Fifty Shades Of Grey - E L James

Fifty Shades of Grey - E L James

About the book:
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.


Me Review:
Ok so first of all, this book has received a lot of press over it's content so as such i was a little wary to add to all the hype, but i decided to review it anyway. 
What can i say about the book other than i loved it, i got lost in the story-line, the characters and the emotions of the book. The characters are well written Christian is enigmatic, charismatic, intimidating but most of all it is his dark side that you have to worry about. I found myself falling in love with him even though throughout the whole book there were many, many times that i just wanted to smack him and ask him what on earth was he thinking. This said it makes for a more in depth and heartfelt character that really draws you in and grabs hold of you not wanting to let you go until you have finished the book. Ana well what can i say about her the sweet naive women that she is when she meets Grey, yet she shows courage, love, forgiveness and most of all she shows that she is an independent women, all be it one that has fallen lock stock in love with the wrong man (Grey). She will have you laughing, crying and feeling every emotion she goes through, driving you through the book always wanting more. 
I also believe that throughout the book eye rolling and lip biting bring on a whole new meaning than they ever did before, i know i would be in trouble.
The story-line well the author has gone all out to write an amazing story, that is well written, captivating, enticing and exciting. Yes there is a lot of sex in this book and it will not be to some peoples tastes, but with it being so well written and fitting into the story-line so well this also makes the book what it is. Really i can not shout enough about how much i loved this book and will continue with the series. For people who read and love erotica check out the description it is exactly what it says. For anyone else if you think you can read it please do this is an amazing story that i know i will want to read again. I am obsessed, captivated, charged, moved and possessed by this book, it has a way of doing that to you. I know i am going to lose a few days to the rest of the series, and right now i can't think of a better way to spend my time.
