Uninhibited by Melody Grace

"One week. No rules, no limits, just us. I can save you from this unrequited love of yours. And you... you can save me from myself."

Alicia Wright isn't the kind of girl to make out with a stranger in a dark alley. She's spent years playing it safe, pining after the perfect man - who's about to marry someone else. She doesn't know how to move on, until a sexy stranger turns her world upside down with a wickedly tempting proposition...

She'll rescue him from the edge of oblivion...

Rock star Dex Callahan swore his days of fame and debauchery were behind him, but the spotlight keeps calling his name. Determined not to fall into his old life, he goes looking for distraction -- and finds an intoxicating red-head with a mouth made for sin. One kiss could never be enough, so Dex offers her a deal: spend one week with him, and she'll forget her old flame ever existed.

Together, they'll ignite a passion that will change them forever...

No rules. No limits. As the whirlwind week of pleasure unfolds, Alicia discovers a desire she never knew existed - and the tortured heart Dex hides behind his charming smile. But can old loves so easily be replaced? And when the week is over, will their bond be strong enough to weather the storm?

Strap on a helmet and hang on tight because you're in for a wild, fabulously seductive ride!! I've been intrigued with Dex and Alicia since receiving a taste of them in Unrequited. Alicia is in love with Hunter, her best friend. It's a secret she's carried with her for years. But if you've read any of the previous Melody Grace Beachwood Bay novels, you know that Hunter's heart belongs to another. Enter hot rock God, Dex Callahan! And boy does he enter the scene in a blaze of hot kisses and dirty talking. One week. He's offering her one week to help Alicia get over her love from Hunter. They are dynamic together. Their story leaps off the pages at you, begging you to keep turning the pages. They are passionate and hot. And ohhhhh, that Dex Callahan's mouth! *Fans self* Exert I love: "Some things, you can't plan for. Some people, you know before you ever meet. Some loves are forever." Melody Grace has a way of making you smile, laugh, and feel every dang emotion that the hero and heroine feel. When I tell you to hang on tight, I mean it! I read this book cover to cover in less than a day because I couldn't put it down. If you haven't been introduced to any of the Beachwood Bay novels yet, please for the love of God! - go check them out! Start at the very beginning. Even though each book can be read as a stand alone novel, you are missing out on soooo much more if you do that. Like I said - grab your e-reader and hang on tight. This series is worth it! *ARC received for an honest review.

Unrequited and Uninhibited are the first two books I've read by this author but certainly not my last. I loved her writing style. She really knows how to build the passion, stir the emotions and draw you in. I ejoyed Dex & Alicia's story so much that I want to read all the others in the series. 4.5 stars

I first heard of this book when I signed up for the book blitz on my blog, I saw that the book was free a while later, so I downloaded the final version even though the author had kindly sent a copy during the tour for me to review.  At time of writing this review the book is still Free (16/08/14) and I would say #ONECLICK NOW!!! This is a Prequel novella to Melody Graces Novel Uninhibited, and you get to see how the main characters Dex & Alicia meet, the steam virtually hisses off the pages... I read this book in one sitting, I couldn't put it down and I NEED the next book... the last passage in this book makes you want it so badly, its not a cliff hanger in a bad sense, just a omg I need to carry on reading about this hawt broken guy and of course Alicia, but I am still a bit in the dark to why she would be so hooked on some guy who isn't into her?  You don't really get the full story on why Dex has been hiding away from the world, and the same goes for Alicia, but you do get a great read and base to the attraction the pair feel towards each other. The story is written well, the passion flies off the pages and boy that last bit .... I don't do spoilers so I am not quoting it but I did see it on another review, it was just a perfect hook to want you salivating for the next book! well done Melody for making my evening entertaining :D

WOW!!!!! Received an ARC copy from Netgalley for a honest review. OMG! Loved, Loved it! Storyline is well written, entertaining and hot. Love Melody Grace's writing style and the way she makes the characters come alive. Definitely a page turning book. Dex is a sexy bad boy rocker who OMG would make any girl drop her panties with his dirty mouth. He just oozes sex appeal and I say this while fanning my face. I loved Dex and Alicia together. They just click personality wise and sexual along with just being able to talk to each other. Would definitely recommend. Can't wait for more

*** ARC provided by the Author in return for an honest review*** First let me state, I am a huge Melody Grace fan. My favorite book by her will forever be Unbroken. But if ever there was a book that could try and steal that title, this would be the book. HOLY MOLY! What an amazing story and reading experience. Let’s be honest you have seen this plot before: the one week no strings attached hook up where the couple didn’t count on falling for each other. But I PROMISE it feels so different when written by Melody Grace that it isn’t even funny. She took it and turned it into something original and fresh. I enjoyed every minute of getting to experience the rollercoaster of emotions with the dirty talking Dex and Alicia, who you hope can let go of her unrequited crush to see what is right in front of her. The end result is simply magical. If you are a Melody Grace fan you will love this book. And if you are on the fence about diving into this spin off series, get off the fence and one click already! Then you can begin the lovely journey between two people who are meant to be together. You won’t regret it!

This book was hard for me to put down! The story drew me in from the start and kept me intrigued to the end. A wonderful storyline with intense characters and plenty of sexual chemistry. As the relationship between Dex and Alicia grows, secrets begin to surface. Enjoyed the story very mush and will definitely read more by this author. Received copy for review.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ Stars Uninhibited is the first book in Melody Grace's new series The Callahans.  This contemporary romance is hands down a must read for anybody that loves her books.  This is a well written story involving the explosive couple, Dex and Alicia that we met in the novella, Unrequited.  It begins two months after the night they met with Alicia pining away for someone that doesn't reciprocate her feelings.  We were given a brief glimpse into her loneliness before wondering could Dex be the one to change her life around.   Dex Callahan, rock star extraordinaire is every gal's wet dream.  I need more DEX!  He is definitely my new book boyfriend.  He has an air about him that exudes raw sexual appeal while remaining a down to earth kind of guy.  His pursuit of Alicia brings his alpha male side out and allows their relationship to explode on the pages.   Alicia is an extremely conservative business woman watching life pass her by.  She longs for intimacy from someone that views her as a close friend.  When she meets Dex, she is taken back by his motto to live in the moment. Dex proposes she spend one week at his beach house with him in order to change her mind.   When circumstances force Alicia to confront her feelings for her "mystery man" she turns to Dex to help her move on.  Dex wants more than one week with her, he wants her permanently.  Will Alicia realizes how much he means to her before it is too late?  Can Dex convince her to give their relationship a chance even before it begins?  Read this book to find out!  You will not be disappointed. ~TSRBR Hero:  5 stars Heroine:  4 stars Plot:  4.5 stars Steam Level: 5 stars Cliffhanger: No Would I recommend this book:  Yes.  This book is the perfect beginning to the series.  We are introduced to secondary characters hoping they will receive their own story too.   Would I recommend this author:  Yes.  Melody Grace is an exceptionally talented author.  Through her books, she evokes a variety of emotions allowing the reader to be blissfully swept away into the world she has created.  ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

One Week, No Rules, No Limits, Just us Who wouldn't jump at the chance to spend one week with a sexy, bad boy rocker to help ease the ache of wanting someone you can't have? Then to find out that bad boy isn't bad at all but oh so good? You can't help but fall in love with these characters and ache for them as they try and stumble through the broken hearts, new feelings and just life in general. Dex and Alicia are characters you can identify with as real people who are trying to make the best of the situations they were dealt. I couldn't put this book down and was reading at stop lights, gas fill ups and anywhere else I could squeeze a few words in until the book was over. I could have read about these two characters forever.

4.5 Scorching Stars! I absolutely loved this story. I was hooked from the first page and couldn't wait to get to the end to see how things would turn out for Dex and Alicia. The story was sweet, the characters were amazing, and I loved every dirty word that came out of Dex’s mouth! What I loved most of all was watching the characters deal with the issues they've been carrying around – Alicia’s unrequited love and Dex’s guilt – and seeing how they helped each other come to terms with those issues and start to heal. For Alicia, she has always had a fairy tale vision of what love should look like, and has been in love with her best friend forever. And even though he is now getting married to someone else, she just can’t seem to move on…until she meets Dex and shares one steamy night with him. Even thought that night has changed her, she tries to fight it…because Dex couldn't possibly be fairy tale material – it just couldn't be that easy, could it? And as all of her friends have either gotten married or are in relationships, she is really feeling the loneliness set in. ******** I've managed to push my yearning aside for so long, to live with my loneliness as best I can. I fill my evenings with work and social engagements, plan my weekends so there’s barely a moment to think. But it still comes creeping in, on a rainy Sunday morning when I’m snuggled alone on the couch, or a perfect summer’s night, when all I see are happy couples crowding the park around me. I want that, too. An arm draped around my shoulder, someone stealing half of the newspaper. A partner in life, the intimacy that comes from knowing somebody so well – their heart. Their body. Their soul. ********* Dex had all sorts of sexy going on – bad boy rock star, hot as all get out, and he could dirty talk the pants off of anyone! From the first moment he sets eyes on Alicia he just knows she’s the one that can help save him from himself…of course Alicia has other ideas and runs after their night together, and even when she finally calls he needs to convince her to his one week, no strings offer… ********* “Don’t back out now,” Dex says softly. “Or you’ll spend the rest of your life wondering what might have been.” ********* What I loved most about their relationship is that both Alicia and Dex see deep into each other to the person that exists below the surface, and Melody Grace does such a wonderful job transferring that to the written page. From the tender moments and sweet conversations, to helping each other learn how to live life… ********** “But you need to learn to trust what you feel. To take what you want. When it comes to matters of the heart, I’d always rather regret the things that I do than the things I didn't.” ********** …and to the steamy times that had a lot of dirty talking and hot love scenes, I immediately connected with the characters and became wrapped up in their story. Of course there were bumps and problems that arose in their relationship, and both Dex and Alicia make some mistakes, but watching Dex and Alicia find themselves and then each other was such an emotional and satisfying journey. I have not read any of the other books in this series and didn't feel that it impacted the story at all. Of course after reading this one I am now a fan and will be sure to go back and start at the beginning to enjoy the entire Beachwood Bay/Callahan series. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a fabulous love story that has lots of sweet, tons of steam, and makes you smile from the first to the last page.

Uninhibited takes place a few months after Dex and Alicia meet in Unrequited. If you’ve read it, or read my review, you know Dex and Alicia meet one night and have chemistry from the very start. (Sizzling HOT chemistry.) She’s trying to get over her crush on her friend and he’s trying to forget… something. They hook up and he propositions her to spend a week with him with no inhibitions. Just passion. She hasn’t taken him up on it when we begin this book, but it doesn’t take long before she changes her mind. I’ve missed enough time wishing for something. I need to make my life real. To experience something, and jolt myself out of this lonely daze. After finding out Hunter and Brit are engaged, Alicia decides to take Dex up on his offer for a week of passion. And oh boy! Do they find it. They also find something a little more real than just sexual chemistry (which they have plenty of!). There’s definitely a spark of something between them, but they’re both holding back, but for different reasons. We know Alicia’s secret–her unrequited feelings for her close friend. It takes some time to learn what Dex is trying to escape, however. There’s no doubt there’s some pain in his past and I hated learning how much guilt he was carrying around. Dex and Alicia were great together. He awakened the passion in her and showed her what it’s really like to matter to someone and she helped him come to terms with what happened and realize he does deserve love and all the other good things. It’s a bumpy road for the two of them, but the bumps and bruises just made it more realistic. “When I’m with you, there’s no room for anything else. You’re all I can think about.” “Reckless is one thing,” she adds. “But if you can find a man who makes you feel safe too… Well, that’s real magic.” I loved both Alicia and Dex. Alicia was relatable. Who hasn’t had an unrequited crush on a close friend at one time or another? It hurts and it sucks and it’s difficult to move past without running the risk of damaging the friendship. Dex was an enigma, but since readers get chapters from his POV, we actually knew more of what was going on in his head than Alicia did. Rock star or not, he was a genuinely good guy who just got caught up in a whirlwind lifestyle. He made some mistakes and people got hurt, but he also carried far more guilt around than he should. As far as secondary characters go, I also enjoyed Dex’s sister Tegan. I look forward to hopefully learning more about her in future books. I’ve still not gone back to read the books I missed in the Beachwood Bay series, but it didn’t impact reading this book all that much. Sure, I was a little lost on the history between Hunter, Brit and Alicia, but I could infer enough to get through the story. It’s safe to say this book can stand on its own. (I do have every intention of going back to read the other books, though… you know, when time allows.) Melody Grace is rapidly on her way to becoming one of my auto-buy authors. Uninhibited (am I the only person who has an impossibly tough time typing this title?!) is a solid 4.5-5 star book. It’s sexy, swoony and there’s more than just romance to it. Some things, you can’t plan for. Some people, you know before you even meet. Some loves are forever. I received a copy of this book from the author, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

UNINHIBITED was an awesome read. Written from both characters POV, you feel their emotions, their regrets, their passion... And fall in love right along with them.  The characters are unique and real. Their relationship is honest and passionate. Alicia is a sweet girl, who's life is built around predictability & order.  "I've missed enough time wishing for something, I need to make my life real." Dex is an unpredictable, fun bad boy, with a tortured past. Dark eyes, solid build & tattoos make me love him even more. "You need to learn to trust what you feel. To take what you want." They're passionately drawn to one another from the start, but is their smoldering desire enough to break through the walls they've each built up around their hearts?  Their story starts in the novella, UNREQUITED. It's worth reading first, but either can be read alone. Received ARC for honest review.

Uninhibited is another hit from Melody Grace, I loved this! I’ve said this before, I‘m a BIG fan of Melody and the Beachwood Bay series. Uninhibited is the beginning of a new direction for the Beachwood Bay series. This part of the series called The Callahan’s will focus on The Callahan siblings, past favorites from the Beachwood Bay series will still be in this new part of the series. We first meet Alicia Wright in Unafraid. Alicia is all about doing what she thinks is the right and safe thing to do. For years she has been pining away for a man that is completely unaware of her feelings for him. To Alicia he is the perfect man, the only problem is he is about to marry someone else. Bad boy rock star Dex Callahan has given up everything, music, fame, girls and partying. Now hiding away from all that, Dex is still hunted by events in his past. A chance encounter between Alicia and Dex leads to a night of passion, which you can read all about in Unrequited. One night is not enough for Dex, he needs more of Alicia. Dex offers Alicia one week of passion and she’ll forget all about her perfect man. Wanting nothing more than being able to move on from a man she can’t have Alicia accepts. The one week spent together turns into more than just passion, secrets are revealed and feelings grow deeper but will Alicia be able to let go of her safe perfect life to be with someone who makes her feel crazy with passion and alive. Uninhibited might have been Melody’s hottest book yet. Dex and Alicia were steaming up the pages. The chemistry between these two was hot!!!! I completely fell in love with Dex in Unrequited. He is a sexy rock star with a very dirty mouth! :) I can’t wait for Unstoppable. Tegan Callahan and Ryland James’s story should be very interesting and I need it like now!!
