    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.

    Would you try another book from E L James and/or Becca Battoe?

    Absolutely not by the author, but the narrator could not help the trash she had to read. I was built up to this book by people that read it.. I honestly do not think reading or listening to this book would have helped my review. This book is awful and as GREY as it's title. Save your credit(s)


    What was most disappointing about E L James’s story?

    God, where to start... The OVER-USE of words was horrible. The story was boring, the female character reminds me of a spoiled rotten twit who at 21-22 years of age, has NEVER touched herself or had sex AND has been through college? Hard to believe.. SAVE YOUR CREDIT!!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Male voices were a little... ehh.. lacking, but then again, the story line was not her fault.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Umm.... the fact that it ended... Honestly, folks... that is my honest opinion. I think the cliffhanger is how they end the book, but honestly, I am not riveted enough to download the other books to find out. I could care less...


    Any additional comments?

    Again.... SAVE....YOUR....CREDIT... Perhaps read the book and create your own opinion, but honestly, it is the way this book is written. Maybe if you read it, you can skip through all the "holy crap" parts.... Download Megan Hart's Stranger... a much better "listen"... Trust me..

    This is what happened: I met him at the candy store. He turned and smiled at me and I was surprised enough to smile back. This was not a children's candy store, mind you, this was the kind of place you went to buy expensive imported chocolate truffles for your boss' wife because you felt guilty for having sex with him when you were both at a conference in Milwaukee.

    A childhood accident left Emmaline vulnerable to disturbing fugue states that last minutes but feel like an eternity. The blackouts are unsettling but manageable... until she meets Johnny Dellasandro. The painter gained fame in the '70s for his debauched lifestyle and raunchy art films. His naked body achieved cult status, especially in Emm's mind - she's obsessed with the man, who's grown even sexier with age. Today he shuns the spotlight and Emm... until she falls into a fugue on his doorstep.

    What would have made Collide better?

    I didn't like the story. It was weird to me to have a girl who is 31 and a bit of a brat in a sexual relationship with a 57 year old man.. I love Megan Hart books, but this one lacked.. Sex scenes were ok.. But short and repetitive.. Read another Hart book. I had to stop about 4 hours in..
