After reading this book I realized I should have stopped at Book 1. James did a great job captivating my attention with the plot of Book 1 but the technique and style of writing was lost in the next two books. It had potential and then it just seemed like a really, really long story that took close to 1000 pages to end. I saw great potential with the beginning of the trilogy. It just seemed to drag with little bits of action and adventure. Book 1 was very intense and if James had kept up the intensity in the next two books this would have been a great trilogy. Book 3 seemed like a Harlequin novel to me.

Fifty Shades Freed Soundtrack
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, 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.
