CAN SOMEONE TURN ON THE AC?? Umm holy cow! This book is just WOW where to even begin?! I've heard so much about this book lately on goodreads and amazon that I decided, hey why not see what all the hypes about. This book is insane and so good though. I have never read a book like this before that is so graphic and intense, and yet it's so captivating. Here is a little summary:

The book opens talking about Ana filling in for her friend Kate (whom is sick) that has an interview at Grey Enterprises in Seattle. There she meets Mr. CEO Christian Grey. She is so stunned by how gorgeous he is and is blushing constantly. Ana figures she will never see him again, but sure enough  one night she is at work at Clayton's Hardware store in Portland and he is in there, unexpected! (You learn about some of his stalkerish ways later on). From then on she is making plans with him and finding out more about this mysterious Mr. Grey who does not share a lot of detail about his life except that it was hard in the beginning. He keeps dropping hints to Ana that he is no good for her and she is kept guessing until she finds out about his *contract* and the lifestyle he has chosen. She should run off screaming but instead she stays, mainly curious to the whole situation. They start developing a relationship but is it just purely sex or is there something more? Ana's emotions are like a roller coaster lately and is so confused about what to do, she loves him but does he?  This book ends leaving you wondering does she stay or does she go? I love the characters and the chemistry between the two. Ana is hoping for something more, and Mr. Grey you just do not know. I love how the writer describes Christian, he sounds yummy, he is intense, and so mysterious. Ana on the other hand is a normal, average girl who just graduated college.

This has two more books that follow that I can not wait to read.

I do recommend this book, but like I said it does have adult content, quite a bit actually! It is very addicting, and you will be up reading into the wee hours of the morning ;)

“- "Why don't you like to be touched?"
- "Because I'm fifty shades of f*cked-up, Anastasia”
Happy Reading!
