GREY ( Book Four) Fifty Shades of Grey

 GREY

imagesD43S5M07

Grey is the Fourth Book of the Fifty Shades of Grey Series. I am very glad that I read this book I was hesitant of reading it because I had assumed that it was all going to be the same but boy was I surprised that it felt very different and as I read more I wanted to find out where this book was going to reveal and what were the thoughts of Mr. Grey meeting Anastasia for the first time in his office. I have to say it was so intense Christian didn’t sugar-coated anything. He went straight to the point to the things he wanted to say to her but wouldn’t dare to say it out loud. It was graphic more than Ana’s point and this was a wonderful surprise and that’s why I kept reading because it was nice for me to read something and have the male telling his point of view.

 For example when Mr. Grey goes into the hardware store he actually just went to see her he never had any business meetings to attend and he was in denial of already liking this girl who interviewed him and that he only claimed to want her as his submissive

Here we have Mr. Grey thinking how was he going to break it down to her and ask her if she wanted to be his submissive. He was afraid of rejection and in the first book when Ana was telling it we had no idea this is what he was thinking of being so afraid she would say no. So than there he decided to stay in the city and invited Mrs. Steel for coffee or something and then break it down to her about this whole submissive stuff.

All this little things that were going in his head is what made me read more and I think I enjoyed reading this book more than all the first three books. I do hope the author continues and gives us all three books of his point of view. Because hands down I will be buying those books too. I honestly would have liked these books to have been the first three in Christian Grey’s point of view instead of Ana. The reason I say this is because her subconscious would drive me crazy it was a little annoying how low self steam she had and I get we would probably all would have that at first if we had a rich guy come up to use and wanting more than a submissive relationship but it kind of got old.

Anyways the bottom line is that I do recommend these books but I would have to say start with the fourth book Grey and then go with the first, second and third book last. I do hope there is more of Mr. Grey point of view for book two and three. My rating for this book is a four star because I was very happy with the outcome of the book and all those surprises that I thought this book was going to be like and the author left me completely in awe.

Book Review

I am in-loved with this series really its been a while that I have not read something so good that I could not put this book down. The characters were awesome I really, really liked them a lot. I think they were very well written and they were even charming even the bad guys were made really bad that I really felt like i hated them and wanted them to get captured by the cops and put in jail and never see the light of the day. Specially the dad and the uncle how could a father be so abusive and accuse his daughter for being responsible for the mother leaving them both.

I read this book really quick because it is a little short but with a lot suspense and thrill of what was going to happen next and how this story was going to end. I will recommend this series to everyone because I really enjoyed it a lot and it was such a joy to read this story….

Book Review

So I received this Ebook as a gift from a contest I entered and I absolutely loved it. The characters were awesome and very well written. The chemistry between Josylnn and Marshall was very good and kept me interested the whole time. I was able to read this book in one sitting due to that it was short book. But it was a good read full with suspense of what was going to happen next with Josylnn’s attacker that is non other than her father but he had some help from the least people you would have thought. I was shocked when I found out who it was. This book awesome I can’t wait to read the second book and find out what happen with Marshall and Trevor after Josylnn and him got attacked at Frank’s place.

I am rating this short story a 4 stars for all the excitement that it made me feel while reading it. Plus I really don’t have anything negative to say other than it was too short but I was warned so no big deal. Also want to recommend this book since I really liked it and if your into Suspense thriller with some hot romance than this is your type of book trust me you wont be disappointed.

My thought on Fifty Shades Freed

Title Fifty Shades Freed 

Author E L James 

Rating 4.0

Book Review

Fifty Shades Freed is the third book of the series for those that don’t know but come on I think everyone knows about this books and what they are all about that’s why I skipped the book description and just wanted to talk about what were my thoughts on this book itself.

Well I have to say that this has been the one book that I liked most out of the three. Why because it had more drama and I got to find out who was behind all those incidents against Christian Grey at first I thought it was going to be Elena because I thought she was going to have feeling for Grey after all now that Ana was in his life I thought she would realize that she has lost him. Plus I thought she was seeking revenge for the way things went down when Grace found out what had happen many years ago with her son and Elena. But Erika did a good job in not making Elena be the bad guy otherwise it would have been too predictable. Yes I have to admit when I found out that Jack was behind it and who was his accomplices that was the really shocking. I loved it how it all played out and how Christian came to rescue Ana even after she made him believe that she was after the money and that was it.

When I read that I had to reread that part again my ears could not believe what I was reading. I also enjoyed how Ana was able to help Christian with his need of that playroom she was willing to compromise and that was something I really enjoyed reading otherwise I think this book would have lost its touch on the whole sex thing.

Another thing I would like to add is that in this book we find out more of Christian’s background we find out what Jack and him had in common which was also another shocking news to read. As well as how things started between him and Elena that sexual lifestyle I also enjoyed Kate and Christian brother ending up together and finding out the sex of Ana’s baby and plus she had another child with Christian and now living in that beautiful house he bought her.

I am looking forward to read more books of this author and however I don’t know if I will be reading Grey’s book in his point of view when he meet and all that because it sounds me like I know the story I did get to read that in the third book when she comes and interviews him what he was thinking but it didn’t make want to read it. So with this I would like to conclude my book review.

Fifty Shades Darker

fifty shades darker

Title Fifty Shades Darker

Author Erika L James

Pages 532

Rating 3.92

 Fifty Shades Darker is the second book of the Fifty shades series and way better than the first and this is my humble opinion. I read this book very quickly and jumped to the third one immediately. This book for we was just great due to all the suspense it had and just the fact that I got meet one of the ex subs of Mr. Grey which by the way she was very crazy and intense I really enjoyed how the author made her in this book.

She broke into Christian’s apartment and the security didn’t even noticed to me that was pretty cool. Also we have Jack Hyde who is a creep and who was trying to get into Anastasia’s panties since he meet her and Christian even warned her about it and she just didn’t want to believe Mr. Control Freak (A.K.A) Christian Grey. Like he would say “Ana be careful around that creep he wants to get into your panties” and at first I thought he is just being paranoid about the whole thing. But when Jack tried to hit on Ana at the office I was freaking out I thought for sure he is going to rape her and Christian was going to kick his butt or even worse have Taylor kill him.

Another interesting character from this book was Mrs. Robinson who is this woman well non other than the woman who introduced Mr. Grey into the whole life style this the woman who took advantage of him when he was only a teenager and when Ana found out who she was Ana didn’t want anything to do with this pedophile just as Ana would call her. When they first talked at a family charity event at Christian’s mom’s house Elena wanted a word with Ana and I pretty much-loved the way how Anastasia treated her and spoke to her in a magnificent way. But the best part of all was Christian’s mom finding out about what had happen between Mrs. Robinson and Christian and Ana was there front and center she witnessed everything and could not move.

I could keep going and going guys but there is more and you should read it.  At first I had my reservations about reading these books but as I kept reading I liked it more. Erika did a wonderful job in this second book, I will admit that I am glad I didn’t gave up on these books and I can’t wait to tell you about book three.

BOOK REVIEW

Okay this book was amazing I absolutely loved it. Jude and Noah and grandma’s Sweetwine bible quotes were super hilarious I think for the most part of the book I was always looking forward to see what grandma Sweetwine had to say.

What I loved about this book was all the characters there was not one that I didn’t like. And  I think its crazy because as I am thinking about it and writing it down I can’t believe I am saying this. The twins were crazy but sweet too just to read about them and how they interacted and how they could communicate to each other at points were they didn’t have to say anything one knew what the other was thinking how crazy is that right. Also the dad when they first had that fight in the other room and the twins were listening I immediately thought what a jerk of a father they have how did the mother marry this guy did any of you think that. Well I sure did but I knew something was up and that there was a reason for it. Also seeing how Noah falls in love with a boy who was a big shocker to me because I have never read about same-sex falling in love and it was okay at first a little weird but not gross at all I don’t have anything against the people with the same-sex falling in love just to be clear.

When I meet Guillermo it was lovely I thought to my self what is wrong with this person how come he does not want to teach any students and is an Igor I think the author just had the perfect nickname for him to describe him that way. And then meeting Oscar how loony he was just like Jude I think the orange thing did it for me I was shocked about it and how Jude’s reaction to it was perfect. gosh I can keep going on and on but these were some of the things I loved about the characters. The book was amazing I hope you who is reading this gives the book the chance I mean you will really love it. Hands down I give this book a five star and recommend it to everyone it does not matter the age you have this a one amazing young adult book I am so happy I came across it.

Review

I have a whole mix of feelings for this book and I am trying to be nice and considered of what I am about to write in the next couple paragraphs. First of all I would like to say some kind words to the author. I would like to say you did a beautiful job writing this book and all the excitement that came with it during those underground fights.Every time Travis Maddox had a fight I felt front in center of that basement looking at him fight and I betting on him and making some good money unfortunately I was not their at all but for a short while reading the book I traveled in my mind to Eastern University as crazy as that might sound to others.

I believe you did a beautiful job writing Travis because he came across to me as a mysterious hot sexy guy. I have never loved Tattoos before but something about this book made me think they were sexy on him. I wanted to know about Travis because of his anger management that he had every time Abby left him. He got out of control and I got scared I was like oh my god he is going to kill someone you sure made me feel that way and I love to have feelings for all of my books because if I don’t feel anything it’s NOT A GOOD BOOK. as crazy and twisted as I sound right now you might think I have some problems of my own. The point is that Travis was Sexy bad ass and a ladies man but also had a sad story he lost his mother at a very young age and he felt different when he was with Abby he even said it him self.

Now going into more detail with the story my first favorite part that I liked about this book and you had my whole attention was the opening part where they first meet. I was ecstatic I was fascinated with the whole underground fight and I was like they are going to get caught in any minute of this fight but they sure didn’t and it was awesome. How you made Abby and I feel Mesmerized at Travis. I could picture myself in that situation and looking at a fight like that. As they got to know each other I liked how she was upfront with him of putting him in his place and how she mention to him more than once she would not sleep with him I was like yeah right girl.

I caught myself laughing a lot while reading this book. At the comments both Abby and Travis said to each other i think it was sweet to do that and that made me like the characters even more. Hey if I can get a laugh out of them those are very well written characters and that’s just my opinion, Secondly I was excited when I saw how a sweet talker Travis Maddox was with Abby specially when she lost to the first bet they ever made. I could not stop smiling because I knew she was going to lose and then what will happen between them two,

Another situation that I found funny was when Abby goes and meets Travis family and bonds with them to the point they invite her to play a game of cards and the brothers taught oh she will lose and they were going easy on her and then she started to kick their behind in the game until she wiped them out. Reading how Travis were making fun of his brothers saying my girl just wiped my brothers money that was awesome I could not stop laughing in that moment as I was reading that now writing this down and sharing it with you makes me wanna laugh even more again.

Thirdly I enjoyed when Travis was with her by her side when her father comes in the picture and asks her to help him with the money because he owed money to a big mob guy and he was no one to mess around with. And that was what drove Abby to go to Las Vegas and bail her father out when the unexpected happens and adds more thrill to the story and suspense of what will happen next. When Abby didn’t come up with the whole money and was five thousand short.

IT got intense I have to say Travis didn’t leave her side and he went in their with her to defend her from Benny and he was upset when she showed their and with not the whole amount of money. Things started to even get better Travis got in and kicked some behind and Benny was impressed that no Travis was going to fight a professional due to he had kicked Benny’s fighter behind and now he need to take his place and Travis agreed if he would let that be the payment for the missing cash that Abby was not able to come up with. I loved how he rescued the day in that situation.

Now that they were out of the woods another situation would test their love for one another. Travis just had won a big fight and he let that get to his head and shared a bomb shell with Abby about what had Benny offered him when Abby heard she was hurt and felt angry at him for thinking of taking up his offer she asked him more than once if he had signed something or agreed to something with Benny. Travis responded with no I told him I had to talk with you first and I would give him a call. Abby just hoped that when they were back at the university he would change his mind and the whole thing would stop but he didn’t he started talking about all the things he could buy her and how he would pay for her tuition and his Abby was going crazy and try to talk him out of it. She wanted to run home when they got back at campus and breathe some different air.

Now lets start with the not so nice I got really annoyed with fact that Abby could not make up her mind one minute is was with Travis and then she was with Parker. She wanted to be with both of them at the same time. And when things got hot in the kitchen she could not handle it. Travis forgave her because he was in deep crazy head over hills over her.

Every time they fought he had to do something stupid. Like when they were not dating yet and I can’t remember the argument oh yeah because there were so many gosh. Anyways my point that I am trying to say is that he brought two girls he had a three some in his living room and his cousin and girlfriend were in their room and Abby was in his room listening to all that sex they were having she felt disgusted he was a pig an a big A about it too. Her friend felt sorry too and she packed her bags and wanted to take her home and then Travis walks in with a whole bunch of food and how she ends up staying with him I was like what the hell.

In the middle of the book I felt like this too

with all the fighting they would do and the hook up and then break up and cried and yelled and kissed and how they had sex and then they were back together. then they would break up and then get back together. Are you tired yet? Exactly my point right. She could not make up her mind and the time they were together it was sweet while it lasted and then they would start the whole thing again. I was getting tired of the book but I had gone through so much craziness to not find out what it was going to end up like.

I am going to leave at that if you want to read the book read it but I warned you about it. I love a good love story and this one was good but a big roller coaster and I am disappointed at the fighting I could have been OK with out it or a less amount of fight please I hope Walking Disaster is not that much fighting. But I am going to have mentally prepare my self to read the second book I don’t think I am going to read it right after this one I need a break but I will say I am such a curious person that I wan to find out what’s going to happen after their little run to Las Vegas and got married with out her best friend their to be by her side.
