From the first page I was hooked, absorbed in the story of Paige, who after a disastrous streak of bad luck which included: losing her job, her roommate, her apartment and her boyfriend (all in that order), has moved to Mirabelle Florida to live with her parents while she looks for a job, but quite a few people have been less than friendly since her arrival, the town is full of judgemental gossipmongers who don't agree with the way Paige dresses or acts, referring to her as easy because of the way she looks, her bad luck continues with each and every job interview, and after another rejection her car breaks down in the middle of nowhere without a car, person or building to be seen, enter sexy and single mechanic Brendan, who has been the subject of the rumor mill over the years, sympathetic to her troubles he finds her a job and welcomes her into his group of friends it's not long before these two start a relationship together.
But the road to happily ever after is never a smooth one, and there will be things along the way that they'll have to deal with together, but will a secret destroy their happiness altogether or will they find a way to overcome this devastating secret that was kept under the best intentions?
Once I picked this book up it was so hard to put it back down again, Shannon's writing has a way of drawing you in and making you lose track of time, I've fallen in love with this series and I can't wait for the next books in the series to be released.
For those of you who love a fun, entertaining and quick read then be sure to pick this book up.

It took me a bit to get into the story because I felt there was too much description or that some things could have been skipped BUT I'm really happy I stuck it out. This book hit on every emotion. I laughed and I cried. The relationship Paige and Brendan had together was strong. They had a solid foundation of real love and respect for one another. The friendships were real. The small town life was real. The challenges and sadness you could feel pouring through the words. I loved the characters so much that I'm glad to see they will have their own stories as well. This was my first from Shannon Richard, but not my last.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Love, Loss and Starting Over
Take a beautiful, free-spirited city girl, down on her luck and a sexy small town mechanic who has his own demons crawling around his past, add a nightmarish twist, good intentions gone wrong, and a lot of self-pity and mistrust, what you come up with is a conflicted love story that will punch you in the solar plexus one minute, then have you panting the next. Undone by Shannon Richard is a good way to escape into a warm, funny and sometimes heart breaking contemporary romance that alternates between making you smile, and making you cry.Was this review helpful?

Forced to move back home with her parents, who have moved to a small Florida town, Paige sticks out like a sore thumb between her manner of dress, her beauty and her height, not to mention her free-spirited “conversational skills!” Of course, things get worse and her car decides to break down. Enter handsome, yet irritating Brendan who seems to know just what to say or how to look at Paige that brings out the snark in her. Can he break her walls down and prove that he is the guy for her or will his attempts to help her be seen with suspicion? I guess he does a pretty good job of burrowing into her heart, because they marry and life should be perfect, right? Except tragedy strikes and Brendan has been keeping secrets from Paige, an absolute deal breaker for her. Can Paige see beyond her grief long enough to see why Brendan kept things from her?
Undoneby Shannon Richard is true romance, the ups the downs, the misunderstandings and the lesson learned in life. Her characters are just so beautifully created, they come to live and I could hear them talking, feel their tension and emotion. Brendan is one of those guys that is protective, but has a side that loves to tease. Paige is more sensitive than her façade would show. A wonderful story of love, loss, and starting over, maybe more than once.

The cover of this novel originally caught my eye, then after reading the synopsis, I knew I wanted to check this book out. Undone is the first thing I have read by Shannon Richard, but it definitely won't be the last.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I fell in love with Paige Morrison's character in the first few pages of the book. She was not only likable, but so funny also, which was one of the things that made the book so entertaining. After having everything going for her, things turned around and in the matter of a few months time, her world fell apart. She lost her job, lost her roommate and apartment, and moved in with her boyfriend who she thought was "the one," only to have him break up with her a few months later. Paige now finds herself broke, brokenhearted, and homeless, now living with her parents again in a little town in Florida. Unfortunately, Mirabelle is one of those towns where the residents don't take to strangers to easily, especially outspoken ones whose style of dressing is something that you would see more in a big city rather than a small town - hence another strike against Paige. After another botched interview, she finds herself on the side of the road after her car breaks down, in high heels, with no cell reception, and has to walk for far too long in said high heels before she finds a phone. Once she does find the phone, she also has quite an experience where she finds it.
Enter at this point the hottie wrecker driver Brendan King, who also owns the shop where Paige's car will be repaired. Not only his he a hottie, he is cocky, has his own bad boy humor going on, he's a little bit arrogant, and a whole lot of sexy. He immediately rubs Paige the wrong way, and the banter between the two is quite entertaining, while the chemistry is through the roof hot. Brendan surprises himself by the way he feels about Paige, because he doesn't do relationships. Try as they may to fight it, a romance ensues between the two and the events that follow provide a most entertaining and enjoyable story.
I loved the secondary characters in the story also, who all play an important role and enhance the story in an impressionable way. Though the book starts off lighthearted and humorous, as it progresses, there are some really difficult things that Paige and Brendan go through, things challenge their relationship, their commitment, and their love.
Though this wasn't one of those books I couldn't put down, it was one of those books that I looked forward to picking up and reading when time allowed throughout the day. I enjoyed the writing, the plot, and the romance had just the right mix of steam with a good story behind it. Overall, I found Undone to be a very likable and enjoyable contemporary romance and would recommend it to those who are fans of this genre. I'll definitely be reading the companion novels in this series.
