This is the full length novel that follows the prequel book First Night which was about Olivia and Gavin. We begin months after Olivia and Gavin have parted after their wonderful week in Los Angeles. (Was I the only one yelling out NOOOOOOOO! At the end of First Night? If you haven’t read it, I suggest you do so now!)
Olivia is stood up by Brandon, her ex, a famous A-list actor who dumped her by text message when his career takes off and pretty much ruins hers. Olivia and Gavin’s mutual friend, Charlene calls Gavin in to give Olivia much needed support, but Gavin has another agenda. He needs her to save Club Volare New Orleans.
And thus starts Gavin and Olivia’s “fake” relationship. . Gavin wants Olivia as his submissive, only with no-strings-attached due to his promise he made to himself ten years ago. Olivia wants to know just what happened to Gavin all those years ago, because it’s part of the reason some of the locals want the club gone. Olivia is a born caretaker and will do anything to But will it be enough? And can Gavin overcome his past?
There are lots of conflicts to overcome here in Free and Bound, but you can’t help but root for Olivia and Gavin every step of the way in this book. Chloe has a way of drawing you in to the story so you feel like you are part of the family, and you want nothing more than for Gavin and Olivia to get their happy ever after.
The secondary characters are great too. And I must say I’m looking forward to Luke and Charlene’s story as well as Holt and Simone’s. And there are still a few other characters that are worthy of their own books as well. This book was a joy to read and I am so glad that Chloe is back writing about Club Volare again. Makes me wish that there were a Club Volare here in Boston…Mmmm sign me up.
