Unraveled was a likable sexy read but for some reason I just didn’t love it. I mean, I liked it, hence the 3 stars, but there was something about it that held back potential for more star earning.
As a personal fan of this series, I was super excited for Gray’s story after remembering him from Bo’s book, Unspoken. I’ve always liked books with military themes but for some reason between the writing and the characters it kind of fell short for me.
I think what tipped it for me was the fact that Gray seemed easily persuaded or influenced. You can tell that he loves the allegiance and brotherhood that the military gives you but you can also see that deep down he’s at this point where he's already done his time and is debating a new direction in life.
As for Sam, well, she’s the widower of a fallen soldier. Enough said.
With Sam, it’s the 50/50 chance that tragedy may strike twice for her and once again take away the life of the man she loves. But then again, that's the bargain you take in love and war. Is she willing to open up her heart and risk it again?
A very sweet and steamy romance that was just okay in my book. I hope the next installment will be on Tucker or Hamilton!!

For four years, Grace Sullivan wrote to a Marine she never met, and fell in love. But when his deployment ended, so did the letters. Ever since that day, Grace has been coasting, academically and emotionally. The one thing she’s decided? No way is Noah Jackson — or any man — ever going to break her heart again.
Noah has always known exactly what he wants out of life. Success. Stability. Control. That’s why he joined the Marines and that’s why he’s fighting his way — literally — through college. Now that he’s got the rest of his life on track, he has one last conquest: Grace Sullivan. But since he was the one who stopped writing, he knows that winning her back will be his biggest battle yet.

Whore. Slut. Typhoid Mary.
I've been called all these at Central College. One drunken night, one act of irresponsible behavior, and my reputation was ruined. Guys labeled me as easy and girls shied away. To cope, I stayed away from Central social life and away from Central men, so why is it that my new biology lab partner is so irresistible to me?
He's everything I shouldn't want. A former Marine involved in illegal fighting with a quick trigger temper and an easy smile for all the women. His fists aren't the danger to me, though, it's his charm. He's sliding his way into my heart and I'm afraid that he's going to be the one to break me.
Impulsive. Unthinking. Hot tempered.
I allow instinct to rule my behavior. If it feels good, do it, has been my motto because if I spend too much time thinking, I'll begin to remember exactly where I came from. At Central College, I've got fighting and I've got women and I thought I was satisfied until I met her.
She's everything I didn't realize I wanted and the more time I spend with her, the more I want her. But she's been hurt too much in the past and I don't want to be the one to break her. I know I should walk away, but I just can't.
