Description

This is a full-length companion novel to the New York Times best-selling Fixed Trilogy. It is not meant to be read as a stand-alone. "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. Book One: Fixed On You Book Two: Found in You Book Three: Forever with You Companion: Hudson

FINALLY ALL THE PIECES TO THEIR BITTERSWEET STORY

Now I'll be totally honest, at the start of this listen I really didn't think I was going to like it as I had such fond memories of Hudson and Alayna by the end of their trilogy and this starts off totally different. It portrays Hudson as a manipulative, sadistic, cold-hearted, nasty bastard who, along with his Queen of Bitches friend Celia, planned the terrible hurtful scam against the vulnerable unknowing and innocent Alanya.

It doesn't repeat the story we've already heard, in touches on some scenes, but it's told from Hudson's POV and flashes back and forth in time giving the reasons and history behind why they did what they did and the devastating and heartbreaking consequences that followed after their twisted, bitter and damaged minds fixed onto Alayna for their next 'emotional experiment'. But, as the story unfolds, it explains just why they are both so emotionally broken and why they are playing with other people's lives and fills in the gaps from the other side of the story.

It's raw, powerful, gritty, terrible, heartbreaking, romantic, tender and beautiful and answers so many questions and his Proposal and the Epilogue.... well if you've loved their story, that'll have you in tears.

Worth a credit? IMHO, a MUST for any Fixed fan but be please be prepared to hate Hudson for most of the book and wait for his climactic downfall when he realises he's lost the love of his life but then you can rejoice when he lovingly puts his heart and soul into winning her back. It's so well written, emotional, tragic and bitter but it's also a well narrated story about character growth, healing, understanding, forgiveness and the unconditional power of a beautiful love. So, worth the credit..... HELL YEAH. But must be listened to after their moving trilogy.

Narrator takes away the sexy

Does anyone else think that this narrator sounds like Beavis from Beavis and butthead...? It's not through out the entire book but is comparable in several areas...

Review of the "Fixed" Series (1-3)

If I had realized that this book "Hudson" was a review, from Hudson's point, I probably would not have bought it. However, it was nice to have a quick review of the three previous books. I enjoyed this story. Why is it so hard for people to "come clean" with the person they love? I guess I am an open book and don't really hide anything. Some times people think their secrets are such a big deal, when most often they are only a big deal to themselves. Not people around them. Alayna and Hudson need to stop making stupid mistakes. However, if they didn't, there wouldn't be a book. So much anxiety as a listened to this audiobook. Glad I bought it so I can listen to it again, later, much later. When my heart slows down. lol

Voice not suited

Would you try another book from Laurelin Paige and/or James Patrick Nelson?

I would try another book written by Laureline Paige and/or narrated by James Patrick Nelson

Would you be willing to try another book from Laurelin Paige? Why or why not?

I have read the fixed trilogy in Alayna's POV and liked it.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

yes

Did Hudson inspire you to do anything?

nope, this was not an inspirational story

Any additional comments?

The book itself was okay, i just didn't like the character Hudson and I did not think the narrator matched the attitude.

loved the books prior, this was mediocre

I love the stories prior to this one but hearing it from Hudson's point of view didn't add a lot. And the reader although he's supposed to have a sexy voice, is very deep and monotone and I found it putting me to sleep.

Not the right narrator

The narration was so bad I could not enjoy the book. I had read the 3 previous books in this series so it was disappointing I could not enjoy this book. In the book it says Hudson is 30 years old. This narrator sounded 50-60. I tried increasing the speed to 125x which did help but all in all it was a very disappointing read.

Unnecessary and Poorly Read

This look at the Fixed story through Hudson's eyes is intended to humanize him, but it does just the opposite. He was perfectly human already having listened to books 1-3 in the series, and the messed up logic he reveals in this book only serves to make him unrelatable. And since this one book covers Hudson's perspective of the first three books, it doesn't include all of the dialogue that was in the original text or even all of the scenes, so I was constantly trying to remember what had happened and when in order to make sense of the jumble given here, most of which seemed to be after the fact.

Moreover, James Patrick Nelson has such a soporific voice that I actually fell asleep repeatedly listening to him drone on and on. He ruins the sexy scenes with that voice. It is not at all how I spent three books imagining this hot 28-year-old billionaire sounds. He sounds more like Hudson at age 48. He kept changing how each different female sounds, so it was impossible to keep track of who was talking. Even worse was his lack of differentiation between his spoken lines and his thought lines. If I have a print book in my hand, then obviously the typeface and the punctuation are going to signal to me which is which, but when the book is read aloud, the narrator needs to vary his tone or inflection in some way to let me know if he is speaking aloud to other characters or simply revealing his inner thought process to the reader/listener.
