Book Review: Fifty Shades Freed


What is there left to do when you have already shared a dominant-submissive relationship with someone and then fallen in head over heels love? Tie the knot, of course!

So begins the third and final book in the Fifty Shades trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed. The Greys (Ana and Christian) are on their prodigal honeymoon, sightseeing around the world on yachts, private jets, and however else Mr. Grey pleases. The Greys’ honeymoon is romantic, extravagant, and speckled with “vanilla” sex mixed with the typical S&M, as should be expected; however, Ana spends much of her time questioning whether or not she is ready to be married.

Upon returning home, Ana and Christian experience the typical newlywed shocker as they discover they do not know each other as well as they thought.

Christian continues having trouble understanding what Ana sees in him, and Ana still struggles to cope with his obsessively overprotective behavior. The Greys both prove they are full of surprises. Christian takes Ana on a trip with all of their friends. Meanwhile, Ana is more willing to experiment in the bedroom with Christian.

The ever-present, out-to-get-Ana danger lurks around each corner, as Ana’s former boss, Jack, keeps a close eye on her and her new husband. Christian hides all news about Jack from Ana as tightens security for her and the family. Ana has a shocking secret of her own that threatens the stability of the Greys’ union.

Much the same as the last two novels, James’ plots are painstakingly predictable and continue to resemble that of the Twilight saga. James succeeded in tying up loose ends left from Fifty Shades Darker. However, it was a bit hard to believe that Ana and Christian were still so unsure of their relationship when that drama seemed to have been cleared up in the second novel. That being said, Fifty Shades Freed ends the way the series should — with the Greys enjoying their fairytale happily ever after and having frequent, kinky sex.
