That being said, I did still enjoy reading Fifty Shades Darker. I was expecting it would be darker in terms of the BDSM content in it, and was glad to see I was wrong. While the book has it's issues, and is from Ana's perspective, it is good. I will still be reading Fifty Shades Free, and may post on it as well, but here is information on the second book. For those of you interested, the second movie is coming out around Valentine's Day again this year.
Christian realized at the end of the previous book that he desperately wants and needs Ana. This leads him to the decision that he should make a new arrangement with Ana - one that let's them both get what they need, and one that she can't turn down. He decides he loves her too much to hurt her like he did again, and offers her the relationship she wants, though she no longer wants simply a boyfriend. She helps him understand how they can use BDSM in a more loving way, and he agrees to forgo punishing her.
There are issues from both his ex-domme, Elena, and one of his ex-subs, Leila. While Ana freaks out about one of the issues with Leila, all things considered I think Christian handled the situations well enough. There are also issues with her work as a publishing assistant. They lose Charlie Tango, worrying Ana and his family far more than Christian expected, and he proposes to her. While we can't read much about the wedding or wedding plans, they do get married at the end of the book, and Freed starts out with them on their honeymoon.
