Fifty Shades of Grey was a great trilogy for those who love romance and want that guy who will love them more than the world. I found myself looking for books similar to Fifty Shades of Grey after I finished the trilogy because I wanted to read more about men like Christian who sweep their heroine’s off of their feet.
The first book that was recommended that I read was called:
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I had high hopes for this book as many people thought that Travis (the hero) was as compelling as Christian Grey was. While Travis was no Fifty, he was a somewhat compelling character. However, the relationship between he and Abby (Pigeon) was not the same as that between Fifty and Ana.
The love story in Beautiful Disaster annoyed me. I was annoyed by both Abby and Travis and wished that they could just get it together already. Also some of the storyline had me laughing out loud because it was so dramatic and unrealistic. I also didn’t like that everyone seemed to be okay with how much violence Travis inflicted on people. While I had issues with the plot and the characters in the book, I was swept into the story and came to love Travis. I stayed up all night reading just to see what happened. While this is no Fifty Shades of Grey, it is similar enough to the trilogy to make fans happy.
There are other books similar to Fifty Shades of Grey that have been recommended to me that I am going to try out next. They are:
1. Strangers by Barbara Elsborg.
2. Rock Me by Cherrie Lynn.
3. Thoughtless by S.C Stephens.
4. Hearts in Darkness by Laura Kaye.
If you know of any other great books that have a love story like Fifty Shades of Grey, please let me know!
