SET FREE BY KELLY COLLINSGENRE:Contemporary romance with an 18+ warning
One ex-convict, one detective, one ranch, one hell of a ride.
When twenty-four-year-old Mickey Mercer walked out of the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility she had two things on her mind: the friends she left behind and the rough road ahead.
She had a failing ranch, a rundown home, and an angry ex-boyfriend determined to crush her. That was until a stranger appointed himself her personal savior.
Detective McKinley’s job was to protect and serve. His life was consumed by work until he found Mickey walking down a dusty road. She was a mess and in trouble, and there was nothing sexier than trouble. Mickey was everything he wanted, but nothing he needed. That was the lie he told himself.
Set Free is a story about love, hope, and redemption. Sometimes, people aren’t what they seem. Sometimes, they’re better.
I absolutely loved this book! It was a very quick read. I enjoyed getting to learn Mickey's history, Kerrick is a tough detective with a very soft spot for Mickey. When she is recently released from prison, Kerrick is quick to sweep her off her feet and help her get back on her feet. Mickey know that she has to start again, but doesn't know how or what do.
This book was well written. There were definitely heart breaking parts of the book, there were also heart racing moments as well as VERY steamy moments. All the characters who were active in this book we well developed. Even some of the ladies that will be showing up in future books, you felt like you knew who they were. I can't wait to see what happens in the future books. Not only for Kerrick and Mickey, but for the rest of the crew. Even the good doctor (If he has his own). Keep up the great work!

I resigned myself to hoofing it up the road. Step by step, I distanced myself from the prison. The farther I got, the better I felt. My meager steps turned into long strides. My rounded shoulders straightened. With each step, the dirt I kicked up buried my past.
Twenty minutes later, the prison faded from view. The road ahead twisted and turned with nothing in sight. Leaving the confines of the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility, I didn’t expect my lack of resources to confine me in a new type of hell.
The sun sat high in the sky and I was well on my way to sunburnt limbs. Leaning against a signpost on the side of the road, my eyes searched for cars leaving the prison. Maybe someone would be kind enough to give me a ride.
The hot breeze rattled the sign above my head. When I looked up, I laughed. It said Correctional facility area. Do not pick up hitchhikers. I continued on the dusty path, knowing that the universe had just flipped me off.
