Review of UNAFRAID

  by Melody Grace

 ~ Synopsis

"The first time I saw her, I knew this girl was wilder than any stallion I’d ever trained. She was headstrong, wounded, passionate and free. And I had to have her…"

Brittany Ray doesn’t care about her bad reputation. Growing up in a sleepy beach town with a junkie mom and a runaway dad, Brit’s learned the hard way that the people you love will only let you down. It’s no use hoping for love or happiness. Some dreams aren’t meant for girls like her.

Hunter Covington is one of those dreams.

Gorgeous, charming Hunter is damn near perfect—and it’s killing him. Son of Charleston royalty, he’s been trapped in a gilded cage since the day he was born. Now he’s breaking free. He’s quit law school to restore his grandpa’s old horse ranch, trying to soothe the demons in his soul. But Beachwood Bay is full of old ghosts, like the mysterious girl who spent an unforgettable night with him—and then slipped away before dawn. Brit. 

Everything about her screams danger, but Hunter doesn’t care: he’s never felt a connection so deep. And try as she may, Brit can’t resist the desire consuming her —or the safety she finds in Hunter’s arms.

A reckless passion. An undeniable bond. Scarred by their pasts, Brit and Hunter fight to heal old wounds. But will dark secrets tear apart their new beginning? And when love is the biggest risk of all, can they find the courage to face the future unafraid?

~ Review

I was eagerly awaiting the release of UNAFRAID and Melody Grace did not disappoint.  Just to clarify so no one is disappointed, Emerson Ray only makes a small appearance in the book. However that being said HOLY HELL hello Hunter Covington!   

This story was the story of Brittany Ray.  The girl who has been left behind so many times that she doesn't feel worthy of anyone's love. But 3 years ago she was the one who walked away from him and he has haunted her everyday since . 

Hunter is from a well to do family that spent summers in the small town of Beachwood Bay but his return is for more than fixing up his Grandfather's old ranch.  Hunter is a man on a mission to claim what walked away from him....Brit.

Let the swooning begin....Hunter had such determination in breaking down Brit's walls.  He was compassionate and more than willing to give Brit an opportunity to fill her dream of becoming  a designer.  But Brit has fire and determination of her own and she fights him at every turn.

The chemistry between the characters was definitely HOT!  Their game of cat and mouse only intensified their need for one another.  One scene definitely speaks volumes....who knew a barn could be!

While family obligations and guilt lie heavily on Hunter's conscience, Brit is left to fend for herself .  Until she has had enough and decides it's time to lay all of her cards on the table. I can honestly tell  you I was reduced to tears thinking that a happy ending was not in the cards for Brit.  But Melody Grace proved me wrong and left me with a smile on my face.
