    "Any book with this kind of summary should just not ever be a romance book because it's just creepy and open for abuse. I would not recommend this under any circumstance."

    "This fits perfectly in this category, overrated. I am not sure what all of the hype is over this series anyway, maybe women lack passion in their relationship I dont know but these books would be better off left unsaid."

    "If you are looking for a YA fantasy novel to read, I highly recommend Halo. Alexandra's quest through the Halo Trilogy begins here, and I think most people will become hooked and keep reading. There are supernatural and magical components that will pique the interest of most readers within the genre. That said, this book may be considered overrated by some due to parts feeling a little flat. Overall, not a bad book."

And in the end I'm so glad i decided to stick it through even though the subject matter really hit close to home and at times was hard to cope with the pain of seeing myself as the main character."

    "The only thing that surpasses the wooden acting and terrible pacing of the movies based on the Twilight books, are the Twilight books themselves. One of my daughters was reading this on a car trip to Denver recently, trying to convince me it wasn't terrible. I threw it out the window just shy of Castle Rock. "

    "Proof positive that good writing and a great story is completely unnecessary to sell literally tons of books. Worse, this "book" casts the actual BDSM community into a very poor light. This book depicts actual abuse, even rape, and attempts poorly to dress it up as BDSM. There really are a whole bunch of bored housewives who like the vague idea of what they think kinky sex would be, but don't want an actual tale of something realistic. I couldn't make it through this book, but I keep it around as sort of a warning sign for any women I date. If they spot it on my shelf and start gushing, I know to move on immediately."

    "While I am not one who would turn down a good romance novel I don't think this one is a good idea. You should not want to turn outside your own marriage or leave your family behind to find a better life. I felt angry at the main character throughout the entire book. I don't think this is one I'll be recommending to my friends any time soon."
