Review ~ Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James 18+

**********18+ Mature readers ONLY!!***********

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.

My Review
This is one of those books, that I just had to read after all the negative publicity. I had to see what all the hype was about. I loved it! It's not all about the sex like everyone made it out to be, there is also a story there in the background. Don't get me wrong, there is LOTS of sex, but also a story about Ana finding herself. There are some great snarky lines, and I loved the way she incorporates the emails into the book. I am completely captivated by Christian! I laughed and experienced heart ache right along with them. I had to start the second book immediately. Can't wait to see what happens in the next one!
