Audio Review: Unzipped by Lauren Blakely


   photo IMG_2420_zpsytvuvhqa.png

Unzipped was such a fun and sweet friends to lovers story. Even though the two main characters were strangers at the beginning of the book, they became fast friends before any romance stepped in.

Kyler- aka Tom is out to get his college sweetheart back. She was his first love and he feels like he’s ready for a relationship now. He’s more settled. He decides to go with a big gesture. He’ll go to her home, play the boombox, all that good stuff. Problem is… he goes to her neighbors house *face palm*. This neighbor, Finley, gets a kick out of this. She explains to Tom that his ex is never there and decides to help him to come up with a less corny way to win her back since they have time.

This book made me smile and laugh non-stop. It was super cute. I thought the narrators did a great job with this audio. They were high energy and did an amazing job voicing Tom and Finley. I also loved that even though Tom started out wanting his ex back, wanting Finely just came naturally. It never felt like she was second best to me. And Finely had her show/writing going on but using Tom as inspiration was never hidden. I loved how open these two were with one another.

If you’re looking for a light and entertaining romance, check out Unzipped. If you are an audio book listener, I highly recommend it in this format! It was fantastic.

Review: Tragic by Devney Perry

Kaine Reynolds wants nothing more than solitude. After an unthinkable tragedy destroys his family, he’s cut off all ties to his former life so he can battle his grief the only way he knows how.W


So when Piper Campbell knocks on his door, rambling on about being his new neighbor, he slams the door in her face.

But Kaine’s gruff demeanor doesn’t scare her. She’s set on living in Montana and starting over after a terrible divorce. And she wouldn’t mind having a fling to chase away the pain of her husband’s betrayal. Her handsome, albeit rude, neighbor is the perfect candidate.

Yet what neither of them suspect is that their no-strings affair will result in the surprise of Piper’s lifetime—and Kaine’s worst fear.

Devney Perry's Lark Cove series just gets better and better with each book. Tragic is a fantastic read that hit me right in the feels. I loved it.

Piper Campbell is a recently divorced New-Yorker moving to Montana for a fresh start. She loves her job and finds a great place to live that just needs a little work. The only thing wrong with the place... the neighbor. Kaine is grouchy, but  Piper can tell there is so much more to him than that. Kaine has pain. The kind that is deep. Even as these two become 'friends', it's something he never opens up about.

Kaine's story broke my heart. It truly did. I can't imagine going through something like he went through. I loved that he found Piper. Someone he could be himself with. Someone who made him want to try again, want to be more. My favorite part of this story was watching him start to open up and start to heal.
“I don’t want to be reminded of you in pain.”
“And I want you to always remember that you saved me.”

Piper was one of those characters you couldn't help but to love. I adored her. She was understanding, compassionate, and strong. Kaine was a broken man who never knew he could find the right person to put him back together. I love that these two were healing for one another. They were each the missing pieces to each others hearts.

This book had an interesting plot, the writing was wonderful, and it gave me all the feels I need in a book. I love emotional stories, and this was heavy without being too much. It made me cry, but also gave me hope and by the end I had a big smile on my face. Kaine and Piper's book was great. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series!
