    I don't intend to read that trilogy but from what the whole plotline is how on earth can an S&M novel be inspired by Twilight? Besides Stephenie's was tasteful.

    Stephenie's trilogy was for teenagers. Ms James' is for their mothers! Huge difference! LOL how would you know its 'tasteless' if you haven't read it? I enjoyed both trilogies for different reasons. Its like compairing appled to oranges.

Have a tip?
