Alayna Withers' relationship with Hudson Pierce has tested both her and his ability to trust. They decide that the only way they can move forward together is with open doors and transparency. It won't be easy for the scarred lovers, but they're committed to each other more now than ever. Alayna, in particular, has grown through their trials, and has emerged more confident and faithful to the man she loves.
But while the pair is focused on the future, their past shows up again to threaten their fragile bond. Promises that were made are broken, and Alayna learns that Hudson still has very potent secrets - secrets that will tear them both apart. As much as she feels for him, her ability to forgive and forget is tested beyond her limits.
Even though she found the only man who could fix her, a forever with Hudson seems more and more out of reach.

I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
...first of all, I seldom gravitate towards story's where the female character does the chasing. But this author did such a fanTAStic job of keeping things even/equal, that I simply could NOT put this book down if I tried.
Alayna Withers is a 26 yr. old Bartender/Promotions Manager at The Sky Launch Club, recently purchased by Hudson Pierce. Alayna (Laynie) is an exquisitely beautiful and extremely intelligent woman who lost her parents at an early age, causing many serious insecurities for her to deal with. One such insecurity; fixating or obsessing on men she involves herself with to the point of stalking them. She's like an alcoholic who walks into a bar but decides she can withstand the temptation as long as the bottles are sealed....not possible...hence, no relationships. But all her good intentions of "no relationships" change when she meets Hudson Pierce...(book #1) Fixed on You (Volume 1)
Hudson Pierce is a 29 year old wealthy and successful businessman with a Celebrity Status, and he's just purchased the Club that Laynie works at. He's drop dead gorgeous with all his muscles and he naturally oozes and exudes raw, hot sex...more than hot, he's a blazing volcano. His voice is hypnotic and his demeanor is cold, controlled and controlling. Hudson says exactly what's on his mind - - precisely. His eyes are all piercing and nothing is missed by him. He reads body language well. He's arrogant, consuming, complex and very bitter. Hudson has been conditioned to believe he's incapable of love (Sociopathic) - - either intentionally by his mother or unintentionally by his therapist, or both; he believes it's true since he's used and manipulated women into thinking he was in love with them, and then dumping them...destroying them. In spite of what Hudson thinks of himself, Laynie feels that Hudson is very capable of feeling love. After all, (she says), he feels "regret" and "remorse" and is so traumatized over his past actions against women...that alone should prove that he's capable of caring.....that shows humanity.
In this final installment, Alayna and Hudson are working together through their mutual trust issues - - building honesty and trying to stabilize an already fragile relationship. Hudson has let Alayna in where nobody has ever been allowed before. He's allowed her to see and know most of the hidden secrets of his past. She not only becomes his reason for breathing, she's air itself. She's the thrum of his pulse and every whisper of his conscience.
I absolutely loved this final episode of the The Fixed Trilogy. Outstanding closure. We find for the first time in his life, Hudson finally knows what it means to love and be loved. He begins to be aware of small acts of love everywhere he goes....things that have always been right in front of him daily. He comes to realize that Laynie is everything he ever needed and never knew he wanted. SUPERB!
...and OMG!!! Liesl......Liesl had GOT to be the best sub-character comedy relief in these stories. I absolutely adore her! At any rate this is a fabulous ending full of the drama of living with and dealing with mental/emotional disorders...very well told..this Author did a superb job reeling the reader into the lives of these characters. Bravo and job well done Ms. Paige...and all I can say is....MORE!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I absolutely love Laurelin Paige’s writing style and Forever With You does not disappoint... This amazingly emotional trilogy will forever stay in my heart... The story begins right after Found in You ends and launches right into more delicious romance and intense chemistry between Alayna and Hudson. I loved this attentive and romantic side of Hudson! There are still lots of external forces conspiring to drive a wedge between these new lovers’ relationship. Plus, Alayna has her own demons to deal with which make her behavior at times very maddening! This book inspired a lot of emotion in me and I was really worried that she would be the one to drive the two of them apart:
Hudson does all that he can possibly do under the circumstances to persuade Alayna that his feelings for her are genuine and real. But her obsessive nature bubbles to the surface on more than one occasion.
Hudson also seems to be keeping something from Alayna despite their promises to be completely honest and open with each other. There is a very compelling story-line here that is very creative and emotional. At times, I feared that Hudson’s behavior, not Alayna's, would destroy their relationship. I don’t want to give any spoilers away but rest assured that this book is packed with some totally HOT sex scenes and a fantastic story-line. It is a fabulous conclusion to the series! I highly recommend this yummy trilogy and I hope "that maybe there will be more written about these characters in the future... :)
Part III: Finally, there is an ending in sight! Lanie and Hudson have aired out MOST of there crazies but there is still a few things to iron out...Hudson has a secret that could end things. Lanie goes all bonkers. Add in a few hot guys, a few hot chicks and the jealousy is insane. 'H' finally realize he can love, Lanie realizes she can't forgive anything. In the end we get to hear the epilogue in Hudson's own voice and sigh at how lovely the possibility of HEA is!
Well WOW, I'm emotionally drained after listening to the heartbreaking shocking finale to this intensely addictive, compelling, emotional, hot and eventually beautiful love story that Hudson and Laynie fought so desperately for over the whole Fixed trilogy storyline.
I've lost friends, lost sleep, lost time and been mildly threatened with divorce but, as this intense, passionate, sexy, storyline plays out with its full and richly described scenes with very heartbreaking secrets and surprises, all the overwhelming desperation and despair, the loveable/hateful characters and the climactic nail-biting ending, I was left utterly emotionally drained but also deliriously ecstatic.
Worth a credit? It was so well written, so well described, so well narrated and it's storyline and characters were so well thought out that all I can finally say is that it was so very well worth the three credits for this haunting awesome trilogy.
Great story line with a lot of twist.
When Hudson truly proposed.
When he gave her the cd with the song that made him think of her.
Really loved the whole series. Wish their were more books to continue the story.
