Book Review of Untangle Me by Chelle Bliss

ARC provided by Publisher for honest review.




Synopsis:

Kayden is a bad boy that never played by the rules. Sophia has always been the quintessential good girl, living a life filled with disappointment. Everything changes when their lives become intertwined through a chance encounter online.


Hundreds of miles separate them, but the connection that draws them together is too much to be denied. As the layers of their lives peel back, Kayden keeps the dangerous parts of his past hidden to protect the woman who is becoming more important to him than he should allow. What starts as a pursuit of carnal pleasure turns into a complicated love story. His past is a tangled web filled with addiction, an obsessed ex-girlfriend, and problems with the law. 

One mistake he thought he had left behind may end up ruining it all.


Review:

ARC provided by Publisher for honest review.

I'm sad! I really wanted to like this book. When I read the synopsis I was immediately drawn to the story. However, once I actually started, it fell flat for me. I  think my main issue with this book is that I never  organically connected to the characters. I usually don't mind instalove but it really irked me here because they were so awkward and it was underdeveloped. 

Another thing, the characters are in their thirties but the dialogue and how they act is very juvenile. I kept having to remind myself that they weren't a couple of college kids.

Also, where was this bad boy alpha male I was promised?! His character wasn't consistent. And the sex was alright- nothing mind blowing. Overall, I felt the story was lacking and bland.
