Erotica at its best,
This review is from: Fifty Shades of Grey (Paperback)
Having been led to these books by Anne Rice, she of the Interview with the Vampire series of books who also wrote erotic fiction under a pen name, I was wary, especially after finding out they were originally from a Twilight fansite.
However, after starting the first book in the trilogy i literally could not put it down. I read the first one in 2 days and finished them all within 5 days.
As erotica you hope they will instill sexual urgings in the reader, and do they ever. I also found myself empathising with both characters, and thoroughly enjoyed their forays into the heretofore unknown sides of both their psyches. The story was interesting in itself, and the sex scenes that followed took my breath away in their intensity and depth.
Those who have no interest in anything other than vanilla may find them a bit too much at times, but i don't feel they were overdone in the bdsm department.
Very well written, very enjoyable and engrossing and more than a little bit of a turn on.
All in all i'd highly recommend them and i will most definitely revisit them over and over again.
