Sometimes a book comes out that you just can't put down. Unfortunately, between appointments, chores and that crazy thing called sleep, I had to keep putting this book down. Boy, was I mad. You know how it is, you really get into an amazing book, and then life has to interrupt. That's how good Unyeilding is.

Can't say I'm surprised though, Ravenna Tate is just that great of a writer, so I knew going in that this would be something special. And I'm glad to say I was right.

In Unyielding, Lydia Shel

Unyielding is the first book in the Tortured Love series by Ravenna Tate. It's the unique story of Merrick Dalton and Lynda Shelton and is the beginning of a series of unconventional stories that will not just hold your interest but will make you want to read each book in one sitting. That's just how good these books, and this one in particular, are.

Merrick's beloved wife, Theresa, is gone due to a senseless murder. He's lost, inconsolable, totally unable to comprehend who could have done this h

What can I say about this book, other than I loved it Unyielding is a fantastic start to a new series, with a hero to die for and a heroine, you cannot help but love. The series is called Tortured Love, and I have to say it fits perfectly, because both Lynda and Merrick are indeed tortured. Badly hurt in love in the past neither one of them finds it easy to trust again, let alone love.

I loved the journey the author took us on in this book. We're with Merrick and Lynda every step of the way, as t

New series from Ravenna Tate. A little different type of hero but a hero just the same. Getting to the truth can be hard. Getting over past hurts and drama only adds to it. Ravenna has mixed the perfect potion for this series. I'm waiting for the next one impatiently. ...more

When Lydia agrees to marry Merrick, she thinks it's going to be in name only. She's been burned before and has not plans to fall for another man. Merrick wants to save the company and agrees to marry Lydia. He has also vowed to not fall for a woman again. But things are not always what they seem and they start to fall for each other. When secrets are revealed, will they be able to save their marriage? Or will they even want too?

I love the start of this series by Ravenna Tate. The reader is total
I am surprised at how much I loved this book.

First and foremost, I really hated Rey. He's such an asshole. I mean why would you film you and your girlfriend having sex without her permission? Ugh, I swear, he makes me so mad. I was so glad when Merrick got him arrested. And the thing with Lynda's uncled and father IT JUST MAKES ME WANT TO GO APESHIT, tbh. Her father's a real piece of work. These assholes deserve more than what Merrick did to them.

I also hated that Lynda snooped through Merrick
