    I thought this book was okay. When I first read some reviews on Goodreads I was worried about the contents of the story and I expected the worst... but really, it wasn't as shocking as I feared. Yes, some concepts are a little far fetched and as with Ms. Douglas "Fall Away"-series I highly recommend to keep in mind that these relationships are FICTION and should not serve as inspiration. But with some media competence you can quickly slip into the story and highly enjoy every page you read. People should stop being so stuck up, it's just a book. It's an enjoyable and addictive read and it is fantasy. Sometimes you just need to trust people to be able to seperate fiction from reality. I can understand that people enjoy the thrill of being overpowered and dealing with a stronger partner but it doesn't mean in real lfe they would draw inspiration and jump into toxic abusive relationships... Have a little faith in human kind, people. Let us have our dirty little fantasies without feeling guilty ;) So, it's 3/5 stars for me. I enjoyed the book for the time being although it's not a literary masterpiece. And it doesn't try to be.
