Review: Unleashed and Rock Me by Cherrie Lynn

20130818-101856.jpg
Hey!!! I hope all of you are doing very well. I’ve been reading quite a bit lately, but decided to review these two books because they aren’t more of the same.
I have to say, these are adult books, not YA novels.
So… Here goes….
Book #1
Unleashed

Synopsis:
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 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…

My thoughts:

Evan and Kelsey have a weird friendship. Kind of like best friends but at the same time a bit awkward, given that their spouses or significant others cheated on them with each other.
Evan is a hot, laid-back lawyer who has a lot of fun flirting innocently with his friend Kelsey. Kelsey works in the law business as well, but on opposing sides. Kelsey’s character is a bit too naive and bit too ” teen-like” for my taste, at least for the first 75% of the book. Although sometimes I thought the characters to be a bit plain, she’s very funny at times, especially when she daydreams of Evan. The story is completely centered around the plot and everything that’s going on with Kelsey’s ex husband, who is now Evan’s ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend. Yeah….
While they are in Hawaii spending Evan’s would- be honeymoon, Kelsey confesses of her long-time love for Evan. Here, they start a tentative relationship, which blossoms and unfurls deliciously, of course, until they have to head home and face their exes.
These are pretty much your typical, successful adults who struggle when things don’t go as planned.
It is a fun, quick read and would recommend it if you get tired of the angsty, crazy novels.

Book #2
Rock Me

The second book in the Ross siblings series, Rock Me, is about Evan’s little brother Brian and Candace.
Candace Andrews has had enough of pleasing others. In an act of birthday rebellion, she sets out to please herself—by walking into the tattoo parlor owned by her cousin’s ex-boyfriend. All she wants is a little ink, and Brian’s just the guy to give it to her.

As soon as she submits to his masterful hands, though, the forbidden attraction she’s always felt for him resurfaces…and she realizes the devilishly sexy artist could give her so much more.

Sweet, innocent Candace is the last person Brian expected to see again. She’s everything he’s not, and her family despises him. He doesn’t need the hassle, but he needs her, and this time no one is taking her away. Not even those who threaten to make his life a living hell.

Backed into a corner, Candace faces the worst kind of choice. Cave in to those who think Brian is a living nightmare…or hold her ground and risk it all for the one man who rocks her world.

My thoughts:
For me, Rock Me had better defined characters, not so plain and two-dimensional as Unbreakable. Candace was too innocent, unbelievably so. So that was a little too much for me at first, but then realized that extreme naivetè is a part of the story and the unfolding the plot. Brian is extremely hot and sexy, a tattoo artist and your typical metalhead. ( I guess that’s why I liked him so much) . The writing inmerses you in the story effectively and makes for a fun read. This one is perfect for those nasty waiting rooms.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for reading!!
