Introduction

Now in hardcover, with a silk ribbon marker and printed endpapers, the first volume of the New York Times #1 bestselling trilogy.

When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is 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 family?Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey?s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

This book is intended for mature audiences.

This book confused me. I did not like how it was written and it made me cringe more times than I can count yet I couldn’t stop reading it as I am on the third installment of the trilogy.
