A full-length companion novel to the NY Times Bestselling Fixed Trilogy.

"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.

About the Author

Laurelin Paige is the New York Times , Wall Street Journal , and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Fixed Trilogy. She's a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there's kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn't seem to complain, however. When she isn't reading or writing sexy stories, she's probably singing, watching Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead , or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She's also a proud member of Mensa International, though she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.

I loved and enjoyed reading the amazing, awesome, romantic, heart wrenching, love story Hudson (Fixed Book 4) by Laurelin Paige. Read the highly recommended, wonderfully written story of Alayna and Hudson's relationship told through Hudson's point of view.

An absolute must read if you have read the Fixed Trilogy. If you haven't read the Fixed Trilogy, you MUST! This series is deliciously addictive and leaves you wanting to read more. This book gives a whole new perspective on Hudson. The ending is absolutely perfect. Thank you Laurelin for completing the story for us.

I freaking love companion books. Particularly from the guy's POV. I ate up Walking Disaster. Trust In Me. Unbreakable. When I learned about Hudson, I knew I had to have it. I loved the first three Fixed books, but there was a lot that I felt like I missed out on. Hudson was very much an enigma. So, the chance to get inside his head was a definite draw for me. And, I wasn't disappointed. The really awesome thing about Hudson was that it wasn't simply a retelling of the first three Fixed books from his POV. Hudson always claimed that he didn't have the ability to love someone. It seemed as if that was drilled into his head by his evil mother. And then there was his destructive relationship with Celia. Hudson switches from pre-Alayna to post-Alayna, and when you put the two halves together, we get a whole picture of who Hudson really is. Despite his destructive "games," when the reader gets Hudson's full backstory, it's hard to not feel a lot of empathy for him. It's clear that his parents were not nurturing and loving toward him. His mother tried to convince him that he was emotionless and loveless in an attempt to make herself feel better about her constant downward spiral. Although my opinion of Hudson had already risen by the end of Forever With You, by the end of Hudson, I was convinced the man could do no wrong. Celia, however, I didn't really think I could hate more. I was wrong. Hudson can claim all he wants that he made her who she became. It became clear when we see their history that there was always a kernel of wrongness about her that only became amplified after her failed relationship attempt with Hudson. Hudson merely encouraged what was already there. And seeing how she hatched plan after plan to drive other people - Alayna included - to the brink of despair was pretty infuriating. On the other side of the story, though, I loved watching Hudson's and Alayna's relationship unfold through his eyes. There was a lot that was very surprising to me. When the story was told from Alayna's POV, I got the impression that Hudson was dragged along kicking and screaming for awhile before finally succumbing to the realization that he was in love with her. What is actually the case is a bit of instalove - crazy, right? It seems almost as if Hudson fell in love with Alayna from the moment he saw her. He seemed in it for the long haul. And, even more surprising, he admitted to himself that he loved Alayna long before he ever clued her in. It was shocking and delightful. It appeared that he only kept that nugget to himself so that he could more effectively manage Celia. Which, of course, ended up a big, fat fail. The epilogue was absolutely wonderful. It gave me the perfect sense of closure to this couple's story. Thank you, Laurelin Paige for giving we fans something I know I was clamoring for. This peek inside the complex and beautiful mind of Hudson Pierce was the absolute best way to finish his and Alayna's story.

Sexy hot made you want to keep reading loved that we got Hudson's point of view and how he felt when it seemed like he didn't care. Need another one to follow that!

I'm really glad Ms. Paige wrote Hudson's story. There's so much about him we didn't and couldn't  know and learn from Alayna's point of view. I was able to see his growth from his perspective, to  know how it affected him, truly affected him. He's a very complex man. I'm glad they found one another. The healed one another, complement one another, and love truly together. I guess, like they said, without Celia they never would have gotten together, but I still wish she were run over by a bus. I love that Alayna and Hudson, even in the worst of it all, never gave up on their love.  I'm anxious to see what's in store for Gwen.

Best book I have read told from the male point of view. It wasn't just the same story told again. Love the fixed series. Waiting for Gwen.

I was concerned this was going to be a rehash of the series, but we find out even more behind the scenes info. Nice job of writing characters with lots of depth and growth. Enjoyed it. Looking forward to Gwen's story.

I loved this book. Laurelin did a fantastic job writing Hudson's version and it stayed true to the Fixed trilogy. She does a fantastic job with the evolution of Hudson emotions from thinking that he couldn't feel love to bringing out those emotions that laid dormant for years. I could see this book as a box office hit if someone in Hollywood read this book. The complexity of the characters really make for a intriguing story. Bravo to Laurelin Page for writing such a fantastic story.

A good series. Can't help but fall in love with Hudson. Waiting for the next few books to come out.

Took forever to read this and finish it. Too much re-hashing the first 3 books but in Hudson's point of view. Only read Hudson if you read the Fixed Trilogy books first. Much of this book could have been shorten to the conversations between Hudson and Celia and Hudson's family that the reader was not privy to in the Fixed Trilogy. Hudson and Celia are two sick individuals based on the games they played and how Hudson played Celia and Alayna was horrible. I enjoyed the ending with Hudson and Alayna and the Epilogue. Look forward to reading the next installment.

I loved the series, even as much as it made me angry. The first three, though difficult at times were good. I thought maybe then when I read Hudson I would find forgiveness for Hudson. I've got to say...hard to do...I really had a hard time getting past his betrayal !
