Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: December 4, 2017
I once loved a boy who grew into a man.
A man that promised me stability, loyalty, and a lifetime of security. I had it all—at least I thought so. Until mere minutes with someone else made me want for more. More than I already had. Forbidden wants that I shouldn’t wish for.
Cade Ryder was everything my Ivy League pedigree should have stayed away from. Every sane part of my existence screamed for me to keep my distance.
Distance from where he worked. Distance from him, his body, and his soul-searing eyes.
But the more I stayed away, the more our lives merged. Now my life—my normal—is unraveled. My heart, my hope, my new future all in the hands of a tall, tatted bartender.
I planned my forever with the perfect man. But sometimes the heart wants more than stability, more than security, more than what others want for you. One thing’s for sure—destiny can’t be planned.
Unraveled in the first book from her latest series The Ryder Boys and I am so happy because this book was lovely! Love it! It was like a perfect crescendo- It had just the right amount of angst, frustration, ‘forbidden’ longings and just the right amount of uber hotness.
Three sentences in, I literally went from “huh?what?” to “WHAT??!! so it’s safe to say that Mia Kayla got me hooked from the very first sentence.
I’d like to take a moment to calm my nerves- Cade Ryder ladies is the best of both world! Trust me on that. I admit the first time I ‘met’ Cade I was like “Well aren’t you cocky! *scoff* “. He is so cocky and confident but I swear!I tried, but I couldn’t help but smile fall in love little by little. Cade Ryder truly is the best of both worlds. He is edgy, sexy and dangerously gorgeous with all the tattoos then on the flip side, he is an excellent business man and he has the smoothness of a gentleman. I loved that Cade could be so manly one second yet turn into such a gentle giant the next.
Angie is a sweetheart through and through. She is beautiful inside-out. But she people pleaser so that can turn her into a pushover and there were times where I am really put off with her indecisive nature BUT thank the lord… She grew some balls. hahaha!
Cade and Angie’s relationship was so effortless that you couldn’t help but get along with these two and fall in love.
I would like a moment to address something- a small spoiler-
When Cade sang Happy Birthday to Angie? Oh lord have mercy! That was THE most adorably romantic thing ever!!! A badass big muscled tattooed man singing-quite off tune- was swoon worthy and by far the sweetest gesture ever!
I will admit that yes, I did cry along with Angie witnessing the love between the Ryder boys and their beloved mother. That scene will make your heart hurt-It was so sweet. So gut-wrenchingly beautiful!
I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading more from this series.
