Title: Unconditional (Always #1)
Author: Cherie M Hudson
Genres: Contemporary Romance,New Adult
Synopsis: She has a future she can’t escape. He refuses to let her face it alone.
Twenty-one. The age when adult life begins. In my case, it’s the age I learned my future sucked, big time, and there was nothing I could do about it. Every minute of every day I face the fact my life is only going to get worse. Why? Because I have early-onset Parkinson’s Disease. I’m not going to let it get me down, but I also can’t let anyone close. That’s not fair to them, or to me. Trust me. So that means my heart and my soul is off-limits.
But then I traveled to Australia on a college scholarship program and life royally screwed me over. Again.
Raphael Jones is an arrogant Australian celebrity, the hottest guy on campus and a pain in my ass. Worst of all, he makes me ache for a life I’ll never be able to have. Especially when he takes me in his arms and does wicked things to my body.
How do I have a hope of surviving ten weeks in Australia when it’s not just the paparazzi who have me in their sights, but Raph as well? Because Raphael Jones is a man who always gets what he wants. And no matter what I say or do, he refuses to accept what I so painfully know: a life and future with me is no life at all.
*I given an eARC via NetGalley in exchange an honest review*
“Unconditional” is actually my first New Adult book and I
love love love it, the characters feel so real. “Unconditional” follow Maci Rowling and her life in Sydney University. Both Maci and her mother suffered Parkinson’s Disease, I learned more about Parkinson’s Disease in this book (even it took me long enough to figure what is Parkinson’s Disease)
I want to visit Australia so badly after reading this book, I want taste Vegemite even everyone said it taste gross or just buy a TimTam (Note to myself: Buy a pack of TimTam when I have time) and “Unconditional” had me at Chris Hemsworth (I meant have you look at his face? It’s perfection)
I love Raph, he’s funny, a little bit cocky, very sexy, smart, artistic and sexy (point added for his family owning an kangaroo farm). I just fuxking love him so much. And Heather, she’s Maci’s best friend; every girls needs a Heather in her life. Brendon is fit and beautiful, I was worried it would turn into a love triangle at first. Brendon is like the big brother to Maci.
This book is like riding a roller coaster, first it’s funny, then fluff and then steamy then heartbreaking. But don’t worry it’s a happy ending. I adore the chemistry between Maci and Raph and the friendship of Maci and Heather.
Overall its have everything I love: dealing with life, contemporary romance, sexy male characters, Austria?! Count me in! I can’t wait for the next book in the series. Maybe I want to date a Austria boy maybe a certain blonde with lips ring , in a band called 5 seconds of summer *wink**wink*
