Fifty Shades of Grey
Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This book was terrible. The only sensible thing she did was at the end…..

This book is not a very good showing of a “romantic” or even “healthy” relationship. Not in the non BDSM world and DEFINITELY NOT in the BDSM world. This book was heavily triggering for me as I had a prior relationship that was very abuse driven as this series is. She obviously doesn’t enjoy any of the kinky stuff he does (well nothing that causes her pain that he enjoys) and can’t make informed consent about whether or not she wants to even be in the relationship. Not to mention how many times he ignores her wishes and violates her consent. And the 3 times he rapes her and the first time being also breaking in so he can “show her” just what she’ll be missing because she jokingly broke up with him via email. Seriously. WHO DOES THAT?

This book made me want to throw up because it is apparently the “ideal” relationship now. There is not enough “no”‘s in the world for me to begin to express how much this shouldn’t be the case.
