Meet Finn & Winter in the newest addition to the Woodlands Series!  
Special Price of Only $2.99

Winter Donovan loves two things: her sister and her sister's ex boyfriend. She's spent her whole life doing the right thing except that one time, that night when Finn O'Malley looked hollowed out by his father's death. Then she did something very wrong that felt terribly right.
Finn can't stop thinking about Winter and the night and he'll do anything to make her a permanent part of his life, even if it means separating Winter from the only family she has.
Their love was supposed to be unrequited but one grief stricken guy and one girl with too big of a heart results in disastrous consequences.

Review by: Fidah 

Unrequited is the fourth book in the Woodlands series by Jen Frederick. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone as they follow a new set of main characters. Personally, I've not read the other books in the series but I can tell you that you should read them in order especially if you have intentions to read all of the books. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of Jen Frederick's books as well as the other books in this series.
First of all, the writing was really great. The book is written in two perspectives, and you can tell them apart clearly because of how distinct the writing is between the two. Something about the writing, plot and characters just pulls you in from the start. I finished the book within two sittings and it kept my attention throughout the entire span.
Winter and Finn are two very likeable characters. They've had their fair share moments of grief and it has shaped them to who they are now. There wasn't much character development for both of them, although there were a few changes. I think the book focused more on the relationship between Winter and Finn. I wished there was more mention of their family, excluding Ivy because she was a pain in the ass for most of the story. I am happy to see the other characters in the past books making an appearance in the story because while I may not have read the books, it was great to read about them.
Unrequited is a romance new adult novel that is sweet and lovely. While it wasn't perfect, it was one of the best new adult novels I've read this month. A great read for anyone needing a light and easy read.
4.5 Stars

Review by: Heather

Unrequited is the fourth book in the Woodlands series and ever since Unraveled I was dying for Fin's book. I really didn't know what to expect from the grieving house flipper but I was hoping for a broken alpha (those are my favorites).
Winter is the younger sister of Fin's high school and some of college girlfriend, Ivy and after Fin experienced a loss so devastating, one night Fin found solace in Winter.
Unrequited is the story of family, of wanting to do right by them but to what extent? Does the sister code matter if a break up was so long ago and the feelings too strong to ignore? 
I really do adore this series though I have to say I was a little disappointed in this book. I really didn't connect with Winter at all and I thought Ivy was just an awful, immature character. 
Fin stole the show! He was a good mix of broken, hot and sweet. An alpha in the bedroom made for some seriously steaming scenes. I just wish there was less sex and more story. There was something missing and I just can't put my finger on it. That's not to say I didn't enjoy it because I did. Like all other books in this series I devoured it on one sitting and am looking forward to what comes next for our beloved Woodlands crew. (Hopefully Adam!)

"Are you humming?" Bo asked.
I looked up from pulling on the dingiest carpet I'd seen in months. This house I'd picked up was vile, worse than usual. Bo had suggested it was a meth factory, given the needles, rotten egg smell, and burnt patches on the walls and flooring. It could have been, or it might just have been an ordinary addict's house, but there was shit everywhere.
If I was humming, I didn't realize it, but I was in a decent mood. I figured once I got Winter to just sit and talk with me, we’d work it out. That was something worth humming about.  
I just shrugged and went back to work. "Just trying to block out the god-awful music you choose to play. You've been up north here for almost a year. Can't you play anything but country songs?”
"I could." Bo paused to toss a handful of staples in the trash. "But I know it annoys the hell out of you. And that makes the music sound that much sweeter."
"Too bad you don't know shit all about constructing a house and you still have to hang on my dick until you can get it right."
"Which is why I play music you hate. It fits our dysfunctional relationship."
"I thought you were going to therapy to fix your problems."
"If by ‘therapy’ you mean having a ton of awesome sex with my girlfriend, then yes, I'm in therapy all night and random times during the day." I snorted but wisely said nothing. "But speaking of therapy," Bo continued. My response was a loud groan that I hoped would be hint enough that I didn't want to talk about whatever it was that followed. Bo ignored me. "How's your mom?"
"Well, she texted that she got up and had coffee today, so I count that as a win." I reached down to tug harder on the carpet. Did they glue it down instead of just stapling the edges?
"Mal says 'Paradise lies under the feet of your mother.'"
That made me stop. I gaped at Bo. He threw up his hands, one still holding a crowbar he was using to pull up the tacking strips, the long thin lumber pieces that held the carpet on the edges of the room.
"What the hell does that mean?"
"Apparently it means if you don't make your momma happy, you ain't gonna be happy."
"If I knew what would make her happy, I'd do it," I replied.
"I suck at this comforting thing." He pulled off his hat and scratched his head. "But maybe you outta talk to someone else?"
"Like Lana?" I grunted. "No thanks. Between her and Mal, it sounds like I should be taking my mother on a date."
