4.5 stars — Well boy howdy, that sucked me in and spit out a happy little reader. I was entranced almost from the very first line. I wasn’t expecting these two characters, but I LOVED them. I felt so much for them, and I really appreciated how different they were to many other couples I read about.
Tai was his own brand of awesomesauce. He was out and proud and over the top gay, and I loved it. He was sassy and snarky, but omg he had the biggest heart. And *my* heart hurt for all his insecurities. I didn’t even get *too* frustrated with him and how long it took for him to get over those hurts, b/c they were kind of big. And because I could see him making little steps forward along the way, even as he clung to his beliefs. Like an inner part of him knew he was wrong and was trying to help push him along the path.
And then we have Emmett. OMG Emmett was adorable. I loved his bi story, I can imagine it’s a familiar bi story. And while he struggled a bit with coming out, he wasn’t ashamed of being bi and I loved that. His story was just complex, with a lot of moving parts that needed to be thought about. I really felt for his grief, and his struggle back to normality. I appreciated his own insecurities, but he was just so loveable.
And they were SO GOOD together! Gah! Like, not perfect, but they balanced. Sometimes Emmett would push too much, and I would cheer when Tai would take a stand. They just gave each other what the other needed. And you could feel their chemistry from a mile away.
Lots of great secondary characters in this one as well, from the adorably loveable Leo (who felt realistic in his reactions along the way) to the super sassy Ivy. And even glimpses of V&V characters from other books (either in the past, or to come). I loved seeing Briar again, and having read his story, I loved seeing him paying it forward so to speak. And I’m so glad I have Jasper’s book to look forward to next.
So yeah. This was EXACTLY the story I was looking for in the V&V series, it hit ALL my buttons.
I loved Unguarded. It’s a beautifully written story with lovely and interesting characters. It’s entertaining, fun and very heartwarming. It has its angsty moments and it gave me all the feels, but it’s mostly lighthearted and heartfelt. There’s intense heat, explosive chemistry and laugh-out-loud fun, and a bit of danger too. It has everything you need to fall in love with a book and be unable to put it down.
I really enjoyed the veterinary clinic setting, and how it relates to the Vermonty feel of the book. Unguarded is a perfect fit for the World of True North. It has enough ties to the other books in the series to feel like an integral part of it but at the same time developing its own space to make it perfectly enjoyable as a standalone.
Tai and Emmett are delightful. By themselves and as a couple. They come from different worlds and their personalities are completely different, but you can feel their attraction from the beginning. The longing and their chemistry is off the charts. And they fit. And the way the story unfolds—the circumstances, the pace, the emotional turmoil—works perfectly.
I loved everything about it. The secondary characters are great. They give depth to the story. They add layers. Leo, Emmett’s son, is a wonderful kid. Ivy is also wonderful. She adds a lot of hilarity to the story but she’s also the voice of reason. Then there’s Briar and the Vino and Veritas setting. Jasper is an intriguing presence that adds a bit of heartbreak and sets the stage for his own story. Every detail adds something to love and appreciate in this book. I truly loved it and I highly recommend it.

It's well written, of course, is sweet, heart-breaking, humorous, entertaining, and beautifully romantic. So many feels.Tai is an utter delight, and is now up there amongst my favourite characters.You will not be disappointed, very highly recommended.
They were both such great characters, with their own baggage, trying to navigate a deep attraction and falling in love when their heads told them they shouldn't.
It was sweet, fun, heart wrenching, hot and very loving.
The characters are so well formed and even though they have their hang ups, like us all. They are so believable you could have Emmet as your vet, and Tai the sassy man he is joining forces on the front desk.
It is a great read, in fact a GREAT read.
