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 searing 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.
Love is never easy or quite what you expect it to be. When we left off at the end of Fifty Shades of Grey Ana had begun to realize this and her relationship with Christian was on the rocks so to speak. The chance she takes on him allows her to begin in this book to know what Christians life was like and what in his past made him the way he is. I think the title of the book paved the way for me to know that yes in fact we are heading into the dark. Aside from the lives of Ana and Christian this time around we are introduced to a woman from Christians past, Leila. Unfortunately Leila isn't walking around with the best intentions towards Christian and Ana and we turn from a tale with love and romance and sizzling passion to a bit of a scare. There is also another force that we aren't quite aware of adding to the game. What a tangled web we weave describes all the pieces I found in this book. I continue to love Christian Grey and his relationship with Ana.
