Book one of The Ross Siblings series
Genre: Romance, Erotica, contemporary
It’s not enough that Kelsey’s husband left her for another woman. Oh, no. The “other woman” had to be her best friend Evan’s fiancée. Not only has she lost her marriage, she fears losing Evan to the lingering awkwardness and humiliation that hangs between them.
Evan has no intention of letting that happen. He’s got plans…namely, an extra plane ticket to Hawaii now his future wife is out of the picture. There’s only one person he wants on the trip with him, the one who’s always been there for him. The one he should never have let slip away into the arms of a traitorous friend who shattered her heart.
Kelsey is anticipating a week of fun in the sun with the man who’s always treated her like a little sister. No one’s more surprised when she discovers that Evan has seduction on his mind—and that she’s more than ready for it.
Love is the most powerful healing force of all. But past demons have a way of ripping open old wounds, and threatening the survival of even the strongest friendship…
Unleashed is one of those books where everything is ‘nice.’ The plot is nice, the characters are nice and the writing is nice. It is a perfectly good read not meant to annoy nor blow your mind. It is just nice and sometimes nice is just what you need.
I had very little problem with the book as a whole. Kelsey can be a little irritating with her lack of self-worth, but mostly she is funny, especially when she is around her best friend Lisa (who was a pretty amazing character.) Evan is nice to. He is sweet and charming, he too has a few annoying moments but mostly he is just what you are looking for in a romantic lead.
The other characters do not have a strong presence in the book. They have a massive effect on the main characters but do not appear often, it was more about Kelsey and Evan which I liked.
The romance between Evan and Kelsey is sweet. It moves fast but it isn’t a problem because they have known each other for a long time so they are already familiar with one another. There was some drama between them but it was ironed out quickly which I thought was great.
All in all Unleashed is a light and enjoyable read. It was a perfect way to spend an afternoon. I will be checking out the next book in the series as I have heard it is even better than the first.
My Rating 3 out of 5 stars
