Review: Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades, #3)Fifty Shades Freed by E.L. James

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book needs no introduction nor a synopsis so I'll just get down to it.

Oh Fifty what a ride!! What a heart stopping, gut wrenching, mind F*&#ing ride! This book is one to be savored. I made the mistake of rushing devouring this book without coming up for air. At first, I felt like the plot was developing too slowly. However, I eventually realized the feeling was due to my impatience; an impatient need to quench my insatiable desire to finish the series. Okay, okay...I RUSHED!!! All many of you will make the same mistake I did, but as Christian Grey would command say, "You need to learn control." Trust me on this; I ended up going back and reading it again realizing I missed so much the first time around. I don't mean missing the plot. I mean denying myself a little book foreplay; I just dove right in! Don't make my mistake; let yourself savor each and every word, feel every single caress. It's guaranteed to cause a slow sensual build-up that will explode in the end. (PS: I had to google "topping from the bottom.")

This book has everything you loved from the first two books and more! My only complaint was Christian. There were times I wanted to punch him in the mouth; that beautifull, talented, oh so dirty mouth. I would have definitely kissed it better afterwards, but I still wanted to deck him. Some of the things he did, I would have completely excused in Fifty Shades of Grey, maybe slapped him on the ass wrist in Fifty Shades Darker, but in Fifty Shades Freed I expected more out of him; he has forced me to hold him to a higher standard. He does completely make up for it in the end, but be prepared for a little Fifty frustration.

Overall, Fifty Shades Freed wasn't my favorite out of the three, but I still have to say thank you to E.L. James. Thank you for my happy ending! She ended this series leaving me completely sated (and in dire need of a cold shower). Before I read this series, I was NOT a fan of erotica, hell I still don't like erotica, but somehow Fifty has ended up on my all-time favorite's list. This series will completely mess with your mind causing a complete detachment between want and need, right and wrong. This book blurs the line, redefines limits, and takes you on a ride you'll never forget.

I'll leave you with this picture I found that perfectly (almost scary how perfectly) depicts what I'm SURE will be one of your favorite scenes from Fifty Shades Freed

  1. picture:) I had many of the same complaints as you about this one, pacing, fifty knowing to not make certain mistakes during this part of the trilogy, etc. It's been a great ride though. Your reviews as always are sensational and make me laugh. Great job!

  2. I love Grey. I have to find my own Mr. Grey

  3. Now *I* have to google "topping from the bottom". AND reread this book ;)

  4. Haha...I, too, googled "topping from the bottom" as it appeared in this book, and then two more shortly thereafter.
