Fifty Shades Freed: Book Three by Entrenue - review by Princess-Kayla ♥

Fifty Shades of Badly Written Trash

If you're into reading about dumb girls, and their abusive boyfriends try this book out. The third book of the Fifty Shades trilogy is by far the worst of the three. It took me ages to finally finish, and I've never been so happy to be done with a book.
Finally done with the series
Badly written, Predictable, Sappy, Abusive relationship, Ana is an idiot

About author

This is what I wrote for this section on the two previous books:

"The author is EL James. From what I found on her site, she's a mother of two, and looks to be in her thirties or forties. Fifty Shades of Grey is her first book along with Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed. From what I've heard from numerous sources she originally wrote this book as a Twilight fanfiction, and I can definitely see the similarities. I find her writing skills fairly poor, but she's good at holding attention."

I do feel the need to change it slightly though, as this one didn't do a very good job of holding my attention at all. It took me ages to read it, even though I'm normally a fast reader. The writing did't approve, and neither did the sex scenes.

Content / Style / Audience

This book has been labeled "mommy porn" and it's understandable why. It's considered non-taboo erotica. Honestly though, I've read better smut on the internet. The sex scenes are supposed to be super kinky, but they're not that great and I didn't find myself getting turned on at all. If you liked Twilight though, and the two previous books though, you'll probably enjoy this one as well.

Warning: There may be spoilers for those who have not read the first two books.

The book starts out on Christian and Ana's honeymoon. Yes, they got married after only knowing each other for about five months, with the logic "we'll get to know each other once we're married." Seriously. I wish I could say that at least the characters improved, but if anything, they've gotten worse.

Ana is still just as idiotic as ever when it comes to anything sexual, and Christian is still far too controlling. Just how little does Ana understand? At one point Christian says he wants to fuck her boobs, and her reaction is "What the fuck does that mean?" I was in 8th grade and knew what that meant. This book makes it seem like if you haven't had sex you obviously know nothing about sex.

When I say Christian is still controlling too, I mean VERY controlling. Then they get into huge fights, and instead of acting like a normal couple and talking through their problems, they have sex. Every fight but one ends in them having crazy sex.

There is also a bit of a plot, but it's not much of one. Ana's old boss is trying to kill them, Mrs. Robinson causes a bit of a fight, Another little problem pops up, and of course every situation ends in a very predictable way.

The book ends with an epilogue, and a section called "Fifty Shades of Christian", which is the beginning of book one from his POV.

It was all very disappointing, and frankly, I'm glad it's over.

The front of the book has "Fifty Shades Freed" in the top corner with a pair of metal handcuffs on the front. Not a very discreet design if you ask me. When I see handcuffs I immediately think "kinky", however your vanilla friends may think you're reading a police story.

Of course this book is so popular that anyone could probably tell what you're reading.

Personal comments

I hated this book and the entire series. Ana is an extremely unrealistic character, and Christian is frustratingly controlling. Of course, Ana is an idiot about it. She seems to think that even if she says the words "I promise", it's still ok to "change her mind". This of course only makes Christian angry which causes a fight, which leads to bad sex. I only got turned on once the entirety of this book, and it wasn't during a sex scene. She kept referring to her step-dad as "Daddy" and I got a little turned on. Not because it was her step-dad, I just like that word.

Anyway though, I wouldn't even suggest this book to my enemies.
Follow-up commentary
I still completely hate this series, and everything about it. It makes BDSM seem like something that can just be cured, or that you can just move on from. That is something I just can't stand.
On top of that, the writing is just horrid. I can only read the phrase "Holy crap" a limited amount of time before I want to set something on fire.

That being said, I would never recommend this book to anyone. There's much better erotica on the internet. Erotica that isn't about an abusive relationship.

    As a writer of erotica, and BDSM erotica I find this whole series poorly written and unrealistic. I am glad I am not the only one. Thanks for the great review.

    Thank you for reading. If it weren't for the poor writing this could be at least a little better as a series, but I just couldn't handle it.
