When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—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 family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.
Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
This book is intended for mature audiences.
I finally gave in to peer pressure. I’m reading this because my girl friend, Dan wanted me to. Even my cousin said that I should read it… What can I say? I can’t say NO to them. :/ As far as I’m in which is not so much, it’s pretty okay. It’s making me grin… I’m a bit worried about it actually. I’m NOT into BDSM. The first BDSM book I’ve read was Slave by Sherri Hayes. And it’s not really that er, BDSM-ish? It’s mild. So I don’t really consider it as my first BDSM book. I believe this Fifty Shades is hard core BDSM.
I’ve actually tried the audio book… I fast forward it to the first sex scene between Ana and Christian. I’m not turned on. BECAUSE I KEEP ON LAUGHING. I was laughing my ass off cause the girl who’s talking in the audio book is trying so hard to sound like a man, hence, me laughing like crazy. You guys should try listening to it and you’ll see what I’m talking about. I deleted the files cause I can’t stop giggling and just decided to read the book. :p
I don’t know what to hope for this one. >_< My friends over at GR keep saying “Good luck, you need it.” to me and “Why did you give in?” comments. :p Well, good luck to me.
