Reading Corner 2013 - Book 6 of 12

Woohoo!  I'm halfway to my goal for the year and not yet halfway through the year.  That is an amazing accomplishment (for me)!  :)

Fifty Shades of Gray - By: E L James

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.

This book is intended for mature audiences.

I emphasized that last sentence because it's a big one.  Definitely intended for mature audiences.  That's putting it mildly, actually.  

When I first started reading this book I did NOT know what this book was about ... at all.  Needless to say the first sex scene shocked me .. big time.  But, like one of my friends said, if you can get past all the sex in this series, it's really a wonderful, deep, passionate love story.  I'm on book two at the moment, but haven't had much time to read lately, so I'm only on the second chapter.  I can't wait to see what happens next in the lives on Ana and Christian. :)
