Synopsis (Goodreads):
Whore. Slut. Typhoid Mary.

I've been called all these at Central College. One drunken night, one act of irresponsible behavior, and my reputation was ruined. Guys labeled me as easy and girls shied away. To cope, I stayed away from Central social life and away from Central men, so why is it that my new biology lab partner is so irresistible to me?

He's everything I shouldn't want. A former Marine involved in illegal fighting with a quick trigger temper and an easy smile for all the women. His fists aren't the danger to me, though, it's his charm. He's sliding his way into my heart and I'm afraid that he's going to be the one to break me.

Impulsive. Unthinking. Hot tempered.

I allow instinct to rule my behavior. If it feels good, do it, has been my motto because if I spend too much time thinking, I'll begin to remember exactly where I came from. At Central College, I've got fighting and I've got women and I thought I was satisfied until I met her.

She's everything I didn't realize I wanted and the more time I spend with her, the more I want her. But she's been hurt too much in the past and I don't want to be the one to break her. I know I should walk away, but I just can't.
Thoughts on Unspoken: Ahh, yes. Getting back to the hotties that comprise the Woodlands boys is never a hardship. This time around, we're dipping into Bo's life. He's a little messed up. Not terribly so, but he definitely has some issues to work through. (Honestly, I think one of the reasons Bo's not a hot mess is because of the brothership he's found with his Marine buddies. 'Cause that boy could have fallen hard on the wrong side of things, but he held strong.)

Bo's lady love is AnnMarie. She's... surprisingly not messed up. I mean, despite everything she's been subjected to she's pretty darn strong. Part of her strength comes from actively avoiding anything that puts her in the path of her tormentors, but still. She didn't break down. She kept pushing forward. Bo's attention throws her for a loop and she's decidedly wary about him at first, but he wore her down.

And it kinda rocked.

I liked revisiting Noah and Grace. I liked seeing a little more into the lives of the other men who share the Woodlands house. I liked getting to know some of Bo's Marine buddies.

I guess I'm saying I liked this book. A LOT.
