As if this summer wasn’t hot enough, the literary world turned up the heat a few more notches as “Fifty Shades of Grey” took the best seller’s lists across the nation by storm. Now on the New York Times Best Sellers list for twenty six weeks, the erotic and tumultuous love story of Ana and Christian had women all over burning with desire for the one and only Christian Grey.
E.L. James introduces us to Seattle’s most notorious eligible bachelor. The devastatingly handsome business extraordinaire has it all: looks, money and connections to all the right people in all the right places. Anastasia Steele believes it is too good to be true when Grey takes interest in her. The new college graduate, from a middle class upbringing radiates innocence and purity, everything Christian is not.
Their worlds collide in passion and romance as she is launched into his hidden and erotic lifestyle. As Ana attempts to break through Christian’s carefully constructed walls to look into his cringeworthy past, she begins to question herself. Equally torn, Christian is faced with the challenge of loosening the reins he has had tightly wound all his life and opening up in the face of an emotion completely foreign to him; love.
My advice, head to your local bookstore or library and pick up a copy of “Fifty Shades of Grey.” You’ll find yourself caught up in this sultry tale and unable to relinquish your hold until you’ve read every last word. As you reach the conclusion of the book, steady your growing anxiety over the fact that it’s over; this is just book one in the “Fifty Shades” trilogy. I bet you’ll be running to pick up both “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed” within seconds of coming to the gripping conclusion of Fifty Shades of Grey.
