    Twenty Tones of Red by Pauline Montford (PaulineMontford)
    PaulineMontford: Twenty Tones is a 'progression' from this series. It is more intense and the heroine actually wants...even craves...domination. This adds a new twist to her erotic adventures.

Did I just read this book. Oh my goodness, I fear that I did.
This was one of those books that I found for free on the internet. People have been talking about it a lot lately and studying for exams didn't seem terribly exciting so I picked this up. I don't even know how to describe it. It was kind of like a train wreck- you just couldn't look away and put this book down. It was awful! Frankly, the writing was horrible and there was no plot. I don't see the appeal. Except for now that I've been sufficiently traumatised by this book I need to find out what this guy's problem is... but that entails reading the next one or two and I don't know if I dare embark on those...
Also, I can definitely see how this is a Twilight fan fiction- Christian Grey was very similar to Edward Cullen- his music collection, love of cars, stalkerish behavior, dark self-loathing, sparkling in the sun (jk on that last one)... but worse ( )

hated it,gave up! Hated Anastasia naive with no self respect and allows a stalker into her life.Hated Christian for every possible reason. The writing in this book is horrid!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even the sex couldn't make this book better. ( )

With an ending like this, I would usually be sad, devastated or something along those lines. However, one star goes to this one because instead of leaving me in tears, I laughed. It is beyond silly. That never happened before. It is not a case where a reader hates where the characters are going. I don't give lower ratings when that happens, but I don't like when a heroine is this stupid. It isn't about the big picture at all (what she allowed or did not allow, that doesn't matter). It is about her reactions, thoughts and comments to the things she saw and experienced.

“Fifty Shades of Grey” is being released in time for Valentine’s Day. That’s a bold move, since the film is not just unromantic but specifically anti-romantic; take your valentine along, by all means, but, be warned, it’ll be like watching “Rosemary’s Baby” at Christmas

Book description
When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind - until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time.

The unworldly, innocent Ana is shocked to realize she wants this man, and when he warns her to keep her distance it only makes her more desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her too - but on his own terms.



Shocked yet thrilled by Grey's singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success – his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving adoptive family – Grey is man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a passionate, physical and daring affair, Ana learns more about her own dark desires, as well as the Christian Grey hidden away from public scrutiny.


Can their relationship transcend physical passion? Will Ana find it in herself to submit to the self-indulgent Master? And if she does, will she still love what she finds?
