Books Like 50 Shades
The New York Times Best Selling series “50 Shades of Grey” has made the romance/erotica genre skyrocket and has everyone wanting more books like “Fifty”. I have heard many different things that people liked and disliked about the series. Some people prefer more of a story and others liked the naughtiness so I have composed a list to help out. I have read most of these and have added the publishers’ descriptions along with my personal opinion.
