Fifty Shades Darker by EL James

5 Stars
(Fifty Shades trilogy book 2)

Daunted by the singular sexual 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 her anger and envy of the women who came before her and make the most important decision of her life. Erotic, sparkling and suspenseful, Fifty Shades Darker is the irresistibly addictive second part of the Fifty Shades trilogy.

  My thoughts; The first book had me holding my breath, this one has me gasping! I knew Christian was "swoon inducing" as stated in my Shades of Grey review, but WOW!! He is so much more. Ana is just what he needs, I wish she could see that. I want so much for him to see that he is worthy of her love. And Anastasia to see that he loves her and would love her even if he didn't have the darkness inside him. They are perfect for each other.
When he drops to his knees in front of her, my heart exploded!
I am completely and utterly in awe of this series, captivated all the way to my very soul. It takes an open mind to get through book one (well for me it did) but once you get there you can't escape. I hope anyone who reads this and has not started this series will give it a go. You will not be sorry.
Happy Reading!! :-)


  1. Ditto on the 'dropping to his knees' part--I wept openly. I had texted a friend of mine during the first book that I had a suspicion that there would be a role reversal and BOY was there! When he went missing for a while, my stomach was in knots and the scene with Elena in the kitchen during his birthday party was stunning. Then the hearts and flowers. Holy crap! I was exhausted and exhilarated. Then came the ominous thread that you knew was coming. I hate the thought of finishing Freed but praying for an ending I can live with. For some reason, Jose keeps coming in the picture and I'm not ready for him to be a part of her life...ever. So I HOPE that's now where it goes from here.

  2. Just keep reading! This is one of the most addicting stories I have read in a very long time! You will not be disappointed I promise ;)
