This is pretty decent for a first work, but I will agree with another reviewer that it was long on sex and short on romance. The author has some storytelling talent, but all those sex scenes (which went on forever) did nothing to promote her abilities beyond the bedroom.
This is supposed to be the first book of a trilogy. I hope that the author can get away from the drawn-out sexual business and tackle the plot. I know that sex sells, but this writer seems to have enough skill to sell her work without so much of it. I would have given it 4 stars, otherwise.

Although, like most romances, quite predictable, it was nevertheless a good read. The characters were fresh and interesting, Pace was good, and there were no glaring gaps in the story line. Could have used a bit more careful editing in spots, but overall enjoyable.

Author Jennifer Collin thoroughly entertained me with her novel Set Me Free.

I love Women's Contemporary Fiction, especially when authors such as Ms. Collins write the spectrum of emotions based upon life's real experiences. Often this genre is thought of as "Happily Ever After," and nothing more. Set Me Free has some ridiculously funny moments, as well as some heart wrenching ones. The only bad thing about books like these is that they end... but in this case it doesn't. Set Me Free is book one in The Evans Trilogy. Yay!!

We meet Charlotte Evans as she arrives back in Australia after a trip to Rome with her mother. Unlucky in love, once again, she uses travel as a way to escape and heal. No sooner does she land than she meets the oh-so-handsome Craig Carmichael. Things are looking up for the two of them, until they find out they are on opposite sides of a business deal.

Charlotte and Craig have depth of character and over the course of the book continue to captivate the other as their pasts are revealed. Life happens to everyone, and while Charlotte and Craig have their hands full of rescuing everyone around them, they take a little time to rescue themselves.

A very well crafted book. Open My Eyes, book two in The Evans Trilogy is available and a must read as well.

I'll admit it - I was needing an escape from a hideous week. Wow. I got exactly the escape I was needing. Set Me Free was such a treat. Great characters, plenty of sizzle, and of course impossible obstacles between the hero and heroine. I loved the realism of the story, the flawed characters, and the sense that I was talking to a really good friend as I read. Ms Collin wove a great story, and I found myself reading waaaaaay past my bedtime, looking for 'the right place' to stop. Ha! I read the whole story within 24 hours (not a lot else got done, it's fair to say) and can't wait for book 2. Great job, Ms Collin :)

This was a great story actually but the constant sex scenes took away from it, as far as I'm concerned. I flip on thru those and unfortunately when you do that you have half a book to read.

This is a great chick lit book and is definitely one that you could knock over in a weekend (or less!). The author has such a way with words making it a joy to read! The book is set in contemporary Australia with a lovely vintage/Art Deco undertone as favoured by the likeable characters. I really enjoyed the storyline - a battle of wills between small business and a big developer mixed with a perfect amount of sexual tension which will keep you entertained right to the end. This book is the first instalment in a three part series and I can't wait to read the next!

Cathy’s 5 Star Thoughts
REVIEWED FOR ROUND TABLE BOOK REVIEWS
Set Me Free by Jennifer Collins is a lovely, evocative, visual story. It unfolds slowly as we get to know the characters. And, there are a lot of characters. Each one is uniquely described and playing an important role in the story. Remove one character and the story would not tell itself. It would lose the sense of community and fit that is an integral part of the beauty of the telling.
Emily, the talented, witty, easy-going painter
Charlotte, the uptight, world traveller, caretaker and connector
Craig, the insightful developer, crafty yet moral businessman still living in his father’s shadow
Ben, the savvy player and barista extraordinaire
Geoff, the selfish oaf, lawyer and husband
And that is not even all of them…
The story is also filled with gorgeous descriptions of place. Ms. Collins definitely has a knack for seeing the beauty in ordinary places. The descriptions are so vivid that when I finished, I felt I had taken a holiday to Australia to stay with a friend and become a part of the community during my stay.
I highly recommend Set Me Free for the real story, real characters and lovely place it creates.

This author is a wonderful writer. The descriptions, the dialogue, the pacing - everything about this book was impressive. The romance was less than realistic, but that's what I liked about it - it was the perfect escape from a winter that seemingly will never end! Charlotte was a great character - a good person with a big heart, but not a doormat. And I really enjoyed that the book was not only about Charlotte, but her younger sister Emily as well. Possible spoiler alert: Although I do wish there was some more development of Emily's relationship with her husband Geoff (or the breakdown thereof), I hope that will be further explored in the next installment of the series. It bothered me that Emily never actually spoke to Geoff before moving out of their house. They were high school sweethearts and I thought, despite his less-than-admiral activities, she should have at least let him talk to her. Finally, several of the men in this book were swoon-worthy, Craig and Ben to be specific :)

I look forward to reading more of this series and this author in general
