Title : Fifty Shades Darker
Series : Fifty Shades #2
Author : E. L. James
Genre : Contemporary and Erotica Romance

Daunted by the singular sexual tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. 

But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades. 

While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life
Actually, I want to give two hearts for the first half book because of Christian. But the other half won it all. Okay, let me start with the first half.

After 3 days Ana left him (only 3 days! Not even a week or a month!), Chris chase after her. Begged her to stay with him and he promised that he would be changed. C did anything to get A back such as flowers, buy Jose's photos of Ana, etc.

Okay, even I thought what C did were sweet and if I were A, I will accept him, and that's what A did. Butttttt... Mrs. Robinson a.k.a Elena (C's Dom when he was a child) who made A jealous. Who will not jealous if a man we love still had a relationship with another woman from the past (although C didn't do anything, just a business partner)? And C brought A to a salon where Elena is the owner. C, you're a moron!! Arghhhhh..

Next, there was a woman, C's ex-Sub, Leila. She intended to kill A. C was panic and tried to protect A, then Leila succeeded to invade C's room. When C saw Leila, he asked (or evicted?) A due to her safety. Well, A felt betrayed and she wanted to leave C (again). But C (again!) begged her not to go and he kneel down to propose! Proposed! A man, like C, a dominant, rich, megalomaniac (as what A said), asked her to marry him.

Wait, don't be happy, A turned down the proposal. Yet C was not giving up, he seduced her, again, again, and again. A finally said that she need time and C MUST give it to her.
What I hate from the first half is C was such a moron! How could he did that to A about Elena and Leila?

Now, the other half book....
There is a man, A's boss who attracted to A. Of course, C hate him and C discharged Jack because Jack did something unappropriated to A. There are also several man, Ethan and Jose, who made C want to mark his territorial around A. Hahahahahaha...

I also really love about C and A's chit-chat via email. If only there was such a man who cares a woman like that.

A finally accept C's proposal and the presents also the making love after that were sweet (hot of course!).
"You wanted hearts and flowers ?You have my heart,and here are the flowers....."
I'm melted away.... Oh, C~

I closed this book with sigh. Can't wait to read the last book of this trilogy.
Fifty Shades series:

  1. bagus ya yg keduanya, mbak?
    uhm...yg pertamanya sih aku kasi 1 bintang. Penasarn baca yg kedua jadinya >.<

  2. Seru ih kayaknya... mana covernya keren.
    Tapi kudu baca yg buku pertama dulu sih ini

  3. Hi, akhirnya keluar review buku ke-2..
    aku jg lebih suka yang buku ke-2 ini (ga tau knapa). in this book I felt more involve emotionally. walo kadang2 sikap Chris dan Ana bikin aku ingin lempar spatu. I mean seriously, still maintain relationship (even it was just business) with his *pedophile* ex-lover, geez unbelievable.

    btw, aku stuju buku ini menarik. aga ragu untuk bilang bagus, karena masih lebih banyak buku dengan genre yg sama yg jauh lebih bagus - kalo kamu suka tipe begini coba deh baca Bared To You- Sylvia Day. Mirip dengan 50, but IMO much much better. buku ini menarik karena booming dan jadi populer di masyarakat (in US), bikin orang yg ga tau tentang bdsm jadi tau, bikin yang taboo jadi diperbincangkan.

    hehe sori jadi ngoceh,,

    ditunggu opini buku ke-3nya.

    1. Bener, emosinya jauh lebih terlibat dibanding buku 1, much better than before.

      Sebenernya aku gak terlalu gmn banget dengan cerita seperti ini. Karena penasaran aja ama orang-orang yang sedang ramai membicarakannya. Yah, overall not bad lah untuk awal mula baca buku BDSM. Hahahahaha..

      Sylvia Day ya? Ntar aku cari deh, smoga bisa ketemu =P Thanks buat sarannya ^^
