care that he had a play room full of toys. I didn't care that he was a bit of a control freak. But I did not like his past always coming to his door step or watching him care for other women. These are the scenes that stand out to me because I was soo mad!!
But I did like these books. I swear I did. Plus there was lots and lots of HOT SEX! I liked Christian and Ana together. But I find myself having NO IDEA how to review them. I can not think of anything to say really. I liked seeing Christian go from a DOM to a nice loving husband.When we start off Christian is that bad boy and very much in control, then in walks Ana and totally throws his whole world off. He gets into his first un-contracted relationship, and has some "vanilla" sex. The series is really about these two trying to find a middle ground. They love each other and have some HOT sex but its not easy.
Oh and seriously I HATE the freaking term "Butt Plug" Just its so gross sounding. (this word is mentioned a few times.) But I did take note to some of the fun things these two got into (but not the butt plugs.)lol I mean couldn't they name them something else. Who the hell thought up the term butt plug? We all know what a dildo is and we don't call it a vagina stick or something. Okay I am really sorry for anyone that has read all this. Moving on....
I am really glad I read these books. Because I honestly did like them, and I find myself thinking about the books often. I am going to miss them.I have no idea why they are hard for me to review, this happens to me now and then. But they brought out a lot of strong emotions and I really wanted to talk about them.
