    My wife was reading the Anne Rice "Sleeping Beauty" series when we met. It's a bit risque compared to most of her other work. I think she even used a pen name for that one.

    I am on book 2 and can't put it down! I forgot to take it with me on the honeymoon but it would have been helpful to take me think :-D

    I saw a lot of women reading it on the beach though.

    Have read all 3...yes it is trashy, I also do not see a really good story line, other than, rich dominant male meets sweet virgin girl....all hell breaks loose and the rest is money making history !!!! Do not really think it needs to be made into a movie or miniseries, only because I do not know how they would do the story without making it x-rated. And I think you would have to have porn stars play the parts......
    Every woman I know has either read it or is reading it.......amazing !!!!!!

    Anne Rice's Sleeping Beauty trilogy was written under her pen name of A. N. Roquelaure and was very dominating and sado-masochistic (actually the 50 Shades trilogy is mild in comparison).

    what I find amazing about Ann Rice is how you can go from writing s&m, vampire and witch novels....and of course they all were erotic as well (v&w books) to finding faith (which I am surprised she did not have before) and now writing books about Christ.
    Not that I have any objection to it, but I tried reading her new books but to no avail.....

    so had to switch to poorly written but keeps you reading books.......

    For lack of a better word, I have no "desire" to read it.

    what to read after fifty shades of grey

    Anything by Nora Roberts is guaranteed to be good. Right now I'm reading His Every Desire by Emma Rose and it's worth a read as well (though it is a bit...descriptive like fifty shades of grey).
