Unbridled~by Nicole Dykes


“Because…he’s trouble all wrapped up in one hell of a body.”


Unbridled is the second book in the Monroe Family Series. Although each book can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading Unsocial, the first book in the series, as the family dynamics are established in the first book and will continue to grow through each book of the series.


“The Monroes are truly incredible people. They should be studied. They just adopt strays like crazy and make them part of their family.”

Luke Monroe is all grown up. He has left the safe haven of his family to fulfill his legacy as a successful college football player. With his full athletic scholarship, Luke’s life should be perfect. And yet, he longs for his family and his custom bike shop that he left back home. He would give anything to trade in the parties, practices, and football if he could just go home. When wandering the campus one day, he sees her. Hannah. His old best friend that moved away.

“I just didn’t want my hell to touch you.”

Hannah has been living under the scrutiny of her religious father and family her entire life. After years of doing everything “right” and “holy”, she has convinced her father that she can be successful living independently on a college campus pursuing a degree. Under the scrutiny of her religious roomie, Hannah has been flying under the radar just fine. Until Luke walks back into her life.

“He’s so deeply embedded in my soul, how am I supposed to move on?”


“I just didn’t want my hell to touch you.”

Although many years have passed, Hannah and Luke still share “that thing” between them. They are drawn to one another. Luke is desperate to find out why Hannah is afraid to let him in. Hannah is terrified that if she allows Luke back into her life, her father will whisk her away. She also fears that when Luke discovers the demons from her past, he will hate her forever. However, through the support of the Monroe family and Luke’s friends, Hannah and Luke manage to find a way together.

“I resist the quick descent she’s wanting, choosing to take my time and explore her body along the way.”


“I’m hers and she’s mine.”

Told in dual POV, Unbridled is a tender NA Romance full of smoking hot passion and strong family bonds. Luke is quite the bad boy, and Hannah is a perfect match to tame his bad boy ways. The Monroe family is full of love, and the diversity of the characters continue to keep me engaged in every moment that they experience. I was so happy to see more of Dylan and Brooke and the entire crew. No doubt, this family will continue to cause trouble, break hearts, and always lean on each other to find their way!


I highly recommend Unbridled to NA Contemporary Romance Fans. You will fall in love with this “second chance/friends-to-lovers” romance the second you pick it up! I look forward to more greatness from this author!
