Fifty Shades of Grey: Book One of the Fifty Shades Trilogy

James has written the "Shades of Gray" trilogy.It is a trilogy based on a simple premise: an author receives and assignment to interview a billionaire entrepreneur. That seems like a simple enough assignment but it is far more than that.Working closely with the subject of her interview, Christian Gray, Anastasia Steele, a person who is very innocent in the ways of the world and the ways of love, finds herself wanting Gray more and more.Gray, acting aloof, finally admits that he, too, wants Ana and they begin a physical affair where Gray's addiction to an individual style of sexual encounter may seem to some like a giant step backward in the writing world.

However, when you stick the name Bill O'Reilly on the book, it suddenly develops "gravitas," as people recognize him. O'Reilly is already an accomplished author and hos...
