In Christian's own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world.Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty--until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him--past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian's cold, wounded heart.

    Christian Grey has a dark past that has haunted his dreams his entire life. Yet with absolute control and discipline both in and out of his "playroom," he has become a business prodigy who lives a penthouse lifestyle. All that changes the day Anastasia Steele falls into his office and turns his world upside down. He cannot forget her or check the emotions that being around her bring to life within him. Anastasia is quite a change from women Christian has known, seeing right through his restrained, cold heart to the wounded man beneath. Will Anastasia be able to help Christian drive out the nightmares of his past, or will his dark sexual fantasies, his obsession with being in command, and his self-hatred push her away forever? VERDICT Though some readers of the "Fifty Shades" series might be disappointed that the character they imagined is not the Christian Grey author James writes about here, others will be pleasantly surprised. Through Christian's eyes one gets a glimpse of the troubled, seductive, tormented person he truly is and witnesses his growth from controlling to willing to compromise for what he comes to learn is love. The story is full of hot sexual experiences, from standard "vanilla" to highly erotic.—Colleen Sargent, Lincoln Lib., Springfield, IL (c) Copyright 2015 Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
