Fifty Shades Freed: Book Three - erotic fiction by Entrenue - review by SweetCacophony

Fifty Shades of Freed: I'm finally free of this series! *Spoiler Alert*

I did fall for the "Fifty Shades" craze, reading the books were bittersweet. The sex was interesting at first, but turned boring quickly because of the repetition.
plenty of sex scenes, quick and easy read.
simplistic and repetative writing style

E.L. James is an amateur author. This is her third book, which also happens to be the third installment of the "Shades of Grey" trilogy. The stories originated as "Twilight" Fan Fiction. Its popularity has helped it gain publication. The trilogy has become an overnight phenomenon.

Content / Style / Audience

Anastasia and Christian take a bigger step in their relationship. Ana gets her dream job, and the oh-so-controlling Mr. Grey purchases the company and begins to control Ana's day-to-day life. A disgruntled former employee from the company plots against Christian, and Christian goes missing for a few weeks. Ana learns even more about Christian's past- I did not like that E.L. James attributed Christian's affinity to the BSDM lifestyle to a dysfunction in his upbringing. That might unintentionally associate a negativity to the BSDM lifestyle for those not already familiar- and begins to understand him better.

I really wish that James would have given Anastasia a stronger character and more confidence. I prefer to read books that have a strong feminine presence, but Ana completely lacks that. She is extremely dependent on Christian in every way and has a tendency to be very naive at times.

The sex in the book starts to get really repetative and I found myself wondering if E.L. James even owns a Thesaurus, especially since she used the same phrases over and over again. The sex is unrealistic and the "inner goddess" parts get annoying. Toward the end of the book, the storyline does a lot of jumping around and it tends to get confusing to the reader. I wanted the ending to have a little more closure to the story.

Other than the many downfalls I already listed, it was a quick, easy, and entertaining read. "Fifty Shades of Freed" was still better than the first book and personally, I would say that for me it tied with the second book. It does have an interesting story line, romance, action, kinky sex and suspense. E.L. James' writing style is still simplistic and amateur, but the writing is more bearable because there is actually a plot to this story.
