Book 1: Fifty Shades of Grey

Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, Fifty Shades of Grey is a novel that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you for ever.

When literature student Anastasia Steele interviews successful entrepreneur Christian Grey, she finds him very attractive and deeply intimidating. Convinced that their meeting went badly, she tries to put him out of her mind - until he turns up at the store where she works part-time, and invites her out.

Unworldly and innocent, Ana is shocked to find she wants this man. And, when he warns her to keep her distance, it only makes her want him more.

But Grey is tormented by inner demons, and consumed by the need to control. As they embark on a passionate love affair, Ana discovers more about her own desires, as well as the dark secrets Grey keeps hidden away from public view .

First to get it out there... I LOVED THIS SERIES! I absolutely loved Christian Grey, Ana Steele, Taylor, Jose, Elliot, Mia and Kate!
It's an addictive, possessive, trilogy that actually really will stay with me FOREVER! Ive re-read all the books about 8 times each and devoured them every time! The plot, characters and even the scenes I thought were hot, sexy and arousing!
Is it anything like BDSM? NO! It's really not! I mean seriously? E.L. James so needs to do more than "research" although she has wrote an amazing series that has taken the world by storm BUT that is in no way anywhere close to the BDSM lifestyle... in my experience anywho! ;)
Does that matter? Apparently NOT as it's the book that if you ask anyone they've heard of it! It's completely shocking knowing how many people have actually read it who I know and loved it!
Thanks to E.L. James alot of new writers and books have come to the surface so ya have to love it! Fifty Shades of Grey has most likely inspired one of the books you've loved in the last year so... technically... Ya gotta love it!
I will re-read these books again... and have even tried creating my own scenes from the book! ;) But going into that would be telling!
Ana Steele and Christian Grey are two my favourite characters EVER if not the very favourite! :D I love them and will continue to for awhile! :)
Have you read the trilogy? What did you think?
