MareReads: 50 Shades of Grey

I finally succumbed to the hype and read 50 Shades of Grey.  I have no idea how to write this review and not make it rated R.  Restricted with a capital R.  I feel like it should come with a warning and you should almost have to show I.D. before buying it!  It's always front and centre in the book store and I wonder how many teens are picking it up thinking it's like Twilight or The Hunger Games series.
Heck no.
It's the story of a student who falls for a very successful businessman.  Hmmm what else can I tell you? They have quite the erotic romp, to put it very mildly.  
Ok, let's get serious.  This book is basically lady-porn.  I said it.  It's light on plot, character development and story, yet heavy on the steam.  I thought the book was going to focus more on the relationship between the two main characters but it's more adult-movie-esque in that it there's not a lot of substance between sex scenes. 
That being said, it's entertaining!  Almost every woman I've asked about this book raves about it and says they couldn't put down the trilogy.  If you want to read it, expect a lot steam and not a lot of substance.  Coming from a chick-lit lover, that's ok;)
And expect to make this face if you have to bring it in to work to discuss it:
