Death threats and wild sex and love! Oh, my!
As I finish the second book in the 50 Shades trilogy by E. L. James, I find myself deeper in love with the characters and more captivated by the story than I would have imagined possible when I first downloaded these books. Not only have I gone through every human emotion possible throughout the never-ending twists and turns of the plot line, but I’ve come to terms with the fact that had I been born Anastasia Steel, I would have gone through the situation in exactly the same way! I most certainly would have decided to sign the contract, but would have pushed the limits to the extreme in the ways she has, so that signing wouldn’t have been necessary. Holy hotness, I was born to be Anastasia Steel! Where’s my movie contract? 😉
Yes, the writing is still a bit lacking, and yes, the scenarios are still a bit contrived, but I have been seduced by the trilogy. I fully admit, not even begrudgingly now, that I am a fan. The books have bewitched me, as Ana bewitched Christian.
I’ve recommended these books to so many people in the last week, it’s ridiculous. Considering the fact that I work in the field of adult sexuality, and I encounter new people in my business every day, my clients are taking my recommendation seriously, and I’m grateful for that. Those who are avid readers, like myself, will have to set aside the repetitive nature of the writing, of course, but I believe they, too, will be lured into the Red Room of Pain, and come out completely gratified by the experience. And, not only will they be entertained, but it will cause them to think about their own limits and interests with regard to sensuality in ways that they may not have previously considered. If I have but one goal in life, it is to awaken something within those around me, in order for them to more fully explore themselves and find pieces of themselves they never dreamed existed. So, if you’ve not yet picked up your copy of the 50 Shades trilogy, do so. Explore yourself vicariously through the amorous story of Ana and Christian. You may like what you find!
