Emery appears to have the perfect life. Beautiful like no other, head cheerleader and girlfriend of the captain of the football team (who also happens to be the son of the town's richest lawyer and close acquaintance of her father), one would think she wouldn't have a care in the world. Nothing, however, could be further from the truth. Emery yearns to run away from the cuffs that bind her. But nearly no one ever leaves Ralingford. Determined to finally gain control over her life, Emery ceases her opportunity shortly after high school graduation, when during one of her father's business trips, she moves out of town purportedly under the guise of wanting to attend a university (rather than the town's community college).
There she meets Ryler. Sporting tattoos, a lip piercing and other immeasurable scars, Ryler is exactly the type of imperfect man that Emery's family would expect her to steer clear from. Emery, however, views an unconventional beauty in Ryler that draws her to him. Not even his arguably biggest flaw, that he can no longer speak, can keep her away. Finally free, she gets to experience her first few moments of true pleasure and beauty with Ryler.
Ryler, however, is leading a double life and soon the dark forces that previously controlled her world and Ryler's double life intersect, to call everything back into question. Will Emery and Ryler ever be able to truly break free of their pasts in time to find a HEA? Moreover, just what exactly is the extent of the dark past that Emery is running from?
Lovers of twisty, mysterious, suspense intensive romances will not want to miss Unbeautiful. Angsty, fast-paced and creative beyond compare, I can't wait to read Untamed to see how all the pieces of this complex puzzle fit together.
Go ahead and read the synopsis, it won’t give anything away. As you can see there are some serious secrets that both Emery and Ryler keep, but this installment only started to chip away at what those secrets might be. I don’t think the anything has even hit the fan yet. It’s going to be crazy and I’m going to be biting my nails. I had a knot in my stomach almost the entire time I was reading this story, but don’t get me wrong, I loved it. At one point Emery said she might get sick, and I swear I was thinking the same thing. There’s SO MUCH DANGER in this book…and it’s crack!
Let’s talk MCs. They are both gorgeous, insanely gorgeous. On the outside they look like opposites, with Emery being perfect, like a doll. Ryler is gorgeous in that bad boy way that speaks to all women. But that’s on the outside. It was the look in their eyes, the way they moved, the way they carried themselves that ultimately sparked the attraction. Then these two found out they had a bit in common, even if what they told each other was still vague. I wanted to know more and I was almost pushing my kindle to get them to spill secrets, but sadly I will have to wait.
So even though there’s danger and total insanity going on there was still time for a romance. It only just started but the attraction was undeniable and frankly, I wish these two could catch a break so we could get a serious kissy session. If what we had is a preview…well, let’s just say it will be divine and intense and totally hot. (It’s almost killing me to write this review and NOT start book 2). ;)
The ending…let’s just say I started to get some answers but then I actually had even more questions. Book 2 is a must.
What didn’t I like? Nothing. I loved every single page and word of this. I kid you not.
Rec this? Hell yes! If you love an intense story with plenty of suspense and a romance to boot, Unbeautiful is a must for your TBR.
I was going back and forth between liking and not liking the story...there were so many "bad guys" in it and so many awful occurrences that it was hard to read (when there are not very many likeable characters it is a struggle to enjoy the book)...but the biggest problem for me was the lack of explanation and abrupt ending with all those loose ends. I hope for Emery's sake, things work out for her and Ryler and am curious to know exactly what is real and what is imagined.
