Publication Date: April 3, 2012 | Series: Fifty Shades Trilogy (Book 1)
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 had not planned to read this series because of all the hype but my sister-in-law in Alabama persuaded me to give in and try them. So, okay, I decided I would BUT I would not BUY them. I put the first one on hold at our local library and was called a couple of days later that they had it ready for me.
I really don’t know what I expected but it certainly wasn’t what I found. It was much more descriptively ( I don’t think that’s a word but oh well.) sexual than I thought it would be and it actually had a plot which I also had not expected. It was a very fast read and I took it back to the library in a day and a half and put the second one on hold…….more on that one later. My favorite parts are the emails between Christian and Ana, I thought the author did a good job with those. As a hold I learned more about some things that I’ll ever need to know. Enough said.
After reading this one I HAD to go on to the next one, didn’t I?
If things sexual in a book bother you this is not the series for you, stay clear.
