Review of Grey (Fifty Shades #4) by E.L. James

See the world of Fifty Shades of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey.

In Christian's own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world.

Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty—until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him—past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart.  

Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

**This book is intended for mature audiences.**

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

If you are into Fifty Shades of Grey, you will love Grey. In this phenomenal book, author E. L. James opens up the mind of Christian Grey.  It is insightful and highlights situations and thought processes from the previous books that I had questions about as a reader! How did Christian feel about what had happened in his past? What was happening in the present?  This book fills in the blanks and expands on the missing pieces that make the story MORE.

Christian and Ana’s love story unfolds from his perspective.  Also the reader is given an in-depth look at his relationships and feelings for others around him.  Where before it seemed he was heartless, this shows what he was really thinking and feeling.  After reading this book, I went back and reread Ana’s viewpoint in book one.  Wow, what a difference, I cannot wait to read the next installment! 

Hero: Christian Grey 4.5 stars 
Heroine: Anastasia Steele 4.5 stars 
Steam: 4.5 stars 
Plot: 4.5 stars
