To those of you who ever wondered what goes on inside the head of rich businessman and S&M fanatic Christian Grey, E.L. James has heard your prayers.

"Hello all. For those of you who have asked, Christian's POV of #FSOG is published on 18th June for his birthday. It's called GREY... I hope you enjoy it," E. L. announced on Instagram.

Grey follows a storyline similar to the Fifty Shades trilogy, but will be told from Christian's point of view. Yes, this means that you'll find out what he is thinking every time he stares at Anastasia or, er, gets it going with her.

(Are we the only ones whose spines are shrinking right now?)

"This book is dedicated to those readers who asked...and asked...and asked...and asked for this," E. L. said in a press release. "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 back of the book, as seen on James's website, reads: "Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty – until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him – past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle into Christian's cold, wounded heart.

"Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?"

It's just too bad Fifty Shades is banned in Malaysia.
