Publisher's 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 JC.

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 JC 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 JC, 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.

I could not take it.

I am a big fan of this author. and I really was enjoying the series. but I could not finish this book. and I won't read the 2nd.

the constant internal monalouge was completely overdone. the love interest was confusing. and I got through 15 chapters and could not connect with these characters. this was not a win.

I Feel Cheated

Spoiler Alert

This was my first book by this author. I was impressed with her writing style, characterization, story development. It's listed as contemporary romance, but it's clearly erotica, though I found it to be very tastefully done. The narrator did a great job. But it's not a romance. Also, I do not like soap operas, television series, or the like. It seems publishers are now extending this "cliff-hanger" strategy to get people to buy more books.

I have nothing against book series, but I do expect each book to have a complete and satisfying ending in its own right. This book did not. The reader is left completely hanging, with no seeming choice but to buy the next book. It's the second book like this I've read in recent months (different authors), and quite frankly, I feel cheated. Cheated and misled enough to vow NOT to buy the next book in the series. Or any others, sadly, by this author, who really did impress me with her storytelling abilities.

Would you buy a paperback with the last chapter cut out? Pay full price for only half a movie? Doubtful. But I paid full price for a book that's really only half a story. The definition of a romance: there is a satisfying, HEA or Happy for Now. None of that here.

The publisher's strategy is obviously to lure me into buying the next book, to find out if J.C. ever does come back for Gwen, and how it all plays out. But I'm just annoyed enough to do precisely the opposite. This marketing strategy does not work on me. I'm certain I can't be the only one who feels this way.

Does J.C. come back for Gwen? Is there a HEA? Is this truly a romance and not just poetically written erotica?

Quite frankly, I don't care.

THIS WASN'T JUST GOOD... IT WAS G R E A T

I'm going to review both books in this Duet partly because I just couldn't wait to hear more when it came to the dreaded cliffhanger so I dove straight into book 2 - and partly because the glowing previous reviews have said it all before.... this was, for me, a perfect 10 star listen and a wonderful wild ride.

And wow, what a ride it was...... I feel like I've been to Hell and back (several times) but this was a powerful, emotional, heartbreaking, very very hot, tumultuous and drama-filled ride that had twists, shocks, tension, danger, secrets by the bucketful and, in the epicentre, was a beautiful twisted romance that, thankfully, withstood it all. Gwen was a strong heroine, yes she was mixed up and emotionally closed off which only took one handsome, charismatic and sexy Playboy named JC to break through her carefully erected walls. But it would take Gwen far longer to break through his..... and to finally have all the answers too.

Great story told from Gwen's POV (except the touching Epilogue) good narration by Tanya Eby as usual as I really enjoy her male voices and the cherry on top of this wonderful cake was that I didn't have to wait weeks, months or a year for the second book, nope... just a few seconds, hit play and let the unfolding drama and catapulting emotions resume..... purrrfection.

Worth a credit? Oh boy YES it was and these characters, together with their beautiful and torturous romance that I've lived with now for hours and hours, will haunt me for quite some time and I'm sure it'll take me all day to come down from my book high too

Part 1 of Good story premise but slow

This audio needed a dual narration and point of view. It also was very slow. It is a spin off of the Fixed series.

Whine, moan, whine

Holy cow, the heroine is a horrible whiner. The narrator highlights that fact by whining as well. No, just no. I did finish the book but I had to take breaks because I was grumbling "stop whining!" too often.

I'm free at last

The narrators voice was terrible. The story was decent. The twist was stupid with JC. it seemed like an afterthought.

Amazing story

Free me was a book I didn't expect to love so much! I mean, I love Fixed series and Laurelin is one of my favorite authors, but this story was so good! Love the characters, Gwen and JC are perfect for each other, and despite the didn't know the details of their lifes, they knew each other, so well that they fall in love with each other
I totally relate to Gwen. That has happened to me, I mean the "let's just have sex and don't fall in love" arrangement. And guess how it ended up!
I totally understand Gwen's decision at the end of the book and maybe that's why I am not so upset about the cliffhanger, because IT IS A CLIFFHANGER, ugh! But I am ok with it. Now I only have to wait for the next book
Amazing performance in the narration. Love the voice of the girl, it fitted Gwen's personality. And her voices for the male characters was good too.
100% recommended!
