Sweet, smexy read!
I must say that I really enjoy Freed. It was a quick, fun read that was surprisingly low on drama, considering all that I had expected to happen in it. I know I should never assume anything, but a long lost sister popping up and the guy you’re “seeing” is actually a “babysitter” hired by your over-protective father? You cannot tell me that you wouldn’t expect the angst to be coming out to play, but it didn’t really and I thoroughly enjoy it.
I loved Juliette. I really did. Despite being sheltered her entire life and never wanting for anything, she was far from being a rich, society brat. She was kind, compassionate and determined. Part of why I liked her so much was how she went about going to look for her sisters. She didn’t just go in guns blazing. It was more of a series of cautious leaps of faith that were practical while helping her break out of the cage she’d been in.
Braden was a really good man, and I don’t say this because there isn’t anything else to say about the man. He really was a good, solid human being. Family came first for him and though he had a lot weighing on his shoulders, he did his best to take it stride and not take it out on others. When he could get a minute to breath, he was funny, charming and smexy.
Juliette and Braden’s journey was a fun one, even with the whole ‘your dad hired me to watch you’ thing in the mix. It was sweet, smexy and there was a flow to their interactions from the start that I really liked. Things move relatively quickly, but it all just worked for me. The smexy was hot and they just got each other. When the truth comes out about Braden, I was pleasantly surprised with the path it took and am happy with how it all worked out in the end for them.
I got sucked in to this one from the start and simply enjoyed everything from Juliette & Braden’s romance to Juliette reuniting with her sisters and how all of the other things going on in this book worked out, especially the fact that Andi will be getting her own HEA. So, bring on Dream!
