Fifty Shades Of Grey by E L James is one naughty read. I absolutely loved it. As usual, I was behind on the times and everybody I knew had read the book. Except me. I wasn't sure it was going to be something that I could get into or not, but after reading the first book, it left me wanting more. Talk about kinky romance, this book has it all and has become a favourite of mine.
The book begins with Anastasia Steele about to do an interview with billionaire Christian Grey. When they first meet she can't help finding him interesting and a little arrogant, but highly good looking. She soon finds herself wanting more of Christian Grey while new urges swarm through her body. Grey finds himself attracted to Ana as well, and they both can't seem to stay away from one another.
Ana, a virgin, finds out that Christian likes to be in control of everything, especially during sex, where he is the dominant and wants her to be his submissive. A little wary, Ana agrees, but only because she would do anything to be his.
I really liked this book and found that it flowed pretty well. It did take till chapter five to get interesting though. I highly recommend this book and will definitely being reading book two and three.
- Just about everything.
- First few chapters were slow.
- Bottom line
- Love it. New favourite.

I have this in my naughty collection! This one of the rare naughty books that actually focuses not just on the sex but also has a storyline (AT LAST!).
If you want full description without cringe worthy words, then this is for you. I found the BDSM was light in comparison to other books but enough to get arousal going. Has lust, BDSM, decent storyline, and overall a good book. And somehow we all have the fantasy Mr Grey secretly, so easy to relate to.
- Storyline clear and thought provoking.
- Bottom line
- Just buy it! You'll get what the reviews mean when you read it for yourself.

This book is brilliant! It really has everything, it stirs emotion from within, ranging from lust, love, fear and even sadness. It has gripped me so much so, I have read it twice, you can't help but fall in love with Christian and Ana.
It's beautifully written and you can easily place yourself as Anastasia Steele desperately trying to not fall in love with Christian Grey.
- A true love story that's opened my eyes welcomingly/
- There is nothing I disliked about this book.
- Bottom line
- I promise, that once you pick it up, you won't put it down, ever!
