Summary (Goodreads):

See the world of Fifty Shades of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey.

Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty—until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him—past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart.  

Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

This book is intended for mature audiences.

My Review:

I managed to listen on the audio version. Zachary Webber’s voice truly made me picture the ever dominant and brooding Christian Grey. So kudos to him. I’m going to be honest, I didn’t enjoy this book.. I was expecting more of Grey’s POV in ALL three books. When I reached to the part 2 of this audio book, I anticipated that this is his point of view in the Fifty Shades of Grey and the first few parts of Fifty Shades Darker. I was right all along. I tend to skip some parts because of it. 

I feel like it completely dragged on and unnecessary. His ‘inner god’ is more annoying than Anastasia’s. I was like, “Holy crap, this is so insta-lust.” The way he fantasized and stalked Anastasia just irked me. His dreams of his traumatic life didn’t really help on getting to know more about him. I am so bored with this book. Sorry, this is a MEH book to me.

Ok. I’m done.
Done listening that his ‘man part’ has its own damn brain. I can’t believe it listens to music or agree on its own. The F.
