FIFTY SHADES OF GREY IS NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE


Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. 
 
But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades.
 
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.

This book is intended for mature audiences. 




From the Trade Paperback edition.

Fifty Shades Darker
August 13th, 2015
As the second book in the trilogy it has the perfect combination adventure, romance, intimacy and character development in the way the story unfolds. Nevertheless, grammatically speaking and in terms of phrasing the entire trilogy could use a good editor. If it had a fesh editor it would probably take less pages and would be more gratifying.

And my title does not only refer to the S&M content...it will give you another side of Christian's world. It's the fastest read out of all the books. I loved it because it not only focused on them getting to know each other, they're way past that, and we get to learn more about Christian's dark past and see how their relationship evolves...I love Anastasia's ringtone for Christian...it's hilarious and I could imagine him pissed every time he called!

This book is one of the best books I have ever read, as was Fifty Shades of Grey. This series as became my favorite of all time. It is provocative, thrilling, dramatic, romantic, funny, and keeps you guessing. The relationship between Anatasia and Christian is one of excitement and a constant guessing game something to admire and something that you will fall in love with. You won't want to put this book down once you have started it's very addicting and something that you will become obsessed with!

I really wish I could add a 6th star to all reviews on these books. What I love the most about this book is the way the events and characters change and grow. I love that Christian transforms from utterly immovable to flexible. Every negative emotion he feels eventually becomes something positive, or at least something he can learn and grow from. He learns the delicate balance between give and take. He learns to open his heart and to accept love and, he learns to give it as well. Everything cold becomes warm, and everything hot—well that’s about the only thing that stays the same, still hot. VERY VERY HOT !!! Ana and Christian are so contradictory and conflicting, and yet complement each other so well. Each trial, every obstacle, every hardship the two experiences are overcome and ultimately strengthen the relationship. This is truly one of the most amazing love stories I have EVER read. DO I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them? O HELL YA!! MUST READ BOOK for SURE !!!!
