This is probably closer to 2.5 stars for me. In some ways the Romantic in me exulted that they gave it another try, even though I didn't personally believe the relationship stood a chance, they were way different and wanted different things.Maybe that's why there relationship in this book never quite seemed believable? They both changed too much in a very short period of time to suddenly find themselves on common ground. I find this a bit more believable in Ana who is a bit naive and a newbie at relationships, both sexually and romantically.But Christian's transformation seemed a lot less authentic. You just can't be that Eff'ed up and change overnight.It makes me feel a bit cynical. It's not that I don't believe that love can conquer all, I just think it takes a lot of hard work, and perhaps years of therapy.
