See the world of Fifty Shades of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey.

In Christian's own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world.

Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty—until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him—past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart.

Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

This book is intended for mature audiences.

Okay, i wasn't really all too bothered about reading this, especially after the film left alot to be desired and now i cannot picture grey as i once had, and then the fleeting moment where Charlie Hunman was going to play the role. I mean look at him; so , i just kinda lost interest, but also like alot of readers of fifty shades, i had to read it because well, we have read all the others. 

y was an average book for me, it was nice to be back in the world that encaptured me for a while; despite its flaws, and despite having read so much better, this was it, this was what recaptured my love for passion/erotica books. However, this book felt more romantic than the others, despite Grey himself spending alot of time convincing Ana (or more himself) that he doesnt do romance.

My friend described him as a pussycat really and she is right, i felt like this big bad domaninat man wasnt that, not really (well i know there is the playroom and stuff but i dont know) I was expecting to learn so much more about what made Grey the man he is. We got glimpses of it, but predominately it was the same story (which again we knew) with additions added and Greys running commentary.

 Ive never had all too much of a problem with Ana, but i wasnt really focused on her in this read, after all - we know the ending. So was Grey a welcome addition to the series? It was okay, i wish there was more Grey history but i also dont want two more books of this, so. Now if we could change Grey in the movies to Charlie then i might be more interested....

I’m a former TV executive, wife and mother-of-two based in the leafy suburbs of West London. Since January 2012 my life has taken an extraordinary turn with the runaway success of the Fifty Shades Trilogy. From an early age I had always dreamt of writing stories that readers would fall in love with – and my dreams have come true, thanks to you guys. Now that life seems to have settled down a little, I want to crack on and write my next novel – another adult, provocative romance. I do hope you will enjoy that too.
