PS...Pretty glad I didn't read any of the reviews on this book or might not have read it at all. This thought pushes me more and more towards not reading any of the reviews for books I've yet to read....more

I am always a little sad when I learn that the series I'm currently invested isn't led by the same characters in each book. Because a lot of the time I don't have to same warm and fuzzy feelings for each couple. So when I learned that the second book in the Unbound series did not have the same lead characters as the first book I was a bit concerned. I should have known, however, not to be. Vincent knows exactly what she's doing. Kori's and Ian's book is exceptional. I liked it more than I did the first one, which isn't usually the case. I'm not even sure how to describe Kori. She is fierce, independent, and after the unfortunate incidents from the last book, very much broken. She is very protective of her little sister and as the story unfolds we find out how much of her life she has spent protecting Kenley. I think it is amazing how well Ian and Kori fit together. Of course Kori is quite damaged and does not really have any interest in any sort of relationship but you can see from the beginning that Ian is completely smitten with her. I love how interconnected their lives are and that even though they are both lying about things. It is only to protect the other and that when the truth comes out they don't hold a grudge against one another. In these kinds of stories that is not usually the case. I am hoping that, as this is a trilogy, the third book will tie everything together. I'm quite excited to see what Vincent has in store for us in the next book and I can't wait to hear how the characters from this book and book one are incorporated into the finale....more

In this installme**spoiler alert** This is the third book in the ongoing Hush, Hush series about a fallen angel and the girl who can't remember him...
In this installment Nora wakes up in a cemetary with no idea how she came to be there or where she has been for the last few months. The worst part seems to be that while she has been missing her mother has been busy hooking up with Nora's arch nemesis' dad Hank Millar. Not to mention the fact that she knows she had a boyfriend of some kind but neither her mother nor her best-friend Vee will give her the entire truth.
I loved this whole book. Not a dull moment to be found and it all seemed to be leading somewhere important. We find that although Nora may not remember everything she still knows something bad happened. She spends a good chunk of the book trying to figure out who kidnapped her as well as the prior relationship she had with the mysterious Jev.
I think my favorite aspect of the entire book is that even without her memory she is still in love with Patch. I was a little worried that the guy the blurb mentions was going to end up being Scott and that would have really complicated things when Nora got her memory back. But as it turns out it was Patch all along.
I could not believe all of the bullshit that Hank put everyone through. He had to have been a good guy at some point. Or perhaps even the first time Nora's mom and he were together he was using mind tricks on her? Hoping that they would create a child together. I also wonder whether Nora's mother knows that Harrison Grey in not Nora's biological father. This makes the next book that much harder to wait for. I really want to know how Vee and Nora's mother are going to react to this bombshell that Nora has been hiding from them.
I'm not certain how Nora is going to get out of leading the Black Hands Army? I think she is going to find herself trapped in a situation of having to choose between Patch and everything else.
Overall, frickin' awesome book and an awesome series as well. I voted for this in the Goodreads Reader's Choice awards above even City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. I am extremely impatient to find out what will happen next. ...more
