"The first time I saw her, I knew this girl was wilder than any stallion I’d ever trained. She was headstrong, wounded, passionate and free. And I had to have her…"

Brittany Ray doesn’t care about her bad reputation. Growing up in a sleepy beach town with a junkie mom and a runaway dad, Brit’s learned the hard way that the people you love will only let you down. It’s no use hoping for love or happiness. Some dreams aren’t meant for girls like her.

Hunter Covington is one of those dreams.

Gorgeous, charming Hunter is damn near perfect—and it’s killing him. Son of Charleston royalty, he’s been trapped in a gilded cage since the day he was born. Now he’s breaking free. He’s quit law school to restore his grandpa’s old horse ranch, trying to soothe the demons in his soul. But Beachwood Bay is full of old ghosts, like the mysterious girl who spent an unforgettable night with him—and then slipped away before dawn. Brit. 

Everything about her screams danger, but Hunter doesn’t care: he’s never felt a connection so deep. And try as she may, Brit can’t resist the desire consuming her —or the safety she finds in Hunter’s arms.

A reckless passion. An undeniable bond. Scarred by their pasts, Brit and Hunter fight to heal old wounds. But will dark secrets tear apart their new beginning? And when love is the biggest risk of all, can they find the courage to face the future unafraid?

My Review:

Unafraid by Melody Grace was the perfect summer escape! This book was a quick captivating read. Even though there are two other books in the Beachwood Bay Series (Untouched & Unbroken), Unafraid can be read as a stand-alone without giving out many details from Emerson & Juliet's story. I love it when we get to see characters featured in previous books. You always want to know what your favorites are up to. I have read Untouched & Unbroken before I read Unafraid. I LOVED Juliet and Emerson, but Brittany and Hunter totally CAPTIVATED me. This story was a breath of fresh air! I enjoyed the reverse situation in this book. Usually I read about the ''Bad Boy'' who falls for the ''Good Girl'', but this was different and I loved it! 

Brittany was very easy to love. I loved that the author included Brittany's desire to become a fashion designer to the story. Brittany works hard to make her dream come true, even if nobody is giving her a chance. The determination to finish that exquisite dress, shows how much of a strong person she is. Her town gives her a reputation and she ends up believing that she is that kind of person after hearing it so much. She's afraid of getting hurt, so she leaves any relationship before she gets invested in it. Brittany was brought up by her brother Emerson. Even if Emerson gives her all his love, she thinks that nobody is ever going to love and care for her.  When Hunter comes along, Brittany plays hard to get and that makes the chemistry between them even more hotter! Once she falls under Hunter's spell, she is ready to accept that she does deserve to be loved and that she can trust somebody with her heart. I was cheering for her until the very last page. She deserved to find a man who could sweep her off her feet and make her feel what love is all about.

Hunter made my heart race with his sweet/sexy personality. You could see that Brittany marked his heart when they shared that one night of passion a few years back. He's trying really hard to make a life for himself, away from his parents and the family business. He's been suffocating in it for far too long. Starting his new life at his grandfather's ranch is exactly what he needs to make all the demons from his past go away. I loved the way he slowly infiltrated himself into Brittany's life. Day by day, he would show her that she could trust him and he made her believe in a HEA. I did get frustrated in some situations he had with Mommy Dearest! I was like ''Really Hunter? Do something!!! Fight for what you want!'' He did score big points with his seduction plan ;) That ranch tour he gave Brit … HOLY HOTNESS !! Ladies, Hunter knows how to bring the heat ;)

I give Unafraid by Melody Grace, 4.5 heart-melting, sexy, romantic stars ! I can't wait for the next installment in this series! Melody Grace created fascinating characters that are simply I-R-R-E-S-I-S-T-I-B-L-E ! Her stories leave you with a big smile on your face and a heart bursting with love. Escape to Beachwood Bay ... You won't be disappointed ;)
