**I received a complementary copy in return for an honest review**

I have to start off by saying, Unsettled the 1st book in this series made me cry like no other, that was until I read this book. Thanks Alisa for that :)

I love Lizzie and her spunk she is stronger in this book. You can't help but feel for her. She's trying to move on, but the wrong way by not wanting to fall in love again. I get her point of view after what Teagan did to her (ass move btw). That is until she meets Nick.

Oh Nick he'

Wow! I am in love with this series. Alisa Mullen books should be a MUST READ for everyone. The character development was amazing, I was super glad to see Lizzie mature and start to move on, and this book will keep you on your toes for sure. One moment you will be in love, then pissed off, laughing, and crying. Definitely a 5++++++++ book. Keep on writing them books Alisa you have some serious SKILL ♥♥♥

I'm a beta reader. This was such an excellent read; I read it in a day. The character development of Lizzie has really been explored--she's still spunky and unpredictable, but you really feel her inner growth and are rooting for her the whole book. Nick is a great character, I have fun imagining his Southern drawl and tight ass. Can't wait to see how all the drama unfolds with the next book; I already have anxiety about one character who better not ruin it all!

Author Alisa Mullen does not disappoint in her second installment in The Chosen Series, Unchosen!! I loved getting to know Nick as he and Lizzie struggle to define their relationship. The plot twists kept me on pins and needles - I couldn't put the book down - and the ending made me wanting for more!!

This is one of those times in a review, where I am not sure if I want to blubber and cry my eyes out over my computer, Oooooooooor... Throw the damn thing across the room and stomp around while I pout! My mind is all over the place with this one.

Okay, so Lizzie's life continues after Teagan, Post-T. (And bytheway, if Teagan and Nick had some kind of hot-character-book-off, Nick would wipe the floor with your face!) Anyway, Lizzie has turned her life around, becoming everything she would have hop

I was excited for the book from the moment I finished the first book in the series 'Unsettled.' My excitement was short lived in some respects. The excerpt given to the reader for 'Unchosen' in the first book is a far different beginning than what is given to the reader in this book. The teaser actually made it hard for me to understand the characters timeline in this novel. Looking beyond the very confusing/misleading timeline, I loved the character relationships in this book!

Another good read but it just didn't hit the high the first book gave me. I loved Unsettled and couldn't wait to see where the story of Lizzie and Teagan was going to lead. Sadly there was no sign of Teagan and it left a gaping hole for me.

After piecing her life together as best she could, Lizzie meets Nick and become friends, they both want more but don't cross the line till Lizzie does something stupid and realises she wanted Nick all along. It's a decent story and the next book looks a good

I am a beta reader and could not wait to get my hands on this book. It is such a great follow up to Unsettled. I loved seeing how Lizzie has grown and the new path her life is on, only to be turned upside down when she meets beautiful, dreamy Nick. I fell in love with Nick instantly and you will too, especially after he helps Lizzie through the darkest time in her life. I am so excited and anxious for the next book to come out--I cannot wait to see how this all turns out for Lizzie.

Alisa does an amazing job by bringing you even deeper emotionally with Lizzie. We also get to meet Nick in this book. So much happens... don't want t spoil anyone, but by then end you have been put through all emotions again. Lizzie does a lot of growing up in this book. This is another must read but you have to read Unsettled first. Just an amazing job by Alisa Mullen!

the second book in the series. Not as hard hitting in many ways as the first, but still a good read filled with characters you care about. As any good second book does, it made me want to read the third right away.

Do you hear that? That's the sound of my heart breaking and my chest heaving from all the ugly crying... Argh!

Summery - We join currently prego Lizzie O'Mally and her struggle with dealing with a broken heart, Managing a job, and a new baby. Lizzie hasn't had it easy and she's made sacrifices. Without her family I am sure it would be much harder on her.

Rating - 4/5 stars. The first book was amaze-balls. The second one, does not disappoint. Im really hard on the books I read. I either love them or hate them. I certainly don't hate this one.

Wow, in writing Lizzy’s story, Alisa has perfectly capture the what it is like to be a single mother. She has perfectly describes the insecurity, the fears, the devotion to your child, a mothers love & the uncertainty of getting into another relationship & wondering about all the what if’s that come with that.

That aside, this is a beautiful story of a woman who has had her heart broken & a man who was lost until he met Lizzy. As a family the O’Malley’s as close as you could possibly

This book is book two in the chosen series, even though it is part of a series it could be read on its own. At first this book threw me off, because it starts out a the end of book 1 but before the epilogue. This review will have spoilers if you haven't read the previous book.
Compared to book one Lizzie is more mature but still has some issues to work through and in this book she was again deal a crappy hand. Throughout all the problems she is dealing with she has Niall and moves out, she start

Wow okay. So Unchosen, the second in this series, picks up close to where the first book ended. Lizzie has her son and has an amazing job as a financial broker (yeah that I don't buy that so much, but eh whatever). She is eating lunch one day and meets Nick. Beautiful, sweet Nick. Lizzie has told herself she will never fall in love again. After horrible Teagan she just can't do it again. She has her son and her job and her family and that is enough.

Unchosen is book #2 of the series and was even better than the first! I can’t even begin to describe how heartbroken I was for Lizzie after finding out what a shite Teagan was in Unsettled. It took everything within me not to yell at my tablet at 3 am…yes I have lost a lot of sleep reading this series because I can’t seem to put it down!

This one lost a little something for me. I would still rate it a 3.5 Star read but something was missing from book 1 to book 2. I think Lizzy became a little less likeable in this one. I can't quite put my finger on it. May be it was the lack of Teagan that dropped this down a half star for me. Regardless it was still good and I would still recommend it.

Awesome! Alisa Mullen does a wonderful job with Unchosen. Unchosen is book 2 in

the chosen series. It is my opinion that this book cannot be read alone. Without reading

the first book, the reader cannot understand where, why, or how the main female

character got to where she is. Read them both, it is worth it!!

This book also had its emotional moments. The story was really about a young woman growing up. She is healing from a broken heart that was pulled out and trampled on by a lying no go for nothing Irish dude (asshat Teagan). In this story Lizzie meets a new man Nick. Nick is a sexy guy who seems to roam from one girl to another. But in reality you can see that he really cares about Lizzie and Niall. Lizzie has repaired her relationship with her family.
