New Review – GREY by EL James

Forget about laters, baby. Grey is live now!


See the world of Fifty Shades of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey.

In Christian’s own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world.
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?

This book is intended for mature audiences.


She’s oil on my troubled, deep, dark waters.

For years, myself and my fellow Fifty Fanatics have begged the talented EL James for more from the sexy, dominant, CEO, Christian Grey, since we were mercilessly teased with part of his POV in the end of Fifty Shades Freed, and to celebrate the birthday of my favourite fictional character–the ultimate book boyfriend–we now have it.

I’ve read FSOG so many times, and I’ve spoken about it with friends and readers even more! We talk about our favourite scenes and it’s always ones that hold a lot of emotion or are intensely sexy, but while reading Grey, I realised that there’s a scene that often gets looked over, but I have never read it without the biggest grin and the fullest heart. And that’s the night they spend together in Christian’s hotel in Georgia. And all they do is…talk. But oh how my heart soars!

I didn’t realise until Grey, just how much of a lonely life Christian led before Ana. Yes, he had staff and family, but most of his conversations and interactions were work related. It wasn’t until Ana that Christian really began to live, never mind feel. No wonder he stalked her!

He came across as robotic as times, though mainly towards the beginning of the book, which could have been purposeful. I guess his life was robotic before it was turned upside down by the innocent Miss Steele.

Grey has everything we wanted in Christian’s POV. The dinner with Mrs Robinson (though short), more about Leila and the “situation”. A session with Flynn. Work life. And so many thoughts and feelings. It made me appreciate Christian and Ana’s story even more now that I’ve seen things through his eyes.

Once again, I’m now begging this author for more. I don’t think it’s possible to ever have enough when it comes to Mr Grey.

I close my eyes, fighting the disquieting sensation that surges and fills my chest once more. It’s like homesickness and a homecoming rolled into one…and it’s terrifying.
