Fifty Shades Darker [Review]

395 pages [Kindle]
Published 15 Sept 2011

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.

My Thoughts:

What to say, what to say...

This one was good like the first one, but with much less sexytime. To be honest, that part was kind of disappointing. Erotica is good every once in a while.

This one delved more into the Mrs. Robinson era and added a nasty boss for Ana into the mix. I was really surprised at how immaturely Ana handled the whole Elena business and even more how Elena handled the Ana business. I'm curious to see where the cray boss storyline will go.

I liked the 2nd and 3rd books better than the first probably because there was more plot to it and less just sexy time. Not that erotica isn't called for now and again, I just like a bit of story with my sex.

This was by far my favorite of the series.

I didn't make it this far in the series...I don't know why, but I just didn't get drawn in!
