    4 stars! Like many, Fifty Shades Darker is my favorite book in the trilogy. Because of this, I was nervous about reading this book. There are certain scenes I needed in Christian's POV, but they had to be done just right to satisfy me. I loved being in Christian's head, but it did feel a lot like reading the original over again. Not that it's a bad thing, I adore the original. I just wish we got a few new scenes from Christian's POV. I think that...

    ➳Christian Grey never gets old, and reading everything from his point of view makes me love him much more... ➳Loved this story! Not much can be said about it since I already knew the story itself, but reading it from his perspective has been an enlighten touch to my adoration and love for this wonderful romance novel. I cannot wait to see the movie and hopefully read FREED in Christian's perspective in the future...➳Thank you so much to Vin...

"Her innate sensuality stems from her innocence: her willingness to experiment, and her ability to trust."Leer este libro para mí fue como salir con mi ex novio, que me fue infiel. El tipo de novio que siempre te trata mal, que sabes que no va cambiar, que tus amigos te critican por salir de nuevo con él, que te da pena decirle a tu familia que lo veras, que t...

    *****THREE STARS*****{BR with Juanita}I'm so disappointed that I didn't end up loving this book.I have to be honest, I skimmed through most of it. Christian was too much of a sap and desperate for Ana's affections. Actually, the both of them with the same insecurities became monotonous. Christian was constantly afraid that Ana was going to leave him again and Ana was afraid she wasn't enough to keep him satisfied. I knew this from the original se...

    This is book two in Christian's pov of the story Fifty Shades of Grey. I will admit that I have a terrible memory, so all the little details, and even a few scenes...I had totally forgotten, which meant it was almost like reading a new book. Of course, all of the main scenes...the ones that I absolutely will never ever forget....were in this book too! It is basically like reading the same exact book!!! There are no new scenes, just all of the sam...

    After I read this book and then I read a few reviews about this book,I do not wish to write a review.I just want to point out three things:1. You never insult other readers/reviewers who like/love/adore a book/series that you hate. Please.2. If you don't like the first book in the series and give a rating of 1 star, you don't have to read the second book in the series. Not much will change. So, obviously you will give 1 star again. And if you don...

    No, thank you. I had hoped this fuckery would be over at some point. Apparently not.
  • Wendy
    Since book 2 was my favorite out of the FSoG series, I just had to give this one from Christian's pov, a go. Not bad I must say, but just like with "Grey", I found there was too much repeated from the second book.Sure we get Christian's thoughts, which I was very curious about, especially because of the parts with Elena and Leila, but for me it was still like reading the same book again...

    November 28th ... can't wait for darker days ❤🖤“Nothing turns out as I expect with Miss Anastasia Steele. Panic knots my stomach once more. Today, I have to negotiate a bigger deal.I want her back.”- Christian Grey* * * “She doesn’t really know me. She doesn’t know what I’m capable of, or why I do what I do.

    Reading the book from Christians POV makes me hate Ana's POV even more becauseFirstly these book don't focus on her inner goddess thank fuck for thatSecondly, its not all about the sex which is a relief.Lastly, the inside of Christians head is SOOOOO much better. He is smarter, more mature and just its a bliss to read.I'm actually looking forward to the third book in his POV.This book is WAY better than Grey and FSoG because quite frankly only ...

    I devoured this book!!! What a beautiful, strong and brave book!! Ugh, it was so courageous. (Yup, I'm being sarcastic.) But I’m a HUGE fan of this series so I’m giving it an obligatory 5 stars. Judge away. LOL.
  • Gi's Spot Reviews
    Awww... Mr. Grey....Yep, I’m one of those full -on Fifty fans till the end, and with pride! This series, like Twilight, changed my life, and I’ll forever be in debt with EL James for the whole new world she opened for this already bookworm. The genre became an absolute addiction, and for that I’ll always adore Christian and Anastacia’s Love story! Darker, gave much more than I was expecting, and that’s saying a lot since I’ve read and...

    Este año me estoy coronando con mis mega-lecturas.Para los detractores de la saga de 50 sombras, tengo que aclarar algunas cosas. Yo acepto y reconozco que en su día, me leí los tres libros de la trilogía del tirón. Que fue un hito en mi camino lector, pues nunca antes había leído nada parecido, y que esto marcó un rumbo en mis siguientes lecturas. Ahora que lo veo desde la distancia, no sé si fue para bien o para mal, pues últimamente ...

    The narrator helped me get through…I have read, watched and now listened to this series. I surprisingly didn’t mind reading Grey even though it was a story retold. I was curious about Christian’s relationship with Eleanor and what makes him defend, befriend and provide for a child abuser. I found some questions were answered but there were things that I was still curious about. When Darker was released, I wasn’t jumping for joy and rushin...

    OK, what to say?I love Fifty Shades. I've loved it since I read it in 2012. I didn't read the fanfic - I hate fanfics. ☺I loved the first book in Christian's POV and I loved this one, but not as much.Darker is my favorite of all three books, but Christian was so mushy in his book. So non-dominant, non-manly, non-CEO-ish. Not all the time, but he mostly was. His only thought throughout the book was his fear that Ana would leave him. And I know t...

    “Baby, you read me like one of your books; except I’m not the hero. I’ll never be the hero”."Nena, me lees como uno de tus libros; excepto que yo no soy el héroe. Yo nunca seré el héroe".¿Qué puedo decirles? Creo que ya todos saben que la saga de Fifty Shades es uno de mis guilty pleasures. Me encanta que sean libros rápidos de leer, que me distraigan de absolutamente todo y que, además, no me atreva a leer fuera de mi casa. Oye, q...

    Mi-a plăcut mult si povestea din punctul de vedere al lui Christian! După cum mă asteptam, aduce unele completări în povestea Anastasiei.

    RESEÑA EN EL BLOG: https://bookstwins.wordpress.com/2018...Muy buen libro, me gustó mucho más que Grey. Además se conocen nuevos detalles de la vida de Christian y de su familia, también tenemos una nueva perspectiva de lo que ya leímos en Cincuenta sombras más oscuras.No veo la hora de leer el último :)
  • Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
    Understanding what Christian thought and suffered through gives so much more meaning to the Fifty Shades series. E. L. James brings us into the mind of Mr. Grey, lets us feel his emotions and showed us just how insecure this man of control really is.As Darker mimics Fifty Shades Darker, we find out just how desperate he was to get his Ana back and what he would do to keep her by his side. His emotions flow off the pages as he lets us see the inne...

    “We’ve chased the dawn, Anastasia. Now the dusk.” Oh be still our hearts; Darker was everything we were hoping and wishing for. There is something about the male POV which truly ensnares our heart and none more so than the voice of Christian Grey. We thought we knew all there was to know about him; his troubled heart and mind, his controlling ways and his boyish vulnerability. The true extent and depths of his mercurial ways though really...

    Yup, not safe. At all. It was kinda bittersweet reading his POV again cause I thought his thoughts about dominance were gonna change a lot, but there were some parts (the majority) that really disturbed me. Mind you I read the trilogy when I didn't have a big issue with cheating or o/w in general, so I'm just giving my honest opinion based on my issues. Overall it's kinda... informative, I dont know what other word I can use. What I really liked ...
