Daunted by the singular sexual tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house.
But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades.
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life
The break up only lasted a week?! That was my initial reaction. But I can emphatize with the pain of the broken heart, appetite loss and sleepless nights. Being in love and breaking up at the beginning stages was always hell and the make up sex after that... heaven, look what happened to Christian and Ana. The man almost went 360 for her. It was all so very sweet yet I have this feeling that it will not last long. And there it was the drama with the ex-submissive and Mrs. Robinson. But you know it made them a real couple, it was a good and nerve wracking challenege especially if one of the threat/challenge is mentally unstable but book two redefined the relationship of Miss Steele and Mr. Grey. The charity ball at his mother's house was really cool. No wonder there are a lot of funny e-cards out there with Fifty's reference.
I can see that Ana is very conflicted with what she and Christian have in this book. She wants straight up vanilla, romance, flowers and normal. Yet at the same time she wants to be in the Red Room of Pain for Christian and because she kind of wants to. I am also glad that she is more vocal and dares to push Christian's boundaries to understand him better. This is full of cliches, very repetitive, and I got bored with most of the sex scenes (I might have skipped a scene or three), I love and hate it simultaneously. I cannot really blame the book, I mean seriously it is porn I am just happy that there is a bonus story behind it, so I am not complaining much. I am annoyed because I jumped in to the hype and tried to chastise myself, obviously I was unsuccessful. I can't resist it, i can't put it down. I wanted to find out what will happen, how it will end.
