BOOK REVIEW: Unwanted Love by Rachel Smith



✭✭✭✭

ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):

I’m wild. I’m reckless. I’m Kat Willis - the ultimate party girl. My goal in life? To have a good time, a feat I seem to accomplish with ease. I’ve lived a privileged life in picturesque Crystal Lake. On the outside, I have it all. Money, good looks, and any guy I want. Until he came along… Jaxson McAllister. Insanely sexy with a killer smile, I never stood a chance. He saw a part of me I’d kept hidden behind the façade of a good time. I wasn’t prepared for him to turn my world upside down, but when he did, all the broken pieces of my life fell into place. Everything I’d told myself I never wanted, suddenly became exactly what I needed. A home. A family. Love.

MY REVIEW:

Rachel Smith is the author who introduced me to the romantic fiction genre a couple years ago with her debut novel, Home.  You can read my review for that book here and its sequel, Broken Home, here.

Smith's first two novels were part of a series called the "Glenview Series."  I assumed Unwanted Love was the third book in that series, but realized after reading the first few chapters that it is completely unrelated.  I was disappointed at first because I have grown attached to the Glenview characters and can't wait for the rest of their stories to be written.  However, I was able to move on quickly and accept the new heroine, Kat Willis, and the characters in her story.

That said, Rachel Smith has done it again!  Unwanted Love is another story that fans of romantic fiction will fall in love with.  It's a quick and easy read tailored to a slightly younger audience (20-somethings).

Now, Ms. Smith, please get back to the Glenview Series! ;)
