I think Ms. James got her book ideas from the movie The Secretary. Except the movie was very good and her book was badly written. Please don’t link anything about your book with the Twilight saga because Twilight was exceptionally written compared to your book.

You are right alexandria! Since ms. James was inspired by twilight, certainly it includes the character of bella and edward. So, why not make them both cast on your film ms. James. Sure, millions of fans and adults look forward to watch them in different story together.

Hello Mrs. James, I read the first two books of your work and
I’m in love with Christian and Anastasia, are two contrasting characters….
you had made me remember of my youth, they are intense and soft,
When i started to read your books,
I thought Ryan Gosling actor as Christian,
If I read more, I imagine Ryan in the character, anyway, also
I’ve noticed the inspiration of the Twilight characters in your work,
you use words, actions, thinks, expression, etc of Twilight. and
i like it, this make special the story, very hard story but at the same time very romantic, and sweet, with moral values.
I congratulate the agility that is written, i laught much, and I liked.
Thank you, I wish you much success more
Thank your and Greetings from Mexico!!!!!

Really, this site is just now figuring out that the “50 Shades” characters were based off of the Twilight characters? That tidbit has been discussed ad nauseaum in EVERY interview since the book became a success. And millions, (yes I wrote millions), of Twilight fanfiction writers have talked about this for OVER two years. Where have YOU been?
