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.
This book is intended for mature audiences.


This book launched itself at me and took out a sizeable, book-shaped chunk out of my soul. I loved this book. In Fifty Shades Freed, we got action, seriousness, danger, love, LOTS of love, lust, and tenderness. Its amazing, honestly.

This has got to be my favorite out of the whole series. My only problem is that I feel everything happened super fast. Married after 3 months? Come on. I’m glad it worked out for Anastasia because before I read the books, I judged them by the titles. In my head I was like…, “Okay Anastasia will get in this relationship and hate it and it’ll hurt her and she’ll figure out her worth and escape Christian in the last book.” NOPE. I’m so glad it didn’t turn out that way. I love the way this turned out. It’s like a love story turned action film. Its beautiful.

I feel like Christian really grew up a lot in this last book. Ana took more control and they kind of have a balance now, and its a lot like a normal relationship now and I’m happy for them. Now, I have to talk about things that include spoilers so don’t read down below if you haven’t read this series! 🙂 And go read it! It’s so pleasantly charming.







Okay, I definitely saw Ana’s pregnancy WAY before she did. And who else was horrified at Christian’s reaction to finding out? I saw a spoiler on social media, like a fake movie cover with Christian and a baby on it before I read the last installment and got SO angry. But, as I was reading, and as Christian was becoming more normal, I was thinking he’d somehow be shocked but delighted at the news of her pregnancy-not mad?! Maybe I had too much faith in him. Either way, I love how the book ended, how the epilogue showed them a happy family and with Christian such a good father (weren’t we all secretly worried he’d be a weird dad?). I loved living this ride with Christian and Anastasia and I can’t wait for the third movie.
