I didn't quite understand why this one was so controversial.Leaving aside the ending, I just didn't connect with it. The first sex scene was fine. But the rest of it - and there was a lot - just got really repetitive.I am actually surprised I didn't see the ending coming. It was pretty obvious when you thought about it. I certainly wasn't shocked.I won't recommend this one to anyone and now that I understand that this is the first book in a trilogy I don't ever intend to getting around to finishing it.
