Abandoned by her birth parents and ignored by her adoptive family, Maddy Page believes she is unlovable. She only allows herself to dream of falling in love. That changes when she meets MJ; handsome and kind, MJ penetrates Maddy’s defenses. Maddy soon finds herself confiding in MJ like she has with no one else, revealing secrets even her closest friends don’t know. He makes her feel safe – a feeling she’s never experienced except in her dreams.
When Maddy witnesses MJ disappear and reappear in thin air, she realizes she might have been wrong about him. He could be dangerous – maybe even a killer. Determined to uncover the truth of who–or what – MJ is, Maddy ignores her instinct to run. But she soon realizes that getting close to MJ could cost more than a broken heart – it could cost Maddy her soul.
Thank you Sheldon for totally nailed my reaction after reading this book. I’m in a fangirling mode right now and still can’t turn that off.
“I feel as if I were Alice, falling down the rabbit hole into a world of nonsense and make-believe. Her story ended with it all being a dream. I don’t think I’ll get that lucky.”
Maddy is different, or I would prefer, special. She’s good at everything, literally everything that she wanted to be good at, and has dreams that are way too vivid to just be dreams. However, after the secret that was revealed to her by her uncle years ago, she closed herself up. She believed she was unloved and never let anyone be so close to her heart. Until MJ… For me, Maddy is a very brave girl. She might not be those badass heroines that make people (or more specific, me) look up with awe (since I’m pretty sure I’m shorter than all of them), and quite pessimistic sometimes, but she is definitely brave and care for others.
When MJ, a Protector, came to Maddy’s town on an assignment, he mistook her for his charge Amber, and fell for her. And did I mention he is an angel, a freaking ANGEL?!? I’m totally swooning over him right now. Supernatural being? Check. You-are-my-eveything kind of guy? Check. Mystery? Check. I love the fact that, despite he is an angel, he gives out a vibes of imperfection, which makes him even more amazing. Hold your seat, and you will expect to see a lot of heart-throbbing and also super hilarious scenes wherever our dear MJ go.
Unclaimed is a great book, a really good one. Laurie Wetzel really knows how to capture we readers with all the mysteries tangled and woven in each other. I love the duo POV between Maddy and MJ, which give us a big hole to peek in our two protagonists’ mind. The character development is absolutely amazing and beautifully written. And the twist, oh, it was so perfect. The plot seems to tell you to turn right, but then the twist will drag you back and push you to the left. This book is an amazing page-turner and will make you wonder restlessly what will happen next. Highly recommend it!
