Letting go might be the key that unlocks her pleasure…

Attorney Cassie Blaire has spent most of her life living by rules. Rules that keep her life sensible, and on the right path. But five years after losing her husband, Cassie is saying sayonara to “sensible.” And it starts now—with indulging a need she’s long denied.

When he arrives in Colorado, all Brad Steele wants is a scotch before he has to play nice in the first face-to-face meeting with his co-counsel in an ugly divorce case. But instead, he finds her—a lush, inviting stranger whose dark eyes invite him to sin...and thirst turns into a raw, undeniable hunger.

Now Cassie is initiated into a world that has nothing to do with being sensible, and everything to do with sensuality. Under Brad’s guiding touch, she’s receiving an education in desire—one that breaks all of the old rules, and explores tantalizing new ones. And once she learns that her naughty one-nighter is her arrogant co-counsel, all of her objections will be sustained...

I received this book for free from The Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

One Line: While it has its charms, it was a miss for me.

In My Opinion: Worth a try!

Unravel Me was another minor miss for me. There were some parts I liked, but for the most part, it was lacking that spark. Maybe because the author was trying have this book be part BDSM and part emotionally touching romance, it just didn’t mesh well for me. I felt like the characters acted one way in a certain scene, then turned into different characters in other scenes. Things just didn’t flow as smoothly as I liked.

As far as the sexy times, it was okay for me. Cassie likes to be a sub and Brad like to dominate, but everything was a bit tame it was surprising how quickly they advanced in their physical and emotional relationship without really knowing each other. I get how sometimes having amazing sex with someone can make you feel like you have a connection with them, and let’s face it, that’s how these books tend to start out, but I didn’t really “see” it here. And after the fallout, it kind of bugged how things were resolved. I’m all for the “grand gesture” and it sucked that it didn’t happen here.

I’ll admit, the ending was rather sweet and that was probably the best part for me, but it really didn’t save the rest of the story for me. There might be others out there who will enjoy the sweet, emotional moments mixed in with the gritty bedroom scenes, but this one wasn’t for me.
