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 audiobook is intended for mature audiences.

Look for E L James’ passionate new love story, The Mister, coming April 16, 2019. 

If you want syrupy sweet happy hollywood endings, then fifty shades freed is the book for you. And that is precisely what worries me.
I hope this unrealistic fairy tale doesn't mislead women into thinking they can magically fix a guy with sadism behavior.
The truth is: it's very dangerous to get involved with a man like that. I doubt most abusive men are in the top 1% category with everything in life like Christian Grey is.
Mr. Grey is a self made billionaire by age 26. He looks like a Greek God. He plays the piano, sings, owns planes he flys himself, boats he sails himself. He has a maid, chaufeur, body guards, personal assistants, owns lots of real estate and several luxury cars.
Are all abusive men actually high society like that? And can they typically be miraculously healed by an innocent girls love alone?
Ladies, be careful. Don't go questing for a Christian Grey in real life. He is a very exaggerated fictious character.

I have become enticed by these characters and their story. The kinky stuff was interesting to read but I really enjoyed the characters. Their conflict, different personalities, sharing and becoming one in marriage. There is more to the story then the sex and that I enjoyed greatly. I love how Anna loves and helps Christian to become a better himself. Then again the way Christian pushes Anna to be bolder and more attentive is really inspiring. Their love story, yes kinky and out of the normal, is what I wish to accomplish. The partnership, trust, and growth I want in my relationship. I will see about getting my love to read this and maybe I will.

What can I say - I read these books for the fun and the sex. Kinky F'ery. Honestly - for someone from my generation this is just unreal. Aside from the fun there is an important element throughout the 3 books - There is true affection between Christian and Anastasia. He never abuses her. They grow and fall in love together with a very interesting enjoyable sex life. For me the new experience began with Book 1 and I'm almost ashamed to say I've read that darned book at least two dozen times! Enjoy.

The third and final book in the Fifty Shades trilogy. Ana and Christian are married and ready to begin their new life together. Of course, Christian is business as usual, but Ana had to figure out how to not get herself lost in being Mrs. Christian Grey. I felt a big shift in Ana with this book. While Christian still dominates most of their life in and out of the bedroom Ana has really become her own person.

I am glad we got to see a little more depth with Christian’s character. He was tested in many ways and although his response was not always the best it made me love him even more. I am just glad we finally dealt with that “Mrs. Robinson” problem because she was getting on my nerves! I do not understand how he did not see the problem with her. Between her and Hyde there is enough drama for a lifetime!

I could not put this book down. What was a great ending to a great trilogy. I cannot even tell you how many times I have read these books. No matter what anyone says I would start reading these books because you will enjoy it. One of my favorite series I have read!

I liked this one the best out of the 3. It had much more of a story and things going on. The story didn't let the sex carry the book.

I wasn't sure I would read the 2nd book after reading the first, but after watching the movies I wanted to see how they were different then the movies. I was a bit shocked at how some of the scenes in the movie were done compared to the books. And some were done better one that comes to mind is how things ended with Jack I liked the movie better with how it was presented, but the book as it gave more perspective with those involved.

The movies really dropped the ball with how they handled "Mrs. Robinson" she was much more involved then how the move let on. And they never even showed the relationship between the bodyguard and the housekeeper it really could have added more depth to the movies.

It would be nice to have a spin off with Kate and Elliott that could show what is going on with Ana and Christian.

This series is so stupid.

Drama drama drama. Over inane things. Over nothing. Drama and fighting and arguments that make no sense just so something exciting will happen in the story.

Christian Grey is a walking red flag, and fans only tolerate his abusive 'uwu poor tortured soul' personality because he's rich and hot.
Ana says it herself multiple times- how is she supposed to keep up with his mood swings?

And once again, every single problem they have is solved by sex and never mentioned again.
"I want to connect the way we know how."
"After all our arguing today, all the frustration- we still have this. We will always have this."
She's talking about sex. Sex is literally the only way they can actually communicate with one another.
Ana's catchphrase is 'please don't be angry with me." I swear she says it every chapter.

One of the most annoying things while reading this, besides god awful plot, is that the author seems to learn a new word shortly before sitting down to write and then uses it over and over and over...
Chaste. Sardonic. Replete.
It feels like the only resources she uses to write is a thesaurus and celebrity magazines.

I only read this so I could properly debate with fans over why it's trash, and I'm glad it's done. I can't believe this garbage is 1600 pages long.

The previous book ends and this begins by skating over the material that would make a fourth volume. The author changes her style to fill in the gaps with back story and the result is hideous. Ana comes across as a stupid and rather pathetic woman. But when we have caught up with the plot again E.L. James is back to her beguiling best , never allowing her characters enough time for reconciliation before the next crisis threatens to overwhelm them. Ana's personal development is remarkable; she started the series barely able to say boo to a goose but ends it being capable of outwitting people with cunning to match the best. Perhaps we have the key to why this story is so compelling, it is not just about Christian Grey but equally about Anastasia Steele. Not sure how you end a story like this and I question whether the author has nailed it. Personal experience would suggest that the relationship would fall apart in the end and the harder you strive for a positive outcome the deeper the tears etch into your heart when you fail.

Although I enjoyed the first book of the trilogy (I bought all three), I wish I'd left it there. The second book was repetitive and by the third I was actually quite sick of Christian and Ana.

Some of the events are improbable and there is a lot of repetition: e.g, the word "mercurial". The sex scenes are so old hat by the end of the trilogy that when I could see one coming up I'd groan inwardly (in despair) and hope it was over soon. In short, the sex scenes got in the way of the story, and rapidly became an annoyance.

Overall, these books are reasonable enough, but I'm relieved to have finished them now so I can start something else. Note: I skipped the very last "additional" chapter from Christian's point of view as I had read enough by then.

Right! first off when i first read this book i actually rushed reading it,it took me 1 night to read it and i stayed up until 5,am because i was actually obsessed by this point with having devoured fifty shades of grey and fifty shades darker and i loved this one just as much as the other 2.
But since ive re read all the fifty shades trilogy and took my time reading them, i was actually a little disappointed with this book not disappointed enough to never read it again but disappointed because i thought it was really rushed towards the end and alot of stuff crammed into it.
The sex scenes are still fab dabby dosy though and got my blood boiling a few times.
BUT yeh i was a bit gutted with the ending!!!!!! SPOILERS!!!!!!

E.L James writing in this one was like she didnt know what else to write for instance the honeymoon she goes on and on about.....for a quite a few chapters actually, boats ,jet skies, hickys, photos ,tickling, handcuffs, sex ,sex and more sex then once she gets to ana being pregnant its all rushed from there theres a kidnap plot which all happens in one chapter. Then obviously after christian now excepts little blip it goes from little blip to being massivly pregnant and doing some unimaginary sex scene in the red room of pain/pleasure then straight to teddys 2nd birthday to being pregnant with blip number 2. Then ended happily looking out the window before baby 2 was even born.
I understand thats its to show how happliy ever after they are and how christian has come full circle from the dark sadist what liked to whip little brown haired girls what looked like his mother into the light a happy family man what wants lots of children and ana doing the same coming from a sweet innocent virgin to a nymth manic.
It just needed slowing down a bit. It was all too rushed (in my opinion)
Anyway having said that i still really liked the book but just not as much as the first 2! sorry!
I would advise fifty shades lovers to read this book to get the end of a story!!!

This is the last book in the trilogy. Christian and Anna just get back from their honeymoon and are about to begin their new life together as a couple. However, something from Christian's past has come back to haunt him. Both Christian and Anna have to go to this final battle before they can live happily ever after.

It's a very good final instalment for this fantastic trilogy. There is a good mix of action, mystery and most of hot sex in the book. I cannot put it down as I can't wait to find out why Christian was targeted. And the fact that the author wait till the very end to reveal it means I was hooked all the way through. Apart from the crime thriller element, the change in Christian is even more apparent than previous books and he can finally make peace with his past. The author also tied up the loose ends of other minor storylines such as Kate and Elliot, the attitude of Christian's father towards Anna etc. The epilogue is also well written, giving us the point of view of Christian when he first met Anna and I could not keep myself from laughing.

This book has definitely set a new trend or era for erotica. A well known televisin series even base one of the episodes in the current season based on an author of erotic-you can see its effects. And a movie based on the novel is currently being put together and I am sure I will definitely check it out.
