Series Fifty Shades #1

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.

I picked this book up because Everyone is talking about the mommy porn book.

What I liked the Most? The contract & negotiations

What I liked the Least? The characters

Review: I saw all the hype about this book and I said hey why not try it. I wish now that I could go back in time & scratch my eyes out. There are not many books out there that I truly wish had never been written, but now I will add another (3) to that list. This book was truly horrible. The writing is insipid at its best and utterly juvenile the rest of the time. The characters are so unbelievable that you disconnect from them immediately.

The only positive thing that I saw was the upfront aspect of the contract (and I’ve seen tons of people bashing that part) but it made me realize that when engaging in any relationship it would be sooooo much easier to sit down and write out a contract of what you expect from that relationship. IE, a contract between best friends might include lunch one day a month, a one hour phone call a week, and text messages (emails) every day. LOL. Start dating someone new, contract for at least 3 months, he will open all doors for you while together, take you out to dinner & a movie, buy flowers on the monthly anniversary of your first date. Could you just imagine the world if that were the case.
