"Grey" will be published June 18

Bestselling author E.L. James announced Monday via Instagram the release of her latest book, a "Fifty Shades of Grey" novel told from Christian Grey's point of view.

The new book, entitled, "Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian" is dedicated to "those readers who asked...and asked...and asked...and asked for this," James wrote on the opening page, according to a release on her blog.

"Christian is a complex character, and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past," James said in the release. 

"Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story. It's been a great pleasure to return to my happy place -- writing, being with Christian and Ana in their universe, and working with the fantastic team at Vintage."

"Grey" will be published June 18, a day known to fans as Christian Grey's birthday.
