Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Young, arrogant tycoon Earl Grey seduces the naive 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?

Review:

"Erotica is hard....Comedy is harder. If anyone can pull this off, it's Andrew Shaffer." Paul Bogaards in the New York Times

Review:

"[Fanny Merkin is] the Weird Al of erotica." Diana Rodriguez Wallach, author of Adios to All the Drama

Review:

"It had to happen: a parody of the bestselling 50 Shades of Grey. And who better to pull it off than author Andrew Shaffer." PW Show Daily

Review:

"Laugh out loud....If you are looking for a funny book to share with friends, look no further....If Austin Powers and Ace Ventura had a love child, it would be Earl Grey." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[Shaffer] skewers both E. L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey and Stephanie Meyer's Twilight in his debut novel." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Shaffer persuades his readers to notice the flaws in our current society. He challenges us to question who we are idolizing and what the effects of such adoration could be....Shaffer's writing is fast-paced, fresh, and entertaining....[It] will have you giggling until the conclusion." Blogcritics.org

Review:

"There is SO MUCH FUNNY!...Folks who read Fifty Shades will recognize that Shaffer's plot loosely follows the same plot that dragged Ana and Christian along, but there's still plenty of fun to be had here if you haven't read that awful novel." Bookriot.com

Synopsis:

A shrewd, laugh-out-loud parody of E. L. James's bestselling Fifty Shades series.
