Today I have the awesome privilege to share with you Laurelin Page’s follow-up to Free Me. This highly anticipated sequel does not disappoint. With all the suspense and steamy sex that was in the first and add in more drama than one person should experience allows for a wild ride that will leave you extremely satisfied. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.
Gwen Anders came to The Sky Launch to begin fresh, away from the horrors of her past. She fit in quickly, becoming good friends with her co-manager, Alayna Withers and the owner of the club, Hudson Pierce. Though the circumstances that brought her here were not the best, she’s never felt more at home.
But starting a new life means letting go. And there are some things she doesn’t want to leave behind – like JC, the man who taught her how to let loose. The man she wasn’t supposed to fall in love with. The man she doesn’t want to lose.
Now, with the reason she ran still a threat, Gwen fears she’ll never be able to move on completely. And if she does, can she still hold out hope that JC loves her enough to come and find her?
Gwen has tried to remain loyal to JC for the past year. The problem is that she wasn’t. Though she was unsure she would ever see him again, she held out hope even when she was sleeping with her best friend’s brother in law. When she finally does see JC again it is on tv and he is testifying at the trial for his former fiancée’s murderer. Not being able to resist the draw she goes to see him at the trial. She is convinced he is past her until he surprises her at work. Though Gwen still wants to be mad for the past year she can’t help but feel the pull that JC still has on her. Can Gwen and JC really make a life full of secrets work or will past mistakes and secrets destroy their love?
This was a fantastic sequel to Free Me. The same amount of suspense and steam poured through the pages. Getting to finally know who JC is and all of his secrets was both satisfying and terrifying. The twists and turns that were thrown at Gwen were masterfully woven and added a lot of depth to Gwen’s character. We really get to see how she would react to things that she thought she’d never have to deal with. I think the best thing was it wasn’t just ordinary trials and tribulations. There was an added bonus of always something more to the problems for them to overcome. Overall, Laurelin Page out did herself with this sequel. I can’t wait to read more.
Laurelin Paige is the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, 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 Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.
