50 Shades of Grey…I’m not getting it.

I wrote about this book back in May when I was about 100 pages into it and I was intrigued to find out about Christian Grey but since then I have read another 100 pages and I can’t get into the hype. I was all for some erotic fiction but this book now irritates me.

50 Shades of Grey is about a relatioship between Christian Grey a millionaire that’s into bondaged discipline, sadism, and masochism and his submissive Anastasia Steele. In short he makes her sign a contract giving all control of her life over to him. I may not be having hot sex at this moment but I would not sign a contract allowing someone to have total control over me even in my desperate state.  Nor would I let them have total control as to what they stick into my various orifices. I deal with controlling people on a day-to-day basis; I do not find them appealing or sexy and I definitely do not want one as a lover.

Let’s talk about the leading man; Christian Grey is a strikingly handsome millionaire?! Yes I realize its erotic fiction but let’s be a little more realistic. If I am going into fantasy land it should be a somewhat attainable fantasy such has a sordid sex affair with the tall sexy beast at the gym (just something off the top of my head but you get the idea).  Rich control freaks are not hot, if you want to get caught up with a hot leading man I recommend reading ‘Outlander’ or ‘A Place Called Freedom’.  Both these men are sweet, sexy, intelligent and manly; plus the stories are a great read.

I’m grateful that I did not buy all three books because they will never be read by me and I am not sure I can even finish the one that I have. Does it get better? Is there any more to this story, I need some substance and so far there isn’t enough to keep me interested in Christine Grey.

I like fluff reading as much as the next gal but I realized that erotic fiction is not for me. I am now jumping off the 50 Shades of grey bandwagon.

Any recommendation for what I should read next?


Fifty Shades of Grey

Recently I’ve been hearing about this book from every one of my gal pals, even my mom has gotten on the Fifty Shades of Grey train. My mom saw it on Ellen and she asked if I heard of the book that it was suppose to be VERY good and she was thinking of picking it up. I find out that this is erotic fiction mom you cheeky monkey you.

Since every woman is a buzz over this book I just had to find out what the big deal is. I am 1/4 of the way through Fifty Shades of Grey and well hot damn, this is a single gals dream read. Since I have no erotic adventures of my own I am easily swept up in this story. The main character Christine Grey is one sexy beast; I had discussion with Triple C about who should play him in a movie.

She said she pictures James Scott from Days of Our Lives

Granted this man is smoking hot and I would seriously consider being his submissive but I’m not quite sure he is a Christine Grey. No one comes to my mind yet, but I still have to finish the book.

Are you reading the trilogy? Who do you think should play Christine Grey on the big screen?

Happy Reading!
