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 requires 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.

    I wish I could have the time back that I invested in this book. It was gruelling to get through but I kept hoping it might get better. It didn’t. Miserable is the only description I can give this pathetic story.

    I am disappointed with the ending. It is a shame that I would have to buy another book to get the rest of the story.

    I enjoyed this book enough that I immediately purchased the second. I agree with some reviews that there could have been less of what was going on in Gwen's head to shorten things. In the end I felt like I knew everyone and that matters more to me. It kept my attention.
  • The book was too wordy and had too many speculations.

    By Annmric8
    Gwen worked at a nightclub. During a night shift, she met JC in the VIP room. Gwen was an uptight and rule following manager, so when she caught JC entertaining guests with nudity and cigars she tried to shut it down. Norma and Gwen were sisters. Norma raised both Gwen and Ben after their mother died. There father was in jail. The siblings were close. Norma and Gwen lived together. The siblings had issues with their father that later caused some unnecessary distractions in the story and led to some unnecessary drama. JC noticed that Gwen was uptight and lacked spontaneity so he offered to teach her how to relax. Of course, JC construed a sexual arrangement with Gwen to meet up once a week. The arrangement was designed to help Gwen seek sexual freedom from her controlled prison of uptightness. This was a two part series and a Free Me was part one. This story was told from Gwen's perspective. Personally this story could have been wrapped up in one book. I found this book too wordy. Gwen's character spent a great deal of time speculating about other characters behaviors and actions. I found the supporting characters to be distractions for unnecessary drama. Gwen's character had a tendency to over analyze her arrangement with JC. The story had one too many plot lines. The story was over the top. It went far beyond the call of a weekly booty call. The extreme measures the author went to prove love and then test the love was ridiculous. Gwen's overactive mind made reading challenging. I was tense and stressed a good portion of the story. The only time Gwen was not stressed was during sex. The author took a stretch of the imagination with the words, "my heart is open" because what followed those words were undoubtedly the most unimaginable statement made by JC. JC's decision at the end ruined the story for me. I was convinced he was sincere with helping Gwen deal with her inability to relax. What I did not count on was his secrecy to have such an impact on their relationship. His secret changed how I felt about him and when he got drunk and made a rash decision I lost respect for him.
  • Amazing love story.

    This book had my on the edge the entire time!!! I love JC and Gwen and can't wait to start reading 'Find Me'.
  • Be patient about this one

    By Hugefunie
    It was lacking a lot of things including one most important, plot! Also, I couldn't feel the connection between Gwen and JC until the very end. But Find Me did a better work so I'm glad I stick thro. And I get to see more Hudson!😍😍😍😍
  • Hot and Combustable!!!

    By SOldfather
    I am so glad I waited to finish Free Me two days before the second book Find Me comes out. Holy moly Laurelin, but you sucked me into another story! Initially, Gwen was difficult to warm up to. She was hard, icy and I wondered how she could be likable. But past hurt and abuse shaped her life and her reactions to relationships. Slowly I warmed to her and her inner strength. I liked JC instantly, because he was HOT! But I worried how he and Gwen would relate. Then I remembered how Laurelin weaves her novels. It’s like she says “wait for it, have patience, it’s coming later.” And oh did it! JC and Gwen were combustible together. I pulled for their relationship to be more than casual sex from the very beginning. I felt Gwen needed JC. What I didn’t expect was JC to need Gwen. That just made the story even better. With somewhat of a cliffhanger, I am ready for Find Me to release on August 24th. I have to know if JC really is what he told Gwen, will Gwen move on as she promised JC, will her father show back up and is she in any danger from JC’s associates? No doubt Laurelin will deliver in the second book as she did in Free Me.
