To appreciate this book you have to read the first two. Basically, in my opinion, this whole trilogy is about an emotional cripple and the woman who helps him heal and learn to live. Throughout the whole trilogy there is a lot of sex. Initially, it is really dom and sub stuff. But as time gos on they find a balance that works for them. But, if you can look past the sex at the characters, Christian, in the beginning is so emotionally crippled. He doesnt really love anyone, not even himself. He doesnt feel he is worthy of love, a real life or a family of his own. Ana teaches him and heals him. She makes him look at himself and not see the little boy who was abused and who felt unworthy of love. She completes him. I personally found the story very moving. It is an awakening of one mans emotions and you witness him struggling with his demons to become a good husband and father. I really didnt think I was going to like this trilogy when I was reading the first book. But a friend talked me into reading the second and I was ready for the third. The trilogy is outstanding!
I think I have had about enough of sex, fight, make up sex, fight some more, do something really stupid, fight, etc etc.. I am so glad this series is done!!
