Fifty Shades Trilogy

Now available in a single volume, E L James’s New York Times #1 bestselling trilogy has been hailed by Entertainment Weekly as being “in a class by itself.” Beginning with the GoodReads Choice Award Romance Finalist Fifty Shades of Grey, the Fifty Shades Trilogy will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever. 

This bundle includes the following novels:

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY: When college student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating.  The unworldly Ana realizes she wants this man, and Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian’s secrets and explores her own desires.

FIFTY SHADES DARKER: Daunted by Christian’s dark secrets and singular tastes, Ana has broken off their relationship to start a new career. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and while Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Ana is forced to make the most important decision of her life.

FIFTY SHADES FREED: Now, Ana and Christian have it all—love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to turn Ana’s deepest fears into reality.


These books have been flying off bookstore shelves everywhere and have been on the top e-book sales list for weeks now. I finally broke down and bought the first one, just to see how I liked it. 


This trilogy is steamy. Smokin hot with sex scenes that will scorch your eyebrows and have you grabbing the ice water! The descriptive nature of the sex is well done-it takes you on a journey with Ana as she and Christian as they explore each other and the very different worlds they inhabit. Part of the allure for me was the characterization and conflict between the two characters. I liked that the scenes were done in such a way that it didn't make you feel  dirty, but rather, intimate episodes between two people that were electrified by the forbidden element of bdsm. It gripped me from book one and didn't stop. I will read them all again and soon.

Christian is a Dom and he is looking for a sub. Ana is a virgin and is not part of his world. When the two meet, all bets are off and they both have to learn what compromise is. The musical element introduced adds a level to the story that I found useful and playlists can be found on the author's webpage.

Erotic Music: Run by Matt Nathanson

Matt Nathanson has a hot one with this song! Listen to the lyrics with your eyes closed and think about it. Seduction on high. This song makes me melt every time I hear it. Yes, I even sing it when no one is looking. It reaches down into your soul and makes you just nod your head and smile.
