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

To fall in love with Christian5 star

Most people will pass on the opportunity to read the series in a different POV but let me tell you how great it is to see the character I hated in Fifty Shades of Grey to become the man we all loved at the end of the series. Understanding the real Christian Grey is what we all needed as a reader! To think that a powerful man like Christian could have so many insecurities. Those are the characteristics that you don’t see in the original series! I absolutely loved the book and my favorite part was watching him fall in love with Ana and the odd feeling of what love means to him💕 And the next best part was his POV of his convo with Grace after she slaps Elena and he has to explain his sexual relationship to his MOM😳 We all know how the story ends but the opportunity to be in Christians Head was amazing! 55

Clarifying!!!5 star

Omg i just keep loving him more and more! I loved the part about christian’s thought about Anna wearing a bikini cause in the fifty shades darker I always wondered how he was okay with that but the control freak has a private beach in mind so there is no problem! 55

Darker5 star

I truly love reading about Christian’s POV. I always was intrigued by his mind. He is a true dominant alpha male and Anastasia is his equal. I can’t tell you how much emotions I’ve been through while reading this book, but if giving a chance again I would. I love the edginess of this book and the characters themselves never fail they grow and learn. This is what’s makes this book worthwhile. 55


Christian POV 25 star

I read the trilogy and loved it. I gave 3 Star to Gary, so I hesitated to read this Darker POV 2. I loved it. Like the first books of the trilogy, book 2 was better then the first. I sound like complaint but it’s a praise. Read it! 55
