Fifty Shades of GreyLarge Print - 2012
THE WORLDWIDE BESTSELLER FEATURED IN THE MOVIE "Book Club"
When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana's quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too--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 family--Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey's secrets and explores her own dark desires.
This book is intended for mature audiences.

SummaryAdd a Summary
THIS BOOK HELPED VERY MUCH IN MY INCREASE OF VOCABULARY WORDS. I CAN'T WAIT TO READ "FIFTY SHADES DARKER". BESIDES THE FACT THAT I HAD A CHANCE TO INCREASE IN VOCABULARY, THIS BOOK WAS REALLY INTERESTING, THAT I CAN'T WAIT TILL THE NEXT BOOK. (:
Anastasia and Christian engage in bondage exploration as they feel they fumble their way toward a real relationship.
TAKE THE SPECIFIC AGE FACTOR OUT AND IT COULD BE,FROM THE ROMANTIC ASPECT ALONE,EVERY WOMAN'S FANTASY GUY.
RICH, EXTREMELY HANDSOME,INTELLIGENT AND VERY ASTUTE IN HIS CAREER.
DANGEROUS ENOUGH TO BE EDGY BUT HAVING A SENSITIVE(ALBEIT HIDDEN)AND ROMANTIC SIDE.
I'D DATE HIM! LOL

“Sometimes I wonder if there's something wrong with me. Perhaps I've spent too long in the company of my literary romantic heroes, and consequently my ideals and expectations are far too high.”
