Christian Grey exercises control in all things – until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office. 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, Ana seems to see right through him – past the business prodigy to Christian’s cold, wounded heart. Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt him? Or will his dark sexual desires drive Ana away? 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.
