I loved this book. Holden and Karlie are so great for each other their chemistry is off the charts HOT! Holden is simpley sex on a stick. Jared has to be the best big brother ever and Katy is so sweet like the big sister that Karlie never had. All of them had really painful and unfortunate childhoods until Dan and Patsy saved Karlie and Jared. They're two very special people. Holden is so afraid to love and to trust enough to be loved. Karlie is just the girl to help him see what an amazing man he has become. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
Did not disappoint! Definitely worth the $
Unraveling, the first from this series of companion books was one I loved. It’s not enough to say how curious I was to know where the author was taking these two characters. It’s worth highlighting the author building bases for Holden and Kalie’s spin off story. I must say I found a Karlie likeable and the way her character is built really captures the age in which it’s based, but who actually stole my heart was Holden. This character is so complex, I felt empathy with him and how his whole life he’s been fighting to survive. Surviving abuse, abandonment, lack of love, struggling to succeed and, to complicate his world, surviving feelings that could smash all the barriers he’s established between the way he portrays himself and who he really is. I was captured by seeing how passionate it was for Karlie and Holden to resist their emotions. The biggest credit I can give Mrs. Smeltzer is that, just like its predecessor Undeniable, the story captures the reader in a path of character growth but both stories being completely different and one not overcoming the other, but it outstands this story’s construction. Unraveling is the story of two who have; earned to love each other, question and desire from afar, until the moment their feelings unravel them off their inhibitions. Once they learn who they are and what they really feel, they’ll have everything to build that future dream full of love both have always wanted
