Review ~ Undone by Shannon Richard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I always thought it would be cool to live in a small town, everyone knowing each other, a big family feeling, and the sense of community. But the way small towns were portrayed in this story made me never, ever, want to live in one. Some of the people were just “mean girls” type and the way they turned away outsiders was just a huge turn off. I’m sure some towns have people like that, and it can be an exception, but I hope I never find a place like that.
So, when I first started reading Paige’s attitude, I was a bit turned off, until I got a grasp of why. She does have ample reason to be the way she is, considering the way the “mean girls” treat her.
Brendan, our Hero, becomes her saving grace in many ways and I actually like him a lot. He was sweet, gentlemanly, and hot.
This is a great little love story, and being the first in a series of companion books, I’d actually like to continue to see what happens to the rest of the gang.
Things Paige Morrison will never understand about Mirabelle, Florida:
Why wearing red shoes makes a girl a harlot
Why a shop would ever sell something called “buck urine”
Why everywhere she goes, she runs into sexy-and infuriating-Brendan King
After losing her job, her apartment, and her boyfriend, Paige has no choice but to leave Philadelphia and move in with her retired parents. For an artsy outsider like Paige, finding her place in the tightly knit town isn’t easy-until she meets Brendan, the hot mechanic who’s interested in much more than Paige’s car. In no time at all, Brendan helps Paige find a new job, new friends, and a happiness she wasn’t sure she’d ever feel again. With Brendan by her side, Paige finally feels like she can call Mirabelle home. But when a new bombshell drops, will the couple survive, or will their love come undone?
