Review: Fifty Shades Trilogy

Fifty Shades Trilogy

Now available in a single volume, E L James's New York Times #1 bestselling trilogy has been hailed by Entertainment Weekly as being "in a class by itself." Beginning with the GoodReads Choice Award Romance Finalist Fifty Shades of Grey, the Fifty Shades Trilogy will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

This bundle includes the following novels:

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY: When college student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly Ana realizes she wants this man, and Grey admits he wants her, too - but on his own terms. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian's secrets and explores her own desires.

FIFTY SHADES DARKER: Daunted by Christian's dark secrets and singular tastes, Ana has broken off their relationship to start a new career. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and while Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Ana is forced to make the most important decision of her life.

FIFTY SHADES FREED: Now, Ana and Christian have it all - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to turn Ana's deepest fears into reality.

I blame the fact that TMN was airing the first movie every day and commercials for the second movie were on constantly that I finally tried to read these books. So bad. So very, very bad. I couldn’t even get through the third book. If this were good BDSM, that would have been fine. I’ve read good BDSM, this was not it.

Even if you get past the Twilight fan fiction part of things, Christian was just a jerk who liked to beat women who looked like his mother. It wasn’t about sex, it wasn’t about getting aroused by his partner’s arousal from the pain. If he hadn’t been a billionaire, this never would have been published, let alone become a book trilogy that became a movie trilogy. And I don’t like what that says about people. It needed well written sex and an actual plot. Sadly, none of the books had either.
