    Yeah, I've continued with the series. Why, you ask? Why, when I so thoroughly despised Fifty Shades of Grey, would I do this to myself? Why, for the fun factor, of course! Bad writing tends to make me giddy because I'm much better at being a horribly judgmental person critic than I...

    2 miserable stars Ok. There's a dangerous theme in this book that I want to speak out about: Ladies, despite what EL James says, you will not change your man's personality or fix his age-old sexual perversions in 5 weeks. I thought part one of Fifty Shades series was too tense a...

    I really wish I could manually add a 6th star to Goodreads for this book. I never would have believed it was possible, but Fifty Shades Darker is even better than Fifty Shades of Grey. Hard to believe, but true. Reading this book reminded me of a quote that I love by Alan Cohen, ?S...

    Fifty Shades Darker is the second (and my favorite) installment of the Fifty shades trilogy. I love seeing Christian start to come into his own in this book. His issues come to light, and he starts dealing with them. Christian Grey... one of my original book boyfriends. N...

    WHY? Why did I read this? For some reason I had it on my Kindle for ages, but since reading the disaster that was Fifty Shades of Grey (book 1) I decided not to bother with the second one. Then I found myself suddenly left with nothing to read on my Kindle except this, so I went for it...

    I honestly do not have time to read right now. I'm super busy and sometimes the only time I sit down is on the toilet. Not a romantic place to read this gorgeous, romantic story, but I was very motivated. Following Grey and Ana was my favorite entertainment. I need to clarify whet I ex...

    My review of the first installment is applicable across this entire pathetic, thieving enterprise. My Fifty Shades of Grey review. My Fifty Shades Freed review. My review of the Bundle. It includes some important points I didn't include in these reviews. ...

    Wow, talk about Fifty Shades of bad writing. I'm surprised I made it through this one, but you gotta give it to EL James, even though it's horrendously written, it's darn addictive. There's so many flaws in this book, which make it painful to read. 1. Ana acts like an overly 'in...

    Re-read in January 2015. This was my sixth time reading this book. I wanted at least one last time before the movie is released next month. This time I listened to the audio version and was not impressed. I actually found it annoying but I had waited 6 months on hold at the library ...

    6+ stars to each of the books in the trilogy!! This is how I see Christian: It pains me to no end that I don?t have proper reviews up for these books. These were one of the first sets of books I read when I first started reading series and were a HUGE part of what inspire...

    Round two ? here be spoilers. I personally found Fifty Shades Darker a lot harder to get through. I read the first one in two days because it was entertaining in the fact that it was so, so very bad. This one is equally bad, but it was also incredibly cheesy, boring, and uneventfu...

    The second half wasn't as bad, but the first half felt like a continuing repeat of the initial book. Still hating the inner goddess thing. It's like Ana's talking to another version of herself in her head. Getting tired of all the smirks. Does Christian make any other facial expr...

    I'm moving this to my humor shelf in order to justify giving it a full 2 stars. And I really did laugh quite a bit while reading this, so I'm not just being snarky. Our story begins where the first book left off. Poor Ana is an emotional train wreck after leaving the oh-so-wonderful...

    4 Holy cow Stars :D This is my favorite book in this series, what i loved about it is that they were both equals , both in control , in the first book Anna was naive, a submissive who didn't know what she was signing for probably didn't expect that it would hurt so much to fall in ...

    Oh, Christian, you make MY inner goddess swoon! There is so much to love about Fifty Shades Darker. Fifty Shades Darker is a much more comfortable read than the first book, Fifty Shades of Grey. This book focuses more upon the evolution of Christian?s and Ana?s relationship. ...

    ?This is me, Ana. All of me...and I'm all yours. What do I have to do to make you realize that? To make you see that I want you any way I can get you. That I love you.? Admittedly Fifty Shades Darker is better than Fifty Shades Grey, and it's not beacause of the writing t...

    Right off the bat, I have to say this, and I cannot stress it enough: If you're considering reading this series, I encourage you to be opened minded if BDSM and erotic romance isn't your typical fare (and book number two is not nearly as BDSM as the first, not even close). It's not...

    A couple of weeks ago, I made a bet with [P] to the effect that his review of Fifty Shades of Grey would collect at least 20 votes by the following Monday. The stake was one chocolate penis. I was delighted to see that [P] had quite underestimated the quality of his fine piece of writi...

    Oh, Christian, you make MY inner goddess swoon! There is so much to love about Fifty Shades Darker. Fifty Shades Darker is a much more comfortable read than the first book, Fifty Shades of Grey. This book focuses more upon the evolution of Christian?s and Ana?s relationship. ...

    ?This is me, Ana. All of me...and I'm all yours. What do I have to do to make you realize that? To make you see that I want you any way I can get you. That I love you.? Admittedly Fifty Shades Darker is better than Fifty Shades Grey, and it's not beacause of the writing t...

    Right off the bat, I have to say this, and I cannot stress it enough: If you're considering reading this series, I encourage you to be opened minded if BDSM and erotic romance isn't your typical fare (and book number two is not nearly as BDSM as the first, not even close). It's not...

    A couple of weeks ago, I made a bet with [P] to the effect that his review of Fifty Shades of Grey would collect at least 20 votes by the following Monday. The stake was one chocolate penis. I was delighted to see that [P] had quite underestimated the quality of his fine piece of writi...

    Can't believe I got through this. Okay I skimmed through most of the chapters, but I got a good inkling of what happened. I can understand how mentally unstable Christian Grey can be and how his need to control Ana and her life only to protect her, but good lord he needs to stop. Ana w...

    Astounishing, heartfelt addicting series. I can?t even form the words to express how I felt about this novel. It?s just downright Alluring.The Hero himself is just powerful and so full of a dark tortured soul.He captivates me,on so many different levels. Without him this nove...

    Re-read in January 2015. This was my sixth time reading this book. I wanted at least one last time before the movie is released next month. This time I listened to the audio version and was not impressed. I actually found it annoying but I had waited 6 months on hold at the library ...

    6+ stars to each of the books in the trilogy!! This is how I see Christian: It pains me to no end that I don?t have proper reviews up for these books. These were one of the first sets of books I read when I first started reading series and were a HUGE part of what inspire...

    Round two ? here be spoilers. I personally found Fifty Shades Darker a lot harder to get through. I read the first one in two days because it was entertaining in the fact that it was so, so very bad. This one is equally bad, but it was also incredibly cheesy, boring, and uneventfu...

    The second half wasn't as bad, but the first half felt like a continuing repeat of the initial book. Still hating the inner goddess thing. It's like Ana's talking to another version of herself in her head. Getting tired of all the smirks. Does Christian make any other facial expr...

    I'm moving this to my humor shelf in order to justify giving it a full 2 stars. And I really did laugh quite a bit while reading this, so I'm not just being snarky. Our story begins where the first book left off. Poor Ana is an emotional train wreck after leaving the oh-so-wonderful...

    Round two ? here be spoilers. I personally found Fifty Shades Darker a lot harder to get through. I read the first one in two days because it was entertaining in the fact that it was so, so very bad. This one is equally bad, but it was also incredibly cheesy, boring, and uneventfu...

    The second half wasn't as bad, but the first half felt like a continuing repeat of the initial book. Still hating the inner goddess thing. It's like Ana's talking to another version of herself in her head. Getting tired of all the smirks. Does Christian make any other facial expr...

    I'm moving this to my humor shelf in order to justify giving it a full 2 stars. And I really did laugh quite a bit while reading this, so I'm not just being snarky. Our story begins where the first book left off. Poor Ana is an emotional train wreck after leaving the oh-so-wonderful...

    3.5 KILL THE INNER GODDESS STARS ?I can?t bear to hurt you because I love you" Okay now I'm very confused!? Is this the right book? Did I accidentally download an edited "nicer version"of this book by mistake? What happened to the flogging self serving egotistical ...

    4 Holy cow Stars :D This is my favorite book in this series, what i loved about it is that they were both equals , both in control , in the first book Anna was naive, a submissive who didn't know what she was signing for probably didn't expect that it would hurt so much to fall in ...

    Oh, Christian, you make MY inner goddess swoon! There is so much to love about Fifty Shades Darker. Fifty Shades Darker is a much more comfortable read than the first book, Fifty Shades of Grey. This book focuses more upon the evolution of Christian?s and Ana?s relationship. ...

    ?This is me, Ana. All of me...and I'm all yours. What do I have to do to make you realize that? To make you see that I want you any way I can get you. That I love you.? Admittedly Fifty Shades Darker is better than Fifty Shades Grey, and it's not beacause of the writing t...

    Right off the bat, I have to say this, and I cannot stress it enough: If you're considering reading this series, I encourage you to be opened minded if BDSM and erotic romance isn't your typical fare (and book number two is not nearly as BDSM as the first, not even close). It's not...

    A couple of weeks ago, I made a bet with [P] to the effect that his review of Fifty Shades of Grey would collect at least 20 votes by the following Monday. The stake was one chocolate penis. I was delighted to see that [P] had quite underestimated the quality of his fine piece of writi...

    Can't believe I got through this. Okay I skimmed through most of the chapters, but I got a good inkling of what happened. I can understand how mentally unstable Christian Grey can be and how his need to control Ana and her life only to protect her, but good lord he needs to stop. Ana w...

    I really wish I could manually add a 6th star to Goodreads for this book. I never would have believed it was possible, but Fifty Shades Darker is even better than Fifty Shades of Grey. Hard to believe, but true. Reading this book reminded me of a quote that I love by Alan Cohen, ?S...

    HUGE improvement compared to Fifty Shades of Grey! Still not AMAZING but not bad at all, I honestly enjoyed reading Fifty Shades Darker and I'm looking forward to read Fifty Shades Freed! ...

    Yeah, I've continued with the series. Why, you ask? Why, when I so thoroughly despised Fifty Shades of Grey, would I do this to myself? Why, for the fun factor, of course! Bad writing tends to make me giddy because I'm much better at being a horribly judgmental person critic than I...

    6+ stars to each of the books in the trilogy!! This is how I see Christian: It pains me to no end that I don?t have proper reviews up for these books. These were one of the first sets of books I read when I first started reading series and were a HUGE part of what inspire...

    Round two ? here be spoilers. I personally found Fifty Shades Darker a lot harder to get through. I read the first one in two days because it was entertaining in the fact that it was so, so very bad. This one is equally bad, but it was also incredibly cheesy, boring, and uneventfu...

    The second half wasn't as bad, but the first half felt like a continuing repeat of the initial book. Still hating the inner goddess thing. It's like Ana's talking to another version of herself in her head. Getting tired of all the smirks. Does Christian make any other facial expr...

    I'm moving this to my humor shelf in order to justify giving it a full 2 stars. And I really did laugh quite a bit while reading this, so I'm not just being snarky. Our story begins where the first book left off. Poor Ana is an emotional train wreck after leaving the oh-so-wonderful...

    3.5 KILL THE INNER GODDESS STARS ?I can?t bear to hurt you because I love you" Okay now I'm very confused!? Is this the right book? Did I accidentally download an edited "nicer version"of this book by mistake? What happened to the flogging self serving egotistical ...

    Yeah, I've continued with the series. Why, you ask? Why, when I so thoroughly despised Fifty Shades of Grey, would I do this to myself? Why, for the fun factor, of course! Bad writing tends to make me giddy because I'm much better at being a horribly judgmental person critic than I...

    FIFTY BETTER USES FOR FIFTY SHADES OF GREY PART ONE: #1-15 PART 2: #16-34 Did you know that used bookstores and charity shops are drowning in used copies of FSoG?! Our local ReStore actually put out a news bulletin telling people they were no longer accepting them. HARHARHARHA...

    2 miserable stars Ok. There's a dangerous theme in this book that I want to speak out about: Ladies, despite what EL James says, you will not change your man's personality or fix his age-old sexual perversions in 5 weeks. I thought part one of Fifty Shades series was too tense a...

    I really wish I could manually add a 6th star to Goodreads for this book. I never would have believed it was possible, but Fifty Shades Darker is even better than Fifty Shades of Grey. Hard to believe, but true. Reading this book reminded me of a quote that I love by Alan Cohen, ?S...

    The missus bought a Paperback ...down Tesco, Saturday, I had a look inside her bag; .......T'was "fifty shades of grey". Well I just left her to it, And at ten I went to bed. An hour later she appeared; The sight filled me with dread?.. In her left she held a rope;...

    HUGE improvement compared to Fifty Shades of Grey! Still not AMAZING but not bad at all, I honestly enjoyed reading Fifty Shades Darker and I'm looking forward to read Fifty Shades Freed! ...

    Fifty Shades Darker is the second (and my favorite) installment of the Fifty shades trilogy. I love seeing Christian start to come into his own in this book. His issues come to light, and he starts dealing with them. Christian Grey... one of my original book boyfriends. N...

    Warning: Spoilers abound!! Actual rating: 1.5 stars Honestly, I didn?t read this whole thing; I skimmed most of it and I still managed to get the gist of it. At least I saved myself the torture of reading about Ana?s constant inner monologue. I have to say that my review of t...

    It never happens, but, during the time I was reading Fifty Shades Darker, I was doing some research online for something altogether unrelated, and I came across the following quote. For me, it captures the essence of Ana's love for Christian, and it honestly gave me chills when I read ...

    4.5 "He's my happily ever after," stars First read Feb. 14, 2015 Reread Sept. 23, 2015 Re-reread lol June 1, 2017 Spoilers "I've missed you so much, Anastasia," he breathes. Fifty Shades Darker is the second book in the Fifty Shades Trilogy. Another great book b...

    Read my review on Fiction Vixen Book Reviews. (It is a little different than below.) Read my interview with E.L. James and enter the Fiction Vixen Book Reviews giveaway to win a copy of this book! 4.5 stars I loved it. It was a different experience than the first one; the pace...

    WHY? Why did I read this? For some reason I had it on my Kindle for ages, but since reading the disaster that was Fifty Shades of Grey (book 1) I decided not to bother with the second one. Then I found myself suddenly left with nothing to read on my Kindle except this, so I went for it...

    I honestly do not have time to read right now. I'm super busy and sometimes the only time I sit down is on the toilet. Not a romantic place to read this gorgeous, romantic story, but I was very motivated. Following Grey and Ana was my favorite entertainment. I need to clarify whet I ex...

    My review of the first installment is applicable across this entire pathetic, thieving enterprise. My Fifty Shades of Grey review. My Fifty Shades Freed review. My review of the Bundle. It includes some important points I didn't include in these reviews. ...

    Wow, talk about Fifty Shades of bad writing. I'm surprised I made it through this one, but you gotta give it to EL James, even though it's horrendously written, it's darn addictive. There's so many flaws in this book, which make it painful to read. 1. Ana acts like an overly 'in...

    This copy was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. ARC, publish date September 15th, 2011 The Writer?s Coffee Shop Publishing House After experiencing first hand just how bad it can get, Ana left enigmatic billionaire Christian Grey. His BDSM tastes wer...

    *****FIVE++++ HEARTS & FLOWERS STARS***** {BR with Dee, Mel, and Sharon} Re-Read #4!!! "This is me, Ana. All of me...and I'm all yours. What do I have to do to make you realize that? To make you see that I want you any way I can get you. That I love you." I r...

    Re-read in January 2015. This was my sixth time reading this book. I wanted at least one last time before the movie is released next month. This time I listened to the audio version and was not impressed. I actually found it annoying but I had waited 6 months on hold at the library ...

    6+ stars to each of the books in the trilogy!! This is how I see Christian: It pains me to no end that I don?t have proper reviews up for these books. These were one of the first sets of books I read when I first started reading series and were a HUGE part of what inspire...

    Round two ? here be spoilers. I personally found Fifty Shades Darker a lot harder to get through. I read the first one in two days because it was entertaining in the fact that it was so, so very bad. This one is equally bad, but it was also incredibly cheesy, boring, and uneventfu...

    The second half wasn't as bad, but the first half felt like a continuing repeat of the initial book. Still hating the inner goddess thing. It's like Ana's talking to another version of herself in her head. Getting tired of all the smirks. Does Christian make any other facial expr...
