50 Shades of Grey

I know I may be a little late to the party here, but I am now going to share with you my thoughts on the oh-so-popular Fifty Shades of Grey.

For those of you who blush easily, you should probably just not read any further. And definitely don't read this book. It's not for you.

I didn't want to read this book at first because I didn't think there was a real storyline and I am FAR too mature to just read a book about people having kinky sex.
But then I was at Costco and it was the last copy they had and I just HAD to have it.

Then I was too nervous to read it at work because HELLO that's like secretly watching porn on your cell phone on your lunch break.

I have to tell you though, I was pleasantly surprised. There is a REAL love story in it. 
And if Christian Grey weren't so freaking cracked in his head, he would definitely be one of those guys that girls fall head over heels for. I mean, I guess already do, but he's definitely got a few kinks that need to be worked out.

Anyways, to the topic everybody wants to talk about... the sexy bits.
It was VERY shocking for me when I first started out. I was really expecting something more along the lines of the stories at the end of Cosmo every month. You know, the stories where the lonely reporter is caught up in a crime story that has made her a target, and the hunky undercover officer woos her.
This was not like that.
However by the end of the story it was a little less intense. I don't know if that is because I was used to it or if it was because I was so much more focused on what was going to happen with them.
And then it leaves you hanging, and I just want to know what happens next!

Overall, it is a good read if you aren't opposed to reading about dirty dominant sex. I swear there's a good story line in there.
But don't read it at work. Or around your parents. Or in public. 
Or on a plane. You may want to join the mile high club with a complete stranger.
DEFINITELY not at a school.
You should probably just only read it on your honeymoon. That would be the best idea.
Just sayin.

I wanted to like this book so badly but it just wasn't possible. Truth be told it had absolutely nothing to do with the BDSM and/or sex in it, I was totally prepared for all that but the fact that it was written quiet badly is what got me. Christian constantly shoving food down Anna's throat was more than I could handle haha.

The second book however was a lot more interesting plot wise. And I agree, this is definitely not a book you want to take with you to a parent/teacher meeting or church group ;)
