But I forced an encouraging smile, preferring her spicy talk to her baby disappointment. You two have sex drives that are insatiable. He can go forever. This morning, he woke me up before five, and he still was only half dressed when his driver rang the bell at a quarter to eight. I can barely look at him with all I know as it is. It was my turn to groan. Though, perhaps that was just because of their differences in age. And that little extracurricular arrangement was not one I was sharing with anyone, least of all my coworker.
It was embarrassing and wrong—on so many levels, not just because of the years between he and me. I felt guilty. As I should. I should feel every rotten feeling from shame to disgust to remorse.
Laynie would tell me I was being ridiculous. And maybe a part of me agreed. Into my bed. She really was thoughtful to try like she did. It was just still difficult for me to know how to deal with people who cared about me besides Norma and Ben.
Which was silly, probably. And that took getting used to. That meant I was off the hook, and I willed my attention to turn to work. I let out a long breath and opened up the shared folder on my computer labeled Restaurant.
While I was mainly in charge of operations and Laynie was in charge of marketing and human resources, we found our best innovative ideas happened together. So even though she primarily worked days and I worked nights, we made sure our hours overlapped several times a week so that we could collaborate and touch base.
Friday nights we ran the club together. He was as controlling as she was obsessive. Somehow the two made it work. Perfectly, even. However they did it, I was grateful that we had shifts together. Besides being a good friend, she was an amazing businesswoman. Presently, we were looking at chefs. The recurring date had strengthened our friendship. Norma, my sister, sometimes joined us, and every now and then Ben and Eric as well. It was a night that I looked forward to with as much intensity as I dreaded the loneliness of the Wednesday night that preceded it.
Obsessing again. It has a nice ring. But I had no strength when it came to JC, and Alayna knew it. I twisted my seat toward her and glared. She was staring out into space though and missed my evil eye.
Jordan and Gwen. I like that. Real catchy. Do you want me with him or not? I mean, I want you happy. So I wish he would come the fuck back from wherever he disappeared to and do that. But then I meet Reeve. And just WOW!! And then I finally meet JC. And you know what. Laurelin has turned me into a total book whore. And I'm ok with that!! It's the way she writes them. The way each and everyone just simply casts a spell on you.
I'm happy to say that JC has been added to this group! He is guarded as well. You know he's hiding secrets too. Which is why he is probably drawn to Gwen. They are alike in certain ways. I love how he calls her out. And how he breaks down her walls. He is filled with such raw compassion, emotion, oozes sexuality.
And he is exactly what Gwen needs.
When Gwen's horrific past comes back. It is JC who is there to protect her. Comfort her. Heal her. And this is that pivotal point where your heart just squeezes. And you feel hopeful for these two. But you know how when you let your guard down, you sometimes get knocked on your ass.. And this is where my heart broke. For both of them.
And this is where I will end my review because I don't do spoilers. I will not rob you of the emotions I felt while reading this. Laurelin's writing is beautiful, heartbreaking, haunting.
Her words stick with you. They make you feel all the things!! I can't even count the times I broke out in goosebumps from her words. There's a reason why 2 of Laurelin's books that I've read this year are on my all time favorite list. It's because she is one of the most brilliant writers. If you have not yet 1-clicked this gem of a book, you truly must! View all 4 comments.

View all 3 comments. Jan 17, Angie McLain rated it it was amazing Shelves: Free Me is a spin off novel and the first book in a new duet from the bestselling, totally talented Laurelin Paige. We know very little about her, except that she is hiding from someone or something. I fell completely in love with Gwen and JC. Gwen is a woman that has tried desperately to put her troublesome past behind her.
Her sister Norma, and her brother Ben have had a pretty crappy childhood. Suffering from a violent and abusive father, they are closely bonded, and would do whatever it takes to protect each other. The relationship between them is genuine and touching. She fears it in some ways I think. She only needs them. She loves her job at the Eighty Eighth Floor, she gets along well with her co-workers, admires her boss and, most important of all, she remains in control at all times.
It was steady and rhythmic. Managing gave me the opportunity to be no-nonsense and harsh. It was how I preferred to be. Everything goes up in smoke when JC, handsome stranger, brash, and completely arrogant appears in her life. He is a contradiction. Gwen is completely unprepared for the chaos that erupts when this man makes his appearance in her life. Caught up in the whirlwind that is JC, Gwen begins to question everything.
Why should she have to be so uptight all the time? What would it feel like to let go, even for a few moments? Is it possible for her to be happy? Is it possible to be free? To be that unrestrained? I had every feel possible, because it was impossible not to. Her storytelling and characters are magnificent. The one that everyone is, once again, going to be shouting, raving and gushing about.
She somehow always manages to make her next book better than the last. Beware there is a pretty huge cliff hanger at the end, when I flipped the page and realized it was over, I wanted to launch my kindle against the room! Free Me, is completely seductive, impassioned, captivating and devastating. View 2 comments. Jan 20, Jacqueline's Reads rated it it was amazing Shelves: She manages one of the hottest clubs. She meets JC, a regular, who likes to rent out the private room.
A private room with topless women and drunken men. Yet I love it. JC is sexy, rich and arrogant. He loves women. He likes to watch them, touch them and have sex with them. I love how Gwen and JC first meet! I was embarrassed for Gwen. JC notices Gwen and thinks she is beautiful, a little too straight lace, but sees something in her.
Then things get really really really hot. I thought the banter in the beginning was completely funny and I laughed so many times. Gwen puts a lot of pressure on herself. When she gets a little too stressed she goes to JC to help her be less stress … by having sex with her. I promise. I loved reading how Gwen tries push JC as well.
The pace works for me and I get so much character development, buildup and just good meat. Audio The Audio version of Free me is fantastic. She does great voice variations and she keeps you completely engrossed in the read. I had my speaker on at times and my husband was getting turned on! If you like the Fixed Trilogy you will love Free Me. If you want to try a Laurelin Paige book, start with Free Me. Series compelte. Kindle-freebies currently over books https: View all 10 comments.
Mar 11, Beverly rated it really liked it. Gwen Anders is a survivor. After her abusive childhood she has learned how to not just survive, but thrive. The key to her success is control.
One night while working she meets J. Are you ready? He enjoys indulgencing and party lifestyle. He is immediately attracted to Gwen, but notices how reserved she is. Despite that he sees something in her, a part of her that is dying to be set free. He offers to show Gwen how to let loose. They set all these ground rules to protect themselves, to keep their lives completely separate. But as you can guess things do begin to progress and real feelings develop.
This is not your average sexy story, that was obvious, but I definitely didn't see the twist coming. I will say despite how upset it made me, I am definitely hooked for more! This one is crazy hot, I mean super-hot and of course I loved that. I wish there was more of a story early on and after that ending I am not sure how I feel. I can say one thing, I am dying to see what comes next. I listened to the audio version of this book and really enjoyed it. The female narrator did a great job executing the male and female roles.
I would definitely listen again! Complimentary copy kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. View all 21 comments. I loved the 'Fixed' series by this author, so I had high hopes for this one.
Unfortunately, although this one was good, it failed to meet my expectations. It just didn't rise to the level that 'Fixed on You' did, for me.
Gwen works as a manager at the hottest nightclub in the city. She's emotionally closed-off, standoffish and uptight. A stickler for the rules, she naturally swings into action when she hears that things are getting a little out of control in one of the club's VIP rooms. JC is the I loved the 'Fixed' series by this author, so I had high hopes for this one.
He is immediately attracted to Gwen, despite her frigid demeanor. One meeting is all it takes for him to decide that he's up for the challenge and he sets out to thaw Gwen's icy exterior. With minimal resistance from Gwen, the two decide to enter into a weekly, sex-only arrangement. While the sex was pretty hot, I never really connected with this story or the characters.
I was over half-way through before I felt minimally vested in the story. Once it got going, it was good, but not great. Then the story is put on "hold" until the second book is released in the series. No major cliffhanger, but no satisfying resolution either. I might continue the series at a later date, but it won't be a top priority for me.
As an aside, I alternated between reading the Kindle version and listening to the Audible version. The narrator did a great job, so if you're going to give this one a try, the audiobook is worth a try.
Review-Jo Facbook: As a fan of Laurelin Paige's "The Fixed Trilogy", I have been excited to begin this spin off series ever since it was first released. This week, I finally got the chance and I'm happy to say that I was not disappointed. Yet again, Laurelin has delivered a fantastic and addictive series and I can't wait for more.
I fell into him. I melted. And he melted into me. Filling my spaces, smothering my emptiness. Making me whole. Making me free. This spin off series centred around Gwen.
If you've read "The Fixed Trilogy", you may remember Gwen as Norma's sister, the girl who went to work in The Sky Launch alongside Alayna but to be honest, you really do not need to have read that series first. Following a traumatic childhood, Gwen had learned to hide her emotions well. To most people she was closed off, refusing to open her heart to anyone. Gwen was happy to live her life without any kind of relationship so when she first met J.
C, she refused to give into the attraction that she felt for him and walked away. While really attractive men usually had no effect on me whatsoever, this one did.
And that C being the relentless man he was offered Gwen an arrangement that she couldn't refuse. An arrangement that suited her perfectly. A chance of a relationship based on sex and nothing else.
No emotions involved so no one would get hurt. Exactly the kind of relationship that Gwen could handle It won't be pretty. There is nothing you could do to make me fall in love with you. C was a mystery. For starters, he refused to share his real name or anything else about him. Despite the mystery, I did really like him. He appeared to be a good guy and he was very sexy, but that didn't sway my judgement at all! C was caring and thoughtful and I had a good feeling about him. I truly thought he was a man that Gwen could trust and I was certain that he wouldn't break her heart despite his secrets.
What was he hiding? I was desperate to find out.
He made me feel wanted. If only she could fix the inside of me as easily as she addressed the outside. No, I had to be the one to fix this mess.
I wanted theories confirmed. He can run all he wants. I have more respect for myself than that. I respect you too. He was dangerous, yes. Dangerous to me. Not like that. Not the kind of hurt that anyone else could see. Just…being bold enough to do it. Another sip of scotch. Another full listen to the old song on repeat. This time when the silent pause came at the end, I put down my glass and reached over for the phone instead.
I turned off the music, pulled up my contacts and only shivered slightly when I found his name. Two weeks had passed. But it might as well be now. I hit the CALL button and waited.
It rang once. It was after midnight here.
Another ring. Was he alone? One more ring. Then his voice. His voicemail, actually. Still, somehow it was disappointing. Maybe not. Probably not. The beep sounded and caught me off guard. But I was ready with what I wanted to say. I know about the file you have on me. We should talk. It was Monday evening and wrapping things up after a hectic afternoon had taken longer than planned.
It was hard enough getting everything done in a short holiday week. It had been three days now since Audrey had arrived. Three days and no return call. Or rather, I was trying as hard as possible not to think about that.
