Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the kind that makes her obsessive and stalker-crazy. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she’s determined to break down the remaining walls between them so they can build a foundation that’s based on more than just amazing sex. Except Hudson’s not the only one with secrets.

With their pasts pulling them into a web of unfounded mistrust, Alayna turns to the one person who knows Hudson the best—Celia, the woman he almost married. Hoping for insight from someone who understands all sides of the story, Alayna forms a bond with Celia that goes too far—revealing things about Hudson that could end their love for good.

This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn’t spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway…

Blog Tour Review: Kirsty Lander

Oh I really do love these two. ♥

Back in Fixed on You I fell for not only the characters and their flaws, but the actual writing. It's hard to believe that Laurelin Paige has no other books up here on GR, how are these the only books she has written? Her stories are so addicting, with such flawed characters, and not just your usual flaws. They are unusual and not so typical with what we are used to. It makes for a very different and interesting read.

“You’re the first person I’ve ever met who makes me believe I might not be crazy. 
It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

Alyana and Hudson are still struggling to deal with their past demons - Alayna with her stalking, and Hudson with his manipulation. On top of dealing with the past, they are trying to move forward in to a 'normal' healthy relationship. I loved watching their relationship grow from strength to strength, witnessing them both dealing with all the 'newness' of it was refreshing. They weren't perfect, they didn't think they had all the answers.. they knew they would mess things up at times, they know certain decisions they were making were wrong, yet they continued to do so. 

“Okay, I’d never be a normal girl and Hudson would never be a normal guy, 
but perhaps we’d found the closest thing to normal that we’d ever be capable of achieving. 
And it was pretty damn good.”

All of the old players are back in this instalment, Celia in particular playing a big role. I didn't like her in Fixed on You, I couldn't put my finger on what it was exactly but there was something about her that just rubbed me the wrong way. I felt like she had an agenda, and this feeling carried on through the majority of this book. I knew she was up to something, I just didn't know what so when I found out to say I was shocked would be an understatement. I never saw it coming.

I don't know where the story is going to go in the third book, but I am positive that Laurelin Paige won't take it anywhere unnecessary. I am never sat here rolling my eyes whilst reading, all of the situations these characters find themselves in are believable and have a purpose. None of it is thrown in just for the sake of angst, and that I really appreciate.

"I need you to know that I'm trying and I'm not going to stop trying until I get there. 
Do you hear me? Don't give up on me."

Author Bio:

Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Mad Men and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine. She is represented by Bob Diforio of D4EO Literary Agency.
