    The author I've downloaded most of is Abbie Cole. They are nice stories to read because they are like a mills and boon story on crack LOL because there is actual substance to them and not just all about the sex. They were only 99cent titles too!

    There was one bad BDSM book that I downloaded that was way OTT and it made me cringe in parts because it was very male-dominated and a lot of rape overtones

    I have had the PDF files of these books sent to but I'm yet to start them - maybe if I get 5 mins tonight I'll pop them on my tablet and start reading!

    Oh yes!

    I came across this blog in my travels yesterday Bad Books, Good Times | Two english majors, too many terrible books and OMG it totally sums up this book I don't even have to read it now.

    Dunno but it could explain the bad writing.

    I don't know Peanutter? It could have been. Everything that blog says about it indicates that it was fanfiction.

    Yes it was started as fanfiction and was very popular when it was a free download, which is why it was picked up. But yeaah, the writing is cringworthy. If it has been editted, I would hate to see what it was like before.

    Pretty sure most of the readers aren't too concerned with the poor sentence structure and grammar though.

    Yes. But the writing is far worse than Twilight. I can't believe I actually live in a world where that sentence is possible

    I admit I have read all three books, and by the third book was skim reading, if not actually skipping, the steamy scenes as they were all the same by the end.

    I saw one of the other books in Myer today and it was called 'Fifty Shades of Freed' Seriously? WTF kind of book title is that? Even if I didn't already know that the writing was terrible, I'd immediately know it by reading that title
