Unbound - #review


An all-new novel from the author of After Hours.

She set out to find herself, and discovered the darker side of desire.

Merry’s lost a lot recently—first her mother, then close to a hundred pounds. Feeling adrift, she strikes out in search of perspective. A three-week hike through the Scottish Highlands was supposed to challenge her new body and refocus her priorities, but when disaster strikes, she’s forced to seek refuge in the remote home of a brooding, handsome stranger…

Rob exiled himself to the Highlands years ago, desperate to escape his own self-destruction. Haunted by regrets, he avoids human contact at all costs…but when Merry turns up injured, he can’t very well run her off. And as he nurses her back to health, Rob can’t resist his guest’s sweet demeanor—or her flirtatious advances. The igniting passion between them rouses a secret appetite Rob has long struggled to keep hidden. But Merry craves nothing more than to help Rob surrender to his desires, and the journey draws the lovers into an entirely different kind of wilderness.

My Review...
Since Wiling Victim I've been a fan of Cara McKenna and I wanted to love this book but it was more of a meh for me.

Rob is a recluse living in the middle of nowhere Scotland.

Merry is hiking through Scotland trying to find herself.

During Merry's journey she lands on Rob's doorstep and together they help each other in ways that they didn't even know they needed.

Lets start with the things I loved 
1) Loved Rob's storyline and how he dealt with his personal struggles and demons
2) Loved the idea of Merry and how she became a strong individual and how Rob brought that out in her

What I didn't love was all the inner dialogue it felt like this book went on forever and ever which for me didn't add to the story but it took away from the story.

So all in all 3 thumbs up!
