Publisher's Summary

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 that 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.

Horrible Narration

Is there anything you would change about this book?

First let me start by saying I read Rock Me And Leave Me Breathless and they definitely lived up to their titles. I also bought Unleashed on ebook but when I heard it was coming out on audio, I was thrilled. Since I am an avid audio book listener, I was counting down the days. The story was great, but the narration had me struggling to get thru. As a Texas girl, I can pinpoint a southern accent a mile away. She sounded like a boring monotone British professor. Not at all how I pictured any of the characters to sound. Ultimately it was a big letdown because I couldn't imagine any of them sounding like that.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Unleashed?

The hot sex, hot guy, and amazing location. The intimacy between Kelsey and Evan is descriptive and intense. That makes it hard to pick one moment since they have many.

What didn’t you like about Alix Dale’s performance?

She was not in tune with any of the characters. I'm not sure where the boring British professor came into play but it just didn't work for me. And she didn't separate the characters very well.

Any additional comments?

I hope that Rock Me and Leave Me Breathless will be made into an audio book, but please consider using another narrator. Need someone with more of a southern accent.

Horrible narator

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator is extremely nasal and very hard to listen to. Not sure if I will be able to finish the book.

Would you be willing to try another one of Alix Dale’s performances?

no

Pretty good start to the series

3.5-4 stars

This was a pretty good story. I read Leave Me Breathless and knew the characters from that story. It was nice to see how Evan and Kelsey got together.

Kelsey is a nice woman that hasn't had a good personal life. She married a man that didn't treat her well and ended up leaving her for her friend's fiancee. The friend, Evan, is someone she's always wanted but they've always been friends only. Once their significant others split with each other, Kelsey and Evan find themselves in a tough position, fighting to keep their friendship.

Evan's a good guy and a lawyer. He's always been a player and when he finally gets engaged his fiancee cheats on him and leaves him. He's not really broken up by it and moves on. When he realizes he still has a prepaid honeymoon that he needs to use, he invites Kelsey along. He's always had an attraction to Kelsey but the timing was never right for them and he wonders if now might be the time.

We get to see an intro to Kelsey and Evan before the trip to Hawaii and the attraction between them is strong. Once they get to Hawaii they finally end up succumbing to their attraction. Kelsey is very unsure and freaked though and still unsteady from her divorce. She keeps thinking things won't work out and doesn't have the confidence she should. Evan on the other hand, is seeing that Kelsey is just what he wants and now is the perfect time. He goes about trying to convince her they will work together.

Things are actually going pretty well for them when trouble sends them back home abruptly (a couple days ahead of schedule). They hadn't had time for a clear discussion and, with pressures from friends and family (and Exs) their new relationship doesn't fair well. There's some drama and courage is needed to get things back on track. Fortunately, Kelsey has it in her to make a leap and her and Evan end with a good HEA.

This was an enjoyable story. I like Kelsey and Evan and was happy for their HEA. I'll definitely be reading the rest of the series. I'd recommend this story. :D

Light, everything's great, romance

I have nothing bad to say about this book nor anything particularly great. It's a fine book but not memorable. It's about two old friends finally getting together and having the best sex ever. But the couple has no real issues and no real struggle to get together other time and relationships in between. So it's pretty predictable, but there's no attempt to make it otherwise. So it's a good listen for someone who wants an easy, romantic read with a lot of sex that's only a little bit, very little, explicit. I like this narrator, generally, but I would've preferred another one for such a light story. So my narrator rating is more like a 2.5 as used in this particular story. It was a bit too easy, too pat for me. Though the author surely knows how to write sensual, romantic love scenes.

Friends for 10 Years, Never Connected Until Fate Takes Over

Kelsy catches her husband in bed with the fiancée of his best friend Evan....Evan who Kelsy had loved since college but he never returned her feelings...or did he.
A typical college guy who didn’t want a relationship and knew that that’s what Kelsy would be..until he introduces her to his best friend.
A trip to Hawaii...chances taken, a man who wasn’t willing to put himself out there, but luckily she Kelsy does.
A number of sweet and hot scenes and wanting to smack Evan in the head for being an idiot and having too much pride.
Enjoyable first book of the series.

but why is she always crying????

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph...damn woman was ALWAYS crying. FOR NO REASON. I also wasn't a fan of the reader, but mainly just the fact that Kelsey was crying all the time.

Unleashed

Good story. Hate the idea of waking in on your husband having sexy with someone else. Everything happened for a reason. The one thing that I had a hard time with was the narrator speaking the male voice. It made me cringe. It sounded kind of winnings. Over all good story.
