I love an instant attraction story and that is exactly what Rhys and Hayden's story is. And, although it started as a brief encounter on a plane the fates had other ideas. Unsteady means not firm or solid: not fixed in position and that is exactly the right description for Rhys, when her grandmother died, Rhy ran from her hometown as soon as she became a nurse and never looked back. Traveling from city to city, she calls nowhere home. But when her best friend Tucker needs her, she jumps on a pla ...more

Unsteady is a standalone about love, overcoming grief, and friendship. Rhys meets a man unexpectedly on a plane— a total stranger. Her outer shell is hard to crack— but this man got under her skin. Rhys is finally returning home after experiencing the death of her two grandparents, what she doesn’t expect is to fall in love.

This book was absolutely AMAZING. Ashley Christin is a new-to-me author and I’m now a big fan. Her writing style is gorgeous a

This dang book had me laughing, crying, and swooning. There were many times that I was wiping away my tears, and my heart was just going through all the feels. Loved the meet cute. Loved the reintroduction they experienced. Loved how Rhys was there to help Tucker. Loved how Rhys explained that she was unsteady. Loved the relationship that you could feel between Rhys and her grandparents. Loved how she instantly fit back into her hometown after being gone for so long. Loved witnessing how the rel ...more

I am a big sucker for main characters meeting on planes so when I read this blurb I was excited to read Unsteady. Unsteady is about Rhys, traveling nurse who is still grieving a major loss that has scared her away from love. On her plane back to her hometown she meets Hayden or Dave and they have instant sparks of chemistry. They share secrets before realizing their words are connected through mutual best friend Tucker. Hayden was a breath of fresh air from a hero stand point as he quickly ackno ...more

Unsteady is an instant win for me. This book sucked me in from the very beginning. The prologue is so heartbreaking and kind of sets the tone where Rhys is concerned. Enter present day- Rhys is on her way back to her hometown and her neighbor on the plane have an Uber hot attraction to each other. The encounter on the plane leaves a lasting impression on each of them.

Little does Rhys know that she’ll be face to face with him again, in her hometown. This book is so much more than meets the eye. I

I love Ryse and Hayden so much! My fav part is when she sees Hayden for the first time at the bar and her reaction. Lots of humor and steamy scenes that’ll keep you laughing and engaged. If you want HEA this one is def that.

This book broke my heart and put it back together again multiple times. I cried, I laughed, and I cried from laughing so hard. This meet cute was one of the best I’ve read in a long time and their chemistry was on fire from the beginning.

Oh my goodness this book was nothing that I expected it to be , it was sooooooo much more !

This book was like living life , it was real , it was raw , I cried , I laughed , I had moments where I got angry and frustrated and I took so much from this book especially advice from the older generation especially at the end ❣️

I can’t even pinpoint which character was a main character as they all played a monumental role , this is one of those books that just hit home and you want to dish out copies to

Rhys is a traveling nurse who is wounded by her past. She is coming home to be with her best friend who has just broken up with her cheating boyfriend. Hayden has just broken up with the girl he thought he was going to marry. He is really into Rhys and has amazing chemistry with her but she has so many issues he is afraid she doesn’t want to comment. I really enjoyed the roller coaster ride this book took me on. It was definitely an emotional journey. There were several different stories woven i ...more

Traveling nurse, Rhys, has had some things happen in her past that has hurt her so she's not about to fall in love. She's also managed to stay away from her hometown after losing the most important people to her but she's finally going back to be with her best friend. On the plane back, she starts talking to a random man, and they shared a lot of personal information (probably because they didn't think they would see each other again), but fate has other plans in store for them. It just so happe ...more

With Rhys being a traveling nurse, she was able to go anywhere. Which I personally think would be super cool. Rhys is in her way home to help her BFF, Tucker, deal with a bad breakup. While in the plane, she meets a guy, “Dave,” going through a bad breakup. Once in her home town, Rhys’ demons start coming out, along with an unexpected surprise. This is a slow burn, enjoying with just being with someone you like. Oh, and kissing, lots of kissing. Enjoy!!

Great read

Great read! Loved the random days. Tucker was a hoot and Rhys grew so much through the book with the push from June. Absolutely loved Hayden, book bf material all the way. Loved how this book was reminder of how short life is and that you need to live everyday and if your lucky enough to find that great love, to hold on and make the most of it

Fun easy read but great story and characters! Made me laugh lots and breaks your heart at times. More emphasis on the love story and romance than the spice in my opinion but overall a great read !

The was a good story. Parts of it were great. Some of it was a little wordy and I ended up skimming over some of it.
