A secret admirer?
Catherine Davies was being stalked by an obsessive admirer. He seemed to know everything about her—where she lived, what she wore and who she went out with. Worse, Evan Lindsay had nominated himself as her bodyguard. Having the devastatingly handsome Evan near at hand was a danger in itself.
Was he interested in her safety or her body? Catherine was starting to lose her perspective…. If Evan was the good guy, who was her secret admirer…or were they one and the same man?
Okay, so am I alone in having not read these books? The reviews are so mixed I’ve not had the urge to read them. Seriously, with 400+ 1 star reviews I’m not sure it’s the book for me. With reviews like RiverinaRomantics, “OK, I couldn’t finish this book. I tried, holy hell did I try – but by 88% I was so annoyed I had to put it down.” And a lot more “couldn’t finish” comments, I was afraid of wasting the money. Have you read it yet?

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.
I just LOVE this cover. I believe it’s the deep red tones with the black glittery overlay that gives it a vivid appeal. I once did an article on romance novel covers and where they’re going (see my post on WeWriteRomance.com). But while I love the hues, it is still a bit more revealing than what I’d like for my young, impressionable boy to see me reading. 🙂
