This book was received from Inkslinger PR in exchange for an honest review.
Unafraid was another new adult win for me! It is a really refreshing storyline and I read it in one sitting. I dare ya not to like this one.
Brittany is such a strong girl. She was dealt a shit hand in life, her dad leaving their family and her mom loved booze more than Brittany. She has dreams, dreams she wants more than anything to accomplish She’s extremely pessimistic and I really can’t blame her because of her upbringing, but I wish she didn’t have such a load on her shoulders. She expects the worst out of Hunter, just because of her past experience, and I love when he proves her wrong.
Hunter truly is a golden boy, just like Brit thinks. He is so dang considerate, sweet, and just perfect. And yet, he is messed up inside just like Brittany. But he doesn’t let it stop him from giving his all to her and showing her so much love. He’s headstrong, just like his counterpart and never gives up no matter how many times she tells him to go away.
I loved seeing Juliet and Emerson back in action. They are so cute together and Emerson loves his little sister and will beat up anyone that hurts his sister. Garrett is like a surrogate brother to Brittany as well and I really love his character.
The thing I loved about Unbroken, Juliet and Emerson’s book, and this book is that the couples have a past. Brit and Hunter have a complicated past, and I enjoyed having it unfolded in pieces. I love having deliciously tortured pasts. :) Hunter and Brit may have not seen each other in three years, but none of their feelings ever diminished. Their relationship develops fast, and they feel so strongly for each other. Their sexy times were beyond sexy and their sweet times were adorable.
I liked this installment even more than Unbroken and I can’t wait to see what Melody has up her sleeve for us!
Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: It’s the kiss I’ve been waiting three long years to taste again, but it’s nothing like I imagined. Sweet and soft, hot and slow. My eyes drift shut with bliss as his mouth dances softly over mine. He’s barely touching me, but the shudder of pleasure that rolls through me is enough to make my heart stop and my legs buckle. Hunter wraps an arm around my waist, holding me up, and I sway into him, lost in the darkness.
