Free Me by Beck Grey (Love in the Pacific Northwest # 4)

“I’m serious. I want you there with me, and I want you to wear what makes you feel spectacular. If it’s a she/her day, wear a gown if you want. You’d look stunning in one. If you’re feeling he/him, wear a tux, or a suit. I’m equally sure you’ll look fabulous. And if you’re somewhere in between then, I don’t know, wear both.” That makes me laugh, and it seems to ease Blake’s tension. “I mean it, Stef. Wear what you want. Just come with me, please?” Blake, in Free Me

From the blurb:

A gender-fluid cutie, a workaholic hottie, and a hookup gone right.


No romantic relationship could ever compete with my dream job. Sure, it gets lonely, but that’s what occasional hookups are for. Work-life balance? Who cares? I certainly don’t. Until chest pains bring me to my knees and land me in the emergency room.

It’s a wake-up call I can’t afford to ignore.

When my well-meaning family encourages me to make some major life changes, like hiring a meditation and physiotherapist, whatever that is, I’m worried enough to agree.

Imagine my surprise when my practitioner turns out to be the hookup I haven’t been able to forget.


What’s a fabulously vivacious gender-fluid beauty to do when stress is high and Prince Charmings aren’t lined up at their door? Head to the club to recharge my sparkle on the dance floor. I have no intention of hooking up with anyone. Hookups are not my thing.

Then I see the slightly older hottie in the Tom Ford suit, and all my self-restraint goes up in a blast of glitter.

When it turns out he’s my new meditation client and my friend's older brother, I’m sure the universe is messing with me.

Because mixing business with pleasure is a huge no-no.

So why does my heart keep shouting yes?

Free Me is a low-angst, opposites attract, worlds collide, LGBTQ contemporary romance. It contains no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA.

Heather's Review:

I'm probably a little biased because I've loved this entire series and everything that Beck Grey has written, but honestly I think Free Me is my new favourite story!  It not only brings together two very opposite people who fit well togther, but it also unites two sides of the friendship/found family spectrum that the Love in the Pacific Northwest series is based on... and draws Blake into the fold nicely!

This book has an instant connection that isn't acted on until after they meet again, a lovely outlook with respectful and sweet characters who are allowed to be themselves and also grow within the relationship AND some super steamy times...

Beck Grey pays attention to all the little details and references them throughout the story to make it both personal and meaningful to the characters!

While I think you can jump into any one of these novels as standalone, you will definitely find the worlds colliding element fun if you've read the series from the beginning.

Miki J's Review:

Oh sweet mother petunia Free Me was a fabulously brilliant book!!! Blake... finally we have his story and Stef/Stefan/Stefanie - beautiful, sassy and sooo much fun and I just loved their babbling and little sayings!! 

This may be considered as an insta-love but as they acknowledged - they are adults and communicated clearly and it felt right. hey quite simply suit each other to a "T". 

The story is beautifully written - made me cry and laugh and cheer. This series is definitely one for your bookshelves to be enjoyed over and over again...
