Boring, Exciting, Relatable
The interaction between Christian and Anastasia was very relatable as a typical falling in love story, with a twist.
The end of the book was moving and made me immediately start listening to the second one.
I think Becca Battoe was not a good fit to read this book. I think she was a cute voice for Anastasia, but definitely not for the delectable Christian Grey. Other than that the book was okay, the first 5 chapters were not well written and I am surprised anyone made it through them to get to an exciting ending. It was a good set up for the next book, which was the best one.
Honestly, I enjoy a good steamy scene... but there was a little too much in this book. I mean, let the girl catch her breath now and then. lol I did have to skip one of the scenes though, it was too gross for me! (I'm sure if you've read it already you know which one...)
I haven't actually looked at the books to see the layout, but listening to it on audio was a little annoying when it came to the emails.

They read all of that to you each time!! ugh. I thought I wasn't going to be able to finish it. But in the end, the story line caught my attention and I've already downloaded the next one so I can see what happens!
I would read it but not listen to it. Narrator just doesn't make you "feel" the story. It needs a mans voice also.
Steel for sure! OMG!!!
Oh yes.....a long Saturday with no kids around!
I love a good book ! Always looking for recommendations !
I loved all of these books, but the narrator's voice in this made me stop listening ! VERY aggravating.
No. The writing is difficult to get past. The narrator's performance is brutal.
I cannot think of another book this poorly written.
If it was written and performed by two other people, yes. The story was good. But since that's not an option - no. It's painful to hear.
The story is erotic and sexy, but the poor writing and worse performance often pull me out of the book. I find myself rolling my eyes every time she "flushes."
Is story is one of great growth! I was really surprised how well the story was.
Becca Battoe is a fantastic narrator ! Her voice is pleasant , and she has these cute voices she does for the characters that are to die for !
I made fun of my wife for reading these books . She dared me to read them , and now I am hooked ! Guys these books are not just for the ladies ! They are great
Be a better book.
Used a wider vocabulary.
I wanted to see what all of the fuss was about...I couldn't really figure it out.
Just me! I love to read! Paranormal Romance and Historal Fiction mostly!
Good Story. Not quite as steamy as some have noted. The characters develop and the story has a good ending and leaves you ready for more.
I loved Becca Battoe as the reader. Her voice was perfect for my imagination to grasp ahold of the characters.
Her voice and character voice changes were very well done. in each scene I was clear about the voices. She was consistent with the voices, so I was always aware of which character was talking. Her voice was perfect for Anna!
Yes, I laughed. I laughed at the crazy sexual relationship the main characters had, and I was so mad at Christian at one point in the story also.
BEST BOOK EVER!!!
NO OTHER BOOK CAN COMPARE!!
This book made me smile, laugh & cry! I absolutely loved it!
Becca Battoe was amazing! I just had to get the second audiobook, reading the regular book & not hearing the voices of Christian & Anastasia just would NOT be the same!!!
