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.
Look for E L James’ passionate new love story, The Mister, available now.

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.


  • If you loved Christian you will love this book

    I totally loved this book maybe more than 50 Shades. It was a wonderful new journey seeing the world from Christians POV. It truly help the reader to better understand him as a character. If possible I love him even more now.

    I read 50 Shades of Grey prior to knowing there was another version of the story, only told from Christian’s point of view. Although the story line is predictable after having read the first book, Grey fills in gaps that 50 Shades left the reader wanting to know about. For anyone who enjoyed 50 Shades of Grey, I suggest reading Grey as well to complete the basis of the trilogy.
  • Love the series

    I looove this book. I wish she’d write the rest of his point of view. Especially when he lets her touch him. And when they have kids. I wanna know what that feels like to him.

    I’m absolutely in love with Mr Grey!
  • The ending

    By mommajanet
    I loved the ending of this book. For Christian to FINALLY realize that he CAN love Anastasia made this ending worth the whole book. Can’t wait to read the other books!
  • Pretty good

    The overall book was great, but the whole storyline was way too dark. Normal BDSM relationships are never that dark. They’re just normal people that are into that stuff... you don’t need to have a screwed up past to like BDSM

  • I’m not a literary critic...

    By LadyHawke2006
    Nor am I a man. So I’m definitely not qualified to comment on James’s writing in the male voice. What I am is a fan of the FIFTY SHADES books... Faults and flaws included!!!!!! I found it extremely informative to hear this story from Christian’s perspective!!!!!! GREY illuminated the inner turmoil that Christian is experiencing on his journey with Ana. The journey that awakens his humanity... His HEART!!!!!! And the irony is not lost that it took an innocent, inexperienced wide eyed girl with an open heart to open his!!!!!! If you’re a fan of the FIFTY SHADES books, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with GREY!!!!!! My only regret is that there’s nothing more to read... That their story ends with FIFTY SHADES FREED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy reading...
