Their scorching, sensual affair ended in heartbreak and recrimination, but Christian Grey cannot get Anastasia Steele out of his mind, or his blood. Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control, and to love Ana on her own terms. But the horrors of his childhood still haunt him, and Ana’s scheming boss, Jack Hyde, clearly wants her for himself. Can Christian’s confidant and therapist, Dr. Flynn, help him face down his demons? Or will the possessiveness of Elena, his seducer, and the deranged devotion of Leila, his former submissive, drag Christian down into the past? And if Christian does win Ana back, can a man so dark and damaged ever hope to keep her?

Darker is the second book of Fifty Shades Of Grey in Christian’s POV. It starts with the aftermath from the first book. You’d think I’d find Christian and Ana more annoying as the last time I read this but I didn’t. I actually found it kinda sweet that Christian was so jealous of Jose.

I have mixed feelings about Grace since she thought Ana was a gold dicker when nothing Ana did gave her that idea. But I do understand that Elena was whispering things to her ear and she was worried about her son. I absolutely love the scene when she accidentally heard what she did in Christian’s birthday party.

Christian is such an alpha male that it was starting to get annoying how often he was worried that Ana was going to leave him again. It’s sad how he thought that his family wouldn’t be worried about him after what happened to him.

I had the most problems with Kate. She was in a holiday for like 99% of the book and then she went through her friend’s boyfriend jacket. Who does that?? Then she was like “I’m sorry. I don’t mean to intrude.” If you don’t mean to intrude don’t go over stuff that doesn’t belong to you.
