Okay, maybe I am a little over excited, but I have been waiting for this day for awhile. I was honored enough to get an ARC and keeping quiet when all I wanted to do was go talk about this book just about killed me. I really enjoyed this story, so want to share the good news with other readers and book lovers out there.
Why do I love it? So many reasons…
Let’s start with the cover –
The image is so haunting.
Once you get into the story, you’ll understand just how perfect it is, right down to the colors that reach out and grab you.
Blurb: Neely McIntire’s dreams warn her about the future but will not protect her from the danger hiding in plain sight. On graduation night, she plans to tell her best friend, Hayden Nelson, that she’s in love with him. Instead, they argue. Neely’s hurt feelings leave her vulnerable, giving her secret admirer, Andrew Huckley, the opportunity to put his mother’s monstrous plan into motion. When Neely gives in to her broken heart and pushes him away, Hayden knows he must fight to recapture the spark he felt in their last kiss. But will he find her in time to reverse the damage or will she be changed forever?
The story –
UNWILLING takes you on an adventure of intrigue, mystery, and paranormal fantasy all mixed together with some real southern living, myths and legends, and just enough truth to make you, if not become a believer, at least wonder – could this happen?
You get not one, but two stories that intertwine like the leaves of a forbidden forest – drawing you in and never letting go. The angst starts in chapter one and doesn’t let up. And just when you think you have it figured out, guess what… NOPE! My heart raced, then broke, then raced again. I kept turning the pages, waiting to see what new twist was around the bend and loving every heart-wrenching emotion.
I found myself caught up wondering where Neely’s dreams started and her nightmares ended. It took me a bit longer to get into Neely, but as the story progressed I saw what a strong character she was. I sure as hell wasn’t that empowered at her age. You want to shake her, point to the what should be obvious, and comfort her when all hell breaks loose. In the end, Neely shows you how to be strong even when you can’t tell friend from foe.
Then there is Hayden. *sigh* Talk about a tortured hero. And HAWT *fans self* You root for Hayden (at least I did) and admire his refusal to give up, even when all seems lost. Stubborn little cuss. Probably why I liked him so much. His devotion to Neely makes him so real and the interactions with his brothers (speaking from experience) is realistic as hell. Right down to the nit-picking and sibling rivalry.
Not going to spoil it for you, although there was this one chapter where Neely and Hayden kind of — *slaps hand over mouth* Phew! That was close! Let’s just say, DA-YAM slid out of my mouth more than once – and yes I did add the southern drawl to it for effect. (Much to my kids amusement.)
