Book Club #1!

I'm switching gears today.  I recently started following a new blog and she linked up with this Book Club Friday.  Y'all know I love to read, so this was screaming my name!!

So this week I am going to choose was almost every woman is reading (and panting while doing so..)

The 50 Shades of Grey. - E.L James

The synopsis:
When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

My opinion:
Where do I even start?  Christian Grey is sexy, powerful, and a man who knows what he wants (and how to get it!)  Ana Steele is a bit whiny at times, but under the circumstances I think I'd act pretty much like she did too. 

I will admit at first it took me some time to get into the book.  I even at times wondered IF I would get into it.  It is nothing like anything I normally read.  And as much as that's scared me, it excited me.  Now I cannot seem to get enough. 

Do I recommend?:
Heck yes.  Just be ready to blush, look up strange things on Google, and um, want a Christian Grey moment or two.. ;)
