Fifty Shades of Grey, captivating or over the top?

Fifty Shades

Fifty Shades

Has anyone else out there fallen into a trance over these books? I heard about them from friends, family and even a playgroup mom and figured I had to check them out and see what all the fuss was about. Boy oh boy I understand now!

In general, I usually do not read books that are so wickedly dark or explicit but Fifty Shades of Grey is not only that but also, captivating. Although I have not yet formed a conclusion about the books, I have been finding it hard to put them down because they are so suspenseful.

Currently, I am on book two and find it better than the first one. I enjoy that it delves deeper into the relationship of the main characters and adds a depth to the plot. I was wondering if anyone else out there had become involved with these books? They are hard to turn away from, or is that just the irony of Anastasia and Mr. Grey?
