The highly anticipated film adaptation of E.L. James’ erotic novel, “Fifty Shades of Grey” is almost here. The film, which smartly hits theaters on February 14, stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, and is sure to be a box-office blow out. With advanced ticket sales, and enough “submissive special” merchandise to make your head spin, the story which has been dubbed “mommy porn” is most certainly central to this year’s Valentine’s Day. If you partner is a fan of the series, but you haven’t yet committed to purchasing their Valentine’s Day gift from Target’s new “Fifty Shades of Grey” Official Sensual Care Collection, maybe go for something that is little more low-key. Bondage may come naturally to Christian Grey, but you are just looking for a little romance! We have collected 20 sexy quotes from James’ novel for you to include in your partner’s Valentine’s Day card, text message or email, to add just a bit of passion to your holiday, without feeling like you need to take a shower.

“You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.”

“See how good we are together," he murmurs. "If you give yourself to me, it will be so much better. Trust me, Anastasia, I can take you places you don't even know exist.”

“Never trust a man who can dance.”

“There's a very fine line between pleasure and pain. They are two sides of the same coin, one not existing without the other.”

“I'd like to bite that lip.”

“He grabs me suddenly and yanks me up against him, one hand at my back holding me to him and the other fisting in my hair.” You're one challenging woman," He kisses me, forcing my lips apart with his tongue, taking no prisoners.

“I still want more," I whisper. "I know," he says. "I'll try." I blink up at him, and he relinquishes my hand and pulls at my chin, releasing my trapped lip. "For you, Anastasia, I will try.”

“You are one brave woman," he whispers, "I am in awe of you.” 

“And in this quiet moment, as I close my eyes, spent and sated, I think I'm in the eye of the storm. And in spite of all he's said and what he hasn't said, I don't think I have ever been so happy.”

“Of course. Silly me. Such a sad, exciting score, which no doubt you can play? So many accomplishments, Mr. Grey.” “And the greatest one is you, Miss Steele.”

“What happened to her?” “We finished.” “Why?” “She wanted more.” “And you didn’t?” He shakes his head. “I’ve never wanted more, until I met you.”

“Hmm... you and I, we're giving each other many firsts.” 

“Why does he have such an unnerving effect on me? His over-whelming good looks maybe? The way his eyes blaze at me? The way he strokes his index finger against his lower lip? I wish he'd stop doing that.”

“I ignore the unwelcome stab of disappointment. Why do I want to spend every single minute with this controlling sex god? Oh yes, I've fallen in love with him, and he can fly.”

“I want my world to start and end with you.”

“Anastasia, I’m not a hearts and flowers kind of man, I don’t do romance. My tastes are very singular. You should steer clear of me.” He closes his eyes as if in defeat. “There’s something about you, though, and I’m finding it impossible to stay away. But I think you’ve figured that out already.”

“Laters, baby.” 

“You've brushed your teeth," He says, staring at me. "I used your toothbrush." His lips quirk up in a half smile. "Oh Anastasia Steele, what am I going to do with you?”

“There is something about Christian that is old-fashioned and romantic.” 

“I think I've kissed a prince, Mom. I hope he doesn't turn into a frog.”
