Fifty Shades Freed from Christians POV by E. L. James
Synopsis: You are cordially invited to the wedding of the decade, when Christian Grey will make Anastasia Steele his wife. But is he really husband material? His dad is unsure, his brother wants to organize one helluva bachelor party, and his fiancee won’t vow to obey…And marriage brings its own challenges. Their passion for each other burns hotter and deeper than ever, but Ana’s defiant spirit continues to stir Christian’s darkest fears and tests his need for control. As old rivalries and resentments endanger them both, one misjudgment threatens to tear them apart. Can Christian overcome the nightmares of his childhood and the torments of his youth, and save himself? And once he’s discovered the truth of his origins, can he find forgiveness and accept Ana’s unconditional love? Can Christian finally be freed?
I forgot how much I like these characters. I loved being back in this series and seeing all these old friends. It felt so comfortable and so familiar.
I found the sexy/naughty scenes in this book just felt different than they used to, maybe they got lamer? Maybe I’ve read better scenes recently and have made these ones feel off? Maybe E.L. James just wasn’t on her A game with this one? I don’t know, it just felt off, and a bit weird.
I loved Ana’s side of the story in the original books, but these ones being done in Christian’s side make the story feel so much more intense, so much deeper, so much darker (obviously).. I really enjoyed that intensity and that other perspective…But she just didn’t have the sexy side in this one as good as the first ones.
I will admit that one huge problem of reading a different point of view of a book that you love makes it feel a little bit long and tedious, because you kind of know what’s coming up and you obviously know whats going to happen. But I still mostly enjoyed it anyways.
Overall though, if you’re a fan of the Fifty Shades books I would absolutely recommend this series from Christians point of view. Maybe not as a first time read though. It might be too mentally intense as a first time read.
I rate this book
