Release Tour with Review: Unraveled (The Ryder Boys #1) by Mia Kayla

Title: Unraveled
Series: The Ryder Boys, Book One
Author: Mia Kayla
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 4, 2017 
I once loved a boy who grew into a man. 

A man that promised me stability, loyalty, and a lifetime of security. I had it all—at least I thought so. Until mere minutes with someone else made me want for more. More than I already had. Forbidden wants that I shouldn’t wish for. 

Cade Ryder was everything my Ivy League pedigree should have stayed away from. Every sane part of my existence screamed for me to keep my distance. 

Distance from where he worked. Distance from him, his body, and his soul-searing eyes. 

But the more I stayed away, the more our lives merged. Now my life—my normal—is unraveled. My heart, my hope, my new future all in the hands of a tall, tatted bartender. 

I planned my forever with the perfect man. But sometimes the heart wants more than stability, more than security, more than what others want for you. One thing’s for sure—destiny can’t be planned.

My Review

“For once in my life, I wanted to welcome this danger. I wanted to live on the edge.”

“My whole body gravitated toward his as though he was fire and I needed the voodoo of my foul mood melted.”

“I was tired of pretending I was happy in front of everyone else and trying to convience myself that I was happy. Sometimes when you lie long enough, you tend to believe the lies.”

“His body, his being, his whole self was meant for me, too. I believed it. I believed it with every thrust of his body against mine, with every word that left his mouth and with every kiss he planted on my lips.”

Addictive. Unable to put down. Fast-Paced. An incredible story-line. These are the words that come to mind when I think of Unraveled.  Unraveled is incredibly well written and a great romance with a bit of a forbidden aspect. It also had a great opposites attract element as well. I loved the characters. I found them easy to connect with and easy to relate to. I was hooked on them from the very first page.

From the moment I encountered Cade and Angie, the sparks and chemistry were off the charts. Their connection so intense, it left me breathless with anticipation. I couldn’t wait to see them together again. I was hopelessly addicted to them and couldn’t stop myself from devouring their story.

Cade is the kind of guy that you just have to know more about. He is sexy and confident. He appears to be a total bad boy. But underneath all the tattoos is a strong, dedicated and just overall good man. A man who is broken, but who has a heart of gold. The kind of man that would do anything for those who were lucky enough to be in his life. The kind of man that knows what he wants and knows what is important in life. The kind of man that brought Angie back to life. And Angie…She’s not perfect. On the outside she appears to have it all: wealth, a great job, family. But, on the inside she is just bursting to be set free. She isn’t happy with the status quo, but is afraid to ruffle feathers. Meeting Cade showed her that she needed more out of her life and that things had to change. Angie had a lot of growing up to do throughout this story, and I won’t lie, there were plenty of times where she just frustrated me to no end. But, I knew her heart was in the right place and that she cared deeply for Cade, she just had to be willing to take the leap.

Overall, I thought Unraveled was a really great read. It was so enjoyable and captivated me right to the very end. I thought this book had just the right amount of sweet and steamy romance, drama and some interesting twists along the way. I think The Ryder Boys Series is off to one to terrific start and I can’t wait to see where this series is going to go next!

Chapter One

The clock flashed ten p.m. on the stand beside me. 
One potato. Two potato. Three.


One wiener. Two wiener. Three.


Now 10:01 and all I could think of at that moment was… six more minutes. Six more minutes until he came inside me and we were done. Done until the next time. Well, next Saturday night, just like clockwork.


Pitch darkness surrounded us in our two-bedroom condo in the most posh area of downtown Rosendell. The only gleam in our room was the brightness from the city skyscrapers outside highlighting the movement of his body against mine. The sweat of his skin slick against my skin. The scent of sex permeated the air.
Sex was always the same. Missionary style on our bed with him pumping into me. I closed my eyes and tried to let the sensations over take my body.
For once, I wished he’d call me sexy, talk dirty…do anything to make me feel as though this wasn’t a job that I was expected to perform. I wanted to feel that connection, like we used to and not feel like we turned into an old married couple when we were merely in our early twenties.
Seven years together wasn’t a lifetime. Being in a relationship shouldn’t seem like a death sentence.
