If he hates me for what happened 8 years ago, just imagine how he feels now…

Do I feel bad for hooking up with the one who broke my heart?
… No.
Should I feel bad about blackmailing him for a job?
… Probably.

But to be fair, I need the money.

Life’s kind to some people.

Skylar and Devon knew each other when they were young, but they hadn’t seen or talked to each other for 8 years. They may have gotten along once, but they don’t like each other at all now. Skylar and Devon meet each other again when they didn’t expect it. Things got very hot between them, but both of them were shocked afterwards. Skylar and Devon will see each other much more after that night and their hate will become love.

Skylar and Devon are great characters. Devon is a rich, successful, smar

I am voluntarily reviewing a advanced reader copy of this book.

Well what can I say about this book other than its gripping from start to finish. Skylar and Devon hook you from start to finish and I am genuinely hoping that this is not the end of this series.

Skylar is a college dropout working two jobs to pay off her family’s mounting medical bills and debts. Stripping at Starlett is the most lucrative of the jobs but still she can’t get a head on paying off the bills. She spots a an opportunit

ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange of an honest review.

Let me start by saying: the bird was freed from its cage! ❤️ (to know what this means, you have to read the book and pay attention.)

Skye and Devon had such a hot and beautiful story! I have to be honest though... the first 10% of the book was kind of boring (please forgive me for this word Vic), but when I started reading about the club scene, I got hooked. I’m I sucker for club “events”, especially when there is a hot dance inv

Second chance romance story always captivates me. I have a soft spot for it.

Unchaining You is more than fascinating. It definitely delivers the romantic second chance. The story is way lengthier with a very well laid plot. The characters, from protagonists to antagonists, are well suited and developed in terms of their dispositions, acts and dialogues.

I dig for Skylar’s strength and bravery in the ways she faced her challenges and fearlessly grabbing chances to alleviate her situation. More so

I enjoyed this one a lot. Know going in this is a long one, but it is paced relatively well so it doesn't *feel* too long. Also: The main issue with our romantic heroes is in the form of a misunderstanding. Now this is one of my least favorite sources of conflict, but it was handled pretty well here, so it didn't bug me too much. I liked the characterizations a lot, they made sense and were likeable. I'm a stickler for realistic dialogue and I feel like Tyler did a great job there. There was not ...more

Oh wow. I have never heard of this author before and was lucky enough to get this ARC. When i first started I was a bit hesitant as the book was a bit longer than normal. But I have to say I didn't even take note of the lenght of the book.

Skylar is a hot sexy young women who is working two jobs to support her family. Which is hard, especially when one of those jobs is being a stripper.
Skylar knew Devon back in high school when he broke her heart, but she's never forgotten him or his kiss. Now De

I really liked this book from page one. Skylar and Devon were great. This is a second chance enemies to lovers book so that really piqued my interest. I love these types of stories. They were in high school together and a misunderstanding caused them to become said enemies. I loved the push and pull between the characters. It is a hard book to put down. This is the second book that I have read by this author and I can’t wait to read more.

oh .. where to start on this .

This book, this author. I'm in love. Yup. I got sucked into this one and read it in one sitting. She broke my Vic virginity with a banger.


Devon Leo. He's kind of an anti hero. Stubborn, cocksure and with a good dose of arrogance it's fair to say he'll rub you the wrong way a time or two throughout this story.

Skylar Kay. Strong, sweet and at times the devil to herself. She has great character but she definitely doesn't have her shit locked down.

A steamy second chance romance with chemistry.

Steamy hot second chance story beautify written with character chemistry so hot I thought my Kindle would melt. Skylar is hot sexy young women working two jobs to support her family. She’s not reckless or wanton although she works as a stripper at the Starlight. Skylar has had one relationship a high school boyfriend Mike and they are no longer together. Skylar does though fantasize about Devon Leo a high school crush that ended unexpectedly when sh

Unchaining You by Vic Tyler a five-star read that will chain you up. Be warned this read will have your heart racing, the action will suck you in and the second chance romance will make you smile like a loon. I love a second chance, and this was a sublime example. Skye and Devon are hot and beautiful, but they are so much more as well. This was a great story and one you would be sorry to miss.

3.5 stars!

An enemies-to-lovers/second-chance-romance that is intense, dramatic, fun and super sexy. This is a looooong read (579 pages on kindle), but a satisfying one, and I really enjoyed losing myself in Devon and Skylar’s insane chemistry and rollercoaster relationship.

Skylar Kay has had a rough time and is struggling to get by. She’s just lost her day job, and her night job as a stripper isn’t providing enough income to cover her family’s debt and medical bills. A night out is just what sh

This is the first book by this author that I have read and will definitely not be my last. I loved this book. Skylar and Devon knew each other back in high school and he crushed her heart. She’s never forgotten him, and his kiss has been burned into her memory and she has never had anyone kiss like that since. Skylar is struggling, she’s a stripper part time and now may become full time due to recent events. Devon is now a billionaire and in the news with his man whore ways, and she just can’t s ...more

Hot and sophisticated!! That's my take away for a over whelmed gal with great work ethics and a former friend from high school who is still pretty mad at her after eight years. The conflict of misunderstanding is my least favorite plot
scene especially when someone refuses to listen to reason or explanation. I can understand once especially as people are young but I saw him as a "punisher" when he was so cruel after his "misunderstanding". It's not a charming character attribute, although he did

I was given the chance to read this book for an exchange for an honest review. This author is brand new to me do I was excited for the opportunity and gladly accepted. I am always looking for a new author to stalk and I do believe Vic Tyler will be added to the list!

This book is longer than most I have experienced, but it never felt like it was dragging. The author keeps the flow of the story moving along effortlessly. Her focus on details makes you feel as if you are part of the story. From th

As this story gets rolling, two people unknowingly reconnect in an unexpected place- a VIP masked event with a few drinks to loosen their inhibitions. Shocked is a mild word for what they feel when they both realize who's actually behind those masks after the intimate moment they just shared. Hard, angry feelings and major misunderstandings about how things ended between them a lifetime ago, it seems, are still boiling over on both sides for these former friends who wanted to be more.

Unchaining You is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Tyler, I was pleasantly surprised and I absolutely loved it!! This enemies to lovers/second chance romance has great dialogue and the chemistry (especially the sexual chemistry which is off the charts HOT) between Devon and Skylar is unbelievable!!

This book is lengthy but I encourage you to stick with it. Devon and Skylar knew each other in high school and crushed on each other. However due to a misunderstanding, things ended on a bad note. They

Her grandmother is in debt and Skye is paying as much as she can. Devon Leo is partners of Velio Technologies.

Second chance romances are always fun to read about......and the fact that it had an enemies to lovers & forbidden romance added into it to give it a little extra drama - yes please!!

Devon and Skylar were truly so much fun to read about. Even after their initial hookup (sexy as hell!), then trying to go back to hating each other, and then ultimately working together - oh, I enjoyed every minute of them together. Everyone around them could see it, and watching them try to deny their feelings - ye

Devon and Skylar were high school sweet hearts. They meet again as adults but this time Skylar needs a job and gets Devon to give her one but it's not quite what she is expecting. Their story is refreshing and told from both of their view points. You will never be bored with this story and they will keep you guessing to see if Dev and Skylar get a second chance at love.

Their paths cross once again and circumstances has Skylar blackmailing Devon into giving her a job within his company. The comedy is great the drama keeps you captivated. Well worth reading. ...more

This is my first read from this author and I really enjoyed it. I love second chance romance and this was a good read one. Devon and Skyler were perfect for each other. I loved the storyline and the secondary characters. I’m looking forward to Eli’s story.

I was lucky enough to get to read this book through an ARC and am so glad I read it, it was brilliant.
I fell for the characters straight away and really bought into their relationship.
I liked that it was through Devon and Skye’s POV’s as I find them a lot easier to get in to.
Definitely read the extended epilogue too!
Highly recommend!

I really enjoyed this story! I loved how the chemistry built up higher throughout the book. I love reading books with duel POVs because you get both sides of a situation.

A sizzling and hot second chance romance that had me intrigued throughout. Devon and Skylar are so hot together that you can feel the heat. The story was interesting but I also found some parts confusing that I had to reread. It did however keep me wondering what direction these characters were heading and had me turning pages until I found out. A story to read to experience one heck of a physical and emotional attraction.

This is my first Vic Tyler book so I’m new to her writing style and I hope this review does her evident hard work justice.
Unchaining You is definitely a book I’d pick out and chose to read, and recommend to others. It’s packed full of everything a romance reader craves- a great storyline with well developed characters and a lot of steamy panty melting scenes!

Devon is the super hot and sexy famous (infamous) software developer, the boy who went from zero to millions.

Amazing second chance romance! What do you do when you end up in the bathroom with a guy you have dreamed about for 8 years that broke your heart?

It has me flipping the pages waiting to know what was gonna happen next. Definitely a amazing book that will have swooning for Devon. 5/5 stars

Vic Tyler is a new author of contemporary romance novels.

She likes to think she weaves intricate stories about complex characters who come to life, but that's the roundabout way of saying she writes too much and overshoots her estimated word count by 45%.
(See? Concision is very hard for her.)
So if you want a fantastic (and very hot) bang for your buck, you came to the right place.

“We already met. We already kissed, touched, fucked.
But it feels like we’re meeting for the first time all over again.
Properly … Eight years later.
My body temperature goes up just from the sheer force of my blood pumping furiously through my veins.
I want her for the first time all over again”

“She brings out raging, gut–wrenching emotions out of me that I don’t understand. I can’t bear her presence anywhere near me, and sometimes, knowing she’s right outside my office door pisses me off like nothing else.
And on the other hand, every fiber of my being can’t stand not having her in sight. I can’t keep my eyes off her. I have to fight myself to keep from touching her.
She’s never far enough or close enough. I’m both ends of the magnet when it comes to the force that is Skylar.”
