Things seem to be looking up until an ex subdominant starts stalking Ana and tries to hurt her. In the beginning of this book Ana really struggles with herself and ex "subs". She is not a sub but is jealous of the ex subs. In the end she realizes that these subs have mental illnesses and then she pities them.

Christian a starting to learn to love Ana and not treat her like a sub and Ana explores her sexuality with Christian in his red room of pain. The readers find out that it is Jack Hyde, Ana's boss who is out to get Christian.
Best part of story, including ending: I liked it because it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time while reading.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene is when Leila and Ana have thier confrontation inside Ana's apartment. It shows the dynamic of how messed up Christian and his ex subs are.

Opinion about the main character: I liked that Christian falls in love with Ana and is trying not to treat her like a sub. I like that Ana is still learning to become her own person as well as put Christian in his place.
