Review: Unraveling You by Jessica Sorensen

Unraveling You
By": Jessica Sorensen
Release Date:
Series: Unraveling You #1

Lyric Scott has always had a good life. Outgoing, spunky, and musically talented, she’s constantly surrounded by family and friends, yet she still feels there’s something missing. 

Then she meets her new next-door neighbor Ayden Gregory. Mysterious, sweet, and sad, Ayden is the exact opposite of Lyric and exactly what she needs to fill the void in her life. 

Ayden has been through more than most people and believes his life is always going to be rocky, so when he’s suddenly adopted by the Gregorys, he’s thrown for a turn. But even with a new, loving family, he still finds himself haunted by the memories of his old life. The only true breath of fresh air is when he’s with his best friend, Lyric Scott. 

As Lyric and Ayden grow closer, the lines of their friendship start to blur. But when Ayden's past unexpectedly pushes its way into his new life, their friendship and newfound attraction will be tested. 

**A novel about Ella and Micha's daughter and Lila and Ethan's son from The Secret Series. However, this series can be read on its own.**

Oh how delightful was it to see the kids of Micah and Ella and Lila and Ethan becoming the best of friends.  The story was adorable, and serious and really made you think about the offspring of all these great characters you have come to love in the past. 

As we left off with everyone previously Ella and Micah were pregnant, low and behold we meet Lyric.  Who has the best characteristics of both of her parents and really sounds like a doll.  She’s so full of energy that even I wanted to be her friend, seriously.  Lila and Ethan on the other hand seems as if they couldn’t have kids for whatever reason, but they had no problem adopting, many kids.  Their latest addition is Ayden.  Now he sounds really interesting in various ways.  He really transforms in this book into a guy I would also like to be friends with.  

The two of them are so very different but I think they bring out the best in each other which is always a beautiful thing in itself.  Where Ayden is quiet, Lyric is outspoken and has got some spunk to her.  It's so cute watching them interact with one another but there are things that Ayden is hiding not only from himself but from everyone else as well.  Until the day he can finally review what really happened to him he can't move on in a normal healthy way.

Jessica Sorensen always has a way of shining a light on things that we ignore on a daily basis that has nothing to do with us, but sometimes a light nights to be shined on it.  In this book they deal with adoption, secrets, memories, kidnapping and even death.  That's just a few things but let's not forget the really good things as well like love and friendship which is stronger than anything in this world I believe.  With that you can get through anything and these two definitely have a strong friendship sometimes slipping into a different territory but never quite there.

I know that sometimes I felt like they didn't really act their age, but maybe it was because of the pure innocence of Lyric, and Ayden he's just tortured or has been tortured to revert back to a younger age, but even though I didn't feel like they were their age I know that sometimes there are people like these two out in the world, and they too need our attention.

This is really turning out to be a really cute side series (yes it can be read alone) but oh man, that ending.  I was a little mad only because I DIDN'T WANT IT TO END!!!  Really I can't wait to get the next book in my hands, amazing series, love this author and anything she writes.  The cover is good, but I don't see them getting that far in the book, should have been just a little more innocent on the cover, at least until the next one because I know things will happen (cross fingers).
