4-4.5 stars!!


Note: This is a pretty intricate series so I’ve explained the reading order at the bottom of this review.

Melody Grace is one of those authors who I can always count on delivering the goods. While her Beachwood Bay series is formulaic to an extent and embodies many NA clichés, I don’t give a rat’s ass about it because IT.WORKS. They’re scorching hot and make me fall in love with the idea of love. They never fail to put a grin on my face. T

Congratulations to myself! (What? Of course I can do that right?)

Here's the worst DNF of my life. 4%. 4 fucking %.

I thought I was strong, but I can't deal with it. I can't. Not now anyway.

Maybe, I mean maybe one day, when I'll be able to stand a guy who decides that a girl is his HOPE and his SALVATION (what with this word anyway?) 30 seconds after meeting her (and I'm feeling generous here) maybe, that fucking day...

Who am I kidding? It will never happen.

This book starts off right where we left off in Unrequited. After their fast and sharp burst of passion, Dex and Alicia are left staggered by what they believed to be one night of comfort. Now they're feeling anything but comfortable just walking away from each other.

Alicia is used to order and simplicity in her life. S

Uninhibited is another hit from Melody Grace, I loved this! I’ve said this before, I‘m a BIG fan of Melody and the Beachwood Bay series. Uninhibited is the beginning of a new direction for the Beachwood Bay series. This part of the series called The Callahan’s will focus on The Callahan siblings, past favorites from the Beachwood Bay series will still be in this new part of the series.

We first meet Alicia Wright in Unafraid. Alicia is all about doing what she thinks is the right and safe thing t

I loved this book! Dex is a sexy, bad-boy, rocker with a dirty mouth. Alicia is in love with her best guy friend who is getting married. Alicia and Dex agree to spend a week together for her to get over her crush. This book was incredibly HOT! I loved Dex and Alicia together and did not want this book to end. Dex is so hot! I loved him! This is the first book I have read by Melody Grace and I just absolutely loved her writing - I can't wait to read more. Fantastic!

It's not a DNF. It's nothing against the book or the author. It's just that I can't seem to get into this book right now. Sometimes the timing sucks. I don't want to read it and hate it because I wasn't in the right frame of mind while reading it. So it's best to put this aside for now.

It doesn't mean I won't revisit this book in the future because I'll definitely will. :)

This book should come with a warning about needing a fan and some ice cubes while reading!!! This book was smoking' HOT ;) This series just keeps getting better and better with every book that Melody Grace releases. Her writing, to me is flawless. Her stories always suck me in and keep me interested all the way through. She creates such great characters that you never want

Maybe a little bad is just what you need...
Uninhibited is the 2nd book in the Callahan Series, a continuation of Dex & Alicia's story. Alicia is the 'good girl' who does what is expected of her, planning out every move in advance. Well, that was until she meets the bad boy, spontaneous, dirty-talking rock star. He makes her want to break the rules instead of follow them. When he asks, "When was the last time you did something crazy?", she hadn't started yet. But the explosive chemistry between t

VERY HOT AND A GREAT TUGGING AT THE HEART STORY. Uninhibited - is a great read i fell in love with the story of Dex and Alicia. I am going to try to give you my thoughts and feelings of the story without giving any spoilers away. Lets start with Alicia- She is a very Sophisticated but yet sheltered woman with a slight wanna be wild side wanting out of her and she own her own successful business and isn't even 30 yet, she is a planner who has to have everything written down in her date book and e ...more

Melody Grace has done it again!!! This is my favorite book in the Beachwood Bay series so far!

Uninhibited follows the story of Alicia and Dex. Alicia has spent her entire life planning and playing it safe. She's spent years of her life pinning after one of her closest friends....the problem with that, is that the man of her dreams is marrying someone else. She's destroyed and doesn't know how she will ever move on. That is until one night. She meets Dex and he turns her entire world upside down,

I just finished this book and it is haunting me. You know... when you are so into a story and after you finish it you just don't know what to do with yourself? I went ahead and bought the rest of the Beachwood Bay series just so that I can catch up and read about all these characters our author Melody Grace has created. All I can say is what a trip!

At the end of Unrequited, Dex makes Alicia an offer. In this new book, Alicia must decide whether to continue living her life full of regrets and unf

The most important thing you need to know about Dex is that you don't interrupt him when he's getting sweet with his woman, "dammit!" I curse, whirling around to face our interruption. It's a busboy from the restaurant, some kid looking mortified in the doorway. "What do you want?" I demand, breathing heavy." I loved how much Alicia affected Dex, "Dex gives me a dark look. "Some good it's doing me now." He takes another breath, and then adjusts his jeans. "Damn woman, you're killing me right now ...more

I got this as an ARC e-book through NetGalley & the publisher.

I absolutely loved this book! The pacing was spot-on throughout the book, with just enough ‘down time’ in between the in-text chemistry of Alicia & Dex for me to catch my breath. Although the book followed a somewhat formulaic set of events, it was done incredibly well & had me thinking I was watching a movie rather than reading a book. I could not put it down!

The chemistry of Alicia & Dex leapt off the page & definitely had me hooked

I was lucky to get an ARC of this book and was not disappointed!!! Dex is totally swoon worthy!!! Is there anything better than a bad boy? I think not!!! I loved all the Beachwood Bay books and cannot wait to meet the rest of the Callahan Clan. As soon as you can get Dex in your hot little hands grab him!! You will be glad you did. Cannot wait for Teagan and Ray Jay!!!

While I was still reading this, I'm debating if this is a four-star or five-star rating. What's stopping me from giving it a perfect score was there is too much, way too much sex scenes. I know sex sells but some were irrelevant to the story that I skipped reading them and still not miss out on anything. All that said, I enjoyed reading it. I was dreaming about the story and it felt like I was still reading after I finished the book in one night, before I went to bed.

After reading the prequel novella to this book, Unrequited, I was desperate to read more of Dex and Alicia. I loved their passion and that exciting anticipation both of them had when they were together. The novella ends with Dex making an alluring proposition- one that is sure to rock Alicia's world, should she agree.

Pacing: I don't read Melody's books. I devour them. It's easy to lose myself in her words for hours and then realize that the outside world actually still does exist. I am so excit

So it is official, Dex and Alicia are my new favorite Beachwood Bay couple! Alicia is a good girl, she makes good life choices, she plays by the rules, she is innocent, naive, and desperately trying to find herself. Dex is train wreck two seconds away from impact, he is a whirlwind of emotions, sexual energy, and hidden pain; however, would your really expect anything else from a rock star? Melody aced these characters, they are the perfect contrast and the out come is tantalizing.

The story's okay. It was kind of flat to me and it ain't that exciting. There were some hot scenes though.

When I saw the ratings, I was excited but when I started to read this.. I just knew that this novel ain't for me. It wasn't able to satisfy me.

I was expecting more drama but it wasn't enough. The writing style is okay. I kind of just breezed through the novel.

Alicia lives life by the rules. She has a successful career, friends, a family that loves her and she has been in love with her perfect guy for 3 plus years. The problem is that her perfect guy, Hunter, is one of her best friends and has no clue... oh and he's about to get married to another woman. Alicia, being who she is, actually likes the fiance and rather than finally confessing her feelings to Hunter, she struggles to try to forget him and move on.

I received this ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The gist: Alicia has been in love with her best friend since college. The problem is, he's happily engaged to the love of HIS life. Dex is a rockstar who craves the spotlight like a drug but he's in a self-imposed exile from the spotlight. They meet in a chance encounter and he promises if she spends one week with him, he'll make her forget the man she's pining over.

Alicia is a bit of a control freak. She's the type of person w

Review by Allison East

I will always be a huge fan of Melody Grace, I love her Beachwood Bay series, and this one about the Callahans is uber steamy and sexy. I read the prequel Unrequited and wanted more of Alicia and Dex, and the good thing about Melody is, that she delivered and I didn't have to wait too long!

Uninhibited takes place a few months after the prequel Unrequited ends. Alicia hasn't taken Dex up on his offer of a week of hot sex. Her life is boring, and she starts to become o

It's been some time since I have read a Melody Grace book - I read Unbroken when it first came out and have been so caught up in the many books releasing that I haven't had the opportunity to return to the Beachwood Bay series though after reading Unrequited and Uninhibited - I have to get back and read the books in between ASAP because holy hell these books were so good and HOT!

“Some things, you can’t plan for. Some people, you know before you even meet. Some loves are forever.”

Dex and Alicia’s story actually starts in Unrequited. In Unrequited you get to see how Dex and Alicia meet. There isn’t much backstory to them yet but the book hooks you enough to make you want more, and leaves you wondering if Alicia takes Dex up on his offer……..

Let me start by saying this... Melody Grace is one of few authors that makes out of reading a pleasant and realistic experience. Her writing style is like a walk on the park: relaxed, easy to follow, always leave you with a smile on your face. Her stories are believable, interesting and you get caught up from the get go. Her characters are easy to relate with since they have real life careers, situations and problems.

Now, let me tell you what I love about this book...

I fell for Beachwood Bay with Emerson and Juliet and have loved all the books so far. This is an offshoot to the series and I think this a fab new addition to the family!

Alicia is the consummate professional, good girl, over thinker and pining over unrequited love, falls literally into the arms of Dex, rocker, bad boy struggling with demons and himself over an event that has caused him his recent exile from the music he desperately loves.
