“I can easily divide my life into two parts—before her and after.”
Hudson Pierce has led a life few others could even imagine. With money and power at his fingertips, he’s wanted for almost nothing. He’s never experienced love, however, and he’s seen few examples of it in his dysfunctional family. The ridiculous notion of romance has always intrigued him. He’s studied it, controlled it, manipulated it, and has yet to understand it.
Until he meets Alayna Withers.
Now, the games he’s played in his quest for comprehension can finally come to an end. Or are they just beginning?
Told from his point of view, Hudson fills the holes in his love story with Alayna Withers. His past and relationship with his long-time friend Celia is further revealed and light is shed on his actions during his courtship with Alayna.
MUST BE READ AFTER THE FIXED TRILOGY.
Hudson is the fourth book in Fixed series by Laurelin Paige and it was told in Hudson’s point of view. I was both excited and nervous when I heard about Hudson. I mean, come on, being in his head is both incredible and a little creepy place to be. One would think that we’ll get bored reading the same story all over again just in different point of view, one would be wrong. Miss Paige successfully making it like a fresh and new tale. The book alternates between the past and the presents. It gives us Hudson’s side of the previous three books with the addition of his emotional growth from way back when he was a teenager.
I adored Hudson Alexander Pierce so much. He’s one of the hottest, sexiest alpha males out there and just when we think we know everything there is to know about Hudson in the three previous books, turns out we had just scratched the surface. We get to know him better and in an entirely different light in this book. It shows Hudson before and after Alayna, his history with Celia, his relationship with his family (I really love Hudson and Mirabelle’s relationship!), all his inner battles, his lack of feelings and my favorite; how Alayna changes his life. At first, it was hard to read how much of an asshole he was in the past, but at the same time it was good to go back in time and see how the whole game/experiment thing with Celia happened. Celia played a big part in his past and as it turns out, his future too. Her character intrigues me in this book. She’s one of those characters that you want to hate, but then you find out why she became who she is and you can’t help but feel sorry for her.
Laurelin Paige did a great job with Hudson. It was just fascinating to be inside Hudson’s mind as he battled with his heart and mind. In this book we also find out just how much she loved Alayna, the struggle and the effort he made to become the man worthy of her. I think the way he sees her from the moment they met is beautiful. I love how he was enchanted by her and how protective he was of her right from the beginning. If you ever doubted Hudson while reading Alayna’s side of the story, this book will help put you at ease.
Overall I think Hudson is a great addition to the Fixed series. Like the other three books, this book has the perfect amount of drama, heartache, romance and (hold onto your panties, ladies) all kinds of sexy and steamy scenes. I couldn’t have asked for a better ending for this series, it was epic, and the epilogue is perfection. 4 Amazeball stars!!!
“Mon amor. Mon precieux,’ I say at her ear. ‘Mon cheri. Mon bien-aime. ‘My love. My precious. My cherished. My beloved.”
“Because I realise I’d rather live through your betrayal and end up with you than never to have gotten you at all.”
“Because when you love someone, their world interests you more than your own.”
“We fit together. We fix each other. We make each other whole.”
“I begin and end with her. It’s as simple and as profound as that. Our worlds have entwined and wrapped around each others completely. Then shaped into something new and fixed and whole. There is no longer her story or mine. But now and always, only ours.”
