Review: Unbroken (Disclosure Series Book #2) by R.E. Hunter


This is romance at its best. Unbroken is sexy, seductive, love-beats-all, we’re-in-it-together, can’t-be-stopped, heartwarming romance. R.E. Hunter has outdone herself with this sequel. By the time I read the words “The End”, my heart was full and my emotions spent. Dare I say, getting to the end of Luke and Embry’s journey was much like the euphoric release one experiences during the big “O”. The slow burn and seduction of a well told story. The spike in adrenaline during the climactic rise. Then finally, the pay off, the satiated, toe tingling rush coursing through you when reaching that ultimate high. In my head, I was screaming ‘yes, yes, yes!’ These two amazing, strong people held together and as a team confronted and defeated the obstacles in their lives. This is love.
“I don’t work without you, Embry. I never have, and I never will.”
When we last saw Luke and Embry, I had no clue how they were going to recover or which direction their story was going to go. My heart was hurting for them, my mind going crazy with all the possible scenarios. I was ecstatic that we didn’t have to wait long to see them find their way back to each other. That’s not to say that Ms. Hunter didn’t twist me in knots. On the contrary, my stomach and nerves pitched in quite a few places. Embry had to learn to let go of the hurt and decide to trust Luke again. Luke was noticeably sorry for all the pain he caused her and tried his damndest to make it up to her. Then there were the outside forces working against them. Old demons that needed to be dealt with. Her past. His. At one point, my heart was in my throat. Unbrokenkept me on edge till the very end.
He’d broken her down, shattered her, then put her back together again.
It is rare when a sequel can surpass the first book, equal footing yes, but to exceed book one doesn’t happen often. R.E. Hunter has accomplished that feat. If you haven’t yet picked up this series, what are you waiting for? Get to it!
“My home’s right here, Embry…As long as you’re there, I’m home.”
She was running toward her future. He was running from his past. When their worlds collided, nothing could prepare them for what was to come.
Reeling from Luke’s betrayal, Embry Jacobs is lost and looking for answers. His lies have ripped them apart, forcing her to question everything she thought she knew about the man she loves. But to give Luke another chance, she’ll have to forgive his lies and risk her already fragile heart.
Luke Brody’s past has finally caught up to him — in more ways than one. After losing the only woman he’s ever loved, he’ll do anything to get her back. But when he finally has the chance to make things right, unforeseen circumstances threaten to tear them apart once more.
When the truth comes out, will it set them free or break them both?
Book 1: Undone
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?

Unbroken Excerpt
The arms around her tightened and their owner let out a low, sleepy groan. At the sound, Embry stiffened and her eyes popped open. Suddenly, the sweet warmth of his body was a searing fire burning her bare skin and sending her into a panic. Slowly dragging herself from his embrace, she sat up in the bed. Her gaze traveled the room, taking in her surroundings before looking down at herself and realizing her clothes were missing, save barely there bra and panties. Taking a deep breath, she bolstered her resolve and glanced over her shoulder. The man asleep next to her was on his back, arm thrown over his head, his hard-lined chest and abs on display.
Embry’s stomach dropped violently and tears began to fall freely from her eyes. Oh no. No, no, no.

Excerpt
Everything he was looking for was there, in her eyes, a thousand words passing between them as they stood across from one another. His eyes swept over her, taking her in. She was fucking beautiful, her hair falling in loose waves over her shoulders, a tight sweater and jeans that could’ve been painted on, accentuating every soft curve.
His fingers burned to touch her, but he couldn’t ignore the sad look in her jade eyes, or the guilt that washed over him. He planted his feet firmly on the floor, fighting the urge to sweep her into his arms, hold her again. And then his world crashed and burned as Jeremy’s arm shot out, hooking around her waist and pulling her into the classroom. She turned, stealing a hopeless glance over her shoulder, then she was gone.

Excerpt
Embry let out a soft moan as she snuggled into the warmth of the strong arms around her. She was exactly where she wanted to be. And for the first time in almost a week, she felt content, happy…except for the slight pounding in her skull. She cracked her eyes open, peeking out from beneath her lashes, only to slam them shut again when the sunlight assaulted her too-sensitive vision. Ouch. Laying in bed for a few minutes longer, she waited for the hazy fog to lift from her brain and her eyes to adjust to the bright light of day.
The arms around her tightened and their owner let out a low, sleepy groan. At the sound, Embry stiffened and her eyes popped open. Suddenly, the sweet warmth of his body was a searing fire burning her bare skin and sending her into a panic. Slowly dragging herself from his embrace, she sat up in the bed.

Undone by R.E. Hunter (Disclosure Series #1)


Undone by R.E. Hunter did just that, it undid me.  I was an emotional mess afterwards, but soaked up and loved every single minute of it. 
Spellbound, I did not, DID not want to put this book down.  But of course as in life, I was faced with many interruptions; one being of the six year old variety.  So I found myself going to great lengths to find some much needed solitude and finish this book.  I even took to hiding in the children’s bathtub with the curtain drawn, lights off, and hoping beyond hope they would not spy the glow coming from my phone.  Why was I reading on my phone?  Because it’s easier to conceal in my pocket.  Whereas mom walking through the house toting her Kindle is like wearing a neon sign that blares DISTURB ME with an arrow pointing directly at me.  So aside from the cold from the tub seeping through my clothes, I settled in to finish reading about hot, sexy, seductive Luke.  Professor hot, sexy, seductive Luke and his taboo romance with Bree.
I honestly fell in love with BOTH characters.  Embry, Bree, is a twenty-five year old law student.  She is dedicated to her future and is constantly working hard to maintain her high GPA and keep her scholarship.  She’s smart and strong.  Bree may not see the strength in herself, but I could.  She’s got a past that has left marks on her emotional well being.  But when she meets Luke, he makes her feel safe and secure.  She finally takes a chance at a relationship and love again.
Luke, oh my Lord where do I start?  He is intense and seductive.  I love a man who looks you in the eye while charming the pants off of you.  But he’s patient.  He doesn’t want to rush things.  He wants to take the time to get to know Bree.  Luke cares for her and takes care of her.  He’s a nurturer with a sexy, southern accent.  Seriously, I could on and on and on and…  You get the point.
I could not get enough of these two together.  They absolutely fit!  But, Luke has kept something from her.  It divides them romantically for a while.  My heart ached to see them apart.  They were hurting, themselves and at some point each other.  When they do get back together of course my heart rejoiced.  I was elated.  We’re on the road to happiness here.  But oh no, no no no.  R.E. Hunter couldn’t leave it there.  Luke has one more secret he’s kept from Bree.  A pretty big one.  It brought Bree’s world to an absolute halt.  My heart split and pieces of it feel into the pit of my stomach.  I was literally in tears.  As if that wasn’t enough, Ms. Hunter has one more curveball to throw.  The last page in the epilogue…the last two sentences…broke me.  I was crying for Bree and Luke and the state of their relationship.  I was angry at the possibilities over what the last two sentences could bring in the next book.  In case you haven’t guessed by now, yes, it’s a cliffhanger ending.  But a very, very GOOD cliffhanger.  A double cliffhanger!  One of the best ones I’ve read.
R.E. Hunter did an amazing job evoking feelings in me, the reader.  I felt every sensation there was to feel in this book.  Every caress, every heated stare, the frustration and anger; I felt all of it.  I love when an author does that to me. 
I truly cannot wait for the sequel.  Ms. Hunter has made a fan girl out of me.  
    
PROLOGUE
This can’t be happening. That thought ran on a constant loop through her head as she sat in the cold, uninviting classroom, the smell of antiseptic invading her nostrils. A shiver crept up her spine, and she couldn’t tell if it was from the temperature or her nerves. Maybe both. She sat on a hard plastic chair, hands gripped in her lap, her foot tapping furiously against the linoleum. The anticipation was killing her. She studied the three people at the front of the room, their heads bent together as they whispered amongst themselves.
Her heart thumped in her chest, the dull thud echoing in her ears as she sat silently, waiting. Her head swam, and she struggled to keep herself afloat instead of drowning in the anxiety that threatened to pull her under. She strained forward, hoping to catch even a small piece of their hushed conversation, but all she could hear was the shallow murmur of their voices. She wanted to get it over with. Like a Band-Aid, it would hurt either way. Might as well make it quick. She’d had to pick up the pieces of her broken life and move on once before. But she couldn’t do it again, not after all of her hard work. She wouldn’t accept it, she couldn’t.
How did this happen? They’d been careful. Hadn’t they been careful? She swallowed the lump in her throat and tried in vain to think of something, anything else.
The older gentleman on the end cleared his throat, pulling her from her thoughts. “Miss Jacobs?”
She looked up at the members of the university’s disciplinary committee, taking them in one at a time. She straightened her back and lifted her chin, hoping the outward display of confidence would give her some semblance of the same feeling on the inside. That was shot to hell as soon as she opened her mouth. “Y-yes, sir?” she answered, her voice trembling.
“Do you know why you’re here?” the other man asked, his eyes kind.
“No, sir.” She shook her head, but she was pretty sure she had an idea.
“Let me tell you,” the older man interjected, opening the folder in front of him. He explained the purpose of the hearing and the university’s policies regarding disciplinary sanctions.
She sat back, rubbing her palms on her pants and trying to calm down. As she listened to his words, she was hit with a rush of emotion so strong it almost bowled her over. Good. Bad. Happy. Sad. Betrayal. Rage. Shock. Relief. Relief? She fought to keep focused on the seriousness of the situation before her as a litany of memories assaulted her consciousness.
