Fifty Shades of Grey - E. L. James

When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind - until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time.The unworldly, innocent Ana is shocked to realize she wantsH this man, and when he warns her to keep her distance it only makes her more 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 adoptive family –Grey is man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a passionate, physical and daring affair, Ana learns more about her own dark desires, as well as the Christian Grey hidden away from public scrutiny.Can their relationship transcend physical passion? Will Ana find it in herself to submit to the self-indulgent Master? And if she does, will she still love what she finds?

This erotic fictional story could also be titled, “Fifty Shades of Emotions”. The roller coaster ride is overwhelming with it’s depth of different impressionable feelings. The wide range of passion is like trying to hold on to a swinging pendulum. The two main characters, Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, start out from opposite ends of a spectrum as the story unfolds and their insight on understanding and overcoming the struggles and loving affections felt by the heart go through a staircase of trials. True to life, characteristics revealed about them show that neither are perfect in their actions or personal viewed perceptions. Christian, accomplished, rich, and sexy, hides a dark side of desire behind a door that few have seen. Full of anger and scars from his early childhood, a need for dominance and control mold a moody disposition of temperamental behavior that sparks in a new direction with every turn. Ana, graduating from college, is smart, witty, and beautiful, followed by insecure, naive and innocent all rolled in one. The pull they feel between their souls takes them on a journey that starts with this first in a trilogy that is a must in my opinion for everyone.
My Rating - 4.5 (only because the next two installments are even better)
