When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind - until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time.
The unworldly, innocent Ana is shocked to realize she wants this man, and when he warns her to keep her distance it only makes her more desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her - but on his own terms.
Shocked yet thrilled by Grey's singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success – his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving adoptive family – Grey is man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a passionate, physical and daring affair, Ana learns more about her own dark desires, as well as the Christian Grey hidden away from public scrutiny.
Can their relationship transcend physical passion? Will Ana find it in herself to submit to the self-indulgent Master? And if she does, will she still love what she finds?
Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
Anastasia Steele is days away from graduating from college and heading full speed ahead into her future, when she agrees to to conduct an interview with Christian Grey for her sick roommate. Her life will never be the same. The young, regal executive commands a room like nobody she's ever known, she has no idea. Mr. Grey fancies control. He runs every aspect of his life like a fine oiled machine, from his business to his women, he desires to control all things.
Christian has never met anyone that he couldn't control, why would Ana be the exception? He is immediately enthralled by her. He wants her to be his. The two embark on a journey into uncharted territory. Ana is a virgin who has had very little romantic experience and not the least bit submissive. Christian is an experienced dominant, with no experience in the realm of love. The connection between the two is magnetic, after all opposites attract. Trying to establish a relationship proves difficult, because their differences are like oil and vinegar, no matter how much you shake it up - it always separates. How can they ever make it work?
