[Book Review] 50 Shades of Pink

50 Shades of Pink / K. T. Grant

K. T. Grant gives a condensed lesbian spin on 50 Shades of Grey, with youthful Lindsay Pinke snared in the mechanizations of Colette Durate in her pursuit of Victoria Nox.  Colette has a past with Victoria, one that she relishes and wishes to regain, and one that Victoria has long kept locked away.

Having read 50 Shades of Grey, I expected the plot to work a little different, at first thinking that Colette was the Christian Grey analog.  Grant has taken some of the characters and in effect combined them.  Rather than Leila Williams, Elena Lincoln, and even Jack Hyde, we have the single character of Colette Durate.  The relationship between Victoria and Lindsay develops through a combination of lust, attraction, and uncertainty with the expected missteps and misunderstandings, but without emotional abuse of each other.  Decent characterization, and good re-imaging of key moments and plot points of the material it draws from.
