The Good: Great writing! I was really impressed with the writing style, prose and extensive vocabulary. Coincidentally this book is about a writer who has just been given a chance in a lifetime to work with a prestigious and talented editor. I absolutely loved that this story had a lot of twists that were hardly predictable. Just when I thought I knew where the main plot was going, the story would switch gears and I can say confidently that until I read the last page of this book, I didn’t know how this novel was going to end. Character development was also terrific. There is one characters that I hated for the first third of the book, then loved at the half-mark and completely despised by the end.
The Bad: This is not a romance, not erotica either. If I had to describe the style I would say that this book is what Fifty shades of gray would have been if it had been written by Dan Brown. Anyway, don’t be too harsh on the category. I don’t think the author is responsible for the way the publishers marketed this book.
The Ugly: This book is dark, even for the mature reader. The subject of S&M along with D/s is the soul of this book. I’m not one that likes to read about people receiving or inflicting pain, so at times it was hard to read.
