Review: Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James

Title: Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades #2)
Author: E.L. James
Source: Purchased


Daunted by the singular sexual tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house.

But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades.

While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.


Fifty Shades Darker is book #2 in the Fifty Shades series. In this installment, Ana is dealing with the aftermath of breaking up with Christian. She is miserable and doesn't want to be without him. They rekindle their relationship, but there are a lot of emotional obstacles that Ana must get past.

I liked this book just as much as the first. After Ana left him, Christian realized just how much she meant to him. He has done a whole lot of growing emotionally, and reveals a softer side. He is willing to change his lifestyle for her, and she is trying to do a little compromising in the BDSM department. The sex scenes started becoming too repetitive, but their chemistry stayed sizzling all the way through.

I really enjoy stories with flawed characters. The more you get tho know Christian, the more you realize how messed up he is – but at the same time it makes you care about him even more.

I'm really curious where the next book will lead. This story could have ended with this one, except for the frustrating 2 pages at the end. I'm glad there is still another book though because I'm not ready to be done reading about Christian and Ana.

  1. This is the most revealing in the trilogy. My fave part was when Grace and Mrs. Robinson had their confrontation.
