Title:  Unethical
Author:  Jennifer Blackwood
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Publication Date:  October 20th 2014 by Entangled Embrace

Plot:  Love burns hotter the second time around…

Two years ago, the medical world was shaken by scandal, and Payton Daniels’s family was at the center of it. The second she graduated, Payton left everything behind―her high school sweetheart, her family, and the controversy surrounding her mother’s death—and hid within the anonymity of college. But Payton’s ex, Blake Hiller, hasn’t forgiven her for leaving, and when he enrolls in the same medical ethics class, she panics. She can’t run the risk of him telling everyone who she really is.

As if being at the same university isn’t enough, both Blake and Payton land the same internship. Forced together, their passion for each other reignites, but when Payton is asked to testify in her father’s high-profile trial, she must choose between risking her acceptance into medical school to help her father, and losing every connection to her past—including the only guy she’s ever loved.

☆ I received an ARC via GCR Book Tours + the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆

Unethical was a mixed read for me. On one hand, I liked it, and the other, I was a tad floundered bit floundered by the excecution.

Going into it, I was initially pumped about a new and out of the box type of concept that Ms. Blackwood raises. Come on, a medical scandal of physician assisted suicide between husband and wife? What a bold and 'ballsy' topic to bring forth in a story!

Sadly though, I just did not connect with the writing entirely.

While I do appreciate Jennifer doing a terrific job on capitalizing on the subject's moral ethics and illustrating the outlash and scorn that poor Peyton has to experience because of it, I just did not feel as if the implementation of this story went in the direction I had hoped for.

I mean, I do get Peyton's trauma from the ordeal and her whole unresolved issues with ex boyfriend, Blake. I really do.

I just didn't get why the story felt so anti-climatic and disappointing for me and why the secondary characters just felt like unneeded fillers.

I guess what I am getting at, is that everything from the tone of the book, to the plot venture and character personalities just didn't click for me.

It's not like it's a bad book, because it's not. It’s just personal taste is all. I’m sure many of you will love it and so I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a read that deals with second chances at love, some angst, medical lingo, and a sprinkle of lightheartedness!

Much love and good luck on your book adventures Ms. Blackwood!!♥
