Unplugged by LK Collins
Release Date: November 30, 2016
This book, I seriously am struggling for words for this book. It is hot and dirty with a touch of dominant alpha, and the plot, the freaking plot twist in this book is unreal. It left me reeling, staring at my kindle with a gaping mouth.
The story begins with a whole group of friends unplugging for the week of vacation. While readers get to see several of the friends, the main focus is on Quinn and Merritt. Quinn is recovering from a horrendous breakup and has built huge stone walls around her heart, but this doesn’t deter the Merritt. His advances mixed with his sweetness and obvious sexual prowess tears done all the walls she has created. There are times that Quinn seemed a little too pliable for me as a heroine, but it was never to the point of making me dislike her as a character, and there are times that I cheered for her strength. These moments of strength when she seemed to need it most make her a likable character. Merritt is smart and exudes power and dominance, seeming to command attention in and out of the bedroom. He is certainly a fun hero to read about, and his pursuit and treatment of Quinn makes him completely endearing.
These characters from the very beginning have instantaneous sexual attraction. It permeates throughout the room whenever they are together. And once they give into their desires, all bets are off. There is not a place, a position, a kink they aren’t willing to try, repeatedly. There are times when I wish there would have been a little more emotional or personal connection between the two of them to help develop them as characters, but sometimes a good smutty novel is just the ticket, and at the end of the day it didn’t detract from the overall story line.
Here is where things get tricky. The plot of this book blew my mind. The twist! I never saw it coming. Looking back, I should have. Comments and behaviors completely foreshadowed the plot bomb she planted, but I just didn’t see her taking the reader down this path. And what a path it was! Once she drops the first bomb, they just kept right on coming! And once I got to this point in the story, choices she made in the development of her story (characterization, seemingly vague references to the boyfriend and other previous events) make sense when before it didn’t. It really is a fantastic utilization of foreshadowing to mislead the reader. Even with the epic plot twist, L.K. Collins brings it all back together and will leave the reader 100% satisfied with the resolution of this story.
Unplugged is fun, sooo very dirty, which is sometimes exactly what I’m looking for, and kept me on the edge of my seat. With this book, L.K. Collins has earned herself a new fan!
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
From the moment I laid eyes on her, I was doomed.
Quinn Whitmore was unlike any other woman in the world.
She was it for me. That spark, that instant connection, became my sole purpose for breathing.
Her laugh would take over a room.
Her smile brought me to my knees.
And her body was…pure perfection.
When I met Quinn, she was fresh off a nasty breakup and had ruled out all men. She wanted to spend the week in the Rocky Mountains unplugged from the world, unwinding and focusing on herself.
So I decided to let it go.
But my mind wouldn’t.
Every thought suddenly became consumed with Quinn, and I knew I had to have her. So when she finally agreed to a week of just sex, no strings attached, I took the deal and ran. It would give me time to fuck my Quinn obsession out of my head.
But, man, was I wrong. A week wasn’t enough. A lifetime wouldn’t be enough.
The problem…Quinn was hiding a secret—a secret that would ruin my life. And ruin it she did.
