Mags and I met Lauren at our very first EL James book signing and since then seem to run into her at every other book even we go to in NYC. She runs a book blog too so she has lots of book recommendations if you follow her, she recently doubled my “to read” list!
What is your name? Lauren Rosa
Where are you from? New York Freaking City
How did you come to read Fifty Shades of Grey?
I read it back in the day when it was a FanFiction story during the Twilight craze. I sat patiently every week waiting for updates on the story. Then when I found out it was being published, I totally got everyone to start
Did you read an actual book or an ebook?
Which is your favorite book in the series?
I love Fifty Shades Darker. It’s when Grey finally lets Ana in.
What is your favorite scene in the series?
When Christian Grey breaks down and tells Ana that he loves her & that she controls him not him her. Totally had me swooning!
“You can’t go. Ana, I love you!”
“I love you, too, Christian, it’s just—”
“No . . . no!” he says in desperation and puts both hands on his head. “Christian . . .”
“No,” he breathes, his eyes wide with panic, and suddenly he drops to his knees in front of me, head bowed, long-fingered hands spread out on his thighs. He takes a deep breath and doesn’t move. What?
“Christian, what are you doing?”
He continues to stare down, not looking at me.
“Christian! What are you doing?”
My voice is high-pitched. He doesn’t move.
“Christian, look at me!” I command in panic. His head sweeps up without hesitation, and he regards me passively with his cool gray gaze—he’s almost serene . . . expectant.
Holy Fuck . . . Christian. The submissive.”
How many times have you read the series?
7 times each.
Outside of Fifty Shades of Grey, what is your favorite book, series or author?
I love Olivia Cunnings Backstage Sinners Series! Hot rockers and their fun escapades!
If you were to meet E L James today, what 2 questions would you ask her?
1st: What question always gets asked in interviews that you are tired of answering?
2nd: Is there any item on your bucket list that you have not done yet & what is it?
Have you had any unique experiences because of your love of Fifty Shades of Grey?
I’ve met some fabulous readers and authors I would have never met if it wasn’t for her books bringing us together.
What scene are you most looking forward to in Fifty Shades of Grey The Movie?
The “Nice to know” you scene! That is one of my favorite in the 1st book! Yes I squealed when I saw the bit of it in the new trailer released last week!
