Unravel Me by Kendall Ryan

Gitte:    Ashlyn is researching and writing her final thesis – on associative amnesia disorder. She doesn’t do relationships. They are more hassle than they are worth. Now Ashlyn, she blew kind of hot and cold…(no I don’t mean that!).

Jenny:   I liked Ashlyn as a character, but yes she blew hot and cold (hmmm and yes….you did mean that!).  She doesn’t do relationships normally.

Gitte:    Ashlyn meets ‘Logan’ when her Professor initiates a consultation as it will help her reaserch. Logan is kind of like her test subject. When she meets him he is handcuffed to a bed under suspicion of murder with no memory of who he is or his past for that matter. Ashlyn’s intentions are to study him and perhaps help him as well. However she feels almost an immediate attraction and Logan seems to be drawn to her too.  Ashlyn wants to help ‘Logan’ figure out his past and find out who he is and what his name is. The pair of them have an instant connection in more ways than one! She showed amazing courage placing her faith and trust in ‘Logan’, and he in her.

Jenny:  Ashlyn Drake has an orderly life.  She is a Psychology and she has the opportunity to meet a perfect test subject for her amnesia thesis – a young man without any memory of his previous life, including the murder he’s accused of committing.
Logan is very gorgeous and very male.  Ashlyn hasn’t had a boyfriend in a long time and spends a lot of time alone studying.  She is drawn to Logan in a way that is more than professional.  There are a few things that draw her to Logan including his cryptic tattoos and they definitely have a chemistry between them.  She really wants to learn about his past and help him get his retrieve his memory.

“ I watched him sleep and saw him lying there, this living, breathing, attractive man, who so incredibly male.”

Gitte:    ‘Logan’ is confused and desperate, who wouldn’t be! He wakes up and everyone treats him like a murderer and he hasn’t got a clue! I felt really sorry for him, I can’t imagine what that must be like! Now ‘Logan’ was HOT, alpha-male, he was a dirty talker and umm he had a big…..yeah…so I liked Logan!!  I also learnt something new…Amnesia does not make you forget “everything” …that is all…

Jenny:   Oh Logan definitely remembered how to do a lot of things! I really did want to read more about what happened, not just be told if you get what I mean.  I wanted to be “present” once Logan started remembering his past – we did get to see his memory unravel somewhat but I felt I needed more.

Gitte:    I have to say I liked how the mystery of ‘Logan’ was unravelled through his paintings and his tattoos. I also liked the suspense of who this man is/was and how Ashlyn was determined to help him find himself again despite the possibility of unravelling something dark and finding out he is not what she believes him to be. I would have loved to have Logan’s POV as his past was unravelled.

“…was like admitting I was nothing, a nameless faceless nobody. With nothing to my name and nobody who even cares, It was too much” – Logan

Jenny:   I thought the paintings being used that way very clever and you felt for Ashlyn during those times having to witness Logan’s memory returning and what it might mean for her.    Still, it left me wanting to “know” how Logan felt about his past coming back to him – we were never told how he felt – it just sort of happened and I feel we should have put in the moment so we could feel his frustration and emotions.

Gitte:  I was slightly disappointed though, because the premise of this story was fab, but I believe it could have been so much more. I wanted more. Once the big reveal happened it was almost over and it felt a bit like an anti-climax.

Jenny:   I agree.  The actual premise of the story was brilliant and I really did love what I read but I was looking forward to getting into the “nitty gritty’ f his past and seeing Ashlyn and Logan explore this together in detail.  Because this didn’t happen it may me feel disconnected to the this in some way..

Gitte:    3.5 – As I said the premise of the story was fab just wanted more.

Jenny:   3.5 – I loved the characters and the actual story was really good.  The build up was great but then it was all over. Because we weren’t present for Logan’s “story” it left me wanting more as well

  1. I freaking love you ladies! Your review cracked me up a bit =) Thanks for keeping it real — it DOES sound like an amazing premise!

  2. I looked for this book on amazon, and couldn’t find it. 😦 am I doing something wrong….or maybe it hasn’t actually come out yet?

  3. free bets

    This style is spectacular! You naturally know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own weblog (nicely, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I actually enjoyed what you had to say, and far more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
