I know I said I would never read this book but yeah . .  crap happens.

21 year old Anastasia Steele goes on an interview with wealthy, attractive Christian Grey as a fill in for her friend who is sick. Instantly she knows she wants this man and oddly enough he wants plain jane Ana too (as she likes to be called).

The thing is Christian is a control freak and there are things he likes done in certain ways. Ana being innocent is opened up to a whole new world (ha) that not only changes her but changes Christian as well.

Before I get into the BDSM, I have to say I loved the story. I loved Christian and I think E.L. James did an amazing job with this character. He wasn’t the typical rich man and his sensitivity surprised me. He wasn’t overly sensitive nor was he a jerk. He cared for Ana maybe even loved her but he made sure she was okay at all time. Granted he pushed the line to damn near stalkerish but I liked him . . . a lot.

I could live without Ana. She wasn’t a bad character but she didn’t make me smile like Christian. AND IM NOT SAYING THAT BECAUSE OF IM A WOMAN EITHER! Ana is young and Christian is her first so I get her back and forth especially since it’s more than vanilla sex . . .  LMAO

As for the BDSM it is not as bad as everyone said it was. I was expecting some really really disturbing things to happen but to be honest the guy likes control and technically that is all he is really doing minus one or two . .  toys.

None the less beyond the crappy sentences and the misplaced words I though the book was good. So good . . . I’m reading number two lol.

8 out of 10.
