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 the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.

This book again, like, Fifty Shades of Grey, it sucks you in from the first page. Never really knew if I was going to pick up another book in my life until I heard the big buzz about this trilogy.

Things that are great about the book - you can't put it down as you are always wanting to find out what happens next. There are parts where you're hanging on to the edge of your chair because it's so intense, that you don't know where it's going to go, therefore, you don't want to put it down until you find out. After finishing the first book, I went EVERYWHERE around town to try and find the 2nd book (Fifty Shades Darker), and eventually it got too much in waiting, heading straight to the Booktopia web site, I put in an order knowing that it would be in my hands in a few days. Brilliant!!

Wowser!

The plot thickens and suspense builds.
It does become a little 'repetitive' but still worth the read.

      Comments about Fifty Shades Darker:

      Loved this almost as much as the first 2 books. I was a little disappointed with the quick wrap up at the end - it really deserved another book, or maybe that was just me disappointed that the series had ended.

            refer to comments in earlier review of this product.
            Need to read books in right sequence.
            Was great to read that the characters finally overcame their differences and became a family and put behind them the darker shades of grey.
