Title: Free Me
Series: The Found Duet Book One
Author: Laurelin Paige
Publication Date: December 9, 2014
Summary: 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.

♥MY REVIEW♥ by Colleen
As a huge fan of Laurelin’s Fixed Trilogy, I jumped at the chance to read Free Me. Familiar characters with new stories, romance, and hot sex ruled as I threw myself headfirst into the book.
Laurelin created a book with strong characters and an even stronger storyline. I adore how she writes about damaged men and women looking for healing and redemption. I especially enjoy her alpha males. Hudson was one of my first experiences with a dominant male character (whom I adored); J.C. is no different. Can these alphas be complete jerks? Absolutely! However, typically these men are protecting the women in their lives and ultimately seeking redemption. This fact is what draws me to them.
The storyline involved mystery, love and plenty of panty-melting sex. Gwen and J.C. are off-the-charts combustible together. There was actually a few times a blushed a little – I loved it!
I am looking forward to the second book in the series and even more to come from Laurelin in the future!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
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.
