Unbound (Colours of Love, #1)
By Kathryn Taylor
Grace is young and has led a sheltered life. She hasn't yet taken much of an interest in men. It's only while doing an internship in London, where she meets the alluring Jonathan Huntington, that our sleeping beauty is awoken from her slumber. Jonathan is rich, incredibly attractive, and stems from British royalty - but he is a far cry from Prince Charming. He lures Grace ever deeper into his world of sinister passion, and she is sucked further and further into the maelstrom of her own growing desires. But when Jonathan demands she do the unthinkable to prove her love for him, she realizes just how dangerous her feelings for him are.
Let me start by saying that is if anyone compares this to Fifty Shades of Gray, they don't know what they are talking about! This is totally different and totally better!
Wow what an interesting book. It sucked me in from the start and I just couldn't put it down. The chemistry between Jonathan and Grace is instant and there is no turning back. I really didn't like Grace at first because I felt that she was the type of person that would be so desperate that she would say or do anything, but that is not the case. She does stick up for herself and really sees reality of the situation between her and Jonathan. It is the others around her that keep pulling her in, his sister his friend, that keep telling her he never acts this way and she is the first. So she stays. I got frustrated with her because she accepts his treatment of her.
Jonathan is very restrained and throughout the book he is very distant with himself and his feelings. We get glimpse of feelings, but nothing solid. The writer really conveys his distance very well. He is hard to figure out.
There is hot sex, but unfortunately you can see that Jonathan has no attachments and doesn't treat her right after. Trust me he treats her right during! Shower inducing. It is only natural that you get emotionally attached to the first person you have sex with, so I think Jonathan is expecting a great deal from her not to. He is strange one minute he seems caring and the next he just ignores her or thrusts her into situations that she is unable to handle. Something terrible happened to him, I am waiting anxiously to see what it is. Someone had to hurt him very badly.
Great read, I will be starting the next book the minute I am done writing this. I am truly addicted!
There are a couple of off translations, but they are few and far between. It doesn't ruin the read or the message conveyed.
Received an ARC from the publisher and NetGalley for an honest review.
