Book Review-Fifty Shades Trilogy

Fifty Shades Trilogy
E.L. James
E Book
Published April 2012
 Knopf Doubleday Publishing
Erotic Romance


FIFTY SHADES OF GREY: When college student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating.  The unworldly Ana realizes she wants this man, and Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian’s secrets and explores her own desires.

FIFTY SHADES DARKER: Daunted by Christian’s dark secrets and singular tastes, Ana has broken off their relationship to start a new career. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and while Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Ana is forced to make the most important decision of her life.

FIFTY SHADES FREED: Now, Ana and Christian have it all—love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to turn Ana’s deepest fears into reality


My Review
So I am not one to usually pick up an Erotic Romance unless its a author request, however since this has reached the top of bestseller lists, I thought I would try them out....and after starting the first one yesterday and I just finished the third, I found myself totally addicted to the story, plot, characters and everything between. At first I had heard both good and bad and it took me a while to get the courage to read them....and now I think I understand why its so popular....its definitely different from other erotica that I have read. As you read more into the series it starts to seem more of a contemporary romance with a erotic edge to it. There was something very stimulating and exciting about the story and Ana and Christian.  I think I have to say that after reading the first book I wondered if I would like the 2nd and the 3rd and it just kept getting better, and we see more of a romance and a intense plot, which is the type that I enjoy. I didn't really like the bdsm aspect of it so much, although there were certain parts that was very intriguing.  Anastasia, is very innocent and naive especially with anything sexual, whereas Christian has more than enough experience with his sexuality, and it was very fascinating  to see how they interact, and we start to see how Christian is so full of so much depth it can be confusing at times, but he is a very strong and appealing hero and you can't help but want to hug him at times. Even though Christian seems to know many things, there is one thing he has a hard time with....Love, which is something that Ana is more than willing to show Christian. I also love how at first Ana seems like a very passive and submissive at first, but we start to see how full of strength and courage she has, and she is far from submissive, she is exactly what Christian needs. I definitely shed a tear or two, watching their love grow and sparkle. I have to say overall I just fell in love with this powerful love story that just takes your breath away.

  3. Mmm... your review got me thinking, I don't usually read Erotic Romance either, maybe because I just don't know a lot about it but I don't know. Your review it's making me thing that there might actually be something to these books.
