Slip Into Something a Shade Darker…
This Valentine’s Day, slip into something a shade darker when Fifty Shades Darker opens in theaters! Mom Does Reviews recently hosted a fantastic book club event for all of our friends who needed a Darker refresher! We snacked on Grey cake and a decadent no-bake cheesecake while chatting about the story. When I asked my girlfriends what they remember from the book they replied “Sex! Lots of sex!”
I could hardly keep my cheesecake in my mouth while another friend teased, “I’m sorry, I don’t remember anything outside of the Red Room…”
THAT is precisely what our party was about; to remind us that there was a whole lot more to this story than just sex!…
Get ready for Fifty Shades Darker in theaters February 10!!
What I love about this film is that even if you haven’t read the books or saw Fifty Shades of Grey, you can still enjoy this latest release! Fifty Shades Darker will have you on the edge of your seat wondering if Ana is going to make it — will she survive her battle with the women who came before her? Grab a bottle of wine, something delicious, AND the book get your refresher before the film!
“Look, Anastasia, as I said to her, she’s part of my past.
You are my future. Don’t let her come between us, please.”
Hummm. I wonder which “her” he is referring to… Leila or Elena?
I kiss this beautiful man, who loves me as I love him; and he wraps his arms around me, his hands moving to my hair, his mouth on mine. I know deep down I will always be his, and he will always be mine. We’ve come so far together, we have so far to go, but we are made for each other. We are meant to be. ~ Fifty Shades Darker
