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**

Ashlyn Drake is a psychology student currently working toward her Ph.D. The book starts with her receiving an email from her professor stating he has a person of interest for her thesis. She rushes to end her call with her best-friend Liz to call professor Clancy. He then states that he indeed has a lead on a test subject for her amnesia thesis there is just one hitch.

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.

This is the first book I have read by this author.

I have liked the character of Ashlyn. She is strong enough to love a person who, she knows, can not be hers and courageous enough to let her lover go to do the right thing.

I have also liked the character of Logan. Because, he is honest and truly loves Ashlyn as he does not promise her a false future with him without being sure what is veiled in his past.

I have liked the book.
"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 is very interesting book with original and excellent storyline which I highly recommend to all adult romance readers. I was excited about this book since the moment I read the blurb days ago and when I finally read it I was not disappointed. Author succeded in creating intriguing atmospehere with plenty of suspence and while reading this book, I had absolutely no idea how it would all end. And I really love such unexpected stories.

I really like Kendall Ryan so even though this is one of her older books I wanted to read it and I truthfully wasn’t expecting much since the rating was so low but I really liked it.

I found it to be a very different and interesting storyline.

Ashlyn Drake is a Psych student doing research for her thesis which is about amnesia.

The journey that these two characters take together and separately is so fascinating and their chemistry is red hot!

I knew 2 things about this book when I started reading it: One, the cover is really sexy! ( I'm a complete cover slut, not gonna lie! ) Two, I was completely intrigued by the premise. What I found was a story where the H/h have great chemistry, and are scorchingly HOT!!

Secondly, the premise of this book sounded so cool.

Oh, I didn't like that book. It frustrated me actually.

The blurb was so interesting and that is why I chose to read it:
Psychology student Ashlyn Drake finds a perfect subject for her amnesia thesis – a young man without any memory of his previous life, including the murder he’s accused of committing!

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...

Holy Guacamole, I so loved this book!!! It was brilliant!

Unfortunately, I don't have time to give a review that will do it justice.

I actually don't care for Ms. Ryan's books much, other than this series and Hard to Love series, which I also loved.

Check it out guys, ya might like it too!

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. There is just something missing, some parts felt unfinished and left unsaid, especially when it comes to the background of the main charact

I’m continuing to try and catch up on some unread books that have been sitting neglected for a long time. I bought this one 7 years ago and it won the TBR lucky dip this week :)

Ashlyn is a psychology student working on a thesis when she is given the opportunity to meet an amnesia patient that has just been admitted into hospital. The circumstances in which he was found were such that he needs to be handcuffed. However, Ashlyn works out that he is fact harmless and she feels safe around him.

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.)

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

In the words of Ashlyn, I am now officially a "Drooling sex addict."

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!).

Jenny: I liked Ashlyn as a character, but yes she blew hot and cold (hmmm and yes….you did mean that!). She doesn’t do relationships normally.

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!

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

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.

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

He has no recollection of his past, only that he woke up in the warehouse the day he was arrested. From all the warnings that

There was enough mystery and intrigue to keep me reading all the way to the end. Plus the sex scenes in this book had my panties melting.

Something was missing....

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
