Sensual. Romantic. Kathryn Taylor.

Like a fairy-tale, it should have been so wonderful: after a year of marriage, Grace Huntington still experiences undreamt-of passionate bliss. But stubborn doubts keep eating away at her. Despite the many happy moments when she feels close to Jonathan, sometimes he seems just as inscrutable as he did at the start. And now she has somethin

3 okay but not understanding the need for a novella. Honestly, I loved this series so for but why would you write this novella when you could just have this part in the beginning of the next book? I guess authors do a lot of things readers won't understand but this made me shake my head.

The writing is still good, Jonathan is still one incredible man, and the story is still moving, so I can't complain too much. When the novella opens the reader learns a bit has changed since the second book ende

Ok I thought we would get the answer to the Yuuto question....nope. I still think something should tie in there. I really didn't see the point to this very short story. Jonathan is moody and then turns into Prince Charming. Grace is worried and insecure. Again something is missing no depth.

Unleashed was a short quick read. It starts off a year into Grace and Jonathans marriage. Yeah that's right they've been married for a year. Grace finds out about something that she thinks Jon will not like and keeps it a secret, mean while she's noticing that Jon has become distant and is keeping secrets of his own.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance, Women’s fiction

I loved the first two books in this series but....I was disappointed in this one. Not from the content – that was excellent – but the length... I should have guessed by the price but I didn’t notice that it was different.   Where the first books were 230+ pages/ 3500 kindle locations  this one is just 630 kindle locations, maybe 50-55 pages and over very quickly. I don’t really know

This was a great quick read. The one thing I was disappointed about was it took place a year after their wedding. I was hoping to see all the planning that went into Grace and Jonathan's wedding as well as Sarah and Alexander's wedding. I would consider this a must read if you have read the first two books in the series, it was a great way to wrap up the romance between Grace and Jonathan. Some changes have been made in their lives and you get a peek at it all, the ups, the downs, and the insecu ...more

Unleashed is the third book in the Colours of Love series and is more of a novella type book. We get a look of how the first year is in the life of Jonathan and Grace and how their marriage is. There are ups and there are some downs. When Grace hears Johnathan admitting to something, she starts to panic and has a secret she has recently been holding to , waiting for the right time to tell. Now she is afraid to admit to. What will happen when she tells Jonathan her secret? Will this be the end to ...more

Where the first two books are novels this book is a novella. Jonathan and Grace had finally worked out all their hang ups and love had blossomed but in this novella Grace has a secret that could destroy their future. Although I loved the first two novels I felt that this novella would have worked better for me if it had continued where Uncovered ended instead of jumping so far into the future. It just felt like half of the book was missing. That aside I did enjoy the story in its own right. The ...more
This novella follows up with Grace and Jonathan a year after they are married and follows Grace while she uncovers some disturbing news about their future.

Loved this Novella! Jonathan, or should I say Grace, finally puts Yuuto in his place and I love it! Sadly, I don't know that this will be the last of him.

There's nothing bad about this quick catch up with Grace and Jonathan.

This was a short novella to wrap up the first two books and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the completion of the story. This novella answered some of the really important questions that the reader still had after completing the first two books in the series. I loved how the author took the time to understand that she left a few big details hanging and wanted to give her readers the closure.

Definite 3 stars.

Netgalley for an honest review.

This story was very short. It begins one year into Jonathan and Grace's marriage. Grace has some concern about Jonathan and how he's acting somewhat closed off. Grace also finds out she pregnant and isn't sure how to impart the news to Jonathan.

This was too quick to really become engaging.

Right, first of this book wasn’t a full novel which I didn’t realize until I was about half way through the book. I would have loved to read a whole book because now it just felt like an epilogue that wasn’t included in the second book. However, it was nice read and enjoyed finding out about Jonathan and Grace’s happy ending.

Definitely a novella

This book took me maybe 30 min to read. It was quick and to the point. The book had the essence of a novella and not a novel. I was disappointed that this series wasn't more in depth.

Ridiculously short!

It's only about a chapter long; you'd think that a little more effort could have been put into extending the storyline somewhat. Disappointing!

Oh My!!!! Their going to have a baby! Grace doesn’t know rather to be happy, sad or completely scared. Jonathon had said before that he doesn’t want any kids. Has that changed? Will he leave Grace if she doesn’t give up the baby?

While she’s trying to decide how and when to tell him about the baby, she finds out that Yuuto is in his office. Instead of waiting for Jonathon to tell her what’s going on, she rushes up to his office and hears Jonathon saying it was a huge mistake, and he’s going to fi

I received an ARC for this book and read it on Nov. 20, 2015. Here is my review.

I liked this book by Kathryn Taylor, it is the third book in this story and takes place a year after they have been married. I know we all have been waiting to see where their story goes!

Grace is very happy but something comes up that leaves her worried for her marriage and her love for her husband may be in danger! Can she be honest and brave enough to tell him before it is to late? Life without hi would be no life

Grace and Jonathan have now been happily married for a year. Recently, however, he's been seeming to pull away from Grace and appears to be hiding something. It doesn't help that Grace has just discovered that she's pregnant. She hasn't forgotten that Jonathan once told her that he never wants children. She soon discovers that Yuuto Nagako is back, and likely wants to m

An uneasy feeling is creeping up on me, because when I think it over I realise that lately he’s told me very little about what’s happening at the company lately.

Unleashed starts in the future from where Unbound left off. Grace and Jonathan are married, Grace is working in another level of the company and we discover a secret that Grace is afraid to share with Jona

After what happened in book two, I was rather keen to see what would come next and it didn't disappoint.

It's a year later and Jonathan and Grace have come a long way. The have been living in bliss but now there appears to be a change in Jonathan's behaviour, enough for Grace to start feeling insecure about their relationship. Has he gone back to his old ways? She knows him well enough to know that he is hiding something, but he won't come clean.

I was really looking forward to reading the last chapter in Grace's and Jonathan's turbulent romance, was I was rather disappointed. I think for me there were too many twists and turns for such a quick read. It felt like Kathryn Taylor had all these great plot ideas and was not allowed to unleash them into a full blown romance novel.

The first two books were brilliant, believable and well written and I was expecting the same from this was. This book begins two years after the Jonathan proposed to

Unleashed is the third part in the Colors of Love series and is a novella. This one picks up a year after Grace and Jonathan are married. Things have been going good for them, but some unexpected news could threaten to change all of that. Also, an enemy from the past also threatens to ruin things for Grace and Jonathan. Will they be able to accept things and move forward together?

Okay, so I’m very confused because I was led to believe that the third book to the Colours of Love series was an actual book. In fact, it is really a short story that I finished within 30 minutes. That’s not to say that I was disappointed with what occurred in the story, but it just wasn’t enough. Basically Grace and Jonathan are happily married, but about a year into the marriage both are keeping a secret from the other. Grace’s secret is obvious, but regardless she begins to jump to conclusion ...more

This is a novella, very short. If this is $5.99 you can happily end it at book 2. In this book we are 1 year into the marriage and Jonathon starts becoming withdrawn again at the same time Grace becomes pregnant and she's afraid to tell him. I'm not sure this story was even worth writing, it could have been done in an epilogue of book 2 and just had less drama. Perhaps there are more books coming. I was left with unresolved issues but nothing that is going to drive me crazy, just annoying more t ...more

The absolute only reason I gave this a book. 4 stars is because of the length of the book. Honestly, when I sat down and started reading, I was fully expecting to get completely enthralled in another book with Grace and Jonathan's story, especially after book 2 ended. Although it did have quite a bit to get sucked into, I wanted more, I wanted to hear about their wedding, honeymoon, what happened when Jon got Grace back to London, and so much more. But what there was there was really hot! Loved ...more

I enjoyed this novella, but I do not see why it was a separate book. I feel like this would have been a beautiful addition to the end of the second book. The story takes place a year after they got married and each one has a secret they don't want to share. Both secrets relate back to a concern from a previous book. Quickly both secrets come out in the open and they address them. Again, the writing style is lovely and the characters are so fun and I enjoyed seeing them again. I would love to see ...more
