I got this book on my kindle free from amazon so i thought i would give it a chance. It was a nice short story so i could read it in one sit. i thought the story line was ok and i enjoyed. I thought they could have been more to the story but for the 55 pages it wasn't bad,i do question why like christian grey he has loads of money its a bit like a teenage girls childish fantasy to have a rich man on the plus i liked this book better than fifty shades Simon was far less irritating than christian. I think it might have been better to put at least the first two books together as not significant happens in the first book and there's no build she up, she loses everything stays in a strangers house then has sex with him the it just ends, the ending is so random i would have preferred it to have some meaning its like the story just ends in the middle of a book there's no cliff hanger or anything her puts her in her room she rolls over sad ans has a dream and it just ends. I just thought there was something missing.
I liked the characters, i found Simon to be over baring and irritating but like all stereotype erotic dominant men he has deep wounds , i would to see a dominant character without underlying heart break. i know it is supposed to create the illusion of being soft underneath and vulnerable but you can do that without him being emotionally scared. I liked Kara he was determined and independent. I really felt for her, you see the vulnerable side in the hopeless situation she is in.
a nice little read
