When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

My Take:

Engrossing, engaging and erotic as all hell, there were times I felt like I needed more than a cigarette.. I needed a whole carton and a cold shower.  I was almost afraid to have it in my house for fear it would self combust.  No spoilers here, I can't wait for the next book in the series, but I will warn those who are faint of heart, if graphic scenes are a problem for you this is not the book for you.  Me, I loved it...I didn't have the time to read this book and yet managed to carve out the time to read the whole thing in 3 or 4 sittings.

I received this book from my friend to read because I have a bit of a reputation for reading steamy books.
