Title: Freed
Author: Carly Phillips
Series: Rosewood Bay #3
Release Date: July 10, 2018

MY RATING: ★★★★★
Fall for the missing Ward sister…

Juliette Collins is privileged and isolated from the world by her over-protective father. She thinks she knows the truth about her history until a file in her father’s safe reveals she has sisters she never knew about. A family she’s never met. Betrayed, she realizes there’s a life waiting for her outside the walls of her daddy’s New York City penthouse and Juliet is determined to live it. Against her father’s wishes, she heads to a small beach community to meet her siblings… and finds herself way out of her depth instead.

In the personal protection business, Braden Clark thinks nothing of taking on a job to watch over a city girl in town for the summer. If her father wants to know his daughter is safe, it’s no problem and an easy way of earning a paycheck. Except Braden doesn’t count on falling for the sheltered Juliette. Watching her experience her firsts, getting an apartment, finding a job, meeting up with her lost sisters, soon Braden’s brand of protection becomes a little too personal. He’s mixing business with pleasure and lying to a woman he’s coming to care deeply about.

Sexual attraction burns bright between them and Braden is by her side as she finds herself, her family, and what it means to love... but what happens when she discovers his secret? That he’s been paid to watch over her all along?

A Standalone Novel
I was so excited to finally meet the third, long-list sister, Juliette in the Rosewood Bay series! And I was not disappointed! Juliette is such a fun, sassy, and lovable character, and as she breaks out of her cocooned life to find her sisters she meets Braden. Between these two, there's a lot of heartache surrounding their stories, and as the story progresses more emotional turmoil is stirred up, but among all the trials and tribulations in their lives, Braden and Juliette are just ridiculously cute and enviable in their relationship. The fit together like puzzle pieces, and I think them together might be my favorite Rosewood Bay couple, which is saying a lot because I loved Halley, Phoebe and their men a whole heck of a lot. 

Freed brought a lot of wonderful elements together into a story that will make you swoon, sigh, tear up, and everything in between. It's a wonderful romance that I enjoyed each minute of. And can I tell you how excited I am that we were introduced to a new character who we will get to meet in an upcoming book as well? I would have missed the Rosewood Bay series a great deal, so I can't wait for more of it!

Happy Reading!
