Story is only O.K. The author has a terrible tendency to repeat herself in her writing. It becomes more & more irritating! The narrator completely ruined what little enjoyment the book series had to offer. Ultimately, this book & series left me wanting back every second I spent listening to it.
Books are my escape. Some books are even more inventive with someone else to make the right decisions on tones and inflection.
I love that with whisper sync I can go back and forth. In this case however, I found the reader to be a little to Valley Girl and naive. Normally, I love Becca Battoe, but on this series I just couldn't agree with the tone used.
The story is unexpected. I love a good romance, but this is not what I expected.

Series: Fifty Shades Book #3
"Fifty Shades: Freed" by E. L. James was the conclusion to this 'Fifty Shades Series' and what a read it was. I was somewhat sad to see it end. Truly this author has given us all something to think about as she had truly shared her writing ability as well as her 'imagination with the world.' All three of these books were some read like I have never read before and in the end it all makes sense of why Christian was the way he was. And let me not leave his Anastasia. Wow! she was really something else. I am so glad all ended well for them. Do I have a favorite novel ... no, I like them all ...what's not to be 'Grey, Dark but in the end finally FREED! Great job to this author!

I've listened to all 3 of the trilogy and Becca Battoe's is the BEST! Love her voice and she is an amazing reader and you feel like she IS the real character, not just reading the story. I would be the first to listen to another one of her books.
Sweet and sexy!
Yes, so easy to listen anytime.
Christian, he is just nuts.
Both, and very dirty.
Pretty dirty book but still good!
New to Audible, but already addicted.
This book seemed to have more of a story line to bring everything together.
I did, but I felt the ending seemed rushed and another book could have probably made it better.
Anastasia's self esteem issues and her need to "fix" broken people.
I was pleased with the ending.
Becca Battoe does a great job.
After being verbally, literally, and intellectually assaulted from the first 'book' and not finishing the second, I could not bring myself to listen to the third.
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.
This book of the series was very disappointing. Most of this book is very contrived and predictable, getting out of the basic storyline of love, sex, and enchantment to trying and make it an adventure novel. The end of the book just seemed to be that the author was required to submit "X" number of pages and had to fill in, so wrote pieces of Christian's inner dialogue.
