Alright, if you haven’t yet heard about the book Fifty Shades of Grey, you just might be in the minority. Fifty Shades of Grey is a new book to
not yet hit bookstores. And you can only buy this erotic novel, frequently described at “mommy porn,” if you own an iPad, Kindle, Kobo, Nook, e-reader. The hard copy is coming out in April.
Ladies, this book is hot. REALLY hot. And I’m not embarrassed to say that I put down an incredible memoir to be taken away by Fifty Shades of Grey. Hell, I don’t even read fiction, but I had to see what all the hype was about. Well, I had NO idea what I was in for. I am halfway through, and I’m HOOKED. Smitten. I find myself sneaking moments to read whenever I can– hockey practice, carpool lineup. The buzz is everywhere. Conversation flowing amongst all the yummy mummies I meet. Women telling me their whole bodies “tingle” when they read this book. Or that they just wanna go home and f— their husbands. We discussed it at my girl’s dinner this week and we talked about it while I served hot lunch at school yesterday. But I will tell you, I have rediscovered my husband again because of this book. I kid you not. It has done wonders to our marriage. Let’s just say, my husband has never been so thrilled to see me reading.
I don’t do book reviews on this site. It’s not the feel around here. But I will give you a little background. The protagonist is 27 year-old, sexy, uber-controlled, self-made billionaire, Christian Grey, who also also happens to have a major fetish for domination and S&M behind closed doors. The other main character is 22 year-old college girl, innocent, virginal, submissive, Anastasia Steele, who gets swept off her feet and into the bedroom in sexcapades that are beyond smoking.
