Review + Giveaway: Free Me by Laurelin Paige

Her story began long before she started working at The Sky Launch...

Screw fairytales. The only reward Gwen Anders got from her rough childhood was a thick skin and hard heart. She’s content with her daily grind managing a top NYC nightclub—Eighty-Eighth Floor. So hers isn’t a happily ever after. She doesn’t believe in those anyway. 

Then she meets J.C. 

The rich, smooth talking playboy is the sexiest thing that Gwen has ever encountered, but she’s not interested in a night-in-shining latex. But when a family tragedy pushes her to the brink, it’s J.C. who’s there to teach her a new method of survival, one based on following primal urges and desires. His no-strings-attached lessons require her to abandon her constant need for control. Her carefully built walls are obliterated. 

Gwen discovers there’s a beautiful world outside her prison. Freedom is exhilarating—and terrifying. When she starts to feel something for J.C., she fears for her heart. Especially as she realizes that he has secrets of his own. Secrets that don't want to set him free

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


I've been looking forward to Gwen's story since I stumbled upon, read and loved, the Fixed Trilogy. The events in Free Me happen before and (somewhat) during what is going on in the Fixed Trilogy. So yes, like suggested above, you can read Free Me as a standalone, but isn't it fun to squeeze every little bit that you can out of these connected characters and settings?

Anyway... with Free Me you are going to get a good dose of a stubborn, yet lovable woman, a tight-lipped, yet kindhearted man, their crazy hot sexy times, and a whole lot of mystery. I was expecting the sexy times, but all the mystery was a surprise! Just as some questions were being answered, even more questions would pop into my head... I'm not trying to be vague, I just don't want to ruin anything for future readers.

Laurelin Paige took what I knew was going to be a good story, based on what I had read from the Fixed Trilogy, and turned it into more. This is a story about strength, survival, family, loyalty, and love. Free Me shows us a more in depth look into Gwen and her family and introduces us to the intriguing as hell JC, and just when you feel like things are really gearing up and going somewhere, BOOM!... it takes a bit of a turn and you're left yearning for the book 2, Find Me. I seriously cannot wait until I can get back into their world and figure out what the heck is going on and how it all unfolds for everyone!

Laurelin Paige is the NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Fixed Trilogy. She's a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there's kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn't seem to complain, however. When she isn't reading or writing sexy stories, she's probably singing, watching Mad Men and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine.
