*I received a copy in exchange for an honest reivew.*
Winter and Finn have an attraction that shouldn’t be acted on. Finn is still reeling from his father’s death and Winter is the younger sister of his ex-girlfriend but one night and an impulsive decision later, both discover what they have been yearning for all this time.
I must admit, I was a bit icked out in the beginning, I was thinking Winter he’s slept with your sister?! Shouldn’t that bother you? But it wasn’t really a factor for Winter or Finn so I managed to let it go. I liked both Winter and Finn as characters. Finn was a gentleman and I loved his chivalrous traits.
I think you will either love Winter or struggle to understand her. Yes her sister, Ivy, was a manipulative character, but taking into consideration all they had been through, I understood why Winter put her sister first and bent to her will. But with that being said, it made the change in Winter’s character more impactful and I may have even said a hallelujah! I also liked the fact Winter was Chinese, although her heritage was just touched upon, it was great to read a romance with some diversity.
I’m a huge fan of this series and I enjoyed Winter and Finn’s story. It was character driven with just the right amount of angst and an abundance of hot, hot hot sex scenes!
It was great to see the other characters pop up that we know and love and it was funny to almost jump back in time as we know so much more of Grace and Noah’s future from other books.
Even though Unrequited is book four in the Woodlands series. I would say it can be read as a standalone but to really enjoy the interaction and history of the supporting characters, I would read in order.
Jen Frederick’s writing is easy to get lost in. Her books provide the perfect escape for a few hours and I would recommend them.
