Fine, fine. We’ll come clean (but only if you sign a non-disclosure agreement). We’re pretty enamored with the erotic tale of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele chronicled in E.L. James’ best-selling novel “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Obviously we’re not the only ones as the trilogy (which also includes “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed”) has sold more than 10 million copies in the U.S. since it went on sale six weeks ago. That’s a whole lot of kinky sex, you guys.
As the series continues to whip its competition at the bookstore, we couldn’t help but ponder a few spin-offs we’d clamor to read. After all, why should Christian and Ana have all the fun? Why not 50 Cent or Sade (whose names are ripe for eye-roll-inducing puns)? So without further ado, please allow us to present our gallery of nine “Fifty Shades of Grey”-inspired novels that should totally happen. (You’re welcome, E.L. And we’ll only take 25 percent.)
