 In Fifty Shades Of Grey, author E. L. James introduces readers into the world of BDSM, through his main characters, Christian and Anastasia. The first book highlights the beginning of their relationship and Anastasia’s introduction to the world of BDSM.

In Fifty Shades Darker, author E. L. James begins with Christian and Anastasia’s break up. Anastasia has moved on with her career to Seattle Independent Publishing House, a reputed publishing house where she is hired as Jack Hyde’s personal assistant. Almost immediately, Anastasia begins to feel uneasy around Jack, but she writes it off. She is continually tormented by thoughts of Christian. So when Christian suggests a new arrangement, she doesn’t refuse and the pair rekindle their sensual affair. Unbeknownst to Anastasia, Christian acquires SIP. When Anastasia learns about this purchase, she is enraged. Meanwhile, Christian puts a freeze on the accounts to prevent Anastasia from going on an overnight business trip with Jack. Later, Anastasia discovers that Jack is a philanderer and Christian was simply trying to protect her.

In the second installment, James also reveals secrets from Christian’s past. Secrets or rather demons, which Christian attempts to wrestle. At the same time, Anastasia is confronted by Christian’s previous submissive and paramours. As the pair wrestles with the people from Christian’s past, their relationship continues to grow.

The entire Fifty Shades of Grey series has sold over 90 million copies and topped best-seller charts in the United States and the United Kingdom.
