He hurt me
He broke me
He almost destroyed me
Nobody was ever going to do that to me again. I learnt to fight back. I made myself tougher, harder, stronger. I didn’t want or need anyone.
Until Nate Masters.
Until he made me feel, want and need
Then my carefully constructed world began falling apart around me. Secrets shattering my faith in those closest to me and with the nightmare from my past pushing its way back into my present, I don’t know how much strength I have left to fight with….
Could I trust him? Give someone the power to hurt me again? He’s determined to break me free from behind my walls of self-preservation.
I’m just not sure I’m ready or willing to be Freed by Him….

Freed by Him is GL Chapple’s debut novel and I really enjoyed it. The story-line and characters were well-developed. It was fast paced, engaging and unique. The chemistry between Nate and Lena was palpable. I enjoyed their banter. Though, Gramps seriously stole the show for me! There were plenty of twists and humorous moments. The story wasn’t rushed or predictable. Chapple really draws you into the story with her writing. That being said, the story was repetitive. I felt like this took away from the flow. I understand the author may have wanted us to get both perspectives of certain portions of the story but I didn’t think it was necessary. Overall, this series has a lot of potential and this was a really good start.
He looked over at me, annoyance on his features. “Last time you had sex with a woman?” he demanded.
I spluttered “Gramps! You want me to tell you the last time I was with a woman?” I asked incredulously.
“I’m not interested in the last time you gave your wrist a work out!” He deadpanned, and I barked out a laugh at him,
“Jesus, Gramps! Can’t you be like other old men?!” I shook my head at him but he still looked at me, waiting.
“Bloody hell” I cursed, cringing knowing that he wouldn’t let the conversation go.
“I dunno why you feel the need to know, 6 days ago. Satisfied?”
He fixed me with a stare. “You trying to be funny, boy? I’ve not been satisfied for nearly two weeks. I’m a grown man who fought for his bloody country, and if I want…”
I interrupted his rant. “Wait! How’d you get it two weeks ago?” I looked at him puzzled, and a slow grin spread over his face.
“Betty stays here quite regularly, boy. We were just unlucky last night, in that the silly old witch next door fell over.”
