Review: E.L. James' "Grey (Fifty Shades #4)."
Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/1AIKmyn
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.
Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?
She's oil in my troubled, deep, dark waters.
I have been in Christian Grey heaven reading this book!!! It was well worth the wait, I freakin' loved it. I am a huge fan of the Fifty Shades Trilogy, falling head over heels for Ana and Christian back in 2012 and have remained that way ever since. I couldn't contain my excitement when EL James announced that "Grey" was on it's way. Finally I was going to get more from Christian's POV and I couldn't wait!!
I want her. All of her. Her body and soul. I want her to be mine.
Now, I have to be honest and say that the first part of the story was not what I expected at all. I thought that Christian did not really delve into his feelings as much as I would have liked. I was left wanting more, however after giving this some thought, I realised that Christian Grey's story was a journey and that was exactly what came across in this book. It was interesting to see how he truly felt during those early days and how closed off he really was. Once I reached the half way point of "Grey", things got a lot more interesting as Christian found himself trying to make sense of the feelings that Ana had provoked.
I'd thought that a relationship with Ana was impossible,
but now the future now seems full of possibility.
I loved getting inside Christian's head, discovering how he was feeling during certain parts in the story, how Ana had truly affected him and, of course what happened when Ana was not around. I also loved having the opportunity to step back into Ana and Christians world and revisit some of my favourite scenes and also parts that I had forgotten about. It made me realise how much was sadly missed from the film. There was so much that I would have loved to have seen on the big screen.
She's my dream catcher. She keeps my nightmares at bay.
Reading this book, I was once again captivated by EL James' enchanting love story. I felt so emotional once I had reached the final pages, not wanting the book to end. I need Darker and Freed to be written from Christian's POV now. I feel that I need more of Christian Grey, but I will always be greedy where this series is concerned.
"Grey" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ moving to ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me.
