It’s not enough that Kelsey’s husband left her for another woman. Oh, no. The “other woman” had to be her best friend Evan’s fiancée. Not only has she lost her marriage, she fears losing Evan to the lingering awkwardness and humiliation that hangs between them.

Evan has no intention of letting that happen. He’s got plans…namely, an extra plane ticket to Hawaii now his future wife is out of the picture. There’s only one person he wants on the trip with him, the one who’s always been there for him. The one he should never have let slip away into the arms of a traitorous friend who shattered her heart.

Kelsey is anticipating a week of fun in the sun with the man who’s always treated her like a little sister. No one’s more surprised when she discovers that Evan has seduction on his mind—and that she’s more than ready for it.

Love is the most powerful healing force of all. But past demons have a way of ripping open old wounds, and threatening the survival of even the strongest friendship…

I liked this book, maybe not as much as I liked Rock Me, but there's only one Brian. Evan and Kelsey were really cute together and the sex scenes in the hot tub and in Evan's office were hot!

Looking forward to the third book in this series. ...more

Almost 4 stars.

“This has to be the craziest, scariest, sexiest, most emotionally exhausting and unbelievably orgasmic vacation I ever had.”

4.5 stars.

“I missed you,” she said softly and, though the top of her head only reached his chin, he heard that voice as if it had whispered in his ear. This was right. This was how they should be. He vowed in that moment to never let anyone come between them again. “I missed you, too,” he murmur

Evan Ross knows how to treat his woman right!

First off, I need to thank Elena, my smut librarian for this recommendation! Love ya!

Unleashed is a great friends to lovers story. I thought Evan was just the sweetest guy in the entire world. Under terrible times, Evan and Kelsey fly off to Hawaii to e ...more

Evan and Kelsey are old friends. Kelsey caught her husband with Evan's fiancee in their bed. Obviously Kelsey gets divorced and Evan breaks off the engagement. There is just a matter of Evan's nonrefundable Hawaii honeymoon... he decides to take his old friend Kelsey. Sparks fly and they realize the ...more

This book has been on my TBR list for a while, and it was worth the wait. I loved this book. I read Rock Me, not knowing there was another book related to it. Evan and Kelsey were a great couple, but was a little irritated with Kelsey's ex-husband and the interference his presence played in Evan and ...more

By Duchess Nicole August 29, 2012

I ended up reading the Ross books backwards, Starting with Rock Me. And I must say, I didn't expect to love Evan so much. But his relationship with Kelsey just felt so right...from the first page of their story, I felt good about them. And when they get their sexy on, whew! **Fanning myself**

Evan i ...more

smutazing? Is that a thing? It should be.

Unleashed is a story about two friends who turned into lovers. They also got a second chance at love. How? Well, Kelsey and Evan went to the same school and met during a class when they were forced to be partners on a project. From then they were sort of inse ...more

By Cami September 16, 2020

This is my first Cherrie Lynn book and I wasn’t disappointed. I liked this friends to lovers story and Evan & Kelsey were both good characters.

My only issue with this is that maybe I should have read it myself and not listened to it as an audio book. I don’t want to say I didn’t like the narrator b ...more

By ~V~ May 30, 2012

Omg, i loved this book!! It was sooooo sweet and sexy as all get out!! Loved the whole friends to lovers theme. Loved that Evan and Kelsie had secretly been pining away for each other for ten years but remained nothing more than super close friends through other relationships, and a failed marriage. ...more

By Wendy November 25, 2012

This is such a great and beautiful story. I couldn't help but fall in love with Evan Ross. The chemistry he and Kelsey share, just blew me away, and it certainly got the little heartstring into a flutter.

Girls, you were so right, I did love this one! ...more

By Jen December 17, 2013

December 2013 reread.

Don't get me wrong. My love for Brian Ross and his bad ass, fierce ways means Candace is one lucky bitch! I sometimes forget just how much Evan Ross rocked my world with this first book, though. Great time for a re-read! ...more

By Karen October 09, 2012

What a sweet romance story!!!! I loved Evan and Kelsey's story. It was the perfect HEA I needed after the emotional roller coasters I've been reading lately. It had everything a really good romance needs. Evan Ross... so swoony... the lighthearted and funny guy, gorgeous and confident, successful in ...more

I was expecting a late night so I could finish this, but instead I made the kids look after themselves so I could get this finished at a reasonable hour. Plus I didn't want to stop reading this.
If the main characters had communicated a little better there relationship would have been so much better, ...more

By R.E. June 25, 2012

I absolutely loved this book. It was a quick read but that didn't change anything for me. I read the Ross Siblings books out of order, so I read Rock Me first. I really didn't think anything/anyone could beat Brian Ross. That book was a lemon bonanza and I immediately fell for Brian. I held off a bi ...more

By Jennifer October 17, 2020

Friends to lovers. Evan is perfect for Kelsey and shouldn't have let her get away all those years ago. I was expecting a little more drama from the ex's, but what was there was perfect. Kinda of like their sex, angst, internal drama, and more hot sex. ...more

By Felicia August 06, 2018

This was a super cute book. With the title being Unleashed, I was expecting some like grand book that was going to have action and adventure as well as smut. Lol. But it was lovey dovey and cute and shit. But still a good book.

This is the story of Kelsey and Evan who had been best friends for a deca ...more

I've had this book on my Kindle for such a long time, and I wish I had read it sooner because I loved it.
I really liked the fact that it was Kelsey and Evan who were friends before their partners came along (that they didn't meet through them). They had been through so much together already, both ...more

I really want to kick myself for not reading this earlier, it had been on my wishlist for ages.

One really important thing for me is a epilogue. A really good epilogue to me is like ice cream on the cake! A fantastic epilogue is like a pleasurable vacation in paradise, and it's location landed us in ...more

By Beanbag November 14, 2012

Uniquely Moi's reviews of this series got me interested and I'm glad. This was a decent book. More of a 3.5 rounded up, but I like the old friends to lovers trope and this one is handled well.

Kelsey and Evan have been friends since college. Kelsey married a childhood friend of Evan's who ended up ch ...more

I'd just come off of reading a few dark books when I picked this one up. I think because of it I've probably rated this one just a teensy bit higher than I would normally. You know how it is: book slump + book depression = book love for a HEA.

This was an easy read. A great second-chance r ...more

3.5 Stars

The downside to reading a really great series is that the next few book never seem to live up to it no matter how good they are - and i think that was my problem with this book.

I had already read Rock Me (the second installment in this series) which i really enjoyed, but this one I didnt re ...more
