Don't Act Like You Don't Want the Second 'Fifty Shades' Book Told From Christian's Perspective for Christmas
Christian Grey still has a lot to say, guys.
The second Fifty Shades spin-off novel told from Christian Grey's perspective will release this November, which means Christmas is going to be weirder than usual. The book, entitled Darker: Fifty Shades Darker As Told By Christian, will chronicle Christian's innermost thoughts and feelings during the second book in the trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker.
Here's the cover. We flush.
Author E.L. James made the big announcement via Instagram on Tuesday. The book will be available in the U.S. and the UK Nov. 28, 2017 — less than a month before the holidays.
"Hello all. I'm delighted to let you know that Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as told by Christian will be published in the US and UK on 28th November 2017," James wrote. "Other territories to follow. I do hope you enjoy it. Much love."
Sit that delectable derriere down, because we're about to give you a recap of what Anastasia Steele and Christian were up to in the second book.
Ahem. After BDSM aficionado and totally realistic twenty-something gazillionaire Christian goes a little psycho on Ana during sex, he's tasked with winning her back. Naturally that doesn't take long, and a variety of vengeful ne'er-do-wells enter their lives to make matters even more complicated. Also, they sort of find a happy medium sex-wise. Fin.
We flush once more/inner divas tango and whatnot.
