When Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged entrepreneur Christian Grey, it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably.
Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy, and being together poses challenges neither of them had anticipated. Ana must learn to share Grey's opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity or independence and Grey must overcome his compulsion to control and lay to rest the horrors that still haunt him.
Now, finally together, they have love, passion, intimacy, wealth and a world of infinite possibilities. But just when it seems that they really do have it all, misfortune and fate combine to make Ana's worst nightmares come true...
Ana and Christian are starting a new life as newlyweds and this means really getting to know each other. Ana has to get used to having extreme wealth and the lifestyle that affords them. Meanwhile Christian has to curb his controlling behaviour; he fell in love with Ana's headstrong and independent nature so he needs to learn to love her without suffocating her.
Added to this is a serious threat to both of them. Christian's helicopter was sabotaged in the last book and Fifty Shades Freed begins with an arson attack on Christian's offices. Who is out to hurt them and how will Christian ever keep Ana safe?
This book explores even further how the relationship between Christian and Ana develops. They love each other so much but they still have a huge amount to learn and share.
E.L. James has created a terrific trilogy and one I know that I will read again and again. I think that the author has created two fantastic characters and as a reader you just want to know more and more about them. I appreciate that these books might not be to everyone's taste, however if you strip everything back what you have is a wonderful and completely absorbing love story and what could be better than that?
