Fifty Shades Darker (EL James)-
This is the second book to the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, picking up right where the first book left off. Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey have many differences that keep them apart, but the electric energy in their relationship (and Jose’s photography show) brings them back together. And once again, we are caught up in their whirlwind romance.
Fifty Shades Darker introduces many new and dark characters. There is Jack, Ana’s boss, who is yet another man who falls for Ana. The more Ana works, the creepier Jack becomes…no wonder Christian has this irrational overprotecting quality to him… Then there is Elana Robinson, or to Ana: Mrs. Robinson. Elena is the women who corrupted Grey in his teenage years, who Grey says changed him for the better, keeping him from ending up in jail. She becomes the person that Ana hates. And then there is Leila, she is from Christians past who has had a psychological break…
Christian and Ana do face some challenges in their relationship, but they’re destined for each other, they both want a permanent future spent with each other.
So much happens in Fifty Shades Darker. We learn about Christians past. Strange things happen with the new characters; Jack makes advances on Ana (inappropriate ones I might add), Leila breaks into Ana’s apartment, and Mrs. Robinson still has feelings for Christian!
I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars. My rating: R
