Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, the Fifty Shades trilogy will obsess you, possess you and stay with you for ever.When Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged entrepreneur Christian Grey, it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably.

But just when it seems that they really do have it all, tragedy and fate combine to make Ana's worst nightmares come true ...

I love a happy ending and Fifty Shades of Grey: Freed certainly delivered the goods for me. I was a little disappointed with the second book, Darker, but this book more than made up for it. The plot developed much further than just lots of sex and the story was written from both Christian and Ana's viewpoints which added depth for me. I was particularly fascinated by the complexities of Christian's character. I enjoyed how the author maintained the suspense of his character.
The relationship between Ana and Christian has greatly evolved and they are equal partners now. I wasn't too keen on the submissive/ dominant relationship which they experienced in the previous books. It didn't seem particularly healthy or balanced to me, but having said that it's refreshing to read a book that is as daring and different as the Fifty Shades Trilogy.
Overall, I very much enjoyed the Fifty Shades Trilogy. Ultimately, it's a wonderfully romantic, touching love story between two people who are willing to work through their issues and fight for their love.
