Review of Undone (The Monroe Family #6) by Nicole Dykes

“And I was afraid we were going to be boring and normal”

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.):

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Sex with a good friend, no strings attached, no commitments. Sounds great, right?
Wrong. So wrong.
We thought we had beat the system. That we could be the friends that go into it eyes wide open with no delusions, but everyone else was right. That can’t work. Someone always falls.
And now we have to deal with the consequences.

*Undone is part 2 of Alex and Shriller’s story. It is highly recommended that you read Unraveled first.

***Mature content. Not recommended for anyone under 18

Alex and Shriller are finally back to continue their story. YAY!!

If you read Unraveled you know that Alex and Shriller thought they could beat the odds. Sex with a friend with no strings attached. This story picks up right where Unraveled left off (Yes, we all remember the cliffhanger).

Shriller has been gone for five months trying to get back into his racing career. He has not talked to any of his family back home because everything reminds him of Alex. Jax shows up at his house and gives him the third degree for forgetting his family and demands he comes home for the holidays.

Alex is trying to move on and has started dating Chris. They have a great relationship. He really is a nice guy and you kind of feel for him in this story. But Alex knows that her heart and body are made for Shriller. Once he finally comes back into town she has a hard time forgiving him for leaving and becomes crazy mad every time he is around.

I really love this story. You can feel the hurt, sadness, love and family vibe as you are reading the pages. There were times I had to scream and cry. I think Nicole did an awesome job on this and giving the readers some closure. Alex and Shriller are meant to be together.

Review of Unraveled (The Monroe Family #5) by Nicole Dykes

”Nah, you think I’m sexy. You totally want to do me.”

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 328 pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Shriller

I have everything I could possibly want. My career is at an all-time high, I have a hot, low maintenance girlfriend, and a group of friends that have become my family. Then it all comes crashing down and I’m forced to rely on that group to get me through. In particular, my friend Alex who I’ve known for half my life. Hopefully I can get out of this with our friendship and my balls still intact.

Alex

I finally have it all together. I’m engaged to an actual adult, instead of waiting around for my usual immature type of guy to commit. I own my own salon and live close to my best friend and her growing family. Then I get a phone call stating that my longtime friend had an accident and everything starts to unravel. Now it’s up to me to get him through this mess while keeping everything I’ve worked so hard to get.

*Unraveled is a New Adult Romance novel that contains mature content and is not suitable for anyone under 18.

Shriller lives on the edge. When a crash puts his career on hold he unwillingly goes back home to recover. He grew up with a bunch of friends that have now become family. Now that he is back in Kansas City going through surgery and recovery he is staying with his friend Alex. He has known Alex since they were both kids.

Alex is a strong woman that does not put up with anything. At least that is what all her friends think. She is engaged to a man that is trying to make partner at his firm. Alex is blind to the fact that her finance is trying to change everything about her. That is until Shriller tells her and gets very upset about it. When Alex finally opens her eyes, she realizes what is going on and breaks off the relationship. And who is home to catch her when she falls? Yep, the sexy Shriller! 

Things get heated quick with Shriller and Alex. They have known each other for so long that they are scared to damage their friendship. They promise each other that all will be fine and they can stop at any time. Well, we all know how this goes. The sex is incredible and then the jealousy sets in and then one realizes they have strong feelings for the other. This is exactly what happens. But with a twist. Shriller has never wanted to settle down and he realizes that he is in love with Alex. The one thing he promised Alex was they could go back to normal and he might just have to break this promise.

I decided I was going to read this at work. (I know, shame on me) Once I started I had a really, really hard time putting this down. I was so into this story I failed to realize I was nearing the end. And when it ended I literally screamed at my kindle. I need more!! Yes, this book is that good!!

I am so ready to see where Shriller and Alex go from here.
