I just finished reading Darker (actually finished it the day it released….not gonna lie). Needed a couple of days to recover and settle into writing this. When I first read FSOG, it brought me into the contemporary romance world, before that I stuck with historical romance.
This is the re-telling of Fifty Shades Darker from Christian Grey’s POV. As much as I loved the book from Anastasia’s point of view, this book retelling by Christian really stuck with me. The inner dialogue that he has with himself is so raw and gritty. I loved it. The inner turmoil he has with being good enough for Anastasia and the fear he has of telling her about his demons and what he feels drive him. His interaction with Mrs. Robinson, I wished he had pushed her away sooner and harder, but if you read Fifty Shades Darker, you essentially know what happens. With this second book, we see Christian opening up more to Anastasia and he struggles with his feelings of abandonment and being deserving of love and loving in return. Not gonna lie here, I liked these retellings from Christian’s point of view better than I liked the originals. I cannot wait to see what Ms. James has in store with the final retelling of the final book in the FSOG trilogy.
