I’M BACK BABY.
Y’ALL READY FOR THIS.
RECAP: Nothing of interest happened except Ana and Christian figured out who set fire to Christian’s house and it was…
JACK HYDE! Ana’s creepy former boss who tried to force her to have sex with him by blackmailing her!
Nothing exciting happens (I’ve literally gone through like 20 pages looking for something of interest) for awhile. They eat food (SHOCKING) and then they start talking about the house they’re having remodeled.
“I kind of like [the house] the way it is,” I whisper. Is this going to make him mad?
He regards me steadily. “I want this house to be the way you want. Whatever you want. It’s yours.”
“I want you to like it, too. To be happy in it, too.”
“I’ll be happy wherever you are. It’s that simple, Ana.” His gaze holds mine. He is utterly, utterly sincere. I blink at him as my heart expands.Holy cow, he really does love me.
So…basically what you’re telling me here, Ana, is that love means just letting your partner do whatever they want to because it’s what they want and that’s all that matters?
We’ve gone over this HOW MANY TIMES?!
ALSO CAN WE CALL ALL KINDS OF SHENANIGANS ON THE FACT THAT SHE’S AFRAID TO EXPRESS HER OPINION BECAUSE IT MIGHT MAKE HER HUSBAND MAD.
CAN WE JUST HAVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR MY SANITY BECAUSE I AM NO LONGER A RATIONAL HUMAN BEING. THIS BOOK HAS TURNED ME INTO A RAGE-MONSTER. GOOD JOB.
Oh, now Ana decides they’re going to go watch TV. Well, isn’t she a little decision-maker today.
OH OKAY SHE JUST WANTS TO WATCH TV SO THEY CAN MAKE OUT.
“We could go to bed and make out.”
“We do that all the time. When was the last time you made out in front of the TV?” I ask, shy and teasing at the same time.
OH YEAH BECAUSE MAKING OUT IN FRONT OF THE TV IS SO ROMANTIC AND EXOTIC AND DIFFERENT.
OH MY GOODNESS I CANNOT HANDLE HOW KINKY THIS RELATIONSHIP IS.
MAKING OUT IN FRONT OF THE TV? OH MY GOD. THIS BOOK IS JUST DOING SO MUCH FOR MY SEX LIFE. MAYBE LATER TODAY I’LL BE ADVENTEROUS AND MAKE OUT IN FRONT OF THE TV.
Are you fucking kidding me right now.
