You can tell that this was written over 15 years ago (some word and clothing choices), but it's still one of my favorites! It's always nice having a shy girl gain confidence, and there were parts that I literally laughed out loud. I have read and reread this book several times, and I will continue to do so.
It was incredibly painful listening as Grace, a pathetically spineless wimp, allowed both Noah and his grandmother Agatha to bully her relentlessly.
Sadly, Grace had ZERO self-respect or personal boundaries, believing she was unattractive and unlovable. Since Grace willingly worked for a woman who regularly degraded and humiliated her, it was not surprising that she permitted Noah to abuse her too.
Noah was the typical self-absorbed alpha jerk, who categorized women as either worthless whores or refined ladies. Therefore any woman who enjoyed sex was a slut, making it acceptable for him to punish them with domination and cruelty.
Rather than romantic or erotic, the sex scenes were cold and calculating, with Grace demeaning herself without a thought to her physical safety or emotional health. Noah was incapable of affection or empathy, believing the world revolved around his cock.
It's amazing that a female author would promote such low opinion of her own gender. Although well written, there was nothing romantic, erotic or entertaining in this misogynistic novel.
