Her story started 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.
This series can be read alone or with the Fixed Trilogy.

BOOK & AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 5 STARS
It’s amazing when you find an author that gives you all the feels with every book she writes. Laurelin Paige does that to me. Blia recommended me to read The Fixed Series last year and I loved it. I remember I was a mess when I was reading those books. It had so much drama, and love, and the sex was amazing, and I utterly loved it. I felt the same with Free Me. The book and audiobook were just amazing.
I knew Gwen in the Fixed Series. She was co-manager with Alayna, and to be honest, I didn’t like her, I suspected about her but then again, I suspected about everyone in The Fixed Series. Despite I didn’t like her, I was so intrigued about her past, what had happened in her previous job that made her so closed to people. I have to thank Laurelin for writing this spinoff, because Gwen is an amazing character and her story is so good.
I liked Gwen from page one in this book. She was a broken woman, with so much walls to protect herself. And she did very well protecting herself for 10 years, she had everything under control, but she wasn’t happy. She was trapped in her own bubble of safety. And then, she met JC and he rocked her world. It all started because Gwen felt she was losing control of her life and she needed the control back, and JC was the right one to give it back to her. His methods were very sexy, orgasmiscally sexy – I would like that for me too please –. I wasn’t surprised that what started just a sex, an arrangement to free her and give her control back, ended up in love, and what I loved the most about this book is that her way to handle things were so human, she wasn’t sure about how he was feeling, she wasn’t sure about if this arrangement was the best after her deep feelings for him.
One of the rules about their arrangement was: No details about each other. Thus: SECRETS ALL OVER THE PLACE! Throughout the book, I could know Gwen’s secrets, her past was awful. I wanted to get her out of that horrible memories and hold her forever. Thank God she had her brother and sister, they had to live so much together and they stayed together to be strong, but…. She needed JC to be complete. JC’s secrets were not revealed, just a few details that weren’t enough and I expect to know everything about him in the next book of the series, Find Me.
The narration of Tanya Eby was amazing. Her tone of voice was low and sexy, and her voices for every character were fitting for each of them. I particularly loved the voice she made for JC, it sounded sexy, and strong, and when they were making love, it was the best.
Thanks to Laurelin for telling me her dream cast. Thanks to JT for making a video with Scarlette.
