Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed  - E.L. James The authorE L James is a TV executive, wife and mother-of-two based in West London. Since early childhood she dreamed of writing stories that readers would fall in love with, but put those dreams on hold to focus on her family and her career. She finally plucked up the courage to put pen to paper with her first novel, Fifty Shades of Grey. E L James is currently working on a new love story... For more information visit http://www.eljamesauthor.comThe synopsisWhen 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, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of infinite possibilities. But Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy and being together poses challenges neither of them ever anticipated. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian's opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity, identity, or independence; Christian must somehow overcome his compulsion to control and lay to rest the horrors that blighted his past and haunt his present. Just when it seems that together their love can conquer any obstacle, tragedy, malice and fate combine to make Ana's worst nightmares come true.The reviewI kind of had my hopes up for this book, the third one of this series, after reading the second. Unfortunately this book is a good example that sometimes there are to many books in a series. There was space for this third book still in the story of Christian and Anastasia but this book could have had 200 pages less. This book has some time shifts going on and they can be a bit confusing after reading the first two books. Obviously it covers the things in the relationship between Christian and Anastasia that still had to be covered to close the story. Besides that parts the book was more of the same and I noticed I started scanning it more than reading. On the bright site. Less sex more story again and again better written as the first two. Thing is you cannot read these books separate, you have to start with the first one and work your way up to this or you will miss to much information and for a book with hardly a storyline that is kind of ironic.
