Book Review: DARKER by E L James




E L James revisits the world of Fifty Shades with a deeper and darker take on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the globe.
 
Their scorching, sensual affair ended in heartbreak and recrimination, but Christian Grey cannot get Anastasia Steele out of his mind, or his blood. Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control, and to love Ana on her own terms.
 
But the horrors of his childhood still haunt him, and Ana’s scheming boss, Jack Hyde, clearly wants her for himself.  Can Christian’s confidant and therapist, Dr. Flynn, help him face down his demons? Or will the possessiveness of Elena, his seducer, and the deranged devotion of Leila, his former submissive, drag Christian down into the past?
 
And if Christian does win Ana back, can a man so dark and damaged ever hope to keep her?





Darker is Fifty Shades Darker told from Christian's perspective and it's utterly breathtaking. E L James is one of my all time favorite authors and I would frankly read her grocery list. She writes masterpieces with these books and I've been a fan since the beginning. 

When I heard she was doing Darker from Christian's point of view I knew I was in for a real treat but what she writes...is everything. Getting into Mr. Grey's head is always a delight because it gives you a real sense of his stories. An insight that you won't get from anywhere else. 

One of my favorite things about these books is seeing everything through his eyes. Ana is a beautiful character and one of my all time favorites, and seeing how Christian sees her will leave you in tears. Along with a smile for days. 

These two were destined for each other in every possible way. I loved getting the nitty gritty of his story from his dreams and his past. Loving these characters like I do...I always hunger for more. Nothing is more beautiful to me than seeing Christian and Ana evolve into their relationship. Trusting each other and truly falling in love. 

If you have loved these books and want more, then this is the perfect story for you. It gives such an insight to Mr. Grey's story and I look forward to hopefully reading Fifty Shades Freed in his perspective too.

Its 2017 sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, proved equally popular with fans of Ana and Christian’s story, and the concluding film, Fifty Shades Freed, will be released in 2018.
