Publisher's Summary

Please note: This audiobook contains graphic adult content.

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.

They rekindle their searing, sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven, and demanding Fifty Shades.

While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.

    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).

    "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!

    "Better then first"
    Would you try another book from E L James and/or Becca Battoe?

    Maybe for James and definitely for Battoe


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The stalker. The sex.


    Did Becca Battoe do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I think so. People were way too hard on Becca. I think she did good.


    Do you think Fifty Shades Darker needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope, it ended well enough.

    Story
    "Great follow Through!"
    Would you listen to Fifty Shades Darker again? Why?

    Yes! Because in some spots you are in such a hurry to find out what happens next you don't absorb all the details.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The development of the individual person as well as the development of the couple. A whole lotta' self realiziation goin' on here. There was no overly sweet "I can be blind to everything just for you". There was more "Oh Sh-- Now What" happening, and how to cope.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    Just buy all three in a Bundle.......If you read one you will read all three. It's an Addiction.

    "Great Story, even better performance"
    Where does Fifty Shades Darker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have only listened to 3 audiobook. Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and I am currently listening to Extremely Loud and Incredible Close. This was the best story and Becca does a great job with narration. There were a few other characters introduced in this book and she did a great job with using different voices and tones for each.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christian Grey is my favorite Character because he is so messed up. I like character like that, characters I have to figure out.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Laila in the apartment, and the scene where Mrs Robinson (lol) is confronted by Grey's mom. That was pretty intense


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

    Hearing more about Christian's childhood sadden me
