I have to update my first criticism of this book. Since I first read it, I feel this has grown on me. I have read this book 3 times now and I LOVE IT. At first glance it did not have the same affect on me as it did the second time I read them. I can not stop raving about this love story.
Book one captivated me this book bored me. The development of their relationship is great, but it got to a point in the middle where I found myself wondering where the story was going. there were small occurrences but it in actuality it just seemed like a romance novel which revealed the true reason for Christian’s issues. It just seemed to drag to me, but I needed to read this so i could get to the third book. I have higher hopes for the end of this trilogy. I hope the author goes somewhere with this story and that is not just more of the same with them exploring sex like a couple of teenagers. I get it, he does not want to leave, she loves him, really how many times in a novel can this be said over and over?
Take reading this book to a whole new level listening to the soundtrack while reading the book. It has all the song referenced in the book. I wish I had seen this before I finished the book. Fifty Shades Darker Soundtrack
