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.

Not just a sex book!!!

This is not just a typical sexy romance novel. The story line is so damn good! I often bleak out on the sex scenes, I enjoy them, dont get me wrong. But the personal relationships and the story line pulses with building tension betweenn individuals. I love it!

Wow

I must admit, I wanted to slap the author for portraying a woman like that. I settled for researching the person who called himself a writer; boy was I surprised the author was a woman from England. I'm glad you made money from your work, enjoy. I believe you will not have that kind of success ever again.
