Grey is the type of woman that likes to treat her lover. Little surprises where he wouldn't have guessed, eager to please. Grey, being a beer lover, a woman with a sexuality that is "raw power", an air of "predatory, bestial, almost dangerous and so utterly feminine all at the same time", it's no wonder she turns heads in hotel bars.
The ever-present moments in the hotel room extend beyond the pages (or screen, whatever your reading pleasure is). Try and deny that you feel their heat.
Slow, sensual show of herself, unzipping until the point of bursting, Grey knows how to make a relish what is in front of him. My favorite scene is a romantic interlude, before Grey girl and her lover go out on the town. They take a sweet shower together, and Grey enjoys it, with "eyes closed, [she] was suspended in the mixture of elements - fire and water curtaining her entire body." You know in that moment their affair touches on an emotional level.
A bit more along the lines of the romantic readings of yore, "Fade to Grey" adheres to that. Grey and her lover want to please each other. Their touches, the imagery the pair conjures up for the reader, and their sweet exchanges are almost tender. But not without their unending passion, of course.
