Fifty Shades of Grey (book 1)

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

Wow!  What can I say about this book?!  I picked this book up because it seemed like everyone was reading it.  My friends were posting about it on Facebook, it's in the news, on the New York Times Best Seller List....  Since it was everywhere I decided to actually pick it up and read it with everyone for a change, instead of waiting until it died down a bit.  I'm always the last one to read a series!  LOL  

I'm a little sleep deprived, as I could not put this book down!  It all starts with Anna Steele, a college student, who goes to interview Christian Grey.  A business man with dark secrets and personal demons.  She happens to catch his eye and make an impression as he does with her as well.   This young woman is lacking dating experience and is naive.  After the interview and a chance meeting, they seem to want to be with each other.

Christian takes Anna on a date and wants to see more of her, but also offers a warning to stay away from him, he is not good for her.   Well the heart wants what the heart wants and of course they cant stay away from one and other.   Christian has a proposition for Anna which she thinks about.  Anna is reluctant about this deal.  She feels like she needs this man and take her chances on him.

As things progress between the two of them and she is a little unsure of this man and what he wants.  As she begins to see what this man is about and what he wants from her, she decides that this is not what she signed up for.  Can they make it?  You'll have to read it to find out!  

I have to warn you though, some of the material in this book is very sexual and adult.  You might blush you might not, it all depends.  I feel that if you can handle the adult content in this book and follow the story of these two people, you will indeed love this book!  I couldn't wait to read the next book, Fifty Shades Darker,  and see where E.L. James takes Anna and Christian!
