erm, have you seen
the last two Transformers movies?
I got the book cheap just to see what all the fuss was about. I haven't read the second or third books, so I can't comment on them, but as for the first, unless you find a blowjob to be particularly shocking I don't really get what the big deal is.
The most "dirty" part was when at one point after said blowjob he came in her mouth. The rest of the "scenes" are all fairly vanilla in what they get up to. In fact after about the first two the sex scenes become pretty boring really.
As for why it's done well, its just down the to advent of Trending on the likes of Twitter and Facebook that simply wasn't there say 5 years ago. People hearing about it from others and wondering, like me I guess, what the big deal is. And again the price doesn't hurt, its not like its a big hardback on sale for £15, I got mine on Amazon for under £4, and I've seen it in various supermarket for the same price.
