Book Review: Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James

Title: Fifty Shades Darker
Author: E.L. James
Rating: 5/5

Summary: Not your typical romance. Anastasia has left Christian, attempting to create a career for herself at a Seattle publishing house, however, her thoughts are perpetually on Christian and her libido constantly yearning for him. Christian proposes a new arrangement, one vastly different than he is used to and one that Ana cannot refuse. However, they each have their own demons to deal with – Christian and his Fifty Shades, and Ana and the women who have come before her.

Review: Seriously and utterly sucked into this series. I issue my plea again, please Santa leave a Christian Grey under my tree in those sexy playroom jeans, barefoot, and the top button of the fly undone as is proper. That is all I want!

The romance has continued, picked up after Ana has left Christian which is the most torturous time for both of them. E.L James has only improved since the first book of this series. You live each tortured moment that encompasses Ana’s emotions and even Christian’s past. You cannot help but fall in love with these characters and the families of them. Ana is much stronger, much more determined for this relationship to work, and sets some rules of her own that Christian is trying very hard to adapt to.

Between all the struggles and heart breaking events that fill these pages you cannot help but be swept away with all the love and compassion that is in these books. However, they CANNOT be read out of order or you lose key information, you lose important details.

Read Fifty Shades of Grey first, and then this one and then move on to Fifty Shades Freed, to ensure that you do not miss a moment of this heart-stoppingly wonderful story.
