    Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    While the "Fifty" series is a great get away from it read, I'm baffled by the choice of narrator. Without offense meant to Ms. Battoe, who is a talented audible performer, I was SO DISAPPOINTED in this narrator for the Fifty series. Anastasia IS a college grad aged gal, an maybe that's why the "younger" sounding choice for Becca Battoe, but it simply didn't work for me. I skipped the "audible" version of the final book, opting to read it myself. Sorry Audible, you missed the mark on this one, in my humble opinion.

    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.
