Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian
Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian | E L James
E L James revisits the world of Fifty Shades with a deeper and darker take on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the globe. Their scorching, sensual affair ended in heartbreak and recrimination, but Christian Grey cannot get Anastasia Steele out of his mind, or his blood. Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control, and to love Ana on her own terms. But the horrors of his childhood still haunt him, and Ana's scheming boss, Jack Hyde, clearly wants her for himself. Can Christian's confidant and therapist, Dr. Flynn, help him face down his demons? Or will the possessiveness of Elena, his seducer, and the deranged devotion of Leila, his former submissive, drag Christian down into the past? And if Christian does win Ana back, can a man so dark and damaged ever hope to keep her?

And that‘s a wrap. A mixed bag this month with some mixed reviews. Some of these I enjoyed immensely and others not so much. Bring it on, May!

Well, that was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting a cheesy, corny retelling and actually experienced Christian‘s inner turmoil, regret and passion. Yes, he‘s possessive; yes, he‘s controlling; but there‘s no doubt he absolutely idolises Anastasia. For escapism with lots of sexy time, passion and romance, this unadulterated love story hits the mark perfectly ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cathythoughts I love it when a book surprises me ... it‘s the icing on the cake 👍🏻 8mo

I read the Fifty Shades trilogy last year for the first time and really enjoyed these cheesy, sexy, fun books. Today‘s #AudibleDailyDeal was, therefore, irresistible.

Okay. I‘m over this now. It was super repetitive and slow for me. Just not worth 500 pages. It wasn‘t awful, but just done with it now for me.

I give up.

This wasn't even a #guiltypleasure - it was just awful.

Knowing the story from Ana's POV it is repetition with a few extra dialogues and some extra scenes. A lot of inner monologue, inner whining...

GAH!

Honestly, I had hoped she had learned some writing skills, this being the fifth book.

HOTPock3tt Lol!! 🤣 Wow! 2y
julesG @HOTPock3tt Don't bother reading it. 'Grey' was okay but this is just ugh! 2y
HOTPock3tt @julesG I was waiting for your review!! 📚 Nope I won‘t bother with it. There are just too many books in my TBR competing for my attention. Thanks for letting us know! ☺️ (edited) 2y

I was thinking about reading in bed. Shadow won't budge, though. He's snoring, which is quite cute.

I'll finish my #guiltypleasure in my reading chair, especially since Ghost doesn't occupy it right now.

I appreciated this book a hell of a lot more than it‘s series counterpart. Fifty Shades Darker was pretty damn boring compared to this. I really enjoyed it. Review/thoughts posted to www.delawarebookaddict.blogspot.com #reviews #books #christiangrey

#cringeworthy - I expect so.

And still, I got the second book from Mr Grey's POV. But have yet to read it. Will need some wine to go with it.

I cannot resist reading this. I feel like I am giving away my guilty pleasure but I do not care at all.

swishandflick No judgement here! I haven't read the books from his perspective yet, but definitely read and enjoyed the original series when they first came out! Have you tried the Crossfire series? So good. I always recommend them 2y
LibrarianJen Are they written better (grammatically speaking) than the first were? I saw them at the bookstore but didn‘t stop to look. 2y
Lauren.Archer @swishandflick yes I really loved the crossfire series also. So so good. 2y

OrangeMooseReads I won‘t lie I read the original series and the first 3 of the crossfire series. Not my thing. I had a friend that was all about them and that‘s why I read them. I‘m OCD about series but I just can‘t do these books anymore. 😁 2y
minkyb No shame here! I read the original 3. Not sure I will read this but glad you will enjoy it. 2y

My review is now live on my channel!! 👉🏻https://youtu.be/89RPVNhs2Sc 🎥 #darker #eljames #fiftyshadesdarker #booktube #adultfiction #contemporary #romance #book #books #christiangrey #anasteele

RadicalReader @stephfafahh I cannot help but think of the comedic but of Peanut and Jeff where it‘s “ Jeff-fah-fah” when I read your username. It will be so nice to have six books so you can read and understand both perspectives of the Fifty Shades Trilogy 2y
stephfafahh @RadicalReader hahaha, when my grandmother is trying to put me in my place in her European accent, that‘s how she says my name. Then when my brother and I first watched the comedic genius that is Jeff Dunham, the nickname kind of stuck. I‘m really excited for the last book too 😊 2y

Is this necessary?? Hell yes! Fifty Shades Trilogy, we see the world through Ana‘s eyes and we didn‘t really know what Christian is 🤔. Christian POV? Definitely answer lots of questions. #eljames #romance #trilogy Especially why he‘s so.... ‘attach‘ to Mrs Robinson in such a weird way. And given a chance, I‘d definitely like to shoot her dead.

Bostonmomx2 Definitely interested in your thoughts. I read the original trilogy and enjoyed it but couldn‘t get into the 4th at all and now this? I‘m confused because I thought the 4th was already his perspective. I kinda feel like this author has nothing else in her bag and is still trying to milk this if she can. 2y
guinsgirlreads @Bostonmomx2 I actually liked the 4th one the best, but I do feel the same way about the author... 🤷🏻‍♀️🤫😊 2y
