all I can say is wow! This author did it again. This book is amazing just like the first one. I am so excited to read the next one I can't wait. Talia Jacobs is a character that I want to be so badly. Her strong character that knows exactly what she needs. And the question of who will be the lover forever. This author has kept me on the edge of my chair throughout the entire two books so far. I think everybody that reads erotica should read this book definitely number 1 pick.!

I finished reading the first book and quickly decided to start reading this one. I’m very glad the author of this book reached out to me for an honest review, otherwise I probably wouldn’t of discovered this new romantic trilogy. Now that I’ve finished the second book I have so many feelings that I can’t even properly describe them. These books are so well written - full of em

I have to begin by saying that when I entered for a copy of this book I had no idea that it was a sequel as it was mentioned nowhere in the giveaway blurb. Had I known, I would not have requested a copy because I had not read the first book. I decided to read it regardless figuring that there would be enough details to follow along. BIG, BIG

Review for Unrequited by Truth Devour
!!!!Spoiler Alert!!!
(Once again I tried not to give too much away and feel that even if I did, it still wouldn’t compare to the experience of reading it all yourself.)
I was very happy to be able to read the second installment of this series. I likewise was not disappointed. In reading these books I have begun to see that the author Devour had a very unique way of looking at this thing we call life. From what motivated people to behavioral patterns and emotion

This book was a 10 out of 10 stars in my book! That being said, I was just a tiny bit confused in the beginning of book two until I quickly read and realized the story was taking place five years after the story in book one ended. I absolutely Talia's ability to read people and see things taken for granted by others had developed even more and how she's grown while keeping true to herself.

I received a free copy of this book from Goodreads First Reads.

I would like to start off by saying that I did not read the first book of the series, so I jumped right into this one without any knowledge of the character or plot.

The main character, Talia, inherited a lot of money when she turned 21 from her parents who died when she was eight. She is spending the money on traveling for a spiritual journey of sorts as well as starting her own non-profit business to help third-world countries obt

This book is a sequel of Wantin. As soon as I finished the first book, I immediately read the second book. I have so many questions that I want to ask Talia in the first book and I'm hoping to find the answers here.

The first chapter is about Talia, who is seeking answers thru a tarot card reader but we all know that she already knew the answers, she just wants to hear it from someone else.

She is in a 5-year relationship with Sebastian but she

Talia is still running full force in life. She comes out of a relationship that seems to have been the longest one in her life. She really has no ill will towards how it ends and I feel bad for her. It seemed like she was finally finding love, but in just a few short pages it slipped through her fingers again. She decides that the world needs more from her than a lover does at this time.

Book #2

This is the sequel to the book Wantin by Truth Devour. I recommend reading Wantin first, since Unrequited won't make much sense otherwise. I immediately started reading book two, as soon as I put down book one. Wantin filled me with questions that I hoped would be answered by reading Unrequited. Wantin was about her troubles in her everyday life, as well as her love life, while this book is more about how she is becoming her own person and is building up her character while she searches f

Author Truth Devour does it again with Unrequited. Staying true to the main character, Talia, as well as the ease in which the author breezes through the story, Devour gives readers more than one could imagine. This novel will have you laughing, crying, and desiring to change the world all while experiencing some hot and naughty sexual escapades. Yes, I am saying it, “This book is indeed a Publish

Unrequited is book two following Wantin by Truth Devour. This is the case of the second book being better than the first.

Sebastian has had an affair and he is not her “true love”. Her “True Love’ is looking for her. Talia breaks up with Sebastian. She leaves to go find herself in India.

I received this book from the Goodreads Giveaways.

I did not care for this book. I entered the giveaway not knowing it was a sequel, but I read it anyway. The tone of the narrator is dull and she seems to know everything. She feels sad, but knows not to cry. She feels rage, but knows not to show it. I'm assuming there's a psychic connection of some kind, but it isn't reiterated in this novel like most authors choose to do with sequels.

I find this book reads like Talia is some sort of ignorant so

I was given Unrequited by Truth Devour in exchange for an honest review.
Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh!! I finished the book and kept trying to turn the page until I realized I finished it! Talia did it once again, she continued to leave a string of broken hearts, save the world, and find a way to live her life the way she wants!
In this book she still doesn't sacrifice her lifestyle to appease a man. She finds she can "read" people with alarming accuracy, and still finds time to play match

Given To Me For An Honest Review

Unrequited (Book 2) by Truth Devour is the second book in the Trilogy. Make sure you have read book 1 so that you have a better read with this one. This book will grab you from page one. It will then hold you down and you will then find those pages turning and turning and turning some more until you are finished with it. Again the way that the author has written this you will feel yourself becoming a part of the story. This book starts about five years after the f

Once I got to the end of Unrequited, even though it left me in a content place, I did not want the journey to stop there for a single moment, so I immediately started Sated. Talia continues on her journey through life going places and doing things that, honestly, most of us don't even dream about and I'm pleased that I have been able to go along as a passenger on this journey. It has been interesting learning of the different cultures, but even more so, the characters have been so well developed ...more

I received this book from the author direct and at her own expense.

Having completed and reviewed book one in the series a few days ago and not completely enjoying it I dived into book two in the hope that I enjoyed it more.
I did.

There are many returning characters and some interesting new ones thrown into the mix. The main character was more likeable than the first book as she found herself and her place in the world. There are some great ideas expressed in her life and the story flowed better t

Unrequited is part of series that you really need to read book one to understand some of the relationships because that is key to the storyline across the three books. Relationships. That being said, my biggest issue with this and why it didn't get a 4 or 5 star for me is because I feel as if there should have been a book in between book one and book two. Seven and half years have passed and even having read the first in the series, I felt like I had accidentally read the books out of order and ...more

I love how Talia continues to go through life by puzzling things and conveying important messages. I find it interesting how she see things and feel things around her; in her environment - her contact with spirits and ghost of the past.

It was also very heart wrenching once more. Someone is born, someone die; the circle of life carries on.

Talia is simple amazing, eccentric, generous, considerate, exhilarating, unique, brilliant, witty, and the list of positive traits goes on.....

So I knew how this one would end, or at least I hoped I knew how this one would end, but it was still a good journey getting there. It did end how I thought it would which was a good thing. I noticed several people on Goodreads giving this book a bad review because they won the book but they did not read the first book in the series. You have to read the first book to understand what is going on. So ignore the reviews that said they did not read the first book! Talia is still on a journey but no ...more

It was a great winning!

When it arrived at home, the first think I thought was: "Wow! This cover is amazing!". I have to say that I really like the graphics.

But, let's speak about what's important! I started this book at the beginning of February and, at first, I didn't really like it. The protagonist, Talia, seems to know everything, sometimes she seems to know perfectly how to act . I admit that it was really irritating.

This was a great sequel to "Wantin". I liked that it brought the title into the story and explained it a bit. It wasn't as sexually driven, and this allowed me to get into the story a bit more. I really enjoyed the more personal growth we got to see from Talia this time around, and the connections she built with people. It really does seem like she has magical powers, but that even she could go through troubles. I was a little annoyed that we never really get to know what happened in the space b ...more

This is book 2 in Talia's life journey as she seeks the true love of her life. She is much more mature person than in the first novel and has turned into a more mystical, soul searching, unselfish individual. Her focus is to improve the lives of those less fortunate than she. She has developed a 6th sense about what people need and is able, due to her enormous wealth and deep understanding of the human condition, to provide it. She has developed into a kind and generous person who never wants th ...more

As a second book, I was hoping for more from Devour, but alas I was left wanting more. The book felt quite off - we got snippets of Talia's life, and we were never given more information that might have fleshed out some of the more interesting concepts like Solution Manifestation.

My issue remains Talia - I find her an unlikeable character, used to being waited on, and the only friends she seems to have are those that she pays for i.e. her employees. Talia is so wrapt up in herself, and her issue

Good book. Very deep in thoughts. Probably not for the person who wants a light, fluffy, romance novel. This book takes you into a deep reflection on what Talia, the main character, feels,thinks and wants. It has an esoteric edge to it, drawing from Indian and Haitian beliefs. Talia is searching for meaning and love in her life but also accepting that she will probably never have more than what she has at that moment and being ok with that. She lives very much in the moment and shares the happin ...more

Look within yourself!!!
This was the second book in one amazing series. Talia'a life will keep you reading until the end of the book. In this storyline Talia is coming to the end of an empty 5 year relationship with a cheating boyfriend. She cant find happiness no matter what she attends I tries, maybe the is external, but within herself. You can't get others to love you if you don't first love yourself.
