Five years ago, Embry Jacobs ran...

She ran from a past that still hasn’t let her go, but her dream of becoming a lawyer is stronger than her fear of confronting that past. Embry’s sole focus is to get through law school—with the help of her best friend, Morgan—and make something of the broken girl she became. Not thinking about falling in love, being in a relationship or even entertaining the idea of romance, Embry is moving forward one day at a time.

Luke Brody is charming and sexy, and has a past of his own. He wants nothing more than to put his demons to rest and move on with his life. But, when Embry enters the picture, is he destined to repeat those same mistakes?

Blindsided by their instant attraction, neither Luke nor Embry are prepared for the feelings they’re developing. But will it all be for nothing?

Will they let their pasts destroy them, or will they risk everything to fight for their relationship when it all comes undone?

OMG, I loved this book!! Once I started it, I could not put it down. It had me hooked from the prologue.

This story is about a young lady named Emery. She has just graduated from Florida State and moved back home after leaving home 4 years ago running from an abusive relationship with her high school sweetheart Jack. Her best friend Morgan convinced her to finally come back home so they could attend Whitman grad school together to become lawyers. I loved Morgan!! She is the best bff that every girl wishes they could have!! She is crazy (in a good way)

While Emery was heading to meet with her financial advisor she runs straight into the chest of non other than Luke Brody!! HOLY HOTNESS is all I can say!! They exchange hellos and go their separate ways but they can’t seem to stop bumping into each other everywhere they go. After bumping into each other at a social one evening Luke grabs Emery’s phone and adds his number and it begins from there.

The secondary characters in this book are awesome (well most of them anyway) I love Emery and Luke together but they both have a past. Will one be to much for them to continue to have a relationship? How will the other feels when the truth begins to come out? This book does end on a cliffy. I am seriously on a huge book hangover!! I cannot wait for book 2 to find out more!! Will they find their way back to each other?? I def recommend this book to others. Go get this one now, you will love it!!



 Author Q&A

***THANK YOU SO MUCH TO MY WONDERFUL FRIEND R.E. HUNTER FOR TAKING THE TIME TO ANSWER OUR QUESTIONS <3***

What is your favorite scene in the book?

Oooh. Well there are a few I can’t share because of spoilers, but *one* of my favorite scenes is Luke’s rules, when southern sexy gets dirty south

How do you unwind after a stressful day?

I love to snuggle up with a good book and glass of wine.

What was the most challenging part of writing Undone?

The amount of time that it took away from my husband and family and everything else in life. It’s a full-time job on top of already having a full-time job. Your characters become your family, and you’re living an entirely differently life through them, inside your head.

Was Undone always supposed to end in a cliffhanger? How many books do you have planned?

I knew early on that it would be a cliffhanger. When I was plotting it out, I really wanted it to be a stand alone, but as soon as I started writing and the story started flowing, I realized there was no way to tell Luke and Embry’s story in just one book. I’m planning on three books total.

Favorite Book Boyfriend and why?

Oh this is such a tough one. I have to say Andrew Parrish from The Edge of Never. He was just perfect in every way. He was funny, sexy, a little alpha and rough in bed, he sang and played guitar, had tattoos, was spontaneous and loved Cam so much! *swooooooon*

If you were brought to a deserted island, which 3 books would you bring with you?

I’m totally cheating on this question, but I have to. I’d need the FSOG series, we’re counting that as one. The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning, that’s two. Anddddddd then Gabriel’s Inferno series, that’s three! Or eleven, but who’s counting!

Any advice for writers either working toward publication, or about to be published?

I’ve been told this many times and it is so true. Write for you, write what you love. There are a lot of amazing things about our indie community, but also a lot of things that can distract and discourage you as a writer. Just write for you.

What’s next for you?

I’m working on the sequel to Undone as we speak! I’m really excited to be back in my characters’ heads and to see where they’re going to lead me!

Excerpt

Embry sat in the middle of Luke’s floor, surrounded by baking flour. It was everywhere.

He walked in, and she did everything she could to hide her smile when she saw the look on his face. He was sexy as usual with no shirt, pajama pants hanging off his hips, and bedroom eyes. Until he took in the scene in the kitchen. His beautiful bedroom eyes widened into surprised saucers as he stared at Embry.

“Problem?” she deadpanned.

Luke shook his head, seemingly at a loss for words.

“I was going to make you breakfast.” She picked up a handful of flour and let it sift through her hands like a child would sand on the beach.

“That was nice of you,” he said carefully. “What happened instead?”

Embry hung her head. “I had an incident with the flour.”

Luke walked toward her, leaving floury footprints on the dark, tiled floor. Squatting in front of her, he brushed her hair from her face. “I can see that, baby. But what, exactly, happened?”

Good question. She’d woken up determined to surprise him with a nice breakfast. After searching his well-stocked pantry and refrigerator, she found all the ingredients necessary for blueberry pancakes. She pulled everything out that she would need except the flour. His pantry had tall pull-out cabinets, and the flour sat at the top of one. She’d poked around until she located a step stool. She used it to reach the flour, but the stool didn’t give her enough height. Stretching as far as she could, her fingers grazed the tip of the package. She hoped she could knock it over into her arms, but the flour toppled into her chest before it fell to the floor and exploded.

“I was going to make you blueberry pancakes, but I knocked the flour down from the top shelf of the pantry, and it kind of exploded.”

His eyes traveled around the kitchen. An inch of flour covered most of the surfaces, including Embry. He brought his eyes back to her and wiped at a smudge of flour on her cheek. “I kind of figured that part out.”

She glared at him, grabbed his arms, and pulled, causing him to fall to the floor in a cloud of white powder.

He narrowed his eyes and tackled her, pinning her arms above her head and hovering over her. “Really, Bree? You sure you want to play this game? You’ll lose.”

Never one to back down from a challenge, Embry wiggled beneath him, trying to pull her arms free. “Bring it on, Brody,” she said, her voice husky.

His mouth found hers, and he released her arms, giving her free rein to explore his body. She ran her hands over his muscled back, up his arms, and into his hair. Just as she was starting to enjoy herself, he pulled away. Before she knew it, he had pulled her back to her feet.

“All right,” he said, clapping and making flour fly. “Pancakes. Let’s do this.”

Embry stepped toward him, softening her eyes and sticking out her bottom lip in a perfect pout. “I’m not interested in pancakes anymore.”
