Do to the hype I purchased all three. I just started the third and have no problem leaving it for days at a time (typically I have trouble putting a good book down). There is very little romance or suspense - mostly way too much over described rough sex. I would not recommend this trilogy - it is disturbing. The only amazing thing about these books is the authors ability to come out of no where and get the positive hype that she has. There are way better authors to put spend your money on.
