Untamed By Jessica Sorensen ~ FMR REVIEW

Congrats to Jessica Sorensen on the release of  her new book UNTAMED! This is book 2 in the Unbeautiful Series following the story of Emery and Ryler. Make sure to enter the giveaway below for a chance to win an ebook copy of this book. Good luck!
Emery No matter how hard I try, I never seem to be able to escape my family’s world. Their madness controls my life, just like insanity consumes my mind. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s real. Sometimes it’s hard to tell who I really am. The person everyone sees? Or the one I keep trapped inside? I wonder which person Ryler sees. Just like I wonder who I can trust. Wonder. Wonder. Wonder. I wonder too much. I wish I could just find a way to escape it all and finally be free.
Ryler I live a double life and sometimes I hate myself for it. Watching Emery fall apart—pretending I don’t care—is killing me inside. I want to tell her the truth, but I also want a new life. Want. Want. Want. I want too much. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what I really desire. I wish I could be free from the confusion, free from this life.
“If you want to dance, dance. There’s no judgment at these things, which makes them pretty awesome.” She smiles, and then threads her fingers through mine. “Okay, let’s dance, then.” I don’t bother mentioning that dancing can be extremely sexy when done under the right circumstances—circumstances that usually include alcohol and sexual tension. At first, Emery is cautious, keeping her distance from me as she rocks her hips to the music. I move with her. I’ve never really been into dancing, but I can rock out to a little garage rock any day. The longer the song goes on, the more into it she gets, until she finally spins around and presses her back against my chest. That’s when the two of us decide to start playing a dangerous game of Want But Can’t Have. A very, very dangerous game that is really fucking tortuous to play yet impossible to give up. Emery starts grinding her hips to the sultry beat of the song. With each movement, her ass brushes against my cock, making me go rock hard. I grip the curves of her hips and my hands unnecessarily slip underneath the bottom of her shirt. My fingers delve into her soft flesh, and I bite back a moan. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve forgotten just how soft her skin is, how amazing she smells, how incredible she feels against me. She shivers from my touch and presses closer, rolling her hips and driving my body absolutely mad. She repeats the movement over and over again, until finally, I damn near lose my mind. Gripping her waist, I spin her around to face me. “I thought you didn’t know how to dance?”

~ Review by Fidah ~
Jessica Sorensen writes some of the most beautiful, gripping and raw new adult novels. However, Untamed was a surprise for me because I was fairly disappointed with the previous book – Unbeautiful. Nothing much seemed to happen in the first book but the plot really starts to pick up in this book, especially with the way Unbeautiful left us. I highly recommend for anyone interested in this series to pick up the two books and read it as if it was one book. I think the two novels together really creates an intense story.

The interesting and unique part of the book that really makes the story comes to life are our two main characters. They’ve been through some awful and bad situations. Some of them are just insane. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read what happened in their past. I felt sad and hurt for the things they went through but so unbelievably proud for pushing it on till the end. Throughout the story, you’re constantly battling with insanity and trust along with our characters that it even makes me think twice at times.

At the end of the day, you’re wondering how are things going to be resolved? What is going to happen to these characters? Are they safe? If it feels like they are in safe hands, how long can you trust in them before everything changes again? What happens then? The writing is engaging and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I wouldn’t expect anything less from this amazing author.
