About the Author
After twenty-five years working in TV, E L James decided to pursue her childhood dream, and set out to write stories that readers would fall in love with. The result was the sensuous romance Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, a trilogy that went on to sell more than 150 million copies worldwide in 52 languages. In 2015 she published the best seller Grey, the story of Fifty Shades of Grey from the perspective of Christian Grey.
In 2012, E L James was named one of Time magazine’s “Most Influential People in the World,” one of Barbara Walters’s “Ten Most Fascinating People of the Year,” and Publishers Weekly’s “Person of the Year.” She went on to work as a producer on the film adaptations of her trilogy for Universal Pictures; Fifty Shades of Grey, the film, broke box-office records all over the world in 2015. Its 2017 sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, proved equally popular with fans of Ana and Christian’s story, and the concluding film, Fifty Shades Freed, will be released in 2018.
E L James lives with her husband, the novelist and screenwriter Niall Leonard, their two sons, and their two dogs in West London, where she is working on new novels and movie projects.

Do you realize how difficult it is for James to come up with stuff? She had to mirror Ana's POV and dialogue otherwise we'd have a different story. She was so generous to gift us with all of this because many of us loved this couple so much and always will. Be grateful people.
Now, my opinion and I was not gifted a copy nor am I a friend of James' however, I love Christian after this read more so now than ever. He is so vulnerable in Darker, so lovable, so intelligent yet immature in other areas like a scared little boy. As a mother of five sons, James' words when Christian admits to himself wanting Grace his adoptive mother to hold him and when he realizes she really does love him, just beautiful and heartfelt as a mother of 5 sons. These are not womens words as someone wrote in there 1 or 2* review, claiming he sounds like a woman, this is a man's perspective and yes they do feel too, just because they're not all so emotional or forthcoming with their feelings or thoughts doesn't mean they don't have them and that some men or boys don't express them. Christian went through a lot as a child from birth to four, then through 15 years old he was angry, didn't speak for sometime after the adoption until Mia came into their home, let's not forget the brawls and being expelled from schools... Elena not only lures him into sex but she physically abuses him as well. His thoughts are not going to be of the normal man because let's face it, a normal man would not have been through what he has. Take him out of that category and please stop judging James so harshly. I, for one, am so grateful that she's gifted us with MORE, I hope it keeps coming. I'd love another book with their future including all of their children and Elliot and Kate's but I doubt we'll get it because, truthfully, writing what James does is not an easy trade.
$10 for the Kindle download, sorry but IMO it's worth it. I knew going in what we were getting...did you not read Grey? Same thing. I. Loved. It!!! All of the conversations I wondered about James gave us his words and thoughts. I especially love the words with Grace and Elena, I seriously would love to kick Elena's butt!!! If one of my friend's did that to one of my sons?! I won't even go there.
I have to say it.. Again, massacred the movie Darker... Christian was so watered down.. ugh. and the first scene, going to the Gallery... dang it, it was perfect and made sense the way it was written in the book.
This would have been a GREAT miniseries too .. :-)
and 'submissive Christian' from his POV.
Was surprised by a few of the sideline stories...like broadening out Andrea's story. (I won't spoil it for those who haven't read it yet. But it was fun to get more background on her character.)
My only complaint: If an author, and in this case, her editor(s), are supposed to be professionals, and get paid a boat load of money, they should probably know their product a little better. I mean, was it just me, or did the fact that Ana took her 'potential sub' dossier with her in her version of the book changed to her leaving it behind and Christian re-filing it in his cabinet in his version of the book bother anyone else?. (This also happened in 'Fifty Shades Freed....Sawyer drove them home from the hospital after Ana was released, but a few sentences later, Taylor pulls into the garage to drop them off at the elevator.). Those are the errors I've caught so far. Sorry, but I'm a stickler for consistency. So it's not a perfect book. Wonder if I'll find more when I re-read. (And I will re-read. I like to do that with books I enjoy.)
Can't wait to read 'Freed' (assuming that will be written and published eventually). Then maybe we can get the series from Taylor's POV! That'd be fun!
