I've been called all these at Central College. One drunken night, one act of irresponsible behaviour, and my reputation was ruined. Guys labelled me as easy and girls shied away. To cope, I stayed away from Central social life and away from Central men, so why is it that my new biology lab partner is so irresistible to me?
He's everything I shouldn't want. A former Marine involved in illegal fighting with a quick trigger temper and an easy smile for all the women. His fists aren't the danger to me, though, it's his charm. He's sliding his way into my heart and I'm afraid that he's going to be the one to break me.
Impulsive. Unthinking. Hot tempered.
I allow instinct to rule my behaviour. If it feels good, do it, has been my motto because if I spend too much time thinking, I'll begin to remember exactly where I came from. At Central College, I've got fighting and I've got women and I thought I was satisfied until I met her.
She's everything I didn't realize I wanted and the more time I spend with her, the more I want her. But she's been hurt too much in the past and I don't want to be the one to break her. I know I should walk away, but I just can't.
I loved Undeclared and I especially liked Bo and AM so I've been looking forward to Unspoken for ages!
What I loved:
AM- AM was different from Undeclared, a lot more vulnerable! I think she'd handled her difficult life and background as best she could. I admired how she tried to hold her head high and worked hard at her classes. I loved how she slowly realised she needed to react differently to the harsh rumours. Bo and her made perfect sense- I really liked them together, and reading them getting closer. I found AM's family background interesting, it was clear how her mother's pathetic attachment to a married man had shaped AM's personality and actions. I would have loved more on her father and his other family.
Bo- I loved Bo in Undeclared and I loved him even more in Unspoken. He is the perfect blend of sarcasm, wit, confidence and hidden depth! I liked how he pursued AM and really paid attention to the little details about her. I especially liked how he tried to persuade AM to stand up for herself even if he could have been more tactful! Bo also had a very interesting background, it was good to see how it had affected him as a person and how his family had changed since. I just love Bo as a character!
Side Cast- The Woodlands cast is full of amazingly complex side characters! Finn remains my favourite Woodland boy- I'm even more into him after learning more about this family background and how he got into real estate! I can't wait for his book! Noah and Grace's appearances were really interesting, I liked seeing them from Bo and AM's point of views. Noah and Bo's dedication to each other remained strong despite differing opinions. Lana made a surprisingly big appearance and once again made me want to read more about her! I initially thought Lana would be the lead girl in Bo's story now I'm thinking she'll be the lead in Finn's story. AM's friends brought a new dimension to the cast as they were very outgoing and unique. I especially loved Ellie and her fierce loyalty to AM and her relationship with Ryan.
What I didn't love as much:
More- I would of loved to see AM go home and see her interact with her Mum and Roger. I also wanted even more of Ellie and Ryan!
I absolutely loved Bo and AM and the entire side cast!
I can't wait for the next Woodlands book!
