Entwined with You by Sylvia Day

Gideon Geoffrey Cross is hotter, sexier, and more intense in Sylvia Day's Entwined with You, the third installment in her red-hot, bestselling Crossfire Series. The first two books in this spectacular series are Bared to You and Reflected in You and you can read my reviews for each of those books here and here. I thought I loved literary Alpha males before, but I didn't know what love was until I discovered Gideon Cross. People have book boyfriends. Well, Gideon Cross is my book husband!

In Entwined with You, we continue the enthralling, passionate, draining journey that is Gideon and Eva's powerful love and their attempts to escape the demons of their pasts and be together. This book is like the afterglow of amazing sex: it's euphoria. Entwined with You is the calm after the storm, but it also slowly builds tension and suspense for what is guaranteed to be an explosive climax in the next book in the series.

Director Sam Taylor-Johnson

Yesterday was Christian Grey's birthday, but today Fifty Shades fans around the world are celebrating another special occasion – we finally have a director! E L James made the announcement on Twitter earlier today.

Universal Pictures and Focus Features have chosen British director Sam Taylor-Johnson to helm the film adaptation of James' bestselling novel Fifty Shades of Grey. Even though many observers felt a female director would be ideal (yes, Sam is a woman!) the choice of 46-year old Taylor-Johnson is still surprising, given the high profile of the project and her limited number of credits. She only has one feature film directing credit to her name – 2009's Nowhere Boy, a chronicle of John Lennon's early years. The film garnered the rookie director a pair of BAFTA nominations and was well received by critics. Formerly Sam Taylor-Wood, the director married the star of the film, 23-year-old British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

Big Things in Small Packages by Ruffles & Restraints

Our favourite fictional boyfriend turns the big 3-0 today! Lucky for us, our friend Victoria from Ruffles & Restraints has created a couple fabulous illustrations that mark the special date. This first illo titled "Big Things in Small Packages" depicts the scene in Fifty Shades Darker when Ana finally gives Christian her answer to his marriage proposal. Love it! As if Ana really needed that long to think about it, right? I will say this, that was a fantastic idea for a birthday present for the man who has (or can buy) just about everything. Don't you agree? You can find Victoria's most recent birthday illustration titled "Snack Attack" below.

Now for an extra special birthday treat! The bestselling author of the Fifty Shades Trilogy, E L James, has shared with her fans a never before seen outtake that she "wrote back in the day" for a friend. You can read it here or check it out on Ms. James' personal blog. Enjoy!

Greetings from Fifty!

British retailer Marks & Spencer is now carrying a line of greeting cards inspired by some of the most iconic quotes and images from the bestselling book Fifty Shades of Grey. Okay, so there may only be eight different cards – not fifty as the title of this post might suggest (sorry, I couldn't resist!) – but that's still plenty to choose from and share with your friends and family.
