From the NYT bestselling author of the Fixed Trilogy...

I wasn’t supposed to be working the night I met JC.

Before him, I’d been content with the daily grind, managing one of NYC’s top nightclubs. So what if my life didn’t have a happily ever after? I didn’t believe in that anyway.

Then JC showed up.

Sexy, rich and smooth-talking, JC is nothing more than a distraction. I’m not interested in a night-in-shining latex so it’s easy to push the playboy away. Or it is until my life spins unexpectedly out-of-control. Then he’s there for me, offering a new method of survival, one based on following primal urges and desires that require me to abandon my constant need for control.

His no-strings-attached lessons obliterate my carefully built walls. And as I discover freedom, I start to feel things for him that I shouldn’t. Things that make me fear for my newly vulnerable heart. Because JC has secrets of his own, and his secrets don’t want to set him free.

BOOK ONE OF TWO. This series can be read alone or with the Fixed Trilogy.


Gwen Anders Interesting?

Free me is the first book in the Found Duet Series by Laurelin Paige.  This two-part story is a spin of the  fixed Trilogy and follows around Norma Anders  sister Gwen.  I have to say I was not terribly interested in Gwen when I was reading the fixed series and was even less interested in her older sister Norma, but decided to give the Found Duet a try because I wanted to see if it was  before or after Hudson and Alayna got together (I could always go for more of them they are adorable).  To my surprise, it’s a bit of both and I am very pleased.

What surprised me most about Free me was how immersed I got in Gwen’s back story. From the Fixed Trilogy, it did not let on that the Anders family had a hard childhood with an abusive father and that Norma takes care of her siblings. I really liked how they had a backstory that was easy to relate to and believable. I feel like they are hard to come by.

Even more of a shocker was how easy it was for me to get into the book. I loved how I didn’t instantly love JC. I actually thought he was kind of annoying until half way through the book.  He is not the traditional alpha male billionaire that I am accustomed to in these kinds of books, but he gets the job done, makes Gwen fall in love and then breaks her heart.

What I didn’t like about it…

I have never been a fan of reading about a relationship with a bunch of rules.  Every time they have rules they never follow them even at the beginning and the timelines move so fast I am usually left with the annoying feeling of why even bother?

The second thing I did not like was the whole get married to the wrong women thing, I understand JC does crazy things he does not remember when he is drunk but come on now. How does anyone get that black out drunk every time they drink? Then you go off and marry someone else?   To top it all off this all happens after he confesses his love for her and says he wants her to marry him so that she can go into witness protection with him



With all that said overall, the book had a decent pace and Gwen had a good back story that kept me interested.
