From the beginning to end, this book had me at the edge of my seat. One hand holding the book open, the other hand reaching for my underwear drawer in case I needed a change. Some of those–ALL of the ‘intimate’ scenarios were extremely hot. Funny enough, when I first heard about the book, and from Wendy Williams no less, she said it was “mommy porn.” She described it as women who were dominatrices. Or at least that is what I gathered from what she was saying. That is NOT what the book is about. I finally decided to buy this book and give it the once over. I’ve been engrossed in sci-fi for the last year and it was time for a change. Oh,my! Ana Steele is a strong female character with a “Bella Swan” weakness to her. She has that whole, “he’s beautiful and too good for me but I’ll never listen and do everything I can to sabotage our relationship” thing going for her. Christian Grey. Well, he just makes me forget I’m a Christian. The way E. L. James portrays this character, the sex appeal and vulnerability just oozes from the pages. I can almost see this man when I’m reading. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a good laugh and dirty secret. haha. You never know when Christian is going to break out the silk tie, and where you’ll be reading when he does. I was in church the first time. Don’t worry. I prayed extra hard for forgiveness. But I couldn’t wait to get home to read some more.
