I made the mistake of reading the original fanfiction then when I found out about how it was being published under a different name, my reaction was pretty much: "WHO THE WHAT THE WHY THE HOW THE ****!!!!!" I'm not even sure it's legal :/ Someone please tell me it isn't.

It was obvious to me, even before I knew this fact, that it was very heavily Twilight-derived.
I mean, dark-haired, clumsy young girl from the West Coast who doesn't know how attractive she is (despite having a stream of guys after her) meets devastatingly attractive "mysterious" man. Despite being generally smart and independent, he reduces her to a wibbling mess just by being really hot. He keeps warning her off because he is "dangerous" to her. She whines for ages about whether or not they should be together...
The difference is that in Fifty Shades, they actually get to have sex a lot earlier. But even then, those bits are very repetitive after a while.
I'm not sure about a film version of this. They'd have to tone it WAY down to be allowed to be shown in mainstream cinema, which I think would rather lose the point, as without the kinky sex it's just a rather poor love story.
I don't know about anyone else but books like these really get me raging. For me, it reinforces the idea that it's okay for your boyfriend to be abusive and controlling so long as he is hot.

Can someone link me to the original fanfiction? I want to see how cringey it is without paying for it.
