Default Fifty Shades of Grey?

Anyone read this? It's all over my Facebook as the next best thing since sliced bread....

Downloaded the preview and it so far seems kind of Harlequin Romance..

The ability to load a few chapters long preview before buying is one thing I LOVE about my ereader!! Usually a book has me or not by the third chapter...

Oh, I read it. You obviously missed my post in the "What are you reading?" thread. LOL!

This book may be a romance, but it makes the Harlequin romance novels seem like books for kindergarten circle time.

I actually got embarrassed reading them. They are....something.

I will say that I enjoyed them as easy reading. Just don't read them if you're easily offended (or in a "dry spell").




ETA: I actually said it seemed like a grown-ups "Twilight" without vampires, a constipated Bella, and with looooots of hanky-panky. Then I read that it was indeed Twilight fanfiction. (Then I learned what fanfiction was. In fact, I learned an awful lot after buying the first book just based off the Bestseller's ranking. Hahahahahahahaha)

We've had tons of people requesting them, so we ordered them. The waiting list is quite long already. When they came in my boss opened up to the middle, read a little, then started giggling and held out the book to me. The two words that stood out were "butt" and "plug." Together.

It's just efficiency. Why take 10 pages to describe what a few seconds of footage can show

again it's about effeciency, plot? why take two chapters to build up to what we know is going to happen anyway. Pizza guy shows up, they do it. Pipes need fixing, do it with the plumber. Look at each other? do it.
