When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees.
Now, Ana and Christian have it all—love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own identity. And Christian must overcome his compulsion to control as he wrestles with the demons of a tormented past.
Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to make Ana’s deepest fears turn to reality.
If you thought books one and two were good, welcome with open arms Fifty Shades Freed. We know all of our characters well, and this time around get to enjoy the book about a month in the future, but have no fear, flashbacks will fill you in on all the good details you have missed, and good they are. This book is the tale of settling into life for Christian and Ana. It has some drama, fear and love all rolled up into one story. I found that all of the characters stayed true to the ideals I saw in them in the beginning and that the author kept me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next piece. In this book Christian grows beyond his dark side and truly finds the man he can be, with a few hiccups along the way of course. The Epilogue is great but the Shades of Christian and Meet fifty shades sections after that just seem a bit out of place for me. While they didn't distract from the story I am not sure they added anything to it either!
