You want to know my secrets? What lies beneath the pretty? The scars I can’t let anyone see? The scars tied to my secrets? On the outside I appear normal. Some might even say perfect. They say that I’m a pretty girl. They say I should be happy. They say that I have nothing to be angry about. That I’m popular. A cheerleader. That I’m perfect.
Perfect. Perfect. Perfect.
But all they see is what’s on the outside. On the inside I’m raw, open, bleeding. Scars that can’t seem to heal the wounds. Carrying dark secrets about who I really am. How afraid I am to tell the truth.
And it’s slowly killing me.
Tattoos. Piercing. Scars. The guy who can’t speak. Gothic freak. Mute. Punk. I’ve heard it all. They say that I’m probably dangerous. They say people should stay away from me.
They say. They say. They say.
But who are they anyway? To decide what I am. They don’t know what’s hidden beneath the scars. Beneath the piercings and tattoos. The secrets I keep hidden beneath the silence. Maybe if they knew, they wouldn’t fear me so much.
Then again, maybe they’d fear me more.
5 holy sh*t stars Wow. WTF was that? It was awesome, that’s what it was. I went into this totally blind and let me tell you, it was bizarre and I loved it. I couldn’t put this story down because I was dying to know what was going on. There was something towards the end that I never saw coming, but once it was revealed I was all “A-HA!”
Go ahead and read the synopsis, it won’t give anything away. As you can see there are some serious secrets that both Emery and Ryler keep, but this installment only started to chip away at what those secrets might be. I don’t think the sh*t has even hit the fan yet. It’s going to be crazy and I’m going to be biting my nails. I had a knot in my stomach almost the entire time I was reading this story, but don’t get me wrong, I loved it. At one point Emery said she might get sick, and I swear I was thinking the same thing. There’s SO MUCH MOTHER LOVING DANGER in this book…and it’s crack!
Let’s talk MCs. They are both gorgeous, insanely gorgeous. On the outside they look like opposites, with Emery being perfect, like a doll. Ryler is gorgeous in that bad boy way that speaks to all women. But that’s on the outside. It was the look in their eyes, the way they moved, the way they carried themselves that ultimately sparked the attraction. Then these two found out they had a bit in common, even if what they told each other was still vague. I wanted to know more and I was almost pushing my kindle to get them to spill secrets, but sadly I will have to wait.
So even though there’s danger and total insanity going on there was still time for a romance. It only just started but the attraction was undeniable and frankly, I wish these two could catch a break so we could get a serious kissy session. If what we had is a preview…well, let’s just say it will be divine and intense and totally hot. (It’s almost killing me to write this review and NOT start book 2).
The ending…let’s just say I started to get some answers but then I actually had even more questions. Book 2 is a must.
What didn’t I like? Nothing. I loved every single page and word of this. I kid you not.
Rec this? Hell yes! If you love an intense story with plenty of suspsne and a romance to boot, Unbeautiful is a must for your TBR.
