The second book in this series.....

 Despite what a lot of people have said about this book...I loved it!  This book is actually my favourite from the Fifty Shades Series. 

Yes, I agree with the people who say Ana is very whiny in this book.  She was my favourite character in the first book, but she quickly became my least favourite.  I still hate the inner goddess dialogue.  

The other characters were all well developed.  I loved that each of them had their own story/issues that connected to the main story line.  

In my review of the first book I say how much I hate Christian Grey.  NOT ANYMORE! I may be a strange person, but I really like the fact that Christian is so (pardon my language) fucked up!  The author really paints the sad, disturbing picture that is Christian`s life so well.  Though I have absolutely no idea what it feels like to go through what he did in his life, I still feel for him.  The emotions felt in this book were so real!  I loved that he in his own little twisted way came up on top despite all of the hardships he endured in his life. 

So to you, Christian Grey...

I love that Ana and Christian start to bring out the best in each other.   They argue a lot, sure...but a lot of the time it was a teasing argue.   He helps her discover herself, and she slowly drags him from the dark into the light.  Despite what a lot of other people say I think they belong together!  

I loved reading their emails to each other.  The cute little signature changes.  The stolen `Laters Baby`.  The twitching palm references.  I loved it all.  

 I liked that the sexual part of this book was a little more comfortable.  It wasnt constantly about the whips, chains and floggers.  There was actual romance, love and infatuation. So you see, there are a hell of a lot more Ì loves in this review than I hates.  The book has all of the elements of a great book.

So to you Ms. E.L. James.....CHEERS!
