Publisher's Summary

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.

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

Must hear if you've read the first books

When done with the first books, which I enjoyed, I hesitated using a credit for this book, as I felt emotionally spent and didn't know if I wanted to "relive" all of the hard scenes. But this book tied it all together and filled in so many questions and blanks, not only in the story but also in Hudson's character. It made me like the entire story even that much better. Hudson's love was evident throughout his actions in the first books, but it wasn't until this final book that it was possible to fully see how bright and indisputable and full his love for her was. This love story came full circle. Must read!!!!

Worth a night of no sleep. :)

Impressed on how Hudson tied into all three books from the series. Amazing insight from his perspective. Kept you totally intrigued even though you already knew the end result of each action. Loved it!!!

Good but not needed

Book was well written but retells the trilogy but from a different character. So story not new which is something did not like. Perspective is different but not enough that I'd recommend the purchase. Choose trilogy or this one. Both not needed.

Interesting but long winded

It was nice to hear Hudson perspective but it would have been better if it had been imbedded in the original book. It was long with little movement to keep reader engaged.

Swoon!!!

I have to admit that I loved the Fixed trilogy so I was very excited when I found out that we get the story told from Hudson's perspective as I found I had previously had very little sympathy for him.
Not so now, now I might have a slight literary crush on Hudson!
This really is just a retelling of the tale with a few choice moments from Hudson's past thrown in. That's not much you might say but light is thrown on not only Hudson's back story but Celia as well. And I hate to admit it but I now, kind of, fell sorry for Celia and I really hate her. Also this book confirmed what I always suspected and that's the Mira is awesome. I loved her already but she's just awesome.
I also had this as an audio from Audible and the voice actor, James Patrick Nelson, was just melt your socks off HOT!!

A good ending to a good story.

A brilliant way to finish the story in the previous 3 books. The narrator's voice was a bit depressing to listen to for long, it kept sending me to sleep,but a great story all the same.

a relisten

I think this is the 5th or 6th time I listen to this book. and i have read it a few times also.
it's a Hudson pov to laurelins fixed trilogi. you cant listen to this without listening or reading the trilogi first.
The first time i listened to it. I didn't like the narrators voice. But i must say. This is the voice of Hudson. it's strong and good. and i I dont think it could be anybody els doing this.
I have said this alot of times before and I will say it again. laurelin cant writh a bad book. in my World it's all 5 stars.
I love this book because it gives a insight to why Hudson plays his games. what made him do it. how it all started and why Celia is such a big part of the games. so if you love Hudson in fixed. then you will only love him more after this book.

I'm fixed on this set

This trilogy is excellent. I felt every emotion in the book as if I was on the journey with alana and Hudson.

Hudson the final instalment is a must read to understand everything.

Excellent Lauerlin Paige.

Not all that keen on this bokk

Was looking forward to reading this book as it was to be told from a male perspective. Unfortunately I find no male in the book - or only a little male. It is very female and therefore disappointing to me.
This assessment is more about me and voices but I have not enjoyed the tone nor emphasis of the reader. I consider this have influenced my overall view of this book.

Great read to hear a whole new point of view

I felt like the story jumped a little - obviously we go back and forth from past to present but the 'present' felt a little muddled. A lot of time spent focusing on insignificant events and rushed through defining moments. However really loved hearing the story from Hudsons point of view
