So many shades, so little time!
I just finished reading the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy...can you say nonstop steaminess?! I have heard so many things about the books and I had them on my reading list for a while now. I finally got around to them and boy am I glad I did! Now, I have heard things like...filthy, what's all the fuss about, mommy porn, etc. I agree with everyone except the "what's all the fuss about" comment. Yes, it gets good and dirty, yes it is nonstop sexcapades, yes, yes, yes...oh sorry. Anyway, E.L. James (click on her name for link) did a great job of introducing two intriguing characters that could not be more opposite if you tried, added A LOT of steamy bedroom (or playroom) scenes, and still managed to tell a very romantic love story. Personally, I loved it. If you get uncomfortable with reading steamy (or kinky in a lot of cases) encounters then these books may not be for you. Erotica novels can be difficult but I think Ms. James told a different love story with out a lot of cursing or raunchy language. It stayed seductive enough to hold your interest without being over the top and making you feel more like a voyeur than just a reader. I did catch myself a few times wondering if Hollywood could turn these into a film without the XXX rating. Maybe like a Two Moon Junction or even 9 1/2 Weeks? You can find out more about the author, E.L. James at her website or just head over to your local book store and pick up a copy. You can also download a digital copy on your Nook, eReader, or iPad. I purchased two of the three on my iPad and downloaded one from my local library. Happy Reading!
