Swoon Thursday: Fifty Shades of Grey

Swoon Thursday #1!
Swoon Thursday

Swoon Thursday is a HOT meme hosted by YA Bound.

From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished,
tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your
skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.

Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in
the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on
your blog! We want to know :)

This is my first ever Swoon Thursday! It seems like a really great and fun idea! On with the book! It just so happens that when something really epic happens, or something a character says that makes me feel a certain way -- I always take a screenshot (I mostly read e-books.) I'm actually on the third and final book in this trilogy, but this was the first thing in this series that made me SWOON!

The book is Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. Also, these books have a lot of "sexy times" just in case you didn't already know. However, I picked a clean scene! I remember thinking "OMG, he has so much power and authority! Ooooooo!" He's so strong and handsome and rich and powerful (yes, I said it twice) and the list can go on forever! I instantly fell in love with Christian Grey! Onto the swooning!

Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James
Goodreads -- Amazon

Christian Grey is asking me on a date. He's asking
if you want a coffee. Maybe he thinks you haven't
woken up yet,
my subconscious whines at me in
a sneering mood again. I clear my throat, try-
ing to control my nerves.
"I have to drive everyone home," I murmur
apologetically, twisting my hands and fingers
in front of me.
"TAYLOR," he calls, making me jump.
Taylor, who had been retreating down the cor-
ridor, turns and heads back toward us.
"Are they based at the university?" Grey
asks, his voice soft and inquiring. I nod, too
stunned to speak.
"Taylor can take them. He's my driver. We
have a large 4x4 here, so he'll be able to take
the equipment, too."
"Mr Grey?" Taylor asks when he reaches
us, giving nothing away.
"Please, can you drive the photographer,
his assistant, and Miss Kavanagh back home?"
"Certainly, sir," Taylor replies.
"There. Now can you join me for coffee?"
Grey smiles as if it's a done deal.

So, tell me, what made you swoon?!

Enjoy your day!

  2. Ooo Christian. I love these books, they are my guilty pleasure because I just never ever get sick of them! Great swoon! He is my swoon


    1. I know! After I read the first one, I just could not stop! I did however stop reading the the last one because I just can't stand the fact that it will be over. So I'm taking a little break from it.
