My Rating: ★★★★★
A rich girl sick of doing her stepdad’s bidding. A young woman submitting to the same man for financial security. Can they escape his sadistic clutches and finally find true love?
22-year-old Abi Taylor is sick of being used as a puppet by her overbearing, money-hungry stepfather. Wealthy life or not, she wants out—the only question is how? But then her stepfather’s latest fiancée Emma shows up and Abi’s life is turned on its head.
She is inexplicably drawn to Emma. Their fierce attraction leaves her confused and vulnerable, but she soon realizes it’s the least of her problems as she is pulled into her stepfather’s corrupt and sadistic world where betrayal is rife, family means nothing, and sex is everything. Abi knows she needs to escape the man who controls her every move, but can she break free and keep it all—the money, her freedom and the girl?
Unshackled is definitely a scorching hot page-turner. With enough sex to keep your motor running but not enough to turn it into full-fledged porn (in my eyes), it’s a book you can feel comfortable reading for the story.
Abi is sweet and fairly naive, making her a good focal character, even though you don’t really learn a lot about her. Her step father is a grad A jackass who you’re eager to see brought down a few pegs. And Emma is gorgeous with a backbone of steel.
Following along as Abi untangles the web of deceit woven around her is exciting and heartbreaking. The relationship she builds with Emma will have you reaching for a fan.
I heartily recommend Unshackled to anyone who’s into steamy intrigue stories.
