UNWRITTEN by J.R GRAY
Movie Star Lessons: Success is lonely.
I should have been on top of the world but I felt trapped, suffocated by fame. My life wasn’t my own. I belonged to the fans and the media. Too famous to leave my house without attracting a crowd. I’d almost resigned myself to the impossibility of a relationship in the time of hook-up apps made more impossible as an actor, until I met the only person forbidden to me: My director.
Four months of working side by side while trying to keep my hands to myself, or one of us would lose our job. The temptation was going to kill me.
Unwritten was a slow burn romance with plenty of sexual tension and enough chemistry to keep me reading 'till the end. I though Mel and Tobias were cute in the way they wanted one another so badly but refused to give in until the moment was appropriate.
Generally, I do like the heat level to be high but the fact that they weren't banging like a screen door in a hurricane made Unwritten realistic and a solid read. It helped that it was clear from their first meeting just how badly they wanted one another. The stolen kisses didn't hurt either.
The HEA was made all the more sweeter because they waited. From coworkers, to friends, to lovers with a seemless transition.
I really enjoyed how Unwritten unfolded and look forward to reading the next book in the series.
When not staying up all night writing, J.R. Gray can be found at the gym where it's half assumed he is a permanent resident to fulfill his self-inflicted masochism. A dominant and a pilot, Gray finds it hard to be in the passenger seat of any car. He frequently interrupts real life, including normal sleep patterns and conversations, to jot down notes or plot bunnies. Commas are the bane of his existence even though it's been fully acknowledged they are necessary, they continue to baffle and bewilder. If Gray wasn't writing…well, that's not possible. The buildup of untold stories would haunt Gray into an early grave, insanity or both. The idea of haunting has always appealed to him. J.R. Gray is genderqueer and prefers he/him pronouns.
