5.  Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey are not in this book. 4.   Rhiannon doesn’t annoy the crap out of me. 3.    When I “turn page” in On Fallen Wings, it’s because I’m anxious to find out what happens next.  When I “turn page” in Fifty Shades of Grey, it’s because I’m trying to get to the more interesting stuff. 2.     […]

Fifty Shades Freed (Chapters 1-7)

Chapter 1 The story begins with Ana and Mr. Grey on the final leg of their honeymoon. Honeymoon?  Holy crap!  What?  No wedding?  No pantiless bride in an overpriced, designer wedding gown?  No sex in a hidden corner of the banquet hall, in between dances?  Serious pouty face.  🙁 Turn page. Ooh!  A flash back!  That works. It’s just after […]
