EmeryYou want to know my secrets? What lies beneath the pretty? The scars I can’t let anyone see? The scars tied to my secrets? On the outside I appear normal. Some might even say perfect. They say that I’m a pretty girl. They say I should be happy. They say that I have nothing to be angry about. That I’m popular. A cheerleader. That I’m perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. But all they see is what’s on the outside. On the inside I’m raw, open, bleeding. Scars that can’t seem to heal the wounds. Carrying dark secrets about who I really am.How afraid I am to tell the truth.And it’s slowly killing me. RylerTattoos. Piercing. Scars. The guy who can’t speak. Gothic freak. Mute. Punk. I’ve heard it all. They say that I’m probably dangerous. They say people should stay away from me. They say. They say. They say.But who are they anyway? To decide what I am. They don’t know what’s hidden beneath the scars. Beneath the piercings and tattoos. The secrets I keep hidden beneath the silence.Maybe if they knew, they wouldn’t fear me so much. Then again, maybe they’d fear me more.

Jessica Sorensen is my go to Author always for damaged romance stories with a mix of a dilemma  and fast pace, she hasn’t disappointed me yet!

UnBeautiful is filled with secrets and spins that had me greedily fly through this book and right through book two! Emery is determined to become independent from her parents who think she’s crazy and force her to take pills. Even though living in her own apartment (with a hotty the floor below) her parents still have a control hand on her. Someone is threatening Emery leaving messages behind. Finding a friend in Ryler, things don’t always look how they seem – who is the man downstairs that can’t speak?

What I love about Ms. Sorensen’s writing is the building of her characters. They all have some type of damage – imperfection and it’s a journey going through with them on finding themselves. This book in particular has a mix of cult/mob into the story that kicks up the anticipation and the thrill. There is a bit of sizzle in the romance but it doesn’t take away from the main point. It has a bit of dark element – check out that cover – it was just enough to make it interesting to continue on with Emery. Recommended Read!!

Cliffhanger warning!

  • Sounds very good! I haven’t read anything by Jessica Sorenson yet, but I love the sound of how dark, yet intriguing this one is. I also love that apparently, the romance is not a big focus. Plus, I’m getting my own apartment for the first time soon and I’m super curious to read about Emery’s experience with that :p
