    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "And the story continues . . ."

    This story just continues to be exciting and not just in the bedroom. It picks up right where the first one leaves off. Still a little too much sex for my taste but a great story line.

    Story
    "Cant stop listening"
    Where does Fifty Shades Darker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This series suprised me and it is now my #1 choice.


    What other book might you compare Fifty Shades Darker to and why?

    This series is very tastefully written and I have not found another that I enjoy as much as the fifty shades of gray series. Still searching.


    What does Becca Battoe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think her voice and tone fits the main character very well. She illistrates Anastacia Steel very well and she gives a different feel to the characters than I would have read.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "My fifty shades of f--ked up"


    Any additional comments?

    Cant wait to listen to the series again....

    "Couldn't put it down."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Darker to be better than the print version?

    For me, Yes.


    What other book might you compare Fifty Shades Darker to and why?

    No other, I had never read another book or series like this.


    Which character – as performed by Becca Battoe – was your favorite?

    Anastatsia and Christian


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, when Anastasia was kidnapped


    Any additional comments?

    Love this book series and i love the audible experience, having a full time job, being a full time mom, student and wife there was no other way I would of had time to read this series. I couldn't put it down and not only have i started listening to the first book again i can't wait to see if the author will come out with another series of their life after the last book. I also enjoyed the end of book 3 when Christian's thoughts of his first encounter with Anastasia were revealed.

    Story
    "My Favorite in the 3-Part Series"

    I read this book faster than the other two. And while the "affection" scenes are fantastic, exciting, and boy did I learn a thing or two, I did find this stirred more emotion (above the waistline) and intrigued me more in trying to understand the characters better. It was an insightful journey into Grey's motives, Ana's naive yet limitless acceptance, and how those dynamics combust to make a powerful love story (if we think we can call it love).

    Story
    "WHAT! Awww too sweet"

    I cannot believe that Christian gave Lela a shower or bath or whatever. I know he cares but WTF!
    Other than that I love how great they are together. Christian and Ana are perfect and he is certainly 50 shades but he truly loves her and nothing matters more.
    I was a little off the deep end with Ana and her over thinking though and wanted at times to punch her in the face. Geesh Ana give it a damn rest.
    Happy to know they are getting married.
    I knew Jack had something to do with the helicopter and cant wait to see what he tries next.
    I have a feeling some skeletons are coming out soon!
