"He's staring into my eyes, and I hold his anxious, burning gaze for a moment or maybe it's forever...but eventually, my attention is drawn to his beautiful mouth. Oh my. And for the first time in 21 years, I want to be kissed. I want to feel his mouth on me. - Fifty Shades of Grey
Explicit, yes. However, the character development prevented me from putting these down. You will certainly find yourself skimming over the 'explicit' just to get on with the story to try and understand this couple. It's been a fun read, better if you have a friend to talk to about it because it's hard to explain why it is addictive until you pick it up for yourself.
