When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees.
Now, Ana and Christian have it all - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own identity. And Christian must overcome his compulsion to control as he wrestles with the demons of a tormented past.
Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to make Ana’s deepest fears turn to reality.

"In a class by itself." (Entertainment Weekly)
I'm 37 years old. A single Mother of two boys and a small business owner.
E. L. James has really got something! This is by far the best story I have listened to, ever! It has everything. I was so into the story that it was almost impossible to turn it off. The narration was great. Becca Battoe got it just right. I very highly recommend the Trilogy.
I thoroughly enjoyed the first book and somewhat enjoyed the second. I felt obligated to listen to the third. After a while the scenes, and whining became repetitive, and I just wanted to get to the story line. I found myself sick of the Anna character for purposly doing stupid things and the repetitive misunderstandings and insights. Glad it is over.
The two main caricatures are starting off at the first steps of life as adults and find each other along the way. Making their lives interesting in so many ways. Loved all three books..
Love, wealth, and acceptance
Gosh, there are so many things memorable moments in this book.. Christian coming to terms with what he and "Ms. Robinson's" relationship was inappropriate. 2) Jack Hyde black mailing Ana because of his jealous towards the Grey family.. 3) Ana putting her life and the life of her baby on the line to ensure the Grey family would be safe... Seriously the entire series had a lot of memorable moments.
One of my favorite scenes is when they are in Aspen and Ana, Kate and Mia are dancing and the big blonde giant makes a move on Ana and she stand up for herself and her marriage.. Another is when she tells Christian she is pregnant and he freaks out but she sets him straight on what's important. I also liked when Ana put her life on the line to ensure that the Grey Family was safe.
"I love you and I am not going to leave"
This is an awesome book series. If you are looking for the erotic nature of the book then that is what you are going to get but if you are looking for a true love story and seeing a person evolve and come to terms with the past, present and future then you will love this book.
Yes -- great book
the love they had for one another
the many voices she uses
My way in learning to relax is to read or to be read to audiblly!
Great, enjoyable, and jaw dropping!
Christian you had to empathize his life a millionaire with a history.
Both it touches All your emotions
I read the trilogy I want more!
Single father of two kids, with a very busy life style. might change some of the people I know like the ex, but not the kids. hard start to life but moving forward, looking for my 50 shades. (ha-ha) Laters Baby
I would listen to this whole series once again cause of the good storyline. The way it started off to the way it ended. Always leaving you wondering if they're going to make it to this relationship. The ups and downs of reality although there throes of passion were a little intense in some scenes. Over all 4* rating.
My favorite character in the book would have to be Anistasia Steel a strong headed with a no nonsense for shenanigans. A woman who never backed down from her beliefs. But yet understood the needs, for the man she loved. Truly learning and understanding the give-and-take aspects of the relationship. I need to change for the people you love. For her enormous passion and care for people around her, and people she doesn't even know.
The way Becca Battoe narrating the book made it enjoyable the way she emphasize different voices for different characters. Not to mention her spunky way of adding emphasis on certain scenes and pleasure to listen too.
A friend recommended this book to me. And I'm grateful that she did. This is a males perspective. And I'm not one for these kind of books. But the dominant submissive position give me a different outlook that would otherwise not have been betrayed in my life. This book was very interesting. And go even though the descriptions of certain intimate scenes were I think a little overdone it was overall still had a very good storyline in the book.
the voice of the narrator is fitting , rather pleasant,
I was really naive to this sexual lifestyle. Needless to say, but I am learning something that has me word for word, Intrested!
great read, I have found it to be rather addictive, hard to bookmark when forced to!
Not a thing!
Already worrying what I will do once I have finished the trilogy! ;-)
This was just bad. I bought the whole series before listening to any and I suffered through all 3 books.
not anything like fifty shades
no. Not unless she learns what writing is all about
The numerous use of the f word is very distasteful. how many ways can yuo have sex
