When I look for a story to read I don't usually listen to what others say about it. I want to test the writing, the story and the characters. I look for an eye catching front cover. I am sure I have walked past a million great stories because the cover didn't grab me.

Everything about this book grabs me. The cover is a feast for my eyes. It makes me want to look into the pages to find what lies behind the mask.

I had already cheered for Anna and lusted after Fifty. I thought I knew where these characters would take me. I didn't expect the grief, the fire, the passion, the fear and I did not expect the greatest moment of love to be shown between a grown boy and his mother.

I did not consume this story, it consumed me.

There is not a single story as strong as or more important to me than this one. If I could read only one book for the rest of my days you know this would be it. I'd never be board. I know it would take me to my knees and I know it would make my palms sweat but I also know I would stay hooked, letting my eyes read each and every word.

I thank the author and her editor for taking the time. This reader appreciates the gift.

You think you know the story of Fifty Shades? No you don't. Damn what an opener.

Squalls goes back to ignoring you to read this book and thanks the god of addicted readers for giving her tomorrow off from work. Hell yes!"
