Description from the publisher:


When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees.

Now, Ana and Christian have it all—love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own identity. And Christian must overcome his compulsion to control as he wrestles with the demons of a tormented past.

Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to make Ana’s deepest fears turn to reality.

This book is intended for mature audiences.

This is book three of the trilogy and they do need to be read in order.

I had promised friends that I would read these books in anticipation of going to the play SPANKED this coming Friday. 

The only thing good I can say about this book is that I finished it.  I just wish I could bleach my brain and remove all memory.  I was warned that if I didn’t like book two, then I would have to push myself to finish book three.  I must say my friend was right.

The nauseating repetition of certain points made me want to throw my Tablet.  Her blue eyes looking into his grey eyes – gag me!  Then there was the Mr. Grey-Mrs. Grey drivel.  Anyone who has been married, will do the Mr.-Mrs. thing; I know we did, but if these characters did it once, they must have done it a hundred times and they were still doing it three years later.  It was maddening!  This wasn’t romantic, it was page filler.

My advice – if you haven’t read this loudly, boisterously, vociferously touted book – DON’T!  If you have any sense of the literary mind, save yourself.  The next time someone says “if you loved FSOG, you’ll love ____,” run screaming from the room!  This person is not your friend and has the literary acumen of a goldfish.

Somebody, please, send me something DECENT to read!

Grammar/editing:  A – near perfect
