The second book in the trilogy still has all the main characters - Christian, Ana, Ana's inner goddess, and Ana's subconscious. Christian spends lots of time playing with Ana's sex, which is down ... Read full review

The addition of conflicts (beyond the contrived interpersonal crap between Ana and Grey) was a pleasant surprise. The timeline in this book feels horribly *off* however. It seems to take place over ... Read full review

This book was on fire! Full of passion and imagination. I ate up every bit of it and wouldn't let go. The story of Ana and Christian continues through self-imposed peril, lust, and the wonders of love ... Read full review

2.5 stars. The whole "sex, fight, sex, sleep, sex, sex, fight, sex, sleep" thing is getting old. Is it even physically possible for two people to have sex this much? At least there was a bit more going on in this book than the first one, but it's still annoying. Read full review

I did not think that I would be thinking of reading the second book let alone the third. However, with a villain lurking on the sidelines in the last page or so.... Very light reading and thankfully ... Read full review

Definitely better than the first one, but still not the kind of story I would pick up on my own. I wonder if #3 is any better than #1 or #2? I'm going to keep reading to find out. I applaud Ana for finally standing her ground with Fifty Shades though, and breaking through his shell. Read full review

Fifty Shades Darker felt less sexy and amusing than the first book. Less sexy, because a sex scene (even as hot a sex scene as described by E.L. James) every five minutes gets old (very odd, I know ... Read full review

Another great book in the series. However I wish Ana would grow the heck up. Hopefully she grows in the next book and Christian gets through his issues. Only thing I didn't like was the ending.... Read full review

Fifty Shades Darker is the second novel that follows the all popular Fifty Shades of Grey. From my raw encounter I would agree that FSD is set at a different level.
While I think a lot of woman
girded their loins for this second novel – and I’m sure many couldn’t resist discovering what this – a follow up novel could deliver since Ana left Christian after a serious beating in the first, this novel actually proved to have an intriguing storyline – irrespective of the sex.
I found that FSD wasn’t as erotic as FSOG instead it became sensual – loving even beautiful.
I found myself absorbed in discovering Christians past and relieved at finding reasons for his behaviour. While there was an understanding as to why people compared this storyline to twilight it wasn’t overbearing – obvious. I think the key to the comparison is mostly the pace of the story and the characteristics within Christian which is similar to that of Edward.
While the novel has a flowing line between relief, heartache, progress, humour and suspense I confess that it was good enough for me to want to read Fifty Shades Freed.
I still had issues with some of the writing – the holy cow, my fifty, crap, fuck repeats was still around but for most I enjoyed the writers out right blatant response. I found it to be very womanly – even though I wanted to kill the constant referral to her inner goddess.
I can see why woman find the story intriguing and I was happy to find that Ana grew a pear and took the lead.
