Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind - until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time. 

The unworldly, innocent Ana is shocked to realize she wants this man, and when he warns her to keep her distance it only makes her more desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her - but on his own terms. 

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey's singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success – his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving adoptive family – Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a passionate, physical and daring affair, Ana learns more about her own dark desires, as well as the Christian Grey hidden away from public scrutiny.

Can their relationship transcend physical passion? Will Ana find it in herself to submit to the self-indulgent Master? And if she does, will she still love what she finds?

Shelley's Review
Right off the bat, I'm going to say, I've read some damn good books this year...but Fifty Shades is by far my favorite. The content is controversial, difficult to read at times and absolutely delicious in it's delivery. It is most definitely erotica; hardcore and not for the faint of heart...And I devoured it all like the finest chocolate in the world...greedily and with full satisfaction, yet wanting more.
Ana and Christian are amazingly complicated, smart and beautiful creatures, and polar opposites in nearly every way. I fell for them hard and was able to relate to each of them on many different levels. To say it was a rollercoater ride of emotions would be a gross understatement. It was all at once beautiful, funny, gut wrenching, heartbreaking, horrifying, sexy as hell and worth every bit of pain.
Expect to be surprised and enthralled by this story. It's honest, raw human emotion at it's best...and worst. AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ.

Kathryn's Review

HOT DAMN!!  I am so blown away by this book.  It is captivating, HOT, fast-paced, intriguing, and just down right freaking SEXY!! Being introduced to the world of Ana and Christian has plagued my mind day in and day out and I am sooo eager to get to the next one.  
When I heard about the buzz of this book, it definitely piqued my interest and I knew that I had to read it to find out what the hype was about.  Lets just say, I was not disappointed AT ALL!!  Completely erotica, the story-line that flows through it is one of romance as well as everyday relationship struggles.  I found myself emotionally connecting to Ana and falling madly in love with Christian just as she did.  And when I reached the end of the book...OMG...I was crying and had to jump straight in to book 2 right away... 

We both give Fifty Shades of Grey:
