Quotes Shawna Liked

E.L. James
“Let me love you," he says hoarsely.
"Yes," I answer, and turning, he hauls me into his arms, his lips seeking mine, beseeching me, worshipping me, cherishing me...loving me.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“This is me, Ana. All of me...and I'm all yours. What do I have to do to make you realize that? To make you see that I want you any way I can get you. That I love you.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“There's a joy in my helplessness, joy in my surrender to him, and to know that he can lose himself in me the way he wants to. I can do this. He takes me to these dark places, places I didn't know existed, and together we fill them with blinding light. Oh yes...blazing, blinding light." -Anastasia Steele”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“Let me ask you something first. Do you want a regular vanilla relationship with no kinky fuckery at all?"
My mouth drops open. "Kinky fuckery?" I squeak.
"Kinky fuckery."
"I can't believe you said that.'
"Well, I did. Answer me," he says calmly.
I flush. My inner goddess is down on bended knee with her hands clasped in supplication begging me.
"I like your kinky fuckery," I whisper.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“I hug him tightly. “I can’t imagine my life without you, Christian. I love you so much it frightens me.” “Me, too,” he breathes. “My life would be empty without you. I love you so much.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“I don't know whether to worship at your feet or spank the living shit out of you.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“I'm anything but fine. I feel like the sun has set and not risen for five days, Ana. I'm in perpetual night here".”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“His magic is powerful, intoxicating. I'm a butterfly caught in his net, unable and unwilling to escape. I'm his ....... totally his". (Ana to Christian)”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“From his inside jacket pocket he produces a ring and gazes up at me, his eyes bright gray and raw, full of emotion. "Anastasia Steele, I love you. I want to love, cherish and protect you for the rest of my life. Be mine. Always. Share my life with me. Marry me".”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“Why, oh why have I fallen for someone who is plain crazy—beautiful, sexy as fuck, richer than Croesus, and crazy with a capital K?”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“You wanted hearts and flowers,” he murmurs.
I blink at him, not quite believing what I’m seeing.
“You have my heart.” And he waves toward the room.
“And here are the flowers,” I whisper, completing his sentence. “Christian, it’s lovely.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“Don’t leave me,” he whispers.
“Oh, for crying out loud—no! I am not going to go!” I shout and it’s cathartic. There, I’ve said it. I am not leaving.
“Really?” His eyes widen.
“What can I do to make you understand I will not run? What can I say?”
He gazes at me, revealing his fear and anguish again. He swallows. “There is one thing you can do.”
“What?” I snap.
“Marry me,” he whispers.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“I want you, Anastasia,” he murmurs. “I love and I hate, and I love arguing with you. It’s very new. I need to know that we’re okay. It’s the only way I know how.”
“My feelings for you haven’t changed,” I whisper.
His proximity is overwhelming, exhilarating. The familiar pull is there, all my synapses goading me toward him, my inner goddess at her most libidinous. Staring at the patch of hair in the V of his shirt, I bite my lip, helpless, driven by desire—I want to taste him there.
He’s so close, but he doesn’t touch me. His heat is warming my skin.
“I’m not going to touch you until you say yes,” he says softly. “But right now, after a really shitty morning, I want to bury myself in you and just forget everything but us.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“You love strapping me in, don’t you?”
“In any form,” he says, a wicked grin playing on his lips.
“You are a pervert.”
“I know.” He raises his eyebrows and his grin broadens.
“My pervert,” I whisper.
“Yes, yours.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“P.S. I also note that you included the Stalker's Anthem "Every Breath You Take" I do enjoy our sense of humor, but does Dr. Flynn know?”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“I lay awake for hours and watched you sleep," he murmurs. "I might have loved you even then.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“Anastasia Steele. I love you. I want to love, cherish, and protect you for the rest of my life. Be mine. Always, Share my life with me. Marry me.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

E.L. James
“But I'm a selfish man. I've wanted you since you fell into my office. You are exquisite, honest, warm, strong, witty, beguilingly innocent; the list is endless. I'm in awe of you. I want you, and the thought of anyone else having you is like a knife twisting in my dark soul.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

Searock LOL, twenty minutes between books. I love that!


Shawna Well the major cliffy at the end of "Fifty Shades of Grey" didn't leave me much choice. LOL!


.þµŋψà. [Punya Reviews...] Then you have to wait a month for the 3rd book Shawna because this one's also got cliffhangers as far as I know (from the reviews lol). :p


Shawna Yeah, I've since discovered that. I think I'm gonna be a mess if this ends with a cliffy, and I have to wait to read the last book!

.þµŋψà. [Punya Reviews...] I'm waiting to start this series just because of this cliffhanger business. I know I'm gonna bite my nails and fingers off if I have to wait for the books to be out so probably will start after the 3rd book is published. Patience is my other name (er, not LV's Patience mind you! lol). I'm very interested to see what's all this fuss about. I think I'll be able to see it from a clear POV because I've neither read Twilight, nor watched the movie. But I liked your review of the 1st book, just read it. :)

Shawna LOL! I started this and then read something else in attempt to delay finishing it and being so anxious for the 3rd book. We'll see how long I can hold out. Thanks! Let me know what you think when you read 'em.


Eva (TXBookjunkie) I felt that the cliffhanger in this book wasn't as dramatic (horrifying) as the first book's - it felt more like a regular series ending (resolution but still more story to tell). Still, I'll be clicking buy as soon as book 3 releases.


Shawna That's good to know. Thanks, Eva!

I sure will. :)


Amanda The Book Slayer I love your shelves. They make me laugh and I love looking at how you label your books.


Shawna Thanks!
