Unbound (Colours of Love #1) by Kathryn Taylor
Synopsis from Amazon:
Grace is young and has led a sheltered life. She hasn't yet taken much of an interest in men. It's only while doing an internship in London, where she meets the alluring Jonathan Huntington, that our sleeping beauty is awoken from her slumber. Jonathan is rich, incredibly attractive, and stems from British royalty - but he is a far cry from Prince Charming. He lures Grace ever deeper into his world of sinister passion, and she is sucked further and further into the maelstrom of her own growing desires. But when Jonathan demands she do the unthinkable to prove her love for him, she realizes just how dangerous her feelings for him are.
Whilst reading this book I had to try very hard to forget that I have read 50 Shades of Grey first as it is very difficult not to compare the two. Saying that though I feel I have enjoyed Unbound more and it surprised me. I judged the book by its synopsis and thought that once you read one, you’ve read them all.
Grace is an attractive, intelligent student on her way to London to work as an intern at a very prestigious companies. She bumps into Jonathan, the mysterious and unreadable owner of the company) at the airport and makes such an impression on him that he decides to have Grace working closely with him. Of course it’s not long before the affair starts. It’s certainly not what Grace was expecting but she is drawn to the handsome, somewhat dark, boss and she knows pretty soon that she has fallen in love him.
Jonathan obviously has emotional issues and refuses to get involved in anything other than sex and makes it pretty clear that that is all Grace is going to get out of him.
I liked the book. I thought the story line flowed well, the language was good (although I do shudder at the word pearl) and the raunchy scenes were well written. It’s a more believable story and I am looking forward to reading the next instalment.
Thank you to NetGalley and Bastei Entertainment for access to this book in exchange for an honest opinion.
My rating: 3.5/5
