See the world of Fifty Shades of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey.

In Christian's own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world.

Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty—until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him—past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart.  

Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

This book is intended for mature audiences.

Here are a few points... (please make sure you've read Fifty Shades of Grey before going through my review)
  1. Christian is so funny! Yeah. His thoughts are wild yet so funny. Something like DJ... my DOM JEANS! I cannot believe he said that.
  2. Christian actually works! Hell we all thought he's a megalomaniac CEO who come and go as he pleases, but we realize that he has a freaking life.
  3. Christian's staff are so cute and takes care of him very well. 
  4. He took his stalking capabilities to the next level when Ana left. And my gosh! I did not see that coming.
  5. The nightmares are really intense and heartbreaking and thank God, Ana came into his life.
And for the last one... Please make sure you've read the book coz this is a major spoiler, baby!

We all know that Christian Grey finally admitted that he's in love with Anastasia during the intense shower encounter in FSD (if you can't remember, let me remind you again.... Ana: I know how you feel about me. You love me. Christian: Yes, I do). News flash, baby! It isn't the first time!!! You'll find it somewhere in Grey. NOW! Go look for it!

I’m a former TV executive, wife and mother-of-two based in the leafy suburbs of West London. Since January 2012 my life has taken an extraordinary turn with the runaway success of the Fifty Shades Trilogy. From an early age I had always dreamt of writing stories that readers would fall in love with – and my dreams have come true, thanks to you guys. Now that life seems to have settled down a little, I want to crack on and write my next novel – another adult, provocative romance. I do hope you will enjoy that too.

Thank you for all your support. It has meant the world to me. If any one were to ask me for my thoughts about this whole experience, I would say: life is not a dress rehearsal – seize the day and follow your dreams. I wish you the best of luck.

  1. Yes, thank you. The book is really liberated but if you're a sucker for the hearts and flowers romance, I highly recommend the trilogy. 😊
