Young and inexperienced Anastasia has learn a lot since she met sexy, gorgeous, dominant, controlling and very troubled Christian. Oh, did I forget, very rich. By the end of the first book, she had asked Christian how far he could go to punish her, in the dominant/submissive roles, and he showed her how far. He lost control, she was hurt more emotionally than physical and left him.
At the start of the second book of the trilogy, Christian realizes that he can not live without her. She dominates his thoughts every minute of the day. She has changed his life for the better and he wants her back. He contacts her and makes a deal, if she comes back he will no longer punish her and he will not do anything that she is not absolutely comfortable with. She, on her side, misses him tremendously and so agrees to come back. She knows that no matter how controlling he can be and how short a temper he can have, he also has a big heart and can be a softy. Along with her new arrangement with Christian, she has also started a new job. She likes the job but not so much the boss as his attitude borders on sexual harrassment. She will have to deal with Christian's ex-girlfriends and their issues. Mrs Robinson, will also be contacting her, wanting to meet with her. She is hoping to discuss Christian and maybe scare her off. Mrs Robinson is the woman that took Christian under her care when he was fifteen and introduced him to the S&M world. The woman who taught him everything, kind of. Christian will introduce her to his whole family. He will also trust her enough to tell her more about his dark side and his early childhood.
The second book of the trilogy is very good and as much a page turner as the first.
