Psychology student Ashlyn Drake’s neat, orderly life takes a turn for the crazy when she finds the perfect subject for her amnesia thesis – a young man without any memory of his previous life, including the murder he’s accused of committing.

Against all common sense, Ashlyn’s drawn to him like a moth to a flame. Perhaps it’s that he’s so incredibly male, and even handcuffe

My oh my! What a delicious treat this book was! **Fans myself**

I hate giving poor reviews, but this book really didn't do it for me. The premise was interesting and I had reasonably high expectations going into the book. However, this book turned out to be a huge disappointment.

(1) The timeline made no sense. NONE! Were weeks going by? Months? I have no clue.
(2) She fast forwarded through the first few weeks (at least I think it was a few weeks) of the main characters' friendship, so it's impossible to see how their feelings developed for one another. We'r

Oh, those three star reviews... I really did like this book, mainly for the somewhat unused idea of a male lead with complete amnesia. And the name Logan tattooed on him. I thought the fact that Ashlyn was a student headed for a PhD and writing her thesis on amnesia sort of fell by the wayside after it was used as an excuse for them to meet. There really wasn't a lot of it in the story.

"He was a mystery to unravel, a puzzle I desperately wanted to solve."

I have to say that I was so excited to have this book come out early (to stare at the sexy cover in my hands) and I took a few hours out of my day to read it.

What a great debut from Kendall Ryan. She brings to the table a different take on an erotic novel. Adding the psychological issue of Dissociated Amnesia to the story doesn't make it a thriller but does bring you to your seat trying to figure out what happened.

Unravel Me was a very unique, very well-written story that I didn't want to end!

I was excited about this book from the first moment I happened upon Kendall Ryan on Twitter, began "stalking" her and found out what her book was going to be different from the usual! Really, nothing gets me more excited than a story with a different spice than any other book I have read has had. A woman meets a man with amnesia that has been charged with murder...sign me up!

This book had a lot of potential, there are some pretty good ideas, but IMO the problem is- they aren't well-written and lacked imagination, but I think that the author has potential to improve considering that this is her first book.

First off I really do love the cover.

However the description made this book sound a lot better than what it was.

The plot sounded intriguing, mysterious and thrilling.
While the book was very hot and steamy the writing and story grew duller, as it went on.

At first I was quite engaged in the story and eager to uncover the truth and find out who this 'Logan' really was, but then it grew predictable and a little boring to say the truth.

I found myself not caring who Logan was because I knew how it

Notably a quicker read than I expected, but not so much a quick review on my part because this book frustrated the heck out of me. I wouldn't say this is an erotic novel, more like a typical NA novel that has some erotic tones, but it's not really even that steamy except in very few places, and mostly they're forced fed to you as the reader. If the heroine didn't mention herself as sexed starved in every other statement she ever made, it was too soon. (Wait for it...yep, too soon.)

The blurb was so interesting and that is why I chose to read it:

That could have been a marvelous book if it had been written well. But no, it sounded as if it was rushed, it lacked depth and it lacked reason and sanity for me...

I hadn’t allowed myself to become attracted to him. I had no say in the matter. It was simple chemistry. A primal attraction that couldn’t be controlled, or turned off simply because I willed it.

Unravel Me is one of those stories that’s not perfect, but you like it anyhow for pure entertainment purposes. It had loads of sizzling chemistry! The main characters were drawn together like magnets, in spite of the inappropriateness of their relationship. Even I could feel the draw and it was HOT!

Joint review with Gitte and Jenny from Totallybooked

Gitte: Ashlyn is researching and writing her final thesis – on associative amnesia disorder. She doesn’t do relationships. They are more hassle than they are worth. Now Ashlyn, she blew kind of hot and cold…(no I don’t mean that!).

I know I'm the only person on the planet who would feel this way, but I had a really hard time with Ashlyn and "Logan's" relationship in the beginning. I guess I just have a really hard time with any relationship where it power is so out if balance. It really made me feel like Ashlyn had to have some really serious issues (which are vaguely hinted at, but never addressed) to not only let it progress, but push for it to progress at every turn. I had no doubt that "Logan" was attracted t

Something a bit different. A cute, easy, sexy read. Ashlyn and Logan's story certainly isn't your average boy-meets-girl fairytale.

I was looking for something painless and uncomplicated, with a bit of steaminess thrown in, after reading a few intensely emotional fade-to-black-sex-scenes, tear-your-heart-to-shreds books... I wanted quick, sexy and straightforward. Now, it wasn't quite straightforward, but it was an easy read and just what I needed. It took me just an afternoon and evening to get

Just having finished this book, I'm still not sure what I want to write so I'll just ramble for a while.

This book started out with an interesting premise - a hot guy with dissociative amnesia who was found at the scene of a murder. He couldn't remember anything and no one knew who he was or where he came from. He is being held in police custody at the hospital because he is the prime suspect for the murder, even though he has no memory of what happened or even what his

Well, this b*tch thinks she can walk into a hospital as a guest and starts ordering people around as if she's the boss of the hospital.

So hear this,- she meets Dr. Andrews, who is a connection of her professor. She, a nobody student, first time meeting the doctor, first time visiting the hospital acts like this.

And it's here that the story begins... Ashlyn is a PhD student and she is working in her thesis, focusing in amnesia. And what better case,than that of a young man accused of murder, that doesn't have any recognition of it?
