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.

Twiharder next time

yes, there is a pun in my heading. Not sure if many of the readers knew that this book was to be the x rated version of Twilight. Now, yes I'm a Twilight super fan, and I can tell ya the first book I can say with confidence and sarcastically that many lines were nearly plegerized. It was so obvious it was laughable! so we call it a adult parody of Twilight....okay...another TMI, I know the BDSM scene, I actually counsel pairings in the lifestyle and wow, just wow....she most definitely did simple internet searches on that subject. Honestly, the movie was better......if you can imagine that.

better than book one...

much better story than book one. much, Much better.

Ms. James seemed to finally want to grow her characters and it happens in this book. Mrs. Robinson's backstory, Grey's backstory and covered Grey's & Ana's "growth."

As with the first book, there seemed to be a lot of cutting & pasting of the "intimate" moments. But as those were not core to this story, it was less distracting than the first book (though more of them)

Becca Battoe's annoying West Coast speech continues in this audio book. Again, Ms. Battoe does a fantastic job. She brings the emotions of each of the characters to life, she brings each scene to life, I cannot imagine anyone better suited to be the voice of Ms. Ana Steele. Kudos again Ms. Battoe for an awesome job (yeah, your voice isn't annoying it's the West Coast thing...but it is necessary to bring Ana to life...)

Can't wait for what's next!

The book is awesome. I have to admit, I was a little taken back how much I enjoyed listening to it. The only thing that kinda sucks about it the reading of the emails...not so much as the messages, but the addressee, the date, the time, the subject is well...a bit boring...other than that...it's got 5 stars from me
