Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

Many parallels to 50 Shades, but good in it's own right. Eva does seem to be stronger than Ana (from 50 Shades.) She has more control, and is aware of her limitations.

I loved her roommate, Cary... at least until the end. Heard many disgruntled mumblings about the end not being what they expected, and I have to say it wasn't quite what I expected, either.

BDSM is almost non-existent in this still, but still hot hot hot!

The underlying reason for the main characters (this affects both of them, although we are still left wondering about the extent of one of the character's 'demons') is touching and humanizing. It makes you feel empathy for the characters without detracting from the story- it's build in as a part of it.

Frustrated with how their past keeps rearing its ugly head and messing up the present.

I'll 'flesh this out' more soon, with quotes. I will most definitely be picking up the next book later this year when it comes out.
