MPOV: Fifty Shades of Grey
The above pix was taken from Wikipedia.
I accidentally downloaded this novel in my e-book and deleted it. Yeah, deleted it then regretted my action as I later found out it's quite the rage now. So I downloaded it again, not knowing what to expect as I didn't read the prologue, and this time I read it. Lo and behold, it's a book I couldn't get enough and soon after addicted to it!
It started innocently with how Anastasia Rose Steel met and fell in love with entrepreneur Christian Grey. It's such a light read with much humour in it! As the story gets more intense, it became more intriguing, erotic and so damn hot! Especially when Christian's dark erotic side surfaced, causing discomfort for Anastasia as she's a virgin and also issues in their relationship. I enjoyed how the author captures their journey, their relationship's ups and downs, and the pace was just right. At the end, I was left 'hanging and asking for more'! I didn't know it was a trilogy leh since I didn't read the prologue! Thinking that all 3 books were not related! In the end, believe it or not, I bought the whole set as I felt it's worth keeping in my library *winks*
I will not be a spoiler and reveal all. You can say I got a better understanding of BDSM besides the usual vanilla sex. Honestly, it doesn't sound as bad and sinful once you have understand it (as long as you are not a sadist too). In fact, some of the elements are found in vanilla sex. Anyway, I'm on book 2 now, Fifty Shades Darker, and can't wait to read Christian's view in book 3, Fifty Shades Freed!
