I had a lot of fun visiting the blog tour stops today because I love reading other reader’s opinions, no matter what they were. I feel like I can get a sense of what worked and what didn’t for some and that always gives me food for thought. Plus, the effort that you bloggers put into these reviews and posts is really mindblowing. I appreciate and applaud you all.
Anna at Book Lovin’ Mamas doesn’t care who book 4 is about because she loves the Woodlands crew and she really loved Gray and Sam:
I LOVED this book. So much that I find it hard to express! Gray is just an all around fun character and I love that dirty mouth of his! Very hot! And it was nice to see Sam turn from the sad widow into the sexy young woman she really should be. Together these two have some crazy hot chemistry and it shows up loud and clear in those oh-so-hot sex scenes! And it’s not just that, they get each other like no one else does.
Bridger Bitches book blog Harper says that she liked the slow build and despite the 45 day time frame really felt like the connection between Sam and Gray was believable:
Holy smokes I love me some Gray Phillips!! This dirty talkin’ Marine had me wiggling in my seat while I read Unraveled! Jen gets a round of applause by me because this series is amazing and I can’t wait to get more of the Woodland series! Gray & Sam’s connection did not feel rushed at all. Their attraction to one another was instant and hot and steamy but during Gray’s leave they fell for each other more and more on an emotional and physical level. Even though the time together was short as a reader I felt like they knew each other forever.
Lauren at For the love of Books can’t wait for the next entry and enjoyed this one.
Have you ever been afraid to do something because you know what will happen? Or at least you think you know what will happen. Being afraid to take a chance because you’re scared history will repeat itself. That’s a lot of what this book is about. This is the third installment of The Woodlands series, but can be read as a stand alone.
Michelle at Give Me Books put together some eye catching graphics and said:
Overall, I enjoyed reading Unraveled. This book will leave you believing in second chances at life, love and most importantly to take adventures. Life is too short to wonder the what ifs…. Gray and Sam reminds us all we must live, laugh, love and never regret. I just want to thank Ms. Frederick for introducing us to Noah, Bo, and Gray. When these three men love, they really LOVE and put everything on the LINE. So if you are looking for a series, that will leave you with those butterfly feelings then I would highly recommend you to read the Woodlands Series. Just be prepared to sigh and swoon for Noah, Bo, and of course Gray.
Gabic at Gabic Reads said that the yarn shop scene had her howling with laughter. Here’s a confession. I’ve knitted but can’t do much more than purl and knit. In my drafts I kept spelling intarsia wrong. Sometimes I spelled it interstarsia. Other times instarsia. As Gray says, “fucking impossible is what it is.” I salute you accomplished knitters!
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.
I hope you know you bloggers are so damn creative and entertaining and are such a great and important part of this whole book business. I’m in awe of the time and effort you put into running your blogs and making everything look so fantastic. Kawehi put together this awesome collage. Thank you!
She didn’t love Unraveled because she wasn’t convinced about Gray but overall she had nice things to say about it and she’s on board for the next book which is great.
A very sweet and steamy romance that was just okay in my book. I hope the next installment will be on Tucker or Hamilton!!
At Made for You Book Reviews, Caitlyn shared that she loves a good military hero.
I really loved this book, Sam has been through so much in her short life and I can understand her reluctance to let herself fall in love with Gray.Gray was an awesome Hero as well. I love reading a good military romance and no one does it better than Jen Frederick.
Sleepless Nights Filled with Endless Books said that Gray made her forget about the first two Woodlands heroes. (Psst. It’s Noah and Bo).
I knew going into this book that it would be different from the first two Woodlands books, and boy was I right. Even though the book was different from the other books doesn’t mean it was any less AWESOME! I thought I loved the first two Woodland boys, but then came Gray and I couldn’t even tell you who the first two boys are. Grayson Phillips is a fantasy. He is caring, sweet, adventurous, HAWT, a little damaged, did I say HAWT? and just the most perfect man EVER!
The Readdicts enjoyed Unraveled but it wasn’t their favorite. Still, Sam won them over.
Samantha lost her husband to an IED in Afghanistan. She has been mourning his loss for years and regrets not going after what she wanted. Then she meets Gray and even though Sam is determined not to fall for another military man there’s no denying the attraction between them. I liked Sam. You can feel her grief but her feelings for Gray are true.
Over at Three Girls and a Book Obsession Leary writes that she loves the series and that she loved spending time with all the Woodlands crew.
I want end the day sharing two reviews for Unspoken even though we are here to celebrate the release of Unraveled. It’s great to see that there’s still love out there for Bo and AnnMarie.
At Best Book Boyfriends Riley Lynn writes:
I love their friendship. I love how they learn to trust each other. And when they finally give in to their attraction, damn. Their first time scene is uber steamy. Bo is the stuff all amazing book boyfriends are made of.
She’s going to read Noah next. Oorah!
Megan at ReadingBooksLikeaBoss made this stunning graphic to go along with her amazing review. Click on over to see its full gorgeousness.
I love stories where the couple becomes friends organically and slower develop deeper feelings for each other. This was that kind of story. Even though it was clear that they wanted to rip each other’s clothes off from the beginning, Bo and AM’s actual relationship took awhile to build up. I love feeling that build up, waiting for one of them to make the first move. To move closer. The moment right before they kiss for the first time. This story had all those feelings. And once these two finally realized that they both wanted each other, it was game on. The scenes between AM and Bo were scorching, yet tastefully done.
Thank you ladies!
