Fifty Shades Darker | by E.L. James

Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James
(Viking, 2012, 544 pages)

Alright, so I obviously got sucked into the series. Fifty Shades Darker is book 2 in the series by E.L. James. The relationship between Anastasia and Christian Grey has progressed beyond Grey’s original intention. Ana wanted more from a relationship and Christian is making it a point to give that to her. The twist in this book comes when one of Christian’s former “lovers” comes back into his life with some clear psychological issues. Christian is concerned for Ana’s safety and he beefs up security until he can get control of the situation. Ana’s boss also comes into play because he has his eye on Ana to fulfill a role that goes above and beyond simply acting as his assistant.

At this point Ana and Christian have moved in together and Ana is gaining a little more insight into what has made Christian the way he is. She’s still concerned that she won’t be able to keep him interested because she can’t give him all the things he used to “need” from the relationships he participated in before her. Is there a future for these two without one of them getting hurt…?

I would argue that book 2 is a little steamier than Fifty Shades of Grey. Like I mentioned in the previous review, if books of this nature aren’t your cup of tea, you won’t enjoy this series but if you DO enjoy a little “spice” with your romance, once you finish book 1 you’ll be hard-pressed not to want to go immediately to book 2 😉
