BOOK REVIEW: FIFTY SHADES TRILOGY
Ladies and gentlemen, I had to go out of my way to do a review on this trilogy: Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed by E.L. James. I’ve got three words… hot, Hot, HOT!!!! Allow me to explain… this storyline focuses on a 21 year old college student named Anastasia Steele. Anastasia is a smart, quiet, shy, reserved book worm who has never had a boyfriend or experience anything closely related to sexual intercourse (virgin). Doing a favor for her sick best friend, she is coaxed into during an interview for her school’s newspaper with the gorgeous, cultured, forthcoming, but controlling billionaire, Christian Grey. Upon their first meeting, there is an immediate attraction between the two and Christian (being one that always gets want he wants) desperately wants to pursue her. There’s only one issue – Christian secretly practices in the lifestyle of BDSM (Bondage, Dominant, Submissive, and Masochism). The story plot shares a growing love story between two individuals learning and growing together while trying to find common ground on issues of love, intimacy, trust, compromise, insecurities, understanding, patience, and most of all, sexual exploration.
I’m sure that some of you readers have already heard the jokes, talk, tweets, etc. about this book; nevertheless, please let me assure you that it is a definite must read for both sexes for many reasons. This book can bring some insight to some curious questions that may have plagued your subconscious (but were too embarrassed to ask) and give prime examples as to how to expand or resurrect your love making. Ladies, trust me when I say that your INNER GODDESS will take no prisoners after reading this book! Please let me reiterate that yes, there are a myriad of sexual acts being performed throughout all three books; however, it is not a porno (as some would like to joke). The sexual intimacy is tastefully written during the telling of this love story.
To be fair, my only small complaint about the book was the redundancy of certain words/descriptions/expressions and although it was written by a British author (told in North American vernacular) sometimes she missed her mark with the authenticity of American language and dialogue. Other than that, right on Mrs. E. L. James for writing this erotic trilogy. I’m sure girlfriend is probably saving relationships/marriages around the world, as well as, inspiring others to know what characteristics, physical attributes, and sexual capabilities they desire in their ideal significant other. HAPPY READING!!!
The book was introduced to me by my wife even though I saw the overwhelming response from several talk shows on television. I was very skeptical of reading a romance novel, but I can truly say that I am pleased that I did. The book is very captivating with a high intensity story line. It demonstrates an exciting plot and has various intriguing relationships among the characters. The author has truly found a way to bring a spark of intimacy to any relationship; overwhelmingly exciting any libido that reads this novel. The Fifty Shades series is one that will go down in history by providing inspiration to modern day relationships that falls stagnant with the mundane routine of working, paying bills, and taking care of children, while losing the romantic aspect of intimacy. This book is a must read for both men and women in any relationship. If you are up for the challenge and want to bring the enthusiasm and pleasure of passion into your relationship, read this book now!!!
P.S. To all my fellas, from my own experience I know how we all feel about those mushy, romantic, porn novels that all women read and we cringed at the thought of reading them too. Our initial conjecture of the Fifty Shades series is nothing of the sort; it is truly in a league of its own. Please understand that this book is told from a female’s perspective but does give an insightful view of the psyche of a dominant man taking control in every aspect of a relationship. The reason why women cannot put the Fifty Shades series down is because the book is peaking curiosity, erasing inhibitions and is no-doubt stimulating the interests to pursue out-of-the-ordinary sex in relationships that have fallen into straight platitude. After reading the book, that once before sexually reluctant woman that you once knew - no longer exists. She is ready for you to bring out the beast in more ways than one. We as men have an obligation to read this book to discover for ourselves the appeal that this particular series are having on women across the world. I guarantee while reading the book, you will experience exhilarating creative anticipation and an amazing spark of teenage passion will come forth in your relationship. READ! READ! READ!
