~ Under the Covers
I think I fell for Brendon in UNCONDITIONAL when he “didn’t” get the girl. Don’t discount him as just a meat-head who is just into keeping his body in the best shape. When we met him first he had just gotten over the heartbreak of losing THE ONE. Although he thought he was in love with Maci, all it took was one text message from Amanda to turn his world upside down.
UNFORGETTABLE is the story about Brendon and Amanda’s second chance. Because they never truly got over each other and their love is still burning strong. I really liked that the author gave them that break, especially for Brendon to become who he is today and stand on his own two feet. His personality can be too self sacrificing and he may have put things about his own dreams on hold had he been in a relationship.
Brendon travels from Australia to the US on Amanda’s text request that she needs him. Lets just say I sort of suspected part of what was coming, not going to give you any spoilers here. But twist after the reveal was a hard one to swallow. It tore me apart and it’s not until the very end that we get a resolution on it. Yeah, some tears might’ve leaked out.
As with the previous book in this series, the story is deeply emotional and I loved that about it. I just didn’t connect with Amanda as much as I wanted to, or as much as I did with Maci, in order for this book to achieve what the first one did for me. I didn’t understand her reasons for certain decisions she made so I couldn’t sympathize sometimes.
Overall, this was a great addition to the series full of heart and angst with great writing! I will be looking forward to the next story coming out which is about Amanda’s sister. You will fall for this little spitfire with her own demons to battle. I can’t wait!
“She had the same approach to life I did: live it, don’t dwell on it, regret is just wasted energy, exist for the now.”
“Life is to be lived to the fullest, and I lived it that way.”
“For all my self-deluded determination that I would walk away from Amanda Sinclair unscathed and untouched, I was utterly enslaved by her.”
“You keep being wonderful, I’ll keep you breathing, okay?”
