When Anastasia (Ana) Steele does a favour for her best friend and room mate Kate, little does Ana know it will change her life forever.
An ill Kate asks Ana to do an interview with Christian Grey CEO of Grey Enterprises, Holdings Inc.
During the interview with Christian she knows she is attracted to him, she is unsure why he has such an unnerving effect on her. Ana having completed the interview feels she did not do very well. She just can’t get Christian Grey out of her head, there was just something about him, how he connected with her. Ana convinces herself she will never have contact with him again.
Little does Ana know that Christian is attracted to her, like a moth to a flame.
Christian turns up at the hardware shop where Ana works. How did he know where to find her?
After buying a few items and talking to Ana he leaves after giving her his number.
When Kate learns Christian has given Ana his number she urges her to call him to arrange a photo shoot, to go with the interview. Ana calls him and agrees to the photo shoot, it takes place in the hotel where Christian is staying.
Christian wanting to learn more about Ana asks her out for coffee, his main object is to find out if Ana is single and he likes the answer.
He reveals that he also is single but is in no way the original romantic.
When Ana is on a night out with friends she drunk dials Christian, who is angry at the state she has got herself in and put herself in potential danger.
Christian tells her to stay there as he is coming to get her.
Christian admits he wants a relationship with Ana, but it is not the type of relationship she is expecting. Christian makes Ana sign a disclosure form to not reveal anything about him to anyone.
Ana is curious about why Christian is how he is and why he favours his idea of a relationship rather than the “normal relationship”
What has happened to Christian in his past for him to be the way he is?
Ana so wants a relationship with Christian and when he draws up a contract for their relationship and asks Ana to think hard about it, she is in two minds she knows she shouldn’t but deep down she knows she will.
It is only when Ana visits Christian’s home that she starts to see the darker side of him, a side that surprises her.
Ana sees Christian’s play room and this gives her even more insight of what it is he is after.
Will Ana fall in to line with Christian’s ideas of a relationship?
Can Ana find out what has made Christian who he is?
Will Ana have the relationship she dreams of with Christian?
Will Christian ever be able to put his past behind him and learn to love?
Fifty Shades of Grey was a good book but it is not for the feint hearted.
This book follows Christian’s BDSM lifestyle, there are a lot of graphic scenes in the book but an exciting storyline.
There are a lot of moments where you are thinking will they or won’t they.
There are a few phrases that are repeated a lot in the book but when you are engrossed in the book you do not notice it as much.
I found it a very easy book to get in to and once I had got a few pages in to it I could not put it down.
Once you have read this book you will be reaching out for the second one.
Although a very graphic story that touches on subjects that some people may feel uncomfortable with, the storyline was nice and was leaving you hooked, you learn a lot about the people in the book and really get to know them.
