  • Review: The Mister

    The Mister by E.L. James was awesome. The topic of this author and her books is very controversial. In my opinion, the controversy is ridiculous. If it wasn't for Fifty Shades and the rest I wouldn't be blogging about romance books, reading them anywhere near as much or reading such spicy awesomeness. So I thank you, E.L. James, for writing your fan-fic, for giving us Christian Grey and the red room, for opening the world of steamy romance up to indie authors and romance readers! That being said - this book is not anything like Fifty. Yes Maxim is rich and Alessia is not and he does swoop in but the similarities end there. Maxim is grieving the loss of his brother. But it is more than that. With his brothers passing, he, the "spare", is now the next Earl of Trevethick, a lifestyle and obligation he is NOT prepared for. When his new daily (cleaner) turns up he is entranced with her beauty and unsettled by it. When he overhears ehr playing complex compositions of Bach on his piano, he's beyond intrigued. Alessia escaped an arranged marriage in Albania only to wind up in an even worse situation. After making her way to her mother's best friends home in London she settles into a life of work. The highlight of her work days is at The Misters apartment. He has a piano and is often not home and Alessia treasures the times when she can play. Music lights up her soul. But when trouble finds her and comes knocking on The Misters door, she fears she will lose everything she has managed to carve away for herself. The audio is fabulously done for this book and was how I listened to the majority of it. The first person narrative of Maxim and the third person narrating of Alessia is different but also brings to attention the language barriers between these two characters. It took a little while for me to warm up to the story and get fully settled in but around the halfway mark I was addicted. I HAD to know what was going to happen, I just had to witness their growing relationship and the changes in Maxim. Loved it! Enjoy!

  • The Mister by E L James

    Well not sure what to say about this book. I was a little disappointed this book was not what I expected from E L James. Sort of the same concept very wealthy guy and girl with no money at all. He has just become a Lord after the tragic death of his older brother. She is his daily which means she cleans for him. I have to say there are a lot of emotional issues her that are just touched on and explored like human trafficking , abuse and power struggles between the wealthy and the poor. This book was a big disappointment with over 500 pages and a lot of things repeated throughout.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Mister

    First time reading EL James. Not a fan of her writing style. I found the plot and the dialogue to be lacking in substance. A very early days Harlequin romance with a lot of descriptive sex added in. I am not inclined to read any of her books again.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Disappointing

    I expected more of a page turner but this was a snoozer. Characters have great potential but ultimately fell flat.

  • Waste of money!

    Sorry I spent the $. This book should have been better than it was. Kept reading it in hopes that it would get better, but it never did. Bought this & started reading it four months ago. I was so interested, that from the time I started it to the time I finished, I read 21 other full books. Not worth the money in any sense

    Thanks for your feedback!
