Book Summary

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 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


To read or not to read, may be a question many of you may ask yourself. And let me tell you, you’d be crazy not to read if you enjoy romance novels.

Is this a conventional romance novel? NO! Does the lifestyle our hero live conform to the average persons. MAYBE NOT. But don’t let that stop you from reading this book. This book is more than that. It’s about overcoming oneself, stripping to the core of who you are. What this couple must face to find and be with one another is nothing short of writing brilliance.

The story is very well written with well developed characters. This is the kind of book that will keep you up all night reading. Is it just that good? YES! I wish I could give it more stars or put it in a category all its own.

Too say more would give too much away. But I will say that if I could bring one fictional character to life, it would be Christian Grey.

*bows down to E. L. James* You have created a story that will go down in history as one of the best love stories ever written.

I'm not quite sure any image could accurately portray but I'll give it a shot, my Christian Grey.


View all my reviews


  1. I originally read this story when it was called Master of the Universe and was a Twilight Fanfiction story. It consumed me for months and was what enticed me into reading much more well-written fanfiction, including alot of m/m romance. This ultimately led to me writing original m/m romance for publication.

    She is a wonderful writer and, yes, this story is remarkable. I remember saying to my husband when he asked me what I was so engrossed in that she should get the story published as it was just incredible. Well, she did! Looks like she's well on her way to a successful publishing career. I wonder what she will write next?

  2. I keep hearing that this was originally twilight fan fiction. I just have a hard time imagining that. I wish I could have read. Was it also m/m?

  3. OMG I too think these are the best books I have ever read. EVER......I want to recommend them to everyone, but I'm afraid they aren't for everyone. I'm not even a freaky sex girl but.....Geez.

    How did I find you? I googled Christian Grey Image.....I am just not right!

    People keep comparing them to the vampire books, I don't see that at all. Personaly, I hope she continues to write, but these will be hard to beat!

    1. These are the best books. I love them and I'm proud to say so.

      Interesting how you found me, too funny!

      I haven't heard that people are comparing them to vamp books other than Twilight because the book started off as Twilight fan fiction. But I don't see it.

      Glad you enjoyed them!

  4. Hey :)
    But what is this sexy mans name?? Haha

  5. Finished the whole trilogy in less than a week! Thumbs up for this book and to your review, too! :)

  6. This book is really beautiful. I can definitely say that most of my friends get it wrong when they say that Fifty Shades of Grey is a bad book. All they know is that there's sexual content, and really what is wrong with sex? I wish they would read it so they'd understand why I love the book.
