Unspoken was a great example as to why I love NA Contemporary Romance. There was passion, romance, and just enough drama to keep my heart thumping. The strength of this book was in the characters. Bo and AM's relationship made this a special book for me.




When I first met Bo in Undeclared, I was intrigued to say the least. He was a bit difficult to read, but I also only got to see little bits of him. In this book, we learn more about this smoldering hot guy. He grew up in a wealthy home, but it was an unhappy home. He was a popular athlete in high school, but his best friend was from the wrong side of town. Together they formed a lifelong friendship. After high school, Bo and Noah enlisted in the Marines. After a few tours, they returned home and went to college. While Noah had his reasons for ending up at Central, Bo was just along for the ride. He's been satisfying his adrenaline needs with fighting and women. But then he meets AM. She's very different than any girl he's pursued before. Her apparent lack of interest in him makes him want her even more. As he gets to know more about AM, he finds that he wants to take care of her, be with her, and show her how special she is. Sure, I loved Bo because he was a hot-tempered, sexy, flirt, but I fell in love with him because there was more depth to Bo than I initially realized. He broke my heart a bit, actually. But, I also loved the way he cared for AM.




Luckily, I've never been bullied. Sure, I've had my fair of gossip spread about me, but never anything that I really gave much attention to. But AM, this girl's reputation has been decimated. And the sad thing is, that it isn't true and she's spent the past year in hiding. She goes to class, but isn't enjoying college life. One mistake, one mistake, made when she was a freshman put her in this position. The sad thing is that it was a typical college hook-up, but for some reason AM was targeted. She has a few friends, she does well in school, and she even has a job, but she tries to avoid campus life as much as possible.  When she's partnered with the campus heart-throb for biology class, everything for AM changes. Bit by bit, Bo breaks down AM's defenses and she lets herself fall for and more importantly trust someone with her heart. Like Bo, I felt like there was more to AM. She's a rather complex character when I looked at the story overall. I felt for her and in some ways could even relate to her.




I have to mention the supporting characters. I was happy to see Noah and Grace again, but I really enjoyed getting to know their roommates a bit more in this book. I was excited when I realized that they will each be getting a book. I also really liked AM's best friend, Ellie. She was such a great friend to AM. She was supportive, honest, and really loved AM. She also had a bit of sass, which made me laugh.




Overall, I really enjoyed Unspoken. As I said before, the characters made this book special for me. Frederick's strength is her characterization. They are complex, sexy, likable, and relatable. I can't wait to see what happens next in the series! If you're looking for a new NA series to start, definitely check this one out!




Quotes:
~Bo was the poster child for every disaster that female singers warbled about. He'd break your heart and do it smiling. Worse, he'd make you think you were better off for having your heart broken because it was done in by him. -Loc 173




~I had a little wood in my pants and I needed her to be about fifteen degrees less cute in order for me to be able to obey her commands.-Loc 271




~"We need condoms for the heart."-Loc 2337




~"I'm going to tell you something." Bo reassured me, as if sensing I was tottering on the edge again. "I'm scared too, but neither of us are going to get what we want if we don't take a chance."
"I want to take this chance with you," I admitted.
I'd just done either the stupidest thing in my life or the smartest.-Loc 2441

Dull.

Not enough dialogue. Too much fluff. Epilogue is the best part. S.A.K.

    Good story

    This was a good story, but in places seemed to skim over the story in an effort to move on. Good story with likeable characters and a mostly well paced storyline. Its good, just not as good as the first one.

    Yawn

    I was interested until around page 350. It's about a 715 page so it was pretty freaking hard to finish the book. The witty dialogue disappeared and i started skimming. Still not sure why AM was the one for Bo to open up to. It rang false. Was pretty bored.
