I have read all three Shades of Grey books. They generated so much hype and controversy I just had to. I found they did not really live up to the hype though. The pros are mediocre at best, and the sex although entertaining, not stellar.
The characters are likeable and the struggle between them is admittedly a page turner. Am I glad I read them, yes. If for nothing else to understand what all the hype was about.Would I read them again, no. However I have recomended it to friends that I feel would enjoy them. I do wish the writer much luck in the future. Good for her ! It is an impressive feat what she has accomplished with a work that started on the web as fan fiction.
