Fifty Seven Shades of Shit - Alex Cook

Fifty Seven Shades of Shit - Alex Cook 

About the book: 
Deep in the heart of urban New York, life keeps rolling with the heavy-weight punches for middle aged father of one, George Bethers. 

Buried beneath the daily crap pile of his prison equipment delivery business, the dreaded reminder of Valentine’s Day rolls around all too soon, surprising him.

Stuck on what to buy his wife, Kate, George enlists the help of his rich and very narcissistic non best friend, John who doesn’t help matters and the advice of a famous talk show host flashing 'the infamous book' that caught the nation, in choosing the perfect gift. 

Deliriously happy with his purchase, Kate catapults their comfortable once-a-month screw along with their marriage into unknown territories.
Armed with spatulas and a book for guidance a series of unfortunate repercussions and painful accidents ensue, when a man is introduced to the Fifty Seven Shades of Shit that BDSM had to offer.


My Review: 
Picking up this short story, i wasn't sure what to expect after loving Mr Grey. But i found once i started reading the pages flowed together seamlessly, the characters were well written and defined with continual growth and development throughout the book. The story-line worked well and as this is a spoof of Fifty Shades it does exactly what it says. It is witty, entertaining and in some places makes you want to bust your sides open. The story-line flows well throughout the book leaving the reader no option but to continue to read until the book is finished. With the engaging and funny characters along with the great story-line this is a book that anyone who loves a good fun short to read should be picking up and i know i want to find out where everything is going to go on their haphazard journey through the series, i feel there will be many more side splitting foolishness. Go and check out this book you won't be disappointed.
