Review: Free Me by Laurelin Paige

Ready? Leggo.

Free Me

Title: Free Me

Author: Laurelin Paige

Published: 2015

Read: 10 July 2016

My Rating: ★★★★★★★★★✩
9 out of 10!


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.


(I always try my best to give a spoiler-free review! So you can enjoy reading the book and my review with ease 😊 spoilers marked with *)



This book had such a huge impact on me that I’m now left throbbing. My heart, I mean.

This book is about lust, unconventional love, freeing yourself to start living again and of course two people finding each other. I really love, enjoy and appreciate how author Laurelin Paige writes and brings out emotions in me. My heart was literally wrenching half of the time.

The way she describes emotions with the underlying mysteriousness that’ll always be there on your mind unconsciously.

You’ll be interacting with the book a lot (which I’ve never said before). By trying to uncover or theorise the secrets and also trying to understand each character and get they behave in the manner that they do.

I think that the author sends a very loud message of love and how unconventionally love doesn’t necessarily build on knowing each other but exploring the raw emotions as strangers.
Though this is a 5 stars for me, there’s alway room for improvement. I think that the anticipation of what secrets JC was keeping that even though it was finally revealed, it was kind of a anticlimactic moment. Or maybe even a “Okay. Now what” moment. I mean, I can’t tell the author to change the ‘secret’ but something can be done about that 🙂


Nonetheless, really a to-read and to-recommend. Next book we go!
