I truly feel that the author got the balance in this book wrong. I felt that the h was a pitiful girl, who didn't have a lot going for her. Her family doesn't care for her, she's loved the H for 6 years (he has no idea) and now she's pining after him and of course he was her first kiss and she's never given herself to anyone. The H wants to be loved by everyone - he has 3 loving siblings even though he lost his parents whilst a teenager. He is gorgeous and women love him. Total imbalance before we start. Somehow the h gets the H to take notice of her and she uses another character to make him jealous. Eventually the H gives in and starts a 'secret' relationship with her. The more I read the worse it got. The H never really takes a chance on her and she gives him everything. It seems there always has to be a drama before he will make a stand. On the night of her birthday he disrespects her by being photographed out and about with 2 of his beautiful costars despite promising her he'd come back to her. She encouraged him every step of the way with his career and pushed him to go after the role he really wanted and he repays her by treating her badly once again. She finally stands up for herself and he lets her go without blinking. I thought the h was growing a backbone but when he eventually decides he wants her after a few months, she forgives him on the same day that he reappears. The ending was appallingly cliched with many of the characters from the other books being included in the 'make up' moment. It reminded me of a cheesy movie moment. The long and the short of this book is that the h was on the minus side and the H had everything going for him. There is no way to persuade me that these 2 would make it in the long run - the romance totally lacked credibility.
I've come to expect way more from this author and this was an absolute miss for me. I've preordered the next in the series and I'm hoping that Ms Grace will produce her usual fine work in June.
"You can hope and dream for something for years, and then get exactly what you always wanted, and it's nothing like you thought it would be. Real life isn't a dream, Blake. It's a lot messier and more painful than that"
Unwritten follows the story of Blake and Zoey. Zoey has always felt like an outsider. Her parents live a very busy life, never really having time for her. She's been shipped off from one school to another, basically raising herself. She had no friends. She was just alone. That is until she meets Blake. Blake gave her some kind words and showed her that she didn't need to hide who she was and that one day, things would be better. It was that moment that she fell for Blake....Years have passed and he never saw Zoey as anything other than the little sister type. Until one day, Zoey decided to take matters into her own hands, making Blake open his eyes to what's always been in front of him. Will Blake finally open his eyes and take a chance?
It's no secret that I am a big fan of the Beachwood Bay series, so when I find out that there is a new book coming out, I get completely giddy. I am addicted to this series and the characters. And this book was no exception. I fell in love instantly and couldn't stop myself from devouring each page.
This book had everything that I've come to know and love from the Beachwood Bay Series. It had the perfect amount of angst/drama, romance, and steam. The story flowed really well and the characters were super easy to connect with.
Blake was a charming, fun guy. But, in reality, he's just pretending. He has a lot of self loathing and has built his walls so high, that it makes it impossible to get through. He's so afraid to take a chance on something real and his fears almost make him miss out on something truly amazing.
"He needs me. I can feel it in the passion of his kiss, the desperate way he clings to me, trying so hard to express what words fail to convey.That this is everything. Him and I, together, right here. I fall into the moment, and know that no matter how hard I try, I could never find a love like this again"
Zoey....I felt so bad for her. Always on her own, never really feeling like she had a place in life, friends of her own or a place to call home. I just wanted to give her the biggest hug and tell her things would get better. She was such a kind person and always in Blake's corner, even when he didn't deserve it. Their road to their HEA was a bumpy one, but once they both got over their insecurities, it was so worth it.
There is a moment at the end, where a scene from one of my favorite movies was played out and that just made my heart swoon. I still can hear the song from that movie in my head. What am I talking about? Well, you'll just have to read it, won't you?
Unwritten is a wonderful addition to The Beachwood Bay series. It is a great friends to lovers story that will frustrate you, make you swoon and have you wanting to read more. If you are a fan of the Beachwood Bay series, you will not be disappointed. I definitely recommend checking this one out!
