In honor of the lovely and hard Christian T. Grey I will keep my review as honest as possible. This book disappointed me- WAIT - however I loved it. As an avid reader of adult romance novels I'm well aware of the things that go on between the front and back cover of many books in the genre. So after hearing about the book I knew what to expect, yet I didn't find it. There was no totally obscene scenes as so many have implied, but it does have some kinky moments. I, to all honesty, do not understand why there was so much media and talk about the book at all. I was expecting to read about a chained up slave kept in a basement by how people spoke of the book. Honestly people, it's a romantic ADULT novel, there are many many more just like that with way way more explicit scenes. Like my favorite, Sweet Persuasion by Maya Banks. With that said I did however love the book. It's not the romance and passion and pure carnal pleasure that has me hooked, it's the character. Christian Grey is still such a mystery and to me so damn lovable. The plot of the story had me turning pages and so indulgent in the book. I was hooked and am dieing for book number two just to find out what happens. I was so heart broken by the last few pages, to hell with Anastasia. It was very good and in a way an introduction to more "adult" books if you may. 5 stars for a drugging book. Now I will pout till the second and third arrive in the mail.
