E L James revisits the world of Fifty Shades with a deeper and darker take on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the globe.
Their scorching, sensual affair ended in heartbreak and recrimination, but Christian Grey cannot get Anastasia Steele out of his mind, or his blood. Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control, and to love Ana on her own terms.
But the horrors of his childhood still haunt him, and Ana’s scheming boss, Jack Hyde, clearly wants her for himself.  Can Christian’s confidant and therapist, Dr. Flynn, help him face down his demons? Or will the possessiveness of Elena, his seducer, and the deranged devotion of Leila, his former submissive, drag Christian down into the past?
And if Christian does win Ana back, can a man so dark and damaged ever hope to keep her?

Last installment5 star

E L James needs to write the last book of Christian's side of the story Freed. The other 2 books, Grey and Darker answer a lot of questions that the book and movie left hanging. The last installment of the trilogy Freed would answer a lot of questions from Christian's side, and finish the story. Can't wait to read what she writes next 55



Christian Grey has been my obsession since the series was released. He is broken and I love how much his heart gets healed by Ana. I love reading from Christians perspective. Especially the scene where Ana draws the lipstick map, when she touches him after so much time, what happened with Charlie Tango, when his mother overheard the conversation with Elena. Love it! Can’t wait for The 3rd part of this, I’m praying it’s called Freed. 55

I love the books from Christians point of view. It brings them back to life again after the Anna trio. Now I can’t wait for Freed from Christians point of view!! Anxiously awaiting!! 55
