Unravel You 
by Diana A. Hicks 
(Cole Brothers, #1) 
Publication date: November 18th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Unravel You is the enthralling sequel to Love Over Lattes and can be read as a standalone. It is also book one in the Cole Brothers series, a new family saga, binge reading experience: 5 brothers, 5 full-length novels in 5 months.

College graduate Valentina never expected to fall for the hot as hell and intimidating Derek Cole when she accepted his offer to rent his property.

From cottage to mansion, Valentina is certain she doesn’t deserve the fairytale unfolding. But Derek gets what he wants… and he wants her. 

He’s “the one” for her, but before she says I do, she has to survive a month long trip to his family’s estate in Atlanta. Gaining approval from four brothers and an over-protective mother might just be her hardest test yet. 

For billionaire Derek Cole, this homecoming is a chance to mend the damage he caused when he walked away from the family business.

Just when they think they have a handle on their happily ever after… their past and future collide.

Note: This is a steamy romance with explicit sensual scenes, happily ever after, no cheating, and no cliffhanger. Can be read as a standalone.

Praise for Love Over Lattes:
“Hicks’ first installment of her Desert Monsoon series is confident and assured with strong storytelling, nuanced characters, and a dynamic blend of romance and suspense…A sexy and irresistible tale for fans of contemporary romance.” – Kirkus Reviews

I love a hot and steamy romance with great family ties and wonderful friendships and Unravel Me has both. Apparently, Derek and Valentina first appeared in Hicks’ Love Over Lattes and are starting off the family saga of 5 hot and sexy brothers in the Cole Brothers series.

Derek didn’t like waiting. He wanted a life with me; he didn’t see why we couldn’t start immediately. For my part, I couldn’t think of a single reason to stay apart from him, so I’d agreed to everything—the house, the ring, the fairy tale—though I kept waiting for the other glass slipper to drop. This was too perfect, too fast.

Valentina was in an abusive relationship before Derek so it took some time for her to trust any man, but Derek swept her off her feet and became engaged to a billionaire CEO within a month. Now their new whirlwind life is about to take another big step with a month-long stay at Derek’s home in Atlanta to meet his 4 brothers and intimidating mother. Unfortunately, Valentina’s life is in danger due to Derek’s bad decisions and their marriage may not happen.

Valentina seemed a bit timid at first, but her strength in overcoming an abusive relationship and raising a young boy by herself proves she is a fighter. Her kindness and quiet strength are a good compliment to Derek’s energy and drive as a billionaire CEO. 

As I said earlier, I like family sagas and within the first book there seem to be interesting potential relationships within the Cole family that I can’t wait to read next. If you love steamy romances with humor and suspense, read book 1 in the Cole series.

Thank you to Ms. Hicks for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
