50 Shades


I was torn about reading this series: 50 Shades of Grey, 50 Shades of Darker and 50 Shades of Freed. I've read other bloggers opinions (mostly, don't waste your time) and yet, it's all over the TV, radio and bookstores. I took a chance on this "Mommy Porn", read all 3 novels and I can honestly say...

I miss Christian.
A lot. There is just something about this man that left me wanting more. I hope and pray the movie that has been mentioned in Hollywood does the series justice.

Let me start off by saying that this book is not well written. It doesn't tug at your heart strings, your pant strings, maybe. It leaves a lot to be desired (no pun intended) but regardless of that, I read all 3 books in less than a week. I just couldn't walk away. I just NEEDED to know how this love story played out. Can the good girl win the heart of a self-loathing Dom?

If I were to rate this trilogy on a scale of 1-5, 5 being amazing, I would give it a 3. Clearly there had to be something redeeming about it since I was unable to give up on it so easy. Yes, I could have done without all the sex. Dear gosh was there a lot of sex but deep down, I like the underlying story. A man tortured by his horrible childhood decides to take over the corporate world and women, controlling both with a take no prisoners mindset stands to learn a thing or two from a 21 year virgin who knows that deep down, a good heart and a wonderful man is lying beneath the kinky f***ery.

In the end, both Ana and Christian get what they want. There are some bumps, issues and exes that muddy it up along the way but overall, love conquers all.

Happy reading!
