And to be honest, Grey is giving our husbands a run for their money. I mean when you think about it...I don't think it really comes down to the "dirty" stuff. I think what it comes down to is women want to feel like their husbands cherish them. Jenny from TheSuburbanJungle.com said they want to know their husbands still love them and think they're beautiful even if they've been together one year or twenty years. It's about the spark. We want a man who can't keep his eyes off of us, makes sure we're safe and well-fed, blissfully happy, and sporting the latest fashions. You know the man who's unbelievably dark, handsome, and mysterious (think Christian Bale) with Mark Zuckerberg's bank account. Quite frankly, I've been wasting my nights away reading these books and getting a little short-tempered with my husband because I feel he's not meeting up to the standard that Grey has set in my mind. I had to take a step back and think Christian Grey doesn't exist; he's a figment of my imagination. He's not a real person. ha!
I would recommend these books if you're looking for a little guilty pleasure reading :) and if you're not looking for some kind of profound, enlightening writing.
Move over, Mr. Darcy. There's a new man in town, Grey. Christian Grey...
