Wow, what a messed up little story A.J. Wolf concocted with Unsettled. It is littered with violence, murder, unconventional connections and mind bending twists. With bodies turning up non stop, the tension is constantly at an all time high. The origami butterfly's left on each victims body was a creepy detail, adding a layer of mystery and psychological authenticity. The "romance" definitely takes a backseat in this thriller but nonetheless, I really enjoyed the characters and their dynamic -as twisted as it was. Hadley and Rhys individual stories are both sad and emotional but, together they form a weird bond that is its own rollercoaster of struggles. I LOVED that even though I figured out the secret I was still blown away by the ending which is not usually the case. The best part of this book was that A.J. did not use cheesy gimmicks to create a constant unnerving feeling or to build tension. The story was perfectly crafted and that made it that much more believable AND enjoyable!

He sees something in my expression that makes him pause, and I rush his lips, sinking my teeth into his lower lip and jaw. He hisses into my mouth, the grip on my wrist becoming painful. My tongue swipes out to lap at the sting, sucking in the exhale he blows from his lungs. My lips close around his for just a whisper of something sweeter, kinder, before I pull back.
My mouth opens before I can stop it, shameless words spilling from my lips. Those demons of his are swirling just below the surface, and I can't help myself from trying to get them out. "Promises, promises. Don't get my hopes up if you don't intend to keep your word." It's false bravado I'm spitting, but not a lie. Fuck, I want that. I want nothing more than to feel every ounce of pain this brutal man has to offer. I don't know what has him so wound up, so bent on destruction, but I'm fucking here for it.
He shakes his head at me, flicking his wrist so quickly I don't see the line he's cut into my skin until the blood starts to well up in tiny little droplets. I bite my bottom lip to keep from making any noise, the slight bit of pain jumbling with the throb between my legs to muddle my brain. His tongue lands hot on my skin, lapping along the cut in a way that has my body trembling to fight the urge to arch into him. Almost in the same breath, I feel his dick bob along my slit, just the tip breaching my inner lips to tease me further.
