Unrequited marks a new generation in the Beachwood Bay series. Dex Callahan is using the small coastal town to hide away from his fans and the pressures that come with being a Rock Star. Right away Dex intrigued me, sure he has the smouldering, sexy bad ass persona going on, but it was the secrets he’s hiding that got me hooked. I want to learn why he left his fame and fortune behind.
Alicia was introduced in the last book; she’s a straight laced business woman who never takes risks. She feels the strain of being around all her loved up friends whilst she pines for a man who doesn’t feel the same. When she bumps into a stranger in the alley, Alicia acts out of character and has the most passionate kiss of her life. But reality soon returns and Alicia is horrified, this isn’t who she is and risks are not what she takes. That is, until she discovers exactly who the sexy stranger is.
“He lifts his head. I freeze, staring at him in disbelief. It’s him. The man from the alley. The dark-eyed stranger who kissed me like it was the end of the world, and we were the only two people left on earth. Dex Callahan. Tabloid idol. Rock God. Sexiest man alive. And then his eyes lock on mine, and I know deep in my bones: that kiss is only the beginning.”
This was a good start to Dex and Alicia’s story, I was on the fence when I heard their book would be next, I didn’t know enough about them to want to learn more but after this sexy introduction I need more Dex and his sexy mouth!
“His eyes darken, hot and hungry. “Don’t mistake me for a gentleman darlin’. Just because I stopped when you asked me to, it doesn’t mean I won’t fuck your sweet brains out.”
Alicia is a reserved character, but I believe her strength is underneath just waiting to shine through, as is her wild side. Maybe it’s time she learned to let go and Dex is the man for the job.
As always, I love Melody’s writing. No one can capture chemistry quite like her. Unrequited is such an easy read, their story is set up with just the right amount of teasers that leaves me wanting more.
“I mean it, Alicia.” Dex cradles my cheek in his hand, his dark eyes blazing into mine. “One week. No rules, no limits, just us. I can save you from this unrequited love of yours. And you…You can save me from myself.”
Their full story continues in Uninhibited and I really can’t wait to see what unfolds. One week of uninterrupted pleasure with Dex Callahan? Alicia better say yes!
