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)
This second book was the book! It kept me on up three nights in a row and I didn't get to bed until 4 am I was so into it.
I can see the Twilight similarities. She is like Bella.
This book made me cry and I was amazed that I did cry. It also made me laugh I got more into this second part than the first.
It ranks in the same category of the Twilight Saga, and the Hunger Games. It is an easy read. Highly entertaining, but not emotionally wrenching, as more in depth novels can be.
Uh....Mr. Grey. Elevator. Nuff said.
Fun, sexy, easy read.
The author writes mediocre at best. I've seen high school essays with more depth and better command of the English language than this.
EL James' lack of imagination in writing shows up with her constant and distracting use of "holy sh*t" or "oh, my" to everything that happens to Ana. Couldn't she come up with some more interesting phrases than those?
I can understand why this book gets all the hype with the mommy porn throughout, but frankly the story just isn't that interesting. Girl meets guy who is deranged, they have very kinky sex and in the end she leaves him because he likes to hit her (I know there are two more volumes, but please). I listened to about half the second book, but just can't face the boringness of the story that goes on between the BDSM scenes.
The investigation into Ana's inner conflicts, borne out throught her prudish subconscious and her adventurous inner goddess.
I wish there was a set of 3 companion books, written from Christian's perspective!
Dark, Romantic, Suspense
Christian, I liked his tough side, but his tender side when it came to Anastasia
This is a great book as a sequel to the first "Fifty Shade of Gray" book.
Christian Gray has grown on me since the first book. This second book explains more of the "why" Christian is the way he is.
I've gotten use to her voice. In the first book, her voice was distracting at times. Now that I am into the second (and even third) book, I've gotten use to her inflections and various voices used.
Most of the time, I enjoyed the story. The subject matter was very adult for Anastasia's character to have been written as not much more than a teenager. She just seemed so completely immature and her character development was a little slow.
Yes. Overall, I enjoyed the story the more that I listened to it.
I haven't. I think that the only beef that I had with her performance was that she sounded like Anastasia.
Who needs a tag line...just show the picture of Matt Bomer...yum!
I thoroughly enjoyed this listen. I'd say it's definitely in my top three.
Not sure If I have. I'm new to audible and still getting to know all the performers
I really enjoyed this one. It was better than all of them
In this book, I don't think I could pick just one. Becca was very good in this. Better than the first. She really made Christian's character convincing.
Yes I would
I loved how the story picked up right from where the first book Fifty Shades of Grey ended.
I found the second book so hard to put down because you are so drawn to the characters and how their relationships evolve.
I have not listened to any other of Becca Battoe's performances other than the Fifty Shades Trilogy.
Yes if I would have been able to listen to this all in one sitting I would have.
The only thing that would have made this better is if the part of Christian Grey was actually spoken by a man.
