Whatever your opinion of her books, she’s one clever lady

One man has sparked a million fantasies this summer.

No, it’s not Wayne Rooney and his new thatch. The handsome hunk in question is Christian Grey, the wealthy but troubled character in the Fifty Shades trilogy.

I read the three novels in a week. Like my girlfriends, I simply haven’t been able to put them down.

It seems we ladies love a good old-fashioned Mills and Boon romance with a touch of the naughty stuff (roughly every eight pages) thrown in.

The books are pure Marmite. You’ll either love them or hate them. There’s no middle ground.

Personally, I can’t get enough of this sort of stuff (not sure what that says about me). I know one thing though. Author E L James is one clever lady.
