Review - Unspoken (Woodlands, #2) by Jen Frederick

Blurb from Goodreads:
Whore. Slut. Typhoid Mary.

I've been called all these at Central College. One drunken night, one act of irresponsible behavior, and my reputation was ruined. Guys labeled me as easy and girls shied away. To cope, I stayed away from Central social life and away from Central men, so why is it that my new biology lab partner is so irresistible to me?

He's everything I shouldn't want. A former Marine involved in illegal fighting with a quick trigger temper and an easy smile for all the women. His fists aren't the danger to me, though, it's his charm. He's sliding his way into my heart and I'm afraid that he's going to be the one to break me.

Impulsive. Unthinking. Hot tempered.

I allow instinct to rule my behavior. If it feels good, do it, has been my motto because if I spend too much time thinking, I'll begin to remember exactly where I came from. At Central College, I've got fighting and I've got women and I thought I was satisfied until I met her.

She's everything I didn't realize I wanted and the more time I spend with her, the more I want her. But she's been hurt too much in the past and I don't want to be the one to break her. I know I should walk away, but I just can't.
My Review:
*I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Jen Frederick*
3.5/5 stars.

AnnMarie (AM) West made one mistake and she's been paying for it ever since. As a result she spends as much time off campus as possible.

Beauregard Randolph (Bo), an ex-Marine, is a ladies man who fights illegally. He's witty, handsome and exactly the type of guy that AM should avoid.

I enjoyed this book more than the first one - mainly because I preferred AM and Bo (sorry Noah and Grace!). Their banter made me smile and I connected with them easily. I really felt for them, especially AM.

There were serious topics throughout the book such as domestic abuse and bullying but the love story was sweet and I loved reading as AM and Bo fixed each other.
