Review: Unafraid by Melody Grace
The first time I saw her, I knew this girl was wilder than any stallion I’d ever trained…”
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?
This book was positively delicious. I have been following The Beachwood Bay series since Melody Grace released book 1 and in all honesty, they get better everytime. Brit and Hunter start one summer with a one night stand, no strings attached. Three years later they are thrown back together, Brit still suck in Beachwood Bay wishing she was anywhere else and Hunter trying desperately to escape his parents, social obligations, and guilt. This is the story I imagine when I think of true love, the kind of love that is timeless, limitless, and unexplainable. Brit and Hunter are irrevocably drawn to each other, even if Brit tries to deny it.
Brit is a strong, kick *ss character, she is rough around the edges and unpolished and I love that about her. Hunter is amazing, he is sexy, sweet, determined, persistent, and conflicted. Hunter is carrying the weight of the world around and he masks it so well. I never saw the pain that he was holding onto. Where as Brit puts on a front to mask her pain. Hunter’s parents are a special type of toxic and when push comes to shove, Brit and Hunter’s love is enough to concur any fronts. It was a truly beautiful story and I read it in one sitting because I simply could not put the book down.
“Everybody’s got their secrets, Brit. Some people are just better at hiding their scars.”
