But what happens when she discovers his secret? That he’s been paid to watch over her all along?

This is the third book in the Rosewood Bay series and each one can be read as a stand alone but who would want to do that when you can read them in order and understand the storyline so much better. Ya know what i mean. In this book, which is the third book in the series, we are finally getting to meet the missing sister Juliette Collins. Halley and Phoebe knew about her from their Aunt Joy but had no way to look for her. She just discovered about them and zip came to look for them in a flash. I loved the way that author Carly Phillips gave Juliette depth to her spirit in spite of being kept in a glass house so to speak by her father all of her life. It is like we have these genes that are deep within us, that no matter the circumstances we are in our genes will always rise up and overcome. Juliette meets a wonderful sexy guy when she starts working (yes, the rich city girl gets gets J.O.B.) but there is a big catch... he is the guy her controlling dad has hired to watch her on the sly. Braden Clark is not only good looking and protective but he is a family man. Something that Juliette knows a lot about. Instant chemistry oh can i say these two you can see the steam coming off the pages of the book! But not only that this book also has a sweet face to it also which to me makes it well rounded and oh so perfect. Well written and a book that has me from page one until the end Freed is a book I can highly recommend to any and all. Now I can not wait for the fourth book in this series to come out Dream.

Freed is the third book in the Rosewood Bay series and we finally get to meet the unknown sister, Juliette Collins. Phoebe and Halley Ward knew they had a younger sister but have not been able to find her ever since Juliette's dad took her away. What they didn't know was that she was living a very privileged and sheltered life in New York City. When Juliette finds out she has half sisters and that her dad kept that news from her she is livid. Juliette then decides she is taking her own life into her own hands and travels to Rosewood Bay to get to know her sisters. What Juliette didn't expect was that Phoebe and Halley are wonderful people and she is so excited to be a part of their lives. Juliette also didn't expect to find a man that she is strongly attracted to, but Braden Clark becomes that man. Too bad Juliette doesn't know that her dad hired Braden to watch over her. While things heat up between him and Juliette, Braden starts to feel guilty about working for her dad. As Braden helps Juliette navigate taking control of her own life, he is quickly fall hard for her and she for him. What seems like a perfect relationship quickly turns into something horrible when Juliette's dad shows up. It takes an act of faith, and some family love for these two to get to their happy ending. I liked Juliette. Even though she was sheltered her whole life, she still had the will to take control back and it was fun seeing her do many things that others do younger in life. I really loved Braden. He was so sweet and loving and yet sexy at the same time. I really loved how he was with his dad too! Such a hard story line, but he dealt with it the best way he could. I also loved the little sneak peak at Andi's story! I can't wait to read it!

OMGoodness!!! This is a great story. Loved every word. Juliette is a woman that has lived with her father her whole life. She has been protected and supported having never had to worry about anything. Unfortunately, after her father’s heart attack she finds she is having to play more of an adult role with helping him with business and most importantly his health. She spends her days making sure he eats right and takes his medicine. She wants to get him something special for his birthday this year, so she decides to get him a bottle of one of his favorite wines. In order to do that she has to get inside his safe to look over his wine list. Once inside the safe Juliette finds some files that show the mother she thought was dead is actually alive and that she has 2 sisters she didn’t know even existed. After confronting her father Juliette decides to spend her summer in Roseway Bay so she can find her sisters and hopefully start a relationship with them. Braden is co-owner of a protection (bodyguard services, investigator services, etc.) business. One day Braden gets a call from Juliette’s father wanting him to keep tabs on Juliette and report back to him everything that happens. After Braden receives the request and the picture of his “assignment” Juliette, he thinks this is going to be a spoiled woman and an easy job. Braden doesn’t count on Juliette being a beautiful and loving woman that just wants to meet the family she never knew she had. Before Braden heads out to start his job and find Juliette he stops for coffee at his favorite local café. Luckily for Braden at his first stop he comes head to head with the one woman that will break down all his walls and show him how to truly love someone; his assignment Juliette. You won’t be disappointment with this HEA. Fantastic story.
