Format – E-book

Synopsis Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, the Fifty Shades trilogy will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you for ever …

 Daunted by the dark secrets of the tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Ana Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a US publishing house.

But desire for Grey still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, she cannot resist. Soon she is learning more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades than she ever thought possible.

But while Grey wrestles with his inner demons, Ana must make the most important decision of her life. And it’s a decision she can only make on her own …

My Thoughts  – This is the second book in the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy that i got for Christmas from my fella. I read the first one straight away and fairly enjoyed that one but i actually enjoyed this one a bit more.

This book starts straight after the first with Ana and Christian apart due to events at the end of the first book. I did wonder how there was meant to be more books after the first had finished and to be fair it would have worked as a stand alone book.

It is fairly obvious what will happen between Ana and Christian due to the fact that there are two more books in the series and how it is written makes it fairly predicable. I did like Christian more in this book than the first, he comes across as a nicer person and in this book we finally find out why he is so strange!

I did think that this book had more twists to it than the other, some which were fairly predicable but a couple did shock me with the plot a bit. Of course there is the usual scenes in this book which are fairly frequent but these are to be expected i think in this book. I didnt really see the twist at the end of the book coming though and i want to read the final book just so i know how it ends.

This book is ok and i enjoyed it more than i thought i would.

 Rating – 3/5

    I haven’t read the series yet, but I am quite curious about it. I see people on the tube all of the time engrossed in a copy.
