Fifty Shades of Grey- E.L.James
Published: May 26, 2011
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 a 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.
I was actually so impressed with this book, I had heard all the hype and that it was pretty much a porno in book form but when you actually read it the explicit stuff in this book is written in a kind of classy way that doesn't gross you out or make you want to put the book down. Its detailed but not to the point where its too much.
The characters are so well written, i feel like i could actually be Anastasia (the main character). Christen, who is the love interest in this book is hot, steamy, rich, complicated and just so delicious. The love that you can see blossoming between them is sweet but complicated and very addictive. You find out there's more to Christian than just what he appears and he's actually very deep.
It is not at all what i expected for erotica and i loved every minute of it. Don't be put off by the fact that its erotica because there really is so much more to it and i am so excited to get into the next one.
