This book is total garbage. People are only reading it because it's sexual content is very explicit. If people are actually impressed by this trash then you have not taste in literature whatsoever, and I suggest you get help. This book should be avoided at all costs. It's a disgrace to literature as a whole. I only read this book because of how over hyped it is, and I wanted to be able to review it, and say what utter trash it truly is. It's certainly not "intense".
If you like Romantic books: fine, but this isn't "Romantic", this is disgusting trash. Unrealistic, boring and just trash. Avoid this disgraceful crap and read something that requires intellect.
