When unworldly student Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged young entrepreneur Christian Grey, it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably. Now, finally together, they have love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of infinite possibilities. But Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy and being together poses challenges neither of them ever anticipated. Ana must learn to share Christian's opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity, identity, or independence; Christian must overcome his compulsion to control and lay to rest the horrors that blighted his past and haunt his present. But just when it seems that their love can conquer any obstacle, tragedy and fate combine to make Ana's worst nightmares come true.
