Fifty Shades Darker by E L James
GENRE: Erotica, Romance | PAGES: 532
My rating: ★★★★
I found the second part of the Fifty Shades trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker, to be better than the first.
The writing, again, isn’t high-quality but the author’s characters are very readable and in this book they become more 3D. That development lends itself to the story; pieces of the puzzle fit into place and as a whole makes for an interesting little read.
Have just started part three which, at the moment, feels a bit predictable. That remains to be seen. Here’s hoping for a few twists.
Daunted by the singular sexual tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven, and demanding Fifty Shades. While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront her anger and envy of the women who came before her and make the most important decision of her life. Erotic, sparkling and suspenseful, Fifty Shades Darker is the irresistibly addictive second part of the Fifty Shades trilogy.
