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.

"In a class by itself." (Entertainment Weekly)
Let me first say, I've listened to the entire trilogy in less than 7 days.
Battoe did a much better job on this narration than the first book. I've noticed slight modifications that makes this book a bit more tolerable to listen to. The man impressions still lack a great deal, but she gets her tone slightly to baritone. However, like I mentioned in my Book 1 review, she shines in the explicit excerpts because that is truly how the main character, Ana, is- slightly annoying, naive, inexperienced and whiny.
This story is really a bridge in between the initial meeting (which ended abruptly enough that James literally took one story and sold it into two. This trilogy, to me, is like a Twilight gone less Gothic and more dark and sexual. It's sweet and annoying at the same time.
No stopping here, Book 2 is the half way point.
Just getting started at audible, looking forward to some good books! I work in a library, you would think I would get tired of books but I don't ever get to read so I am going to listen :).
Sexy, ever changing, suspenseful I did not want to put the books down, I looked forward to my reading time.
The suspenseful twists added
Loved them all
Hope the series continues
Love the last book can't believe that she is to marry him but love the book
Christin love him
Less literate and very sheltered people
Narrator was pretty good though the voice of the main character was obnoxious paired with the repetitive word choice written by the author. I could scream if I have to hear the words "bemused" or "kinky fuckery" again.
I love to read southern fiction, family sagas, romance and a bit if fantasy
From James yes but I'm not sure about Battoe
I've never read anything anything quite like this series.
I think it should have been read by James.
The plot in this one is much better than book # 1.
I am very disappointed in the audio version of this book. What is suppose to be an erotic love story comes off as a bland tale of two people. Unfortunely, the audio version destroys the intent and the true nature of this book. Do not waste your money!!! Buy the book and read it. You will enjoy it better.
As long as Becca Battoe is not the narrator
A more experienced narrator with experience reading erotica.
This was painful to listen to. Mostly because of the robotic reader.
I guess Ana. Mostly because you see everything from her point of view.
Only if I have to, to listen to the last book.
The female lead in this book is annoying. Don't waste your credit or your time. I can't get those wasted hours back.
When Christian shows up - from Tango going down.
She had great voices and held your interest.
Wow -- It was hours and hours. I really enjoyed it being read.
Audiobooks is a great service
