Fifty Shades Darker: Book Two - erotic fiction by Entrenue - review by bedorerc

More of the first book.

This book moved fast, had lots of sex, and was overall fun to read. It could have been better, but was nice, light reading.
If you liked the first you will like this one.
Still writting problems and other annoying things from the first.

The second book in this series is more of the first book. In it the characters are they same, the writing is just as bad, and the sex is the same. There is no improvement, but it also doesn't get any worse. The book starts off right after the first book ends. There is no explanation of who is who, or events that happened before. This is both good and bad. It is good because the author can be very fixated on minor things, and if she did recap what happened in the first book it would probably take several chapters. It is bad because if you haven't read the first book recently you may have a hard time knowing what is going on. If you haven't read the first book at all, you will be very lost.

The conflict in this book is less focused on the differences between the main characters and more on things outside of their relationship. The characters start off separated, but are back together, with almost no resolution to why they separated, in the first chapter. This continues, for the most part, through the whole book. It's like the author had created all of his bad boy things (likes to hurt her, control freak, all the secrets) to draw people in, but doesn't know how to reform him into someone readers want to be with long term. Since she doesn't know how to do it, she just brushes it away because it doesn't fit into the story she wants anymore.

The outside conflict does keep the book moving forward, even when the relationship is at a stand still. There is a boss who is overly interested in Ana, a crazy ex-sub, and a helicopter crash. There is no connection made between the events. It is like all of these bad things happen independently, but they just happen to take place at the same time. Nonetheless, the author does make good use of this and move the relationship forward.
