Daunted by the singular sexual tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house.
But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia  cannot resist. They rekindle their  searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven, and demanding Fifty Shades. While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront her anger and envy of the women who came before her and make the most important decision of her life.
Erotic, sparkling and  suspenseful, Fifty Shades Darker is the irresistibly addictive second part of the Fifty Shades Trilogy.


  • Life is rarely black/white

    By SuAngel3
    I personally love 50 Shades! Those who would never consider reading this because they judge (fear?) the term (BDSM) are missing a wonderful adult love story WITH special interest! Smiling. These are not for the weak minded or, closed minded... But for an open adult curious mind. These stories are fun too. Ana's Goddess is a hoot! Relationships are rarely black and white and if so they struggle to endure. Gotta find His view next!

  • Not what I thought it would be

    By Inov8te
    When I first heard about this trilogy I had pre conceived notions that it was just a porno made for mainstream theaters. It took the second movie trailer coming out to peak my interest that these books were about so much more. As I began reading the first book I could not put it down as I read the draw Christian had to Ana even after he knew she was not a typical submissive. After finishing the first book in 2 days the second and third made it nearly impossible for me to function normally till I read them completely. Tears flowed as I realized the change Ana was making in Christian for the better. Healing him, his heart and helping him to feel worthy of love. Yes the sex helped the book along to keep you entertained... aroused even. Only wish this was a series to see them raise their child together and watch their live grow as they both learn how to be in a "normal" relationship.
  • Not the greatest

    By crmoore00
    The sexual encounters become a bit redundant. I like the love story behind it but the writing seemed to drag in certain areas.
  • Awesome read

    This book is amazing
  • Not sure why I read this

    By Ph3013w
    I wasn't really too impressed with the first book but I saw the movie trailer for this one and thought there would be more of a motive to the story. There are a number of repeated conversations and repetitious filler content. There was more of a story line to this book than the first but you need to get through so much of that filler content to move forward with the narrative. The writer was great with being descriptive of the characters' feelings and expressions but, I had to skip through many of the sex scenes and conversations because it was like I was rereading the same thing over and over. Unfortunately, I will probably end up reading the third book because my OCD will leave me feeling incomplete if I don't. Hopefully, it will not be this repetitive and have a little more body to the chronicle.
