Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

P.A.Lupton recommended this book to me.

For selfish reasons, I took her up on her recommendation of this book. I hadn’t read erotica fiction before and I wanted to compare a sex scene I’d written in my own novel, Not To Us, to make sure I was within bounds and got it right. Seriously, I worry about this stuff.

Whatever. I was curious how an author “in the genre” pulled it off.

So. The story hooked me right away. I live in Seattle; imagine my happy count to discover it was based in my town. Awesome!

The story is amazing, intriguing, intense, dark, and connects well emotionally. (I know. You thought I was describing Christian Grey, for a moment, until that last part).

Finished last night and I’m still thinking about it! This morning I was relieved to find Fifty Shades Darker is already out. THANK GOD. I wasn’t going to be able to wait too long before finding out what happens to these two.

Geez, I have my own third novel to write and I wasn’t able to put this one down. I love Kindle for a lot of reasons, but being able to read this novel anytime, anywhere was particular helpful. : )
