Whiskey Sharp: Unraveled + Pre-Order Details!

“Sexy, pulse-pounding adventure.”—Jaci Burton New York Times bestselling author on The Best Kind of Trouble

The sharpest ache comes from wanting what you think you can’t have…

Maybe Dolan has lived independent, free-spirited and unattached since leaving home at sixteen. Whiskey Sharp, Seattle’s sexy vintage-styled barbershop and whiskey bar, gave her a job—and a reason to put down roots. Cutting hair by day, losing herself drumming in a punk rock band by night, she’s got it good.

But a longtime crush that turns into a hot, edgy night with brooding and bearded Alexsei Petrov makes it a hell of a lot better.

Maybe’s blunt attitude and carnal smile hooked Alexsei from the start. Protecting people is part of his nature and Maybe is meant to be his…even if she doesn’t know it. Yet. He can’t help himself from wanting to protect and care for her.

But Maybe’s fiery independent spirit means pushing back when Alexsei goes too far. Still, he’s not afraid to do a little pushing of his own to get what he wants—her in his life, and his bed, for good. Maybe’s more intoxicating than all the liquor on his shelf…and he’s not afraid to ride the blade’s edge to bind her to him.

Lauren Dane has captured my attention with the first in the Whiskey Sharp series. Unraveled is romance with an undeniably sexy edge and family of unforgettable characters.

Maybe Dolan would be completely estranged from her horrible parents if it weren't for the love they have for her older sister. Maybe believes that it's her burden to bear as long as Rachel can have them in her life. The sisters' relationship with their parents intrigued me almost more than Maybe's relationship with her smooth-talking boss, Alexsei. The Russian import hired Maybe as a barber at Whiskey Sharp and fell in love despite her quirks and colorful personality.

My one complaint about this story is the long, drawn-out suspense about the reason why Maybe's parents dislike her so much. The wait for insight comes nearly to the close of the novel and by that point the shock factor is zilch. I really expected that Maybe had done something extraordinarily heinous or even unthinkable, but the scenario made her parents' reaction seem overly dramatic. However, the story would not be what it is without that contention.

Thankfully, there's a wild bearded Russian to kiss away Maybe's woes and provide her with the confidence her father constantly tries to take from her. Alexsei is a steady character that provides the Dolan sisters with a sense of security through his family and his protective nature. Unraveled is the perfect way to begin the Whiskey Sharp series. I can't wait for Jagged and Torn, which likely follows characters we've already come to adore!
