Unquenchable by Tawdra Kandle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have a bit of a book hangover after this one. I’m happy that we get a beautifully unexpected HEA but I am so sad that there is no more book left to read!
This book picks up right where the first one left off… then it throws us into rewind-mode. I didn’t even read the description for this book before diving in, so I was a little surprised to find myself in Nell’s head. I mean – it’s Nell! She’s the bad/misunderstood guy. I didn’t think I wanted to be there. Oh, but I did. You learn pretty early on that the Nell we’ve seen from the outside is completely not the Nell in her own head. She’s hurt and a little scared (though she won’t admit that) and she’s now been caught up in the world of the Carruthers Institute (and the group of folks we’ve met along the way). There are some familiar faces and some tied in short stories, but ultimately this book is about Nell and Rafe.
At first thought, I was completely not on board with the Nell/Rafe story. Poor Rafe has had just about everything I can think of thrown at him. He must be just filled to the brim with heartache that I couldn’t even wrap my head around the idea of Rafe doing anything other than healing in this book. Somehow, the wonderful Tawdra Kandle made me believe. A lot of time passes in this book. Because of this, you can completely get sucked into the reluctant and unlikely romance of two very broken people. I LOVED it! Are you worried about this love story? Well, don’t even spend a second worrying about it. You will be rooting for these two every step of the way. From the spunky attitude to the amazing chemistry, I couldn’t get enough of these two.
The world from these books ties in quite a bit, but I’m sure you’d be able to grab on to the Serendipity Duet books as standalone. Hopefully they get you as hooked on the series as I am and you’ll go back to check out the entire original King series books (and short stories). They are worth a read if you are even remotely interested in paranormal romance.
