Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.
Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of his success—multinational businesses, vast wealth, a loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

All I have to say is be careful where you are reading this, hopefully there is a pool or cold shower close by - you may need to cool yourself off!
I will and have!!!! A fabulous book and series. I originally read the books before the audiobooks were available and now I love to listen to the series as I clean. A beautiful love story.
Twilight It is very similar to Twilight but with a billionaire CEO instead of a vampire.
I don't think it was Becca... I got the one that was re-recorded after everyone slammed the first narrator. I believe this was the same narrator as The Help recording. A very pleasing voice to listen to.
The fact that the characters grow together was very moving.
Get it!!! You wont be sorry!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Yes! Having someone put voices to the characters made it soooo much better
Everything. I thought this book had an excellent story line. Even though it was full of sex, it didn't take away from the actual story. To create the character of Christian Grey! WOW! He is sooo amazing there is no way he can be real. I really wish he was real though.... I would totally drink his bath water!!! Seriously, this was an awesome read/listen!!!
This is my first Becca Battoe, but I liked her so much I have been hunting for her other reads....
Yes, when Christian and Ana broke up! OMG!!! soo sad, but good at the same time!!! Why didn't Ana safe word!!! Poor Fifty!!!
Already read the others one too... Read the all at the same time... So much better!!!

Yes and no - but mainly because I love reading - but listening to it was just as good, plus I could listen to it at work
"F*ck the paper work" - it's a moment in the elevator....you can feel the emotion, it's awesome.
I felt like I was in Ana's head....it was easy to imagine Becca's voice was Ana's voice
All of it....but I love this book after I read chapter 1
Becca does her best - I could not stop laughing after she did Christian's voice the first time and it took a couple chapters for me to REALLY get used to it - but if you love the books, and I do - you can look past all that and listen to what she is saying rather than vocusing on her voice.
Not sure what to say really. I love listening to audio books. :)
I was absolutely captivated. Teased. Excited. Could NOT put it down. I may need to have a talk with my husband! LOL
It was dark and romantic.
She has a very soothing voice. To hear that voice describe such dark matter was captivating.
Absolutely! It turned me on and opened my eyes to a side of myself I had NEVER even imagined existed. I cannot put into words it's full effect on me.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? lol. I totally did.
I did warn her that it is a bit intense, kinda twisted, and very hot.
This book is only for the open-minded, but I actually like it more than the sequels because I think they get a bit tame. . .in comparison. :)
P.S. I actually liked the narrator. It worked for me.
P.S.S. Check out the E L James web-site. The soundtrack is AWESOME!
Oh god, the ending for sure. I admit, I couldn't wait 10 more days for my new credits and actually bought more.
never knew what to expect
lots of twists and turns. She was able to bring him out of his horrible past
I think she did a fine job
On my second listen
I would listen to this book again. I got all 3 and loved the story line. I love this Trilogy so much I also got the books for my shelf.
There so many memorable moments that I just can't name one.
I love the way Becca Battoe reads and and her ability to differentiate characters.
Well now (fans blushing face), that was an interesting listen. The story definately had threads of Twilight-likeness to it. Ultimately I was able to separate out the two stories pretty well. Interesting and erotic to say the least. One thing that kept me from adding a few more stars to the review is Ana's inner monologue. It's partially the author's fault and partially the narrator's fault for the annoyance I think. "Oh my" "Oh my" I'm a bit of a geek and every time she said "Oh My" I thought of George Takei... awkward!! But the frequency with which she says it and the way the narrator speaks it was grating. Of course that isn't enough to stop me from downloading books two and three...
