Favourite Quote: I don’t subscribe to luck or chance, Miss Steele. The harder I work the more luck I seem to have.
Review: A hard to imagine novel reminiscent of Twilight style where the main character – infinitely more “grey” in personality than the titular character – falls in love with someone possessed of the highest abilities across all fields – sporting, aesthetics, career. Despite a history of never falling for those he dates and choosing instead to indulge in domination and submission we can all see the direction this novel is heading for from the beginning. Disappointing for all the notoriety this novel has achieved I did however enjoy the ending . . . nevertheless given there are two sequels I expect the true ending for these characters may fail to achieve such impact.
