Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind - until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time.
The unworldly, innocent Ana is shocked to realize she wants this man, and when he warns her to keep her distance it only makes her more desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her - but on his own terms.
Shocked yet thrilled by Grey's singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success – his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving adoptive family – Grey is man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a passionate, physical and daring affair, Ana learns more about her own dark desires, as well as the Christian Grey hidden away from public scrutiny.
Can their relationship transcend physical passion? Will Ana find it in herself to submit to the self-indulgent Master? And if she does, will she still love what she finds?
Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
How do you write a review on the most intriguing, erotic, emotional, infuriating, riveting book of 2011?? A lot has already been said....So I'll make this breif.
I was captivated from the first few pages. Christian Grey has that kind of affect. He's Fifty Shades of fucked up and loveable in his own way. I suggest you get out there and read this book.. if you already haven't. Its definitely not for the faint of heart but its about more than the sex between these two characters. Im glad that I had the oportunity to read this gem. Can't wait to read the next one! Thanks Ollie for suggesting this one..you're always right!!!
