Blurb From Goodreads

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.

My Review

This is the second book in the series and we pick up where we left off with Christian and Ana. Ana finds herself in a new job and trying to cope with how things were left with Christian and a boss who is interested in more than just a working relationship.

I really enjoyed this book, more than the first one actually. This one still has all the naughtiness and oh mys that the first one did but I felt there was actually a lot more to the stories and characters this time. We learn more about why Mr Grey is how he is, see their relationship go to a new level and a few obstacles in the way.

Yet again hard to put down and a lot more insight into the characters, I really liked this and will be heading straight into book number 3 as two finished on a great wee cliff hanger so I am dying to know what happens next, 4/5 this time.
