About the Book:

UNRAVEL YOU is the enthralling sequel to LOVE OVER LATTES and can be read as a standalone. It is also book one in the Cole Brothers series, a new family saga, binge reading experience: 5 brothers, 5 full-length novels in 5 months.

College graduate Valentina never expected to fall for the hot as hell and intimidating Derek Cole when she accepted his offer to rent his property.

From cottage to mansion, Valentina is certain she doesn’t deserve the fairytale unfolding. But Derek gets what he wants… and he wants her.

He’s “the one” for her, but before she says I do, she has to survive a month long trip to his family’s estate in Atlanta. Gaining approval from four brothers and an over-protective mother might just be her hardest test yet.

For billionaire Derek Cole, this homecoming is a chance to mend the damage he caused when he walked away from the family business.

Just when they think they have a handle on their happily ever after… their past and future collide.

Note: This is a steamy romance with explicit sensual scenes, happily ever after, no cheating, and no cliffhanger. Can be read as a standalone.

Unravel You is an enjoyable steamy romance with a side of suspense. Not having ready any other books by this author, including Love Over Lattes (Desert Monsoon Series, Book 1) many references in Unravel You were lost on me. I was able to keep up with the story, however; and found Valentina and Derek a cute couple. Their romance seems a bit fast but when you find the love of your life, you just know. My husband and I have been married for 10 years and we moved in together after only knowing each other for 1 1/2 months. We got engaged a year later and married a year after that. Anyway, back to the story. 

One thing about the way the author wrote this book that stood out to me was the way our hero and heroine were not flawless. Sure, Derek is a billionaire but he has problems just everyone else. He's still fighting with events in his past. Having money does not mean everything in one's life is perfect. Valentina is still fighting the ghosts of her past, too. She caught the eye of the bachelor billionaire but her baggage and mistreatment has her doubting and second-guessing. When both of their pasts collide head-on it becomes time to open up, be honest, and trust one another. 

The chemistry between Valentina and Derek was strong, unwavering, and believable. Their characters are strong and written with realism. I was engaged in the story long before I began reading chapter one, since the synopsis in the book intrigued me. The book flows along perfectly paced, had a wonderful plot, side stories, and secondary characters. I began the book on a Sunday morning and finished it just past lunchtime. I could not put Unravel You down. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in the Cole Brothers Series.

I was provided a copy of this book to review.
