I first heard of this book from my fellow blogger and friend, Jen. I have to thank her for taking hours and hours away from my life, by reading this book three times! Jen saw it on tv as the hottest book out there for moms. I am not a mom, but I do not think that matters. I got so caught up in this book, I wish there was a Christian Grey out there. I really want to believe there is somewhere!
If you do not know who Christian Grey or Ana Steele are by now, I will briefly explain, then hope you get to enjoy the book as I did! Anastasia Steele is innocent and smart and doesn’t recognize her own beauty. She is in her senior year of college when she goes to interview young, handsome, confident, entrepreneur, Christian Grey, as a favor to her best friend, Kate. Having no clue about Christian’s possessive ways, for a better term, she can not get over the reaction she is having towards him during the interview. The book takes you on a passionate, obsessive, risk taking journey, as Ana comes to terms with Christian’s dark past and erotic tastes. As you read the books, you realize why Christian has chosen the life style he has. I also felt this book to be humorous and adorable at the same time.
It has been compared to Twilight, I only see a few similarities. I feel this book holds its own, and if you want a break from vampires and werewolves, but a close connection with characters, this is the book to go for mature adults! The book will definitely make you blush on more than one occasion. If you are not comfortable with that, then this is not the book for you!
