Unraveling You by Jessica Sorensen

UY1From Goodreads:

Lyric Scott has always had a good life. Outgoing, spunky, and musically talented, she’s constantly surrounded by family and friends, yet she still feels there’s something missing.
Then she meets her new next-door neighbor Ayden Gregory. Mysterious, sweet, and sad, Ayden is the exact opposite of Lyric and exactly what she needs to fill the void in her life.

Ayden has been through more than most people and believes his life is always going to be rocky, so when he’s suddenly adopted by the Gregorys, he’s thrown for a turn. But even with a new, loving family, he still finds himself haunted by the memories of his old life. The only true breath of fresh air is when he’s with his best friend, Lyric Scott.

As Lyric and Ayden grow closer, the lines of their friendship start to blur. But when Ayden’s past unexpectedly pushes its way into his new life, their friendship and newfound attraction will be tested.

Review…

Fans of Jessica Sorensen and ‘Ella and Micha’s love story’, here is their love child, Lyric! I happen to be a fan of Ms Sorensen’s writing, so when looking for an emotional love type of read (other than fantasy)  I knew she was my go to chic!

Once I started reading Unraveling You, I wanted to know more of the characters. The book was quick and to the point kinda of a story.

Ayden, he is dark and mysterious, a loner to be exact. He’s already been in six foster homes and had brutal experiences in his childhood. Closed off, Ayden is not used to the bubbly Lyric, his neighbor, self-assigned ‘protector’ and bestie. He’s scarred emotionally, physically, and  scared to let anyone in, except for Lyric. She doesn’t take no for an answers and forcefully knocks down his walls. Throughout the book, there’s snippets to Ayden’s past but never fully told which is fine because it is a continuous series.

I love reading spunky females and Lyric happens to be my type of gal!

“The girl walks like she’s on crack, all bouncy and full of sunshine.”

What is best about this book?? There’s no male hero, no my friends, it is a female hero! A change in the usual. The romance was young love between Ayden and Lyric! Their both teens never been kissed and two opposites. I loved how at times it was comical and fun at times, in the expense of Lyric’s innocence.

“Just play it cool,” she whispers loudly. I can smell the scotch in her breath. This is a disaster in the making.  “Just let me do the talking,” I tell her as we creep up the hall toward the kitchen, “And don’t breathe on anyone.” She gives an exaggerated nod, I sigh. We are so going down.” – Ayden

Yes, some cliche to the ‘damaging’ characters. But…sometimes that’s just what were in the mood to read…sometimes or it may just be me! Either way, it was very quick read with a guarantee of emotional turmoil. I like sappy reads once in a while.

Jessica Sorensen writing is known for damaged characters, romance, and mind boggling cliffhangers. She doesn’t disappoint in ‘Unraveling You’. It is a series which I look forward to reading more of. Oh, this book is free as I’m posting this review! Even more of a reason to try it out!

“Ten minutes later, I’m riding a purple bike, wearing a helmet, and Lyric is standing on the back pegs.”

      Hey Jeann! Yes the few I’ve read from her had a guaranteed damage character which is good if you go back to once in a while but I’m not to sure if back to back reads :)

      Hey Paula this one was definitely a quick read of hers. I actually liked Breaking Nova better than this book. It was bit more deeper and context was more new adult. :)

    Great review! I haven’t heard of this one, but it sounds like a sweet book. I read one of Jessica Sorensen’s books awlie back, but didn’t love it — thought it was just okay. Maybe I should try her again with this book! :-)
