There’s a lot of buzz about the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy written by E L James. Women of all ages as well as men can’t put the book down once they start reading it. And for all of you twilight fans, just know that if Bella Swan had more gumption and sexual curiosity, she might be Anastasia Steele, Fifty Shades‘ 21-year-old heroine, who quickly and decisively loses her virginity to an overpowering man but never relinquishes her fondness for the girlish, clod-kicking expression Holy crap! And if Edward Cullen weren’t, well, a vampire, he might be Christian Grey, the fiendishly rich and handsome sexual fetishist who plays Dominant to Ana’s Submissive.

Fifty Shades of Grey has even been mentioned on the Ellen Show as well as Doctor Oz. So if you want to unwind and forget about wedding plans for just a moment this is our pick in terms of reading material. Here’s a summary below to help peak your interest!

“When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young  entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful,  brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is  startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic  reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to  resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits  he wants her, too-but on his own terms. Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana  hesitates. For all the trappings of success-his multinational  businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family-Grey is a man  tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the  couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana  discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark  desires. Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a  tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you  forever…..”
