Sorry it's been such a long time since my last post! Between work, helphing with my cousin's wedding, Baby Chef coming home for a brief visit, and the usual happenings of every day life, unfortunately blogging had been put on the back burner.
Jax from http://www.raviolisandwaterworks.com/ introduced me to Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James in one of her posts about a book club. I did a little research and decided I'd take the plunge and see what this book was all about. Boy, was I shocked! Besides being one steamy book, it has a great story. In fact, it was so interesting, I ended up reading all three books in 5 days! I won't give away the story line but I do recommend this trilogy, even though I wanted to put it down at times because it was just a little too graphic for me.
This is what Amazon has to say:
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.
Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
If you are brave enough to take this on, let me have your thoughts.
