Untamed is book 2 in the Unbeautiful Series following the story of Emery and Ryler.
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.
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.
Emery and Ryler have the kind of story that makes you want to read it over and over again. Untamed is an excellent addition and end to the Unbeautiful Series (a spin-off of Luke & Violet’s story). The way it’s written is in a sense, poetic. These two characters who have spent their lives silenced manage to connect through word in a way that is completely beautiful.
Emery has found out that Ryler works for her father. She no longer trusts him, but she wants to. She’s still drawn to him in a way that she can’t explain and she hates, because now, she views him as the enemy.
Ryler is as indescribably drawn to Emery as she is to him. He can’t stand that she sees him as the enemy, as one of her fathers lackies, but he can’t reveal the truth. That could ruin everything.
Secrets are revealed, mysteries are uncovered and all hell breaks loose in Untamed. You won’t be able to set this novel down as the need for the truth has you turning page after page well after dark. And when you finally reach the end, you’ll find yourself at once content and hollow as these character have managed to enter your life and wrap around your heart… and now you have to let them go.
“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?”
