Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James

Fifty Shades of Grey

E L James

Inspired by the Twilight Saga series, this novel introduces our hapless heroine - a virginal college student - to the irresistible and wealthy Christian Grey. So far, so predictable, in the 'Pretty Woman' genre of erotic fiction. Next, throw in some explicit sadomasochism. If sexual fantasies of male domination and female submission turn you on, indulge your 'inner goddess' with the guilty fun of risk-free naughtiness between these pages.

Extract

'Have you done that before?'
'No.' And I can't help the small tinge of pride in my denial.
'Good,' he says complacently and, I think, relieved. 'Yet another first, Miss Steele.' He looks appraisingly at me. 'Well, you get an A in oral skills. Come, let's go to bed, I owe you an orgasm.'
Orgasm! Another one!
Quickly, he clambers out of the bath, giving me my first full glimpse of the Adonis, divinely formed, that is Christian Grey. My inner goddess has stopped dancing and is staring, too, open-mouthed and drooling slightly. His erection tamed but still substantial ... wow.
