T blew my mind. This book was raw, beautiful, and a forever recommendation from me. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? I took the word Animal out of their mouths, wore it like a badge of honor then shoved it down their throats. I see you coming, before you even know you want a piece of me.

However, I highly suggest if you have not done so already to grab Mercy and read that before you jump into Havoc. Your reading experience will be so much better if you read Mercy first. I have to say, one of my favorite things about Havoc is the fact that Debra wrote such a strong Heroine in T, with a great deal of depth.
I really enjoyed the dialogue and how the story was written. You can tell Debra took the time to really make this story one that could not be put down. Clear your calendar and grab a drink and a box of kleenex when you one click Havoc because you are in for the long haul! I didn't want to stop reading to eat, drink or pick up my kidlet!
This excellent stand alone from Ms Anastasia takes place in the universe we first visited in Mercy but you do not need to read Mercy to enjoy this book. Animal is an old fashioned tough guy who is brutal to his enemies and fiercely protective of the ones he claims as his own.
This book does a wonderful job of weaving the past and the present so you get to know who the characters are today because of who they used to be and what they went through in their youths. The lives they led to survive daily was so devastating, but it shaped them both to be very capable of being able to protect each other and those that they love. She is so different than any other leading lady. Content to love Animal, but ensuring that he lives is all that drives her. Knowing she could never have him, was a serious slap to my heart.
She only loves once and for her that is very fitting. And reading how they do get on the same wavelength is totally worth the ride. I love how Nix and Becca were just as much a part of this story. And there were times I just couldn't handle what was happening on the story. And I cannot wait for Embers book!
This book is everything. The love that T and Animal have for each is forged in fire. What started out as an innocent love - two friends protecting each other - grew into something unbreakable. She doesn't let many people in but when she does, it's forever. And her love for Animal is absolute. A beautiful all-consuming love. And it's no secret that I love strong female characters, and T is hands down one of the strongest that I've read. Smart, beautiful, but tough as nails. And Animal, I just love him.
Beneath that pretty face and outgoing personality lies the heart of a warrior. He's fiercely loyal and protective of the family that he's created. A story of family, love, loyalty and life. Animal had a crap upbringing. Foster home to foster home. Just trying to get by day to day. She lives on the streets, but still manages to get to school and survive. A man wants to get right to the porno:. Chapter One Bart Pronghammer walked into the hotel room and knitted his brow at the sight of a naked woman with breasts like regulation volleyballs.
Apparently that is not what women want, porno-wise. What women want, to judge from Fifty Shades of Grey , is not just people doing It. Many pages go by in this book without any of It getting done, although there is a great deal of thinking and talking about It.
Her inner goddess, in addition to dancing, cheerleading, pole vaulting, etc. On the other hand, Anastasia is physically very attractive, although she never seems to figure this out despite the fact that all the other characters keep telling her, over and over, how darned attractive she is.
As the book begins, Anastasia has somehow managed to complete four years of college, during which time she has had—despite being so physically attractive—no romantic involvement of any kind with anybody.
Also, she does not own a computer nor does she know how to operate one. She has no e-mail account, and seems to be only dimly aware of how the Internet works. At one point she says, quote: In short, Anastasia is a totally believable and realistic depiction of a normal twenty-one-year-old female American college student as she might be imagined by a middle-aged female British author who has lived her entire life in a cave on another planet.
So anyway, early in the book Anastasia meets the main male character, Christian Grey. I am of course joking. He is the handsomest man in the history of men.
Her inner goddess repeatedly s—s her tiny imaginary leotard over the hotness of this man. To add to the stark realism of his character, Christian is also, at age twenty-seven, a self-made billionaire. He started a company called, realistically, Grey Enterprises Holdings, Inc. Christian also is an expert dancer, piano player and glider pilot. Christian starts stalking her and pressuring her to engage in—and I do not mean this to sound in any way judgmental—sicko pervert sex.
He wants to tie her up with ropes, handcuffs, shackles, tape, etc. He wants to blindfold and gag her. He wants to spank her, whip her, flog her, cane her, paddle her, put nipple and genital clamps on her, bite her and use hot wax on her.
We know this because he asks her to sign a contract agreeing to let him do these things to her. What do you think Anastasia does when she sees this contract? Do you think she gets herself a restraining order and an industrial-sized drum of pepper spray, which would be the response of a normal sane woman or reasonably intelligent cocker spaniel?
She decides to go right ahead and get into a sexual relationship with Christian even though she thinks he is a moody weirdo pervert. What he wants to do, and keeps trying to get Anastasia to let him do, is tie her up and flog her with various implements, as per the contract. So the plot is: Finally, Anastasia decides to let Christian flog her, to see what it would be like.
So he takes a belt and flogs her on the butt. Then, in the dramatic climax to the story, the moment we have been building up to, Anastasia comes to a shocking, life-changing realization, which nobody could have foreseen in a million years: Getting flogged on the butt hurts. Anastasia does not like it! But never mind the other two books.
The first book was the big one, the one tens of millions of women could not put down. So to get back to my original question, from the standpoint of a guy sincerely trying to understand women: Why was this book so incredibly popular? When so many women get so emotionally involved in a badly written, comically unrealistic porno yarn, what does this tell us?
That women are basically insane? Of course it does not tell us that. What it tells us is this: Women are interested in sex. This may be obvious to women, but, trust me, it is not obvious to men. In fact, it is contrary to everything men are led to believe, dating back to puberty.
