“After all the hype I was bitterly disappointed. Don't bother reading it if you're expecting a good love story or an answer as to why Christian is the way he is, or if you think true love will change him in the end. However if your after porn in a book with a story that has no real depth to it...”see full review » see other reviews »
“Hey laat ik een 300 blz lang verhaal vertellen , dat ik ook in 10 blz had kunnen doen.”Kristina M wrote this review yesterday. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Quite predictable and lengthy, could have been told in 300 pages but it DID answer the question I had. I thought it was better than the second one, yet not as good as the first.”Sabine M wrote this review 5 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Yes, I completed the trilogy. Take away the explicit and beyond kinky sex and you have a paperback romance with a few twists to derail the affair. UGHHH. The author must have experience in BDSM, a very vivid imagination or done some hands on research. Best seller...probably because of all the lonely housewives and stay at home moms.”Carole D wrote this review 7 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“In the last book, some words gets very repetitive. Some sentences were said over and over again. There's too many overdramatize events going on in such short period of times that in a way it feels kind of rushed. Too rushed even and because of that it feels kind of like too made up for me. I definitely love the first book in the trilogy but as i go reading the second book, i started noticing the repetitiveness and things were moving so fast it's almost too good to be true. When i read the first book, her inner goddess didn't bother me much like most people claimed but i can barely tolerate it in the second and third book as it gets pretty annoying. I already have my own thoughts in my head to think of, i don't need others 'inner goddess' to think about. When i continue with the third book, i already lose most of my interest and find myself reading what feels more like just a 'fill-in' here and there which is dragging for too long and at some point only kept reading because i wanted to finish the whole trilogy. It's nice though that there's an insight to their future. It's the typical "they lived happily ever after". It's a pity that the second and third book didn't turn out to be as interesting as the first.”xoxobaby ash wrote this review 8 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“This is one of the few books that in the end skips to the future for a glimpse of how their lives turned out. You aren't left hanging, wondering what could have been. Good series. ”Kim D wrote this review 2 weeks ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“The last book was great. It was really good, but Christian still has his issues. It got better though, but I think she just threw in a couple dramatic events to keep it going when it could have ended sooner. I liked the ending though, how they found happiness together. Another book maybe????”Olivia Z wrote this review 2 weeks ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“over long overhyped boring! as I suspected not enough narrative content for three books, the story could have been told in one book”Christine R wrote this review 2 weeks ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Let me start by saying that I really enjoyed the first book in the trilogy. However this book like I have said in my previous reviews from the series is totally not a BDSM book. So if you expect something like that I suggest go look for other books to read.
Yes, it does involve explicit sexual content and language however I don't find anything shocking into it. If you have read Pascal Bruckner, 50 Shades of Grey it will seem very childish to you.
I have read the first 2 books from the series, one year ago and when I picked up this book I knew why I had such a long break. Even though the style is enjoyable and is fast reading there are some phrases, words that seem to pop up every 2-3 lines (such as "inner goddess") which dove me completely crazy and it made me want to put the book down.
I think that this serie came down as a shocker for most females, because of the way the author managed to create the stereotypical bad boy who turns to the good side aka "vanilla life" when he falls inlove with Anastasia Steele. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it, but I don't find it nowhere brilliant or breathtaking. There are much better books out there. I wanted to see what the fuss was about.
It was enjoyable and fun to read. If you get passed of the overuse of "inner goddess" and the stupidity of characters sometimes you'll enjoy it.
Have fun reading!”
