Where to even begin? Fifty Shades of Grey is one heck of a book. It has about everything you'd ever want in a book. Love, suspense, mystery, action. Wow! You can't help but fall in love with sweet Anastasia from the beginning. She is a little naive and a lot clumsy. She says what's on her mind and doesn't think of the consequences. She has no idea what she's getting into when she meets Mr. Christian Grey. Gorgeous, uber-rich Christian Grey. You fall for him right away, that's how charming he is. You wish he were real or you were in the book to be able to just be with him. You want to take care of him, date him, smack him, be with him, admire him, all the above. He's just that amazing.

I am not into BDSM stories, but I have to say that I really loved this one. This was one of those books that keeps you glued to the pages; staying up reading into the early morning. I found it to be very addicting which is really disturbing for me. This is the love story of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Christian is such a complex character. Read More

Author Info
E. L. James
E.L. James is the pen name of Erika Leonard, a writer who burst onto the scene in 2012 with an erotic trilogy about a sexually dominant businessman and a virginal college student. James was a University of Kent-educated television producer and mother of two when she logged onto a Web site devoted to the massively popular Twilight books. She began penning stories based on those characters and posting them on the site under the name "Snowqueens Icedragon." The steamy tales caught the eye of a small Australian publisher called the Writer's Coffee Shop, which released FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, FIFTY SHADES DARKER, and FIFTY SHADES FREED as e-books. In April 2012 they were published in paperback by a division of Random House, and thanks in some part to their tastefully muted covers, which allowed women to purchase them without embarrassment, they shot to the top of the bestseller lists. James is unbothered by those who disparage her writing skills or dub her work "Mommy Porn." "This is my midlife crisis, writ large," she has said. "All my fantasies [are] in there." The trilogy has been optioned for the big screen, earning her a reported $5 million. James, who is married to the screenwriter Niall Leonard and lives in West London, was included on Time magazine's 2012 list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Explaining her inclusion, the magazine stated. "[The] trilogy has deeply stirred booksellers, Hollywood and, apparently, many, many mothers. Reading may never be the same."
Praise
"[I]t was more entertaining and compelling than expected....[J]ames has tapped into a female sexual and psychological curiosity that can be disturbing if taken too seriously, but is somewhat fun and entertaining in the imagination stage."
From the Publisher
Editors Note 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.
Annotation Released in 2011, British author E.L. James's erotic novel FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, the first in a trilogy, found a mainstream audience hungry for an edgy romance. Set in Seattle, a city whose weather is reflective of the book's title, this is the story of the evolving relationship Anastasia Steele, who is studying literature, and Christian Grey, a successful young businessman. A troubled childhood has left Christian with a tormented psyche, one expression of which are kinky and controlling sexual interests that excite and confound the inexperienced Anastasia.
