Emery No matter how hard I try, I never seem to be able to escape my family’s world. Their madness controls my life, just like insanity consumes my mind. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s real. Sometimes it’s hard to tell who I really am. The person everyone sees? Or the one I keep trapped inside? I wonder which person Ryler sees. Just like I wonder who I can trust. Wonder. Wonder. Wonder. I wonder too much. I wish I could just find a way to escape it all and finally be free.
Ryler I live a double life and sometimes I hate myself for it. Watching Emery fall apart—pretending I don’t care—is killing me inside. I want to tell her the truth, but I also want a new life. Want. Want. Want. I want too much. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what I really desire. I wish I could be free from the confusion, free from this life.
“If you want to dance, dance. There’s no judgment at these things, which makes them pretty awesome.” She smiles, and then threads her fingers through mine. “Okay, let’s dance, then.” I don’t bother mentioning that dancing can be extremely sexy when done under the right circumstances—circumstances that usually include alcohol and sexual tension. At first, Emery is cautious, keeping her distance from me as she rocks her hips to the music. I move with her. I’ve never really been into dancing, but I can rock out to a little garage rock any day. The longer the song goes on, the more into it she gets, until she finally spins around and presses her back against my chest. That’s when the two of us decide to start playing a dangerous game of Want But Can’t Have. A very, very dangerous game that is really fucking tortuous to play yet impossible to give up. Emery starts grinding her hips to the sultry beat of the song. With each movement, her ass brushes against my cock, making me go rock hard. I grip the curves of her hips and my hands unnecessarily slip underneath the bottom of her shirt. My fingers delve into her soft flesh, and I bite back a moan. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve forgotten just how soft her skin is, how amazing she smells, how incredible she feels against me. She shivers from my touch and presses closer, rolling her hips and driving my body absolutely mad. She repeats the movement over and over again, until finally, I damn near lose my mind. Gripping her waist, I spin her around to face me. “I thought you didn’t know how to dance?”

My 5 Star Review

Untamed is the conclusion to Unbeautiful and I am so happy to finally get some answers. When I finished Unbeautiful I was seriously so confused and had no clue where the story was going. Then today while reading Untamed once again I felt like the slow kid in the class rereading lines thinking it would help me solve this mystery.

“What’s going on between us?

A dangerous game that no one can really win.”

Untamed picks up right where things left off in Unbeautiful and we get to see how both Ryler and Emery’s lives are changing with their new roles. While most of my focus while reading was on the mystery portion of the story I did love seeing how things are unfolding between these two.

In order to maintain a completely spoiler free review I will not be going into the plot, instead I will tell you my thoughts.

I had no idea how this story would play out because I had so many theories on what was actually going on. I couldn’t tell if a person was mentally ill, good, bad, or both. I was lost most of the time and this isn’t even really the kind of story that you can guess at, you just have to let the story unfold and enjoy the ride.

I do highly recommend this series as Jessica Sorensen’s has a beautiful way with words and this story is definitely no exception. I loved the poetry shared throughout the story, it really added a whole other element to the story.

I am not even sure how to classify this book, but I will tell you this series made me question everything. I was on the edge of my seat needing more and the budding relationship between Emery and Ryler put a huge smile on my face. Overall, great read!!
