Set largely in Seattle, a trilogy that traces the deepening relationship between a college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a young business magnate, Christian Grey.

Grey’s dungeon, decorated throughout in polar bear and tiger skins. Ana is nailed to a crucifix. Grey thrashes her with a snakeskin riding crop. She cries out with pleasure as they climax eight times.
Ana: Oh my God. You’re the best, Christian. You know … I think I might be falling in love with you.
