Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The book everyone’s been talking about, now a major motion picture. Young and innocent Anastasia Steele doesn’t quite know what to make of the smouldering industrialist Christian Grey when she interviews him for her student paper. Things get both troubling and extremely steamy when their obvious chemistry leads him to want to introduce her to some unusual pleasures. If you’ve not read it yet and you’re reading this that means you must be intrigued, quick to read, fun, engaging and certainly titillating it’s absolutely worth giving a go.

If you like E. L. James you might also like to read books by Vina Jackson, Sylvia Day and Laurelin Paige.

Synopsis

Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James

The first book in the 100 million copy bestselling trilogy, soon to be a major movie starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.

Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, Fifty Shades of Grey is a novel that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you for ever. When literature student Anastasia Steele interviews successful entrepreneur Christian Grey, she finds him very attractive and deeply intimidating. Convinced that their meeting went badly, she tries to put him out of her mind - until he turns up at the store where she works part-time, and invites her out. Unworldly and innocent, Ana is shocked to find she wants this man. And, when he warns her to keep her distance, it only makes her want him more. But Christian is tormented by inner demons, and consumed by the need to control. As they embark on a passionate love affair, Ana discovers more about her own desires, as well as the dark secrets Christian keeps hidden away from public view...
