New Release Review: Unwritten by Rachel Lacey

by Rachel Lacey
Release Date: May 1, 2018

Pop sensation and Hollywood star Katherine Hayes has worked hard to maintain her squeaky-clean image. But with nude photos going viral on the internet, the ensuing smear campaign threatens to ruin everything.

A chance meeting with a handsome college professor—who’s adorably clueless about her identity—is a rare break from the stress. But when shocked recognition dawns in his eyes, her survival mechanism kicks in. She can’t simply let him walk away to add grist to the rumor mill.

Josh Randall has already loved and lost his soulmate. Yet when he witnesses Kate in a vulnerable moment, he can’t deny the pull between them. Even though he believes down to his bones that true love doesn’t come twice in a lifetime.

A no-strings fling sounds like the perfect solution. But Kate never expected Josh to see the woman hiding behind the celebrity—or that the paparazzi would catch on to their sizzling passion so quickly. Making it hard to keep their tangled emotions from tearing their hearts apart when it’s time to say goodbye…

You can read the full first chapter for free on Rachel Lacey's website. 

My review: 4.5 stars!
This is SO much more than rock star meets college professor- and it's so well crafted, it's hard to believe Rachel Lacey when she says this was the first book she wrote 10 years ago! I discovered Lacey when I read (and loved) her Risking It All series so I was excited to read the first book in her new duet. Katherine and Josh are both likable characters, both dealt more than their share of heartache in their lives. Filled with realistic dialog and believable chemistry, I thoroughly enjoyed Unwritten and am looking forward to the second book in the duet.
