When unworldly student Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged young entrepreneur Christian Grey, it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and ultimately repelled by Christian's singular sexual tastes, Ana demanded a deeper commitment; determined to keep her, Christian agreed. Now, together, they have more-love, pa ...more

You're right, he shouldn't be cute and romantic, he should be needy and very intense in other aspects of the relationship once he knows her well. The love of a good woman can change a man's life but you can't always shake off psychological trauma in a year or so.
While I do understand that people into s&m are normal people with different tastes, the author doesn't really address how his past meshed with his love for Ana in his head and how they worked through that.(less)

Welcome back, fellow masochists (or those of you who simply wish to forgo the hassle of reading this crap and opt for my poignant reviews instead). I wish I could say Fifty Shades Freed met my expectations, but...well, honestly, I don't know what the fuck that was. I don't know how I feel. I don't know what to think. The only thing I know is that, usually after finishing a trilogy/series, I'm lost. My brothers end up finding me curled up in a ball somewhere and they laugh and call me names, mos

Sometimes you can just have too much of a good thing.

I believe one of my GR friends called this book an "exhausting melodramatic hot mess." (Thanks, Amy!) After having stayed awake until 3:00am to try to push through said mess, I would have to agree.

I really wanted to love this book. When I read Fifty Shades of Grey I was mesmerized - I'd never read anything like it. The story stuck with me for days, and I immediately bought the second book and it was much the same thing. There were little hin
*Sigh* So bummed the series is over. Ana and Christian's character evolution throughout the trilogy is unlike any I've ever seen. She started off as a naive, shy college student, while Christian (AKA Fifty) was a cold, aggressive businessman. By the end of Fifty Shades Freed, not only are they closer to one another, but they're also more confident in themselves.

In the final installment of the Fifty Shades series, Ana and Christian are married, but that doesn't mean that it's all roses and sunsh

Recommends it for: Hopeless romantics who are able to control their gag reflexes (in more ways than one)

Things I have learned while reading the Fifty Shades series:

a. Stalking is good. (No, really...stalking is acceptable behavior! *rolls eyes*)

b. Being controlled is a turn on. (Free will? Freedom? Why would I want that? I want someone to control me! Well, sometimes, at least...because you know...there are benefits to being controlled. See below.)

c. If you have low self-esteem, it's perfectly okay to lose your virginity to a stalker, uber-controlling guy who gets off on kinky-f*ckery. Because, you

Fifty, Fifty, Fifty. I can’t get enough Fifty.

I have read a lot of mixed reviews for Fifty Shades Freed, the third novel in the Fifty Shades trilogy. This is my response: Fifty Shades Freed was EXCELLENT. How can anyone complain about more Fifty?

Reading this novel was a bittersweet experience. I couldn’t get enough; I wa
By now, I'm not entirely sure what to say about this book. Aside from now Ana and Christian are now married, travel to fantastic places for their honeymoon and someone is still trying to do both of them harm, not much has changed. I'm really tired of Christian's over-protectiveness, fast. It's beyond annoying and he's no where near as sexy now as I thought he was in the beginning.


I can't understand why anyone would think Christian's behavior is sexy. Troubled? Tortured? Stalkerish? Childish? He

Okay, don't hurt me, I know there are a lot of Christian Grey fans out there, unfortunately I am just not one of them.

This is the third and final installment of the Fifty Shades trilogy, Ana and Christian are now married and are set to live a long and happy life, or are they? With some body out there threatening them and Christian's own fucked up past, wedded bliss maybe but a dream.

Although I am not the biggest fan of the other books, I did find them strangely addicting and was quite looking f

Oh dear Lord I have just finished reading this and I can't stop laughing. At the end of the book there is an Author's Note that states that the author is fully aware that you cannot walk into an American Bank and demand to draw five million dollars. Oh my ever loving hell. THAT is the part that you're apologizing for?

I want to cry scream and throw things! These books make me feel like the world is irreversibly messed up. And no - not because of the sex. Have all the kinky fun sex you want. But
Profound relief that I've finally finished this book.
441 pages.
Dear God it was about 200 pages too long. I swear, I thought it was never going to end. On and on and on and on...I just can't describe it.
And then, just when I thought it was over...along comes an Epilogue.
Ana and Christian frolicking in a meadow with their son, while she pregnant with their daughter.
But it's not a short epilogue. Oh no. It comes complete with a Flashback.
Oh no! Poor Ana had a scary labor and delivery!

Looking at the other reviews here for the continuation of what can only be called the word-like remnants of a loose bowel movement that doesn't even have the decency to be original fiction only further confirms that the world is ready for the zombie apocalypse. Or an apocalypse of any kind, really.

My review for the first "book" is applicable here as well, though as far as I'm aware this "book" picks up past where my summary ended. I'm still unsure of how it is possible, but the story nose dived

~This review is for all 3 books in the Fifty Shades Trilogy~

WOW...I just absolutely love all 3 books in this trilogy. I love them so much that not only do I have all 3 books on my Kindle but as soon as I finished reading Fifty Shades Freed earlier today I went online and ordered all 3 in paperback.

Now I’m sitting here trying to put into words how much I love the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy without sounding like a babbling idiot but I don’t think that’s going to happen. So let the babbling comm
Well, I hope you’re all happy, because I am dead inside.

Books are supposed to make you feel richer, yet I feel as though I have lost things. A good deal of my sanity, a fair number of brain cells, and whatever I had left of my dignity. All gone.

How this trilogy has managed to outsell pretty much everything is beyond me. This story is ridiculous. There is zero plot apart from the repulsive and repetitive sex. Take that away and you have a man and woman who groom each other. They might as well be

Unconditional love and forgiveness.

At the heart, this is what the Fifty Shades trilogy is all about, only readers don’t see this at the onset. Instead, most of them hear about all of the steamy sex and BDSM scenes. The appeal of this series—which can be compared to the addictiveness of the Twilight series—is certainly the scorching hot lovemaking. There’s no doubt about that. This is romance at its finest, with a healthy side of ki

This is a review for the overall story—all three books

1st book - 5 stars Loved it!
2nd book - 4 stars Liked it a lot!
3rd book - 1 1/2 to 2 stars Huge disappointment. Big old mess!

I read the online version of this story. I loved it until the story "jumped shark" (went down hill) in what will be the third book. I can only hope the author takes the time to make some huge plot changes and releases a better third book than what she produced for her online version. It was such a disappointment to what

This was a perfect ending to what has definitely become my favorite series! It was wonderful to read the conclusion of this wonderful story that is Ana and her Fifty Shades. I couldn’t love Christian any more if I tried, and I am big enough to admit that I am just glowing green with envy of Ana :) - For the most part this book was not as intense all the time as the other two but what was most wonderful, after watching these two overcome some pretty major obstacles

What a Awesome conclusion to the Fifty Shades trilogy. So bittersweet that it had to end, but Christian and Ana deserve their happily ever after. God knows they worked hard for it! IF you have not read the first two books in this series you really need to, to understand this book. They all go together and should be read in order.

By now most of you have heard about the hoopla surrounding the very popular Fifty Shades trilogy by E.L. James. Fifty Shades of Grey has an astounding 4,300 reviews on Goodreads and all three books are currently the top three best selling digital books on Amazon for erotica. There’s also quite some controversy surrounding E.L., this series and how it was published. From what I understand, Fifty Shades of Grey was originally titled, Master of the Universe and was Twilight fan fiction. The Twiligh ...more

An undercurrent. By definition, it's the hidden movement of water beneath the surface. Its tug and motion are only perceptible upon submersion. Fifty Shades, is exactly like an undercurrent. You dive into the story thinking you know what to expect, only to find out once you’re in it that it’s something else completely. And Fifty Shades Freed is the riptide of currents. You’ll be swept away with a force that is impossible to escape or turn back from, not that you’d want to escape. You’ll savor ev

It pains me to no end that I don’t have proper reviews up for these books. These were one of the first sets of books I read when I first started reading series and were a HUGE part of what inspired me to start reading and blogging again but at the time that I read them, I still wasn’t writing real reviews.

I don’t know quite how I feel about this book. I inhaled it and was greatly entertained, but I also found myself cringing a lot and was more uncomfortable with Ana and Christian’s relationship than I have ever been before.

After reading this book I realized what an incredible journey the author took us on. I had quite a few problems with the writing and Ana’s character in the beginning, but the author knows how to tell a hell of a tale, so I was sucked in despite those issues. There was intensity
Ohh, I am so sad its over. It was a perfect ending to a perfect story. The Fifty Shades books will always be my all time favorite read. And Christian is my all time favorite hero! Oh God, do I love this man. I would join his sub-club too any day.

I loved both Ana and Christian in this one. Ana changed a lot. She was standing up for herself much more, but also still had her insecurities, which I liked, cause it made her more human and made me relate to her more. I mean, from my point of view at l

This is a difficult review for me. I have a serious love/hate relationship with this book, the series, and the characters.

First the stuff that I didn’t love so much

If you haven’t read book 1 and/or book 2, I highly recommend it since book 3 is literally just the 2nd half of book 2. THAT is my first problem. Book 3 isn’t a book but just the continuing story of book 2. Book 2 annoyed me because there was this weird arbitrary cut off point that signaled “we are ending the story here” rather than a
Edit: 1/19/12, 3.5 stars because I really love the epilogue. I don't love this one as much as I do the first book in the series and I think it's about 100 pages too long.
