Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. This book chronicles the fascinating life of Chiyo, who is sold to a geisha house, where she later becomes the star geisha, Sayuri. Excellent read and although not as good the movie was well worth seeing
Books similar to Fifty Shades of Grey. I would read Collide Series after Crossfire. I like that besides "This Man Series" there really isn't much bdsm if any. Haven't read the Stark Trilogy yet.May have to add that to my list.
