Ari Daniels didn’t count on her whole world tumbling down around her in a mess of shredded promises, broken love, and unbelievable heartbreak. Alone and stricken with grief, she shouldered the blame and eventually closed her heart off, refusing to open it for another. After all, anytime she tried, guilt and regret were waiting in the wings to remind her how painful it was. A bet and one steamy night with a stranger force Ari to confront all she’s been hiding behind. She tries to move on, but he refuses to stand down, wanting what she is terrified to give—herself. This man may very well destroy her in the end, especially when it’s clear he has his own demons. What happens when two broken souls come together, finally allowing themselves to believe in the beauty of love … only to have to fight harder than ever to keep it.
There are some authors, for me at least that I have read since their first book has come out and Harper Sloan is one of those. I have loved her books since I first read Axel years ago so I was so excited for Unconscious Hearts and let me tell you I was NOT disappointed in any way. I think this is her sexiest and best book to date and I am so excited to have more from this series.
If you are looking for a dirty talking, alpha, sexier than hell hero, well you have found him in Thorn. More than once I was clenching my thighs with some of the super-hot scenes between him and Ari. I love watching a big alpha male get brought down by a woman that he didn’t see coming. I think Thorn very well may be my favorite character from all of Harper Sloan’s books and that is saying something since I have a couple who I never thought could be topped.
My heart hurt for Ari, for what she goes through. The pain, the heartbreak, the destruction of trust all are things that made her who she is today. Thorn was the best thing to have happened to Ari, even if their start wasn’t in a traditional sense at all. The chemistry between them is off the charts and you could feel the pull between them from the start. The way Ari and Thorn are together just makes you believe that the perfect person for you is out there and you never know when you will find them. Both Ari and Thorn have pasts that are painful, but they begin to heal each other.
There is an added element of suspense and danger that just added to the story and kept me on my toes. I couldn’t put Unconscious Hearts down, I had to know what was going to happen. I am already on edge waiting for the next book because I have a feeling that it very well may even better than Unconscious Hearts is. If you are looking for your next read Unconscious Hearts is what you should be grabbing because this is one you won’t want to miss!
