UnWritten Release Day Launch & ARC Review

by Chelsea M. Cameron

What they say: Blair Walton isn't your average curvaceous tattooed children's librarian. She's also one half of bestselling romance author, Scarlet Rose. Along with her BFF Raine, she spends her nights writing books so steamy, she's afraid they would shock her Southern conservative grandmother to death . . . if she knew about them. That's why she and Raine write in secret.

On deadline for their latest book and out of ideas, Raine suggests (demands) that Blair find a guy and "do some research". Declan Bennet has all the qualifications: He's British, looks fabulous in a suit, has glorious blue eyes and gets bonus points for being an amazing single dad to his adorable son, Drake. But what starts out as a research project quickly turns into something much more. And Blair's not the only one with secrets.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: Blair is a librarian, she's also part of a secret romance writing duo with her bestie Raine. When Blair meets attractive young dad, Declan, and his cute son Drake, Raine suggests she does some romance related research.

I really liked Blair. She's witty, cute and funny. Chelsea M. Cameron's writing always makes me smile, which I think is down to her use of banter. I liked how Blair wasn't afraid to be herself but she also had a vulnerable side; she's also rocking some fab tattoos!

Declan made for a great male lead and I loved how cute he was with Drake. As a Brit, I'm always a bit reluctant when reading about a British hero written by a non-Brit. This is generally because we usually end up with a younger version of Hugh Grant or Colin Firth. Thankfully Declan isn't too stuffy and actually reminded me of one of my friends. It did make me laugh whenever he'd say things like 'blokes' or 'w**ker' (yes we defo say that one). I wasn't sure about a certain revelation but I did understand his explanation.

The relationship between Blair and Raine was my favourite part of UnWritten, they were hilarious together. I loved the insight into the mind of a writer and the partnership between Blair and Raine was great. I also enjoyed how sweet Blair was with Drake, who btw gets the award for cutest kid ever!

I would have liked more of an explanation concerning Ada as I was expecting something else to happen. Also the ending was a bit abrupt but I really enjoyed the story and the direction it went in. I really hope we get to see a Raine focused story.

3.5 - 4 Stars in my Sky!
