Great ending, can't wait to read the series from Christian's point of view. Hopefully the author goes ahead with this. I love that Christian finally gets the Ana really does love him and that his past doesn't have to direct his future. ( )

The book does end up "Making up with me", but the very beginning was a rough time! It's a big pet peeve of mine if you're reading a series, invested in the character and what happens, and when a book comes out, suddenly a HUGE thing has happened, so you weren't there for all the details you were looking forward to! Reading after the fact with mere flashbacks is so not the same thing :(

As before sex is a little too dominant in the story, to where it loses some of its appeal. Again a lot of the dialogue is too melodramatic and out of place. However, James does try to inject more plot points this time around. We have the drama of the boss, resolution of other key players, some new "dangers", and then the surprising twist near the end that threatens to blow everything up.

I would have enjoyed this one more as I do think the author was trying to add more struggles that made sense, but Ana greatly started annoying me again. I had made peace with her the second time, but here she's just plain dense.

She irritated me immensely not understanding his anger and making a huge production of her emotions during the bar scene. I'm not providing spoilers here, but if you've read the book then you know what I mean. There's a crazy guy on the loose after her, so she tells Christian on the phone (who is out of town) when he's worried that she promises she WONT go to the bar, but instead will hang out with her friend at home, safe. She then does the oposite after changing her mind, never calling to let him know, leaving everyone worried sick, and parties for hours.

When he gets enraged, it's not a control issue people. She thinks it was but how dense she is is what I don't understand. It is a RESPECT issue. It was dishonorable to go back on your word to someone who was worried about you, lie and just think about yourself, then get offended if they get upset. It's not about control with this, but about honesty and honor. I was also irritated at the...err, unexpected announcement toward the end. Sure, it does happen, but shouldn't because she's too flighty to remember something so important.

For some reason her actions and silly thoughts kept getting on my nerves. The second half of the book improves, I love the family and friend life and enjoyed when she started going back to work and other stuff started happening. The ending was a very happy ending. I think the author resolved things pretty nicely.

These books are addicting, despite flaws, and I couldn't put it down. Read it in one sitting and skipped sleep. There's something about the story that keeps you reading.

This was not nearly as interesting as the first two. I guess I got over the sex every other page thing lol. I wish it would have focused a little more on the whole crazy stalker aspect. It did get better as it moved a long, but it was slow moving. A nice tidy little end to the series. ( )

This book was fun and exciting, full of drama - so much drama. Ana and Christian continue to work through their differences with someone out for revenge following them about and ruining things for the couple. Despite that ruinous intent the couple succeed in something that even I hadn't expected to happen within the series. Go Ana! Go Christian! Go, Go, Go! Yes, I did a little cheer, and it was worth the letters it took to type it because this book was just so much fun to read and the characters so exciting to read about. I particularly liked the end when we saw a few key points from Christians point of view. I am really sad to see this series end.

Please write another, oh author of good
Edited February 2nd 2015. I would like to add that this is less of a bdsm novel as it is about control, and not listening to your partner. Bdsm is all about safety, comfort and a bit of pain. No one that I have read would ignore safe words blatantly like Mr. Grey. After reading more books on this subject he fails my inspection as a good dominant. My original review stays because it was true. Fifty Shades of Grey was exciting and intense. I did demote the book a star because what Christian did was wrong. So wrong in the extreme. ( )

Well, I'm glad that's over.

I did not think it was possible for the series to be worse. The first to books in the series were quick reads, but this one dragged.

After all the hell Christian and Ana have gone through to get where they are now (which is married and on their honeymoon), I knew there was no way James was going to tear the two of them apart. The book read like a soap opera, the smallest of issues and insecurities became the elephants in the room. Everything was so obviously contrived it hurt to read.

When all is said and done, every good scene in this series was buried under so many feet of poor grammar and contrived character interactions that I just couldn't enjoy it. Maybe someone with a better hand at writing should rewrite this story, or is that too much FanFic Inception? ( )
