Fifty Shades Darker-- Into the hype.

I'm not going to say it was a waste of time because I truly enjoyed reading it. But I just wish it was written better, and that it wasn't an adaptation of Twilight. I'm glad that I didn't know that until after I enjoyed it.
Good story line, Sex scenes.
Poor writing.

useful review
So my SO, my sister, and Every channel on the television has been talking nonstop about these books, so of course, naturally, I got talked into checking them out. After surviving 50 Shades of Grey, and after taking a break for a few days from Ana and Christian's tortured romance, we cracked open the second book of the trilogy, 50 Shades Darker.

Plot: Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house.

But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades.

While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.

For those of you intrigued by the words "butt plug" or "fisting," half of you will enjoy, because one of those is kind of, sort of, featured in this book. As it is, the only fisting we ever see - ever come close to seeing - is that of Ana's or Christian's hands in the others' hair, and that happens a lot. In this book, they rock the headboard in an elevator, on a boat, in Christian's childhood room, in the shower (again - evidently they enjoy that spot), Ana's apartment bedroom, Christian's apartment bedroom, and - YESS! - the Red Room of Pain. Oh, and on top of a piano and a pool table. There may be more. Did the desk happen in this book, or the previous one? I think they wind up on Christian's desk in this one, too. Is 50 Shades Darker good? No, it is not good. But is it entertaining? Yes. Is it hot? Yes. Is it worth reading? Yes. If you can get past all of the awful writing, it's very enjoyable. I admit that I read it cover to cover, and I look forward to 50 Shades Freed. Do not, however, mistake an enjoyable read for something well written, because this is NOT well written. You know it's bad for you, and you feel dirty and low for enjoying it, but you can't stop.

Of course like any other good book it has a villain a plot and good characters. They say that the book is an adaptation of Twilight. Now, I’m not saying this is right, or wrong, But since I didn’t know about all that drama until after I read this book I never saw the similarities until I thought really hard about them.

To conclude I’d say that over all it’s a good story line and it has potential but needed an editor, BAD. If you can look past that and read it for the story, its actually very good.
Follow-up commentary
I'm gald a book like this was written. Even though there are skeptic people, I still think it did some good for some.

    Those 'taboo' topics, I was kinda sorta looking forward to reading about out of curiosity but was let down. But again, the suspense of the plot is what kept me going. I don't think it was poorly written, just not as adventurous as I was expecting with words and the sex scenes.

    Everywhere I turn someone is saying it was poorly written... I didn't think so but that's just me... Good review tho!

    @Zombirella,@Sweetbekki89 Thanks for reading. I just felt that it was written by a 16 year old girl. She says the same thing over and over. It's not a bad book though.
    @CuddleWhore thanks for reading. @Badass thanks for reading

    I read it when it was still a Twilight fanfiction story. It wasn't bad, but nothing I'd rush out and buy myself. Once you switch the character names to the ones from Twilight you can really start to see the similarities. Thanks for the review
