Yes, you've read correctly. E.L. James announced that she is coming out with a sequel to the trilogy, all from Christian Grey's point of view titled, "Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian."

James's reason for the new book is because "Christian is a complex character, and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past.

Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story."

The "Fifty Shades of Grey" Trilogy is one of the highest grossing book franchise. It even beat out J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" series.

It even out sold the "Twilight" series, the "Grey Trilogy" is based off of. The movie based off the books made $94 million in four days and broke records in the oversea box office.

Which is surprising considering the Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan couldn't stand each other. So what author wouldn't want to cash in while still relevant?

Doesn't that sound familiar? If any one remembers, after the success of the movies, Stephanie Meyer tried to "Midnight Sun," a book from leading man, Edward Cullen's, point of view. That never happened though, because the first few chapters were leaked online and, upset, Meyer decided not to go through with the book.

Maybe somebody will leak E.L. James' new book and she'll again follow Meyer and stop writing.

The book, "Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian," comes out on June 18.
