Fifty Shades of Grey  - E.L. James 2.75 - (almost a) 3, but for the constant "antics" of Anastasia's Inner Goddess/"Sub" Conscious, repetitive adverb/adjective violations and the constant show-rather than tell.

Fifty Shades of Grey definitely doesn't meet my definition of quality fiction, but I've slogged through much worse and (as other reviewers have noted) there's something compelling about the narrative; enough to make me curious about books 2 and 3.
