A 80 page free well-written mostly narrative story of a woman returning after ten years to the Arizona town where she had a bad girl rep. Lots of unresolved angst, anger, and resentment. Explicit 5 page sex scene and adult language. An excerpt for the next story in series included.

I was lucky enough to receive this book as an ARC for an honest review and quite honestly, Lauren Hawkeye has written another amazing book. I was sucked in from the very first page and was kept on a roller coaster of emotions until the very end. Lauren Hawkeye has the ability to let her readers experience the journey of her characters right along with them. Unspoken is a beautiful, emotional, and captivating story of love and healing, second chances, and moving on. It is a story of love and pain, fate and circumstances, forgiveness and hope. It is a story about love with no limitations and that somethings in life are worth fighting for.

Lauren Hawkeye has said that this isn’t her usual plot but boy did she nail it! It was very deep and the story was painful to the hero and heroine and let me tell you, the writing was so well done that you felt every stab in the gut. All I can say is “wow”. I'm anxious to read the next book.

Loved this book! Only problem was lack of editing and or proofreading. It was very frustrating to have to determine the author's meaning so many times during the read due to misspellings and just plain wrong words. However, I am going to read the sequel and give her another chance. Her writing is that good.

I sure am glad that this was free. It was like she never proofread it at all. Some sentences were hard to understand as the wrong word was used, i.e. with instead of wish. It was boring and very slow. Glad I read it so I don't pay good money for any of her books. I have never written a review of a book before but I had to on this one.

It was a very short book. It's a prequel to Untouched, but you do not need to read this book in order to read Untouched. They both stand alone and lend little or nothing to each other. This book is about Ellie and the other is about her sister Alexa. If there was more substance to these books, you might actually need to read them both, but as it is, they just touch the surface of each woman's lives.

This is a short story and should be read before the next novel in the Florence set. It sets up the background for the next book. Ti wasn't particularly sexual in nature, but it was titillating.

I really enjoyed this book. It was an emotional read and a great story. I thought the subject matter in the story was tastefully written. I would recommend this book and book 2 in the series Unspoken to everyone. (story has hea)

Good intro, but I wish it was a longer story This is a quick read and a good introduction to this series, I only wish it was longer so we could really get a chance to know Ellie and Gabe more, both through the flashbacks of when they were teens as well as now that they're adults. Ellie definitely didn't have it easy growing up, and yes she did rebel as a teen, but I couldn't help but feel her heartbreak when she told Gabe the entire story of what really happened all those years ago. You also can't help but to feel anger on Gabe's behalf when he learned of his father's involvement all those years ago; but the shocker is what Ellie discovered in her grandmother's attic, I can't wait to see how that situation will play out.

From the first moment I started to read this book I knew there was a very painful undercurrent to this story that went beyond the death of a family member. Obviously our main character Ellie is very angry and reluctant to return to the small town where her grandmother raised her. Her grandmother is dead - no loss there since Ellie felt her grandmother never cared for her. She must make a final determination with the property that was left in the will to her. The hardest thing though is coming back to face all the people from her past and their biased judgement. This story takes us back to Ellie's rebellious teenage years and we come to understand her wildness and lack of regard for rules and the law. But can we blame her? There is no love or nurturing in her life. She has been abandoned by both her father and her mother and then dumped on the lap of her aging grandmother who is not willing to raise another child. Toughest of all is facing "Gabe" her high school boyfriend. Promises were made back then and yet, Ellie was abandoned by him - or so she thought. This story will grip your heart and will not let go. The losses Ellie experienced will bring tears to your eyes and you will understand the burden she has carried inside for the last ten years. Amazing first story in this series. The secrets yet uncovered have me wanting to read the next installment Untouched, due to release soon. Lauren Hawkeye, you have stolen my heart again!
