Young, arrogant tycoon Earl Grey seduces the naïve coed Anna Steal with his overpowering good looks and staggering amounts of money, but will she be able to get past his fifty shames, including shopping at Walmart on Saturdays, bondage with handcuffs, and his love of BDSM (Bards, Dragons, Sorcery, and Magick)? Or will his dark secrets and constant smirking drive her over the edge?

What's there not to love? :-) I love the feel, smell and experience of a good book but nowadays who has the time?
Face it. You're a guy and you want to know what these books are all about but you don't really want to get caught reading the Original. Henceforth, this amusing and charming parody written by Fanny Merkin and wonderfully read/performed by Allyson Ryan. Ryan captures the outrageousness of the story and makes you giggle and the expanded themes ...and sometimes overexpanded themes (I hope) which are in the original "Fifty Shades of Grey".
I found it funny, the storyline a bit thin, but good for a laugh and roll of the eyes.
An impulse buy from years ago, during my 'vitriolic anti-Meyer teen' phase. The premise is a little dull, and the satire is not quite biting, but the narrator herself has enough fun to let you do the same.
