Fifty Shades of Freedom - E.L. James

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, 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, misfortune, malice and fate combine to make Ana’s worst nightmares come true. Alone and desperate, she must face down the poisoned legacy of Christian’s past.

The book opens with Ana and Christian married and on their honeymoon. Spending time away together helps define how deep their loves is for one another. Things are smooth sailing until they arrive back home and the tension of the story begins. Characters from the past find a way to create more drama and I was surprised by the way things played out. Ana’s old boss, Jack, kidnaps Christian’s sister, Mia, and Ana tries to get her back, alone. As always, Christian finds a way to upset Ana and the threat of them being apart is looming. Ana lets loose and little and finds enjoyment in Christian’s kinky ways and the sex is steamy. The book has a Happy Ever After ending that leaves me sad not to be reading about them anymore. I really enjoyed this series!
