Fifty Shades of Grey fans have much to be excited about with E.L. James's new steamy book, The Mister. While the passionate romance novel bears no resemblance to the five-book and three-film Fifth Shades franchise, eagle-eyed fans noticed a subtle connection between the novels, and it's all in a name. According to Entertainment Weekly, the protagonist, Maxim Trevelyan, has the same last name as Christian Grey's adopted mother's maiden name. Sneaky, sneaky!
"There is a story behind it but it's not one I want to talk about right now," James told the publication. "I might talk about it later. But - there's a connection, I don't know what it is yet."
