Vaughn Asher. I’ve stalked him relentlessly. I shaped and formed my lust into the perfect dirty hashtag…day after day… weekend after weekend. He was my prince. My fairy tale. My fantasy.
I gave him the best years of my online life and what did he do for me?
Ruined my social media experience one tweet at a time. That’s what.

And now #TheDickWhoIsVaughnAsher thinks he can weasel his way back into this filthy blue bird’s Twitter account? He’s wrong.
His public fantasy is about to collide… ah, fuck it. He’s hot as hell, bitches. I need more than a free sample. This time I want it all and I’ll do whatever it takes to get it.
At first the answer is clear.
@FilthyBlueBird has unfollowed you.
If you read my review for Follow, you might remember how I questioned Grace and whether her Twitter personality was her true self. Vaughn begins to challenge her as well, as she tries to escape behind a keyboard.
“Why give me such pushback?”
“Because it makes me feel . . .dirty.”
“Aren’t you? Aren’t you the filthy blue bird? Isn’t that the public persona you’ve been cultivating for the past few years?”
Despite Grace fighting along the way, Vaughn is very persistent. He tries to establish a relationship that will work for her, even creating new Twitter names for privacy – @mrinvsman and @mrsinvsman. While this was a creative idea, I wondered why they didn’t just sext, instead of relying on Twitter. But I think doing so reveals a lot about Grace. She seems to relish the idea of the words being public, even though their accounts are private. She likes the illusion of it all.
Ever the creative man, Vaughn sets a Twitter date with her.
But we learn, while Grace likes hiding behind the keyboard, Vaughn is more of a hands on kind of guy. A man of action.
(HINT: this is the part where you discard your panties)
Vaughn truly tests Grace’s ability to submit in this book.
“None of what I do sexually is about humiliation or control. It’s about excitement. It’s about breathtaking sexual experimentation. It’s about trust.”
Would most woman be willing to give into his aggressive actions? No idea. He makes Christian Grey look like he handled Ana with kid gloves. But Grace is not Ana. Vaughn senses the submissive side within her and therefore is testing her limits to see how far she will go.
Through pleasure and pushing Grace to test limits, she begins to submit and learn the mind-blowing pleasures when doing so. Under a deep sex haze, she finally gives her control to Vaughn. Based on some of his terms, I can see where some problems may come up down the road. With this cliffy and the next book being called BLOCK, I’m sensing that those issues will come up real soon. But we have to wait. . .
