Unraveled Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

Undeclared (Woodlands #1)
For four years, Grace Sullivan wrote to a Marine she never met, and fell in love. But when his deployment ended, so did the letters. Ever since that day, Grace has been coasting, academically and emotionally. The one thing she’s decided? No way is Noah Jackson — or any man — ever going to break her heart again.

Noah has always known exactly what he wants out of life. Success. Stability. Control. That’s why he joined the Marines and that’s why he’s fighting his way — literally — through college. Now that he’s got the rest of his life on track, he has one last conquest: Grace Sullivan. But since he was the one who stopped writing, he knows that winning her back will be his biggest battle yet.


Unspoken (Woodlands #2)
Whore. Slut. Typhoid Mary.

I've been called all these at Central College. One drunken night, one act of irresponsible behavior, and my reputation was ruined. Guys labeled me as easy and girls shied away. To cope, I stayed away from Central social life and away from Central men, so why is it that my new biology lab partner is so irresistible to me?

He's everything I shouldn't want. A former Marine involved in illegal fighting with a quick trigger temper and an easy smile for all the women. His fists aren't the danger to me, though, it's his charm. He's sliding his way into my heart and I'm afraid that he's going to be the one to break me.

Impulsive. Unthinking. Hot tempered.

I allow instinct to rule my behavior. If it feels good, do it, has been my motto because if I spend too much time thinking, I'll begin to remember exactly where I came from. At Central College, I've got fighting and I've got women and I thought I was satisfied until I met her.

She's everything I didn't realize I wanted and the more time I spend with her, the more I want her. But she's been hurt too much in the past and I don't want to be the one to break her. I know I should walk away, but I just can't.



Unraveled (Woodlands #3)
Twenty-five-year-old Sgt. Gray Phillips is at a crossroads in his life: stay in the Marine Corps or get out and learn to be a civilian? He’s got forty-five days of leave to make up his mind but the people in his life aren’t making the decision any easier. His dad wants him to get out; his grandfather wants him to stay in. And his growing feelings for Sam Anderson are wreaking havoc with his heart…and his mind. He believes relationships get ruined when a Marine goes on deployment. So now he’s got an even harder decision to make: take a chance on Sam or leave love behind and give his all to the Marines.

Twenty-two year old Samantha Anderson lost her husband to an IED in Afghanistan just two months after their vows. Two years later, Sam is full of regrets—that she didn’t move with her husband to Alaska; that she allowed her friends to drift away; that she hasn’t taken many chances in life. Now, she’s met Gray and taking a risk on this Marine could be her one opportunity to feel alive and in love again. But how can she risk her heart on another military man who could share the same tragic fate as her husband?

First line:
"You sure I can't give you a ride, Sgt. Phillips?" the sixty-year-old woman I'd sat next to on the airplane asked for the fifth time.

I love the Woodlands series. All the men are hunky and the girls are sweet and the stories amazing. I love reading about soldiers and delving into the minds of these men who have served and the girls they fell for. I think Unraveled is my favorite one in the series. I love Sam, and seeing her come out of shell and start to love and live again was awesome. I also loved watching Gray overcome his trust issues. These are Jen's ideas for what Gray and Sam look like, I I must say, that  agree wholeheartedly.


Unraveled has it all: intense scenes, humorous scenes, sweet scenes, fun scenes. I can't put into words how much I loved the book. Sam and Gray are my favorite couple of the year so far. They understand each other amazingly well. Gray is right, Sam is the perfect military wife. She also broke my heart several times when talking about Will. I love that Gray understood that she would always love Will, but that she was packing up those feelings and making room for Gray. And the scene towards the end in the yarn shop with the old ladies had me dying of laughter.

Unraveled is an amazing book for romance lovers and people who love reading about soldiers. It has everything you could want from a book. Undeclared and Unspoken are equally as awesome.
