E.L.James, Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades #2)


Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades, #2)Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So in this second book of the Fifty Shades trilogy (which you should have on hand right when you finish the first book, or you’ll rip apart inside) Christian and Anastasia go through the ups and downs of their relationship again. They go through some (quote) kinky fuckery (unquote) and some tender sex and everything in between…again! And again! Again, again…again… we get it! They are trying to meet in the middle or something and -don’t get me wrong- it is exciting to read and it’s still mostly as heartwenching as in the first book. But…I also read the third book and with just a few of those -sometime repetitive- sex scenes removed or at least abreviated this could have been a two book series.

The innocent girl trying to save the (quote) fucked up (unquote) guy gets a little old, I am sorry to say. Especially as she succumbs to some of his sexual preferences and the lines become wishy-washy between what is to be considered acceptable and what is not…

However, there was enough story line in between to make this a satisfying (!) read…

And of course because now you’re hooked and there’s a few open ends hanging loose you’ve got to read book three to tie them up…(no pun intended;)
