Free Me by Laurelin Paige

The Found Duet #1

If you have read the Fixed series, you knew Gwen. She is a manager at The Sky Launch who was hired after David left for greener pastures. We know she had to leave her job but not why. We find out in this story. Gwen is emotional shut down. She meets JC at Eighty-Eighth Floor, the club she works at. He says she needs to relax. That made her think.

One night she gets some bad news and JC is there. She has sex with him to make herself feel better. A couple of days later, he tracks her down and asks her to have a sex only relationship with him. She decides that she wants that. Her sister, Norma, tells her she needs to chill.

But where will this sex only relationship end?

I loved this story.  My heart broke for Gwen.

From the author:
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.
