Young, arrogant tycoon Earl Grey seduces the naïve coed Anna Steal with his overpowering good looks and staggering amounts of money, but will she be able to get past his fifty shames, including shopping at Walmart on Saturdays, bondage with handcuffs, and his love of BDSM (Bards, Dragons, Sorcery, and Magick)? Or will his dark secrets and constant smirking drive her over the edge?
50 Shames of Earl Grey is a silly book. Andrew Shaffer spoofs the very popular 50 Shades of Grey in this book. He doesn't hold back as he makes fun of both Twilight and 50 Shades. Nothing is off limits. I loved how ludicrous Earl Grey and Anna Steal are. Anna is so ridiculously naive it's a wonder she can walk. Earl Grey is overbearing and super sensitive. He's in to BDSM, but in his case it's Bards, Dragons, Sorcery, and Magick. That's a little . . . awkward. This book had some definite laugh out loud moments. If you have a sense of humor you'll enjoy this book.
