When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees.
Now, Ana and Christian have it all - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own identity. And Christian must overcome his compulsion to control as he wrestles with the demons of a tormented past.
Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to make Ana’s deepest fears turn to reality.

This book was very tame compared to the first two. After reading the first two, which were very intense, this one is a major let down and is just outright boring.
Bared to You
I hated her "guy" voice for Mr. Gray.
I really liked the first book while Darker was also pretty good but this was the worse by far. Not worth listening to unless you are like me and just have to finish a series before you could listen to anything else.
Yes, It was great being able to listen to the story being read to me while I worked around the house.
I loved the very exciting conclusion to the story and that all unanswered questions through out all three books were answered. I also LOVED that the epilog included the first chapter of the first book being retold from Christian's point of view.
All three of her readings of the Fifty Shades trilogy were very good through out.
Crop or Flogger?
This was one outstanding trilogy. I loved it start to finish. I hope E.L. James writes all three books from Christians point of view.
Was hoping for a fun summer read but this was not it!
The three books were poorly written and though I kept hoping for some semblance of an adequate story line to emerge the plot was weak, the characters repetitive and shallow, the writing juvenile and the repetition hard to take. Even the gratuitous scenes (which is what I'm assuming made these books popular) were repetitive and I was fast forwarding through them by book three!
Yes, because I liked it
Reading the first chapter from Christian's perspective
Christian's view point (at the very end of the book)
When he realized that what happened between him and Mrs Robinson was wrong
Great series, I wouldn't mind reading it again but doing it from his perspective
I will be honest, it took me almost 4 months to get through this last book in the 50 Shades trilogy, and even at that, I wasn't able to completley finish this one. I hate the voice of the narrator, but since I had listened to the other 2 books, I figured I needed to finally hear the end.
Well, I'm sorry to say that the start of it had me lost, with a gap in time so big I thought I missed an entire book in between, and by this book, I could no longer bear to hear the same descriptions of sex and feelings anymore. I finally shut of the book when it got to the 50 shades of Christen because frankly ladies I didn't care! I don't care for the end, and to hear any more about this guy that in book 1 had me at the edge of my seat, I felt smothered by the cloyingly sweet picture perfect ending, and I wanted to gouge my ears out if I had to hear Beccas voice anymore.
For me, 2 was enough, and like they say.. 3 is a crowd. This could have ended after the second book instead of rehashing, and dragging out to the point that it lost my interest.
Not really, it wouldnt be the book it is if I changed things in it. I was that good with my creative imagination I would be an author myself.
The handcuff sex scene during their honeymoon and the fact that he was unhappy about the marks later on.
Irritating, dull, unexciting.
The reader of this series does the book injustice. If I hadn't read it first I never would have gotten past the first chapter of the narration. Why, oh why could the producers not have found a better narrator?
Yes its a good series with a good story line
I like how the end brough it all together
When Anna leaves Christen in Book two, you can see the boy and the man he will become by the end of the series.
I really enjoyed the epilog at the end of this book it lets you see what was going on in Christen mind in each book, and answers a lot of unanswer question we the reader/listeners offen have.
It made me laugh and feel sad....no crying
I'm still listening for the soft porn that everyone has been talking about :)
Over all its a good love story and I enjoyed listening to it
Already did and they were reading your hardcopy, they also enjoyed it.
I didn't read or listen to any other audible books comparable to Fifty Shades Trilogy..
I love to read, so I would have enjoyed the print too. But, this audio was great.
Christian Grey, Ana Steele
When Christian talked to Ana about little blimp.
A beautiful ending to a beautiful series. I picked it up and could not put it down. And now it is over, I feel like I need to read it again to catch all that I might have missed.
I decided that I wanted to also experience this series as the audiobook. At first I did not care for the narrator, she made Ana seem much younger than her 21 years, but after a while she grew on me. This series is even more enjoyable and intense in the audio format. I see myself reliving this series again and again in the future. For those who have gotten caught up in the hype and have not tried it, you are missing a truly beautiful journey of love between two loveable people.
Both Christian and Ana were my favorites, Christian a little more so than Ana. But they both had characteristics that I found loveable and enjoyable.
I didn't particularly care for her at first, her voice made Ana sound younger than she was supposed to be, but it eventually grew on me.
