Book Club Thursday: Review

Welcome back to Book Club Thursday! 

This week we are doing a review! We reviewed Unleashed by Rachel Lacey! 

What happens when you find the right one at the wrong time?
Cara Medlen has a serious case of animal attraction. And it’s not because of all the foster dogs she’s rescued. She’s got it bad for her incredibly sexy neighbor. Her one rule: Don’t get attached. It’s served her well with the dogs she’s given to good homes and the children she’s nannied. Yet the temptation of Matt’s sexy smile might just convince her that some rules are made to be broken.
Matt Dumont doesn’t need his skills as a private investigator to detect disaster on the horizon. Cara is everything he thought he’d never find—gorgeous, funny, and caring. But there’s no way he can start a relationship just as he’s about to move to another state. Talk about bad timing. As their attraction sizzles too hot to deny, they’ll have to make a decision: forget the consequences and let loose, or forget each other and let go…

Barnes & Noble

I grew up with a passion for reading and an unquenchable need to write stories of my own. As a girl, my journals and, later on, computers were always filled with snippets of stories and dialogue. These characters got inside my head and wouldn’t rest until I’d written them down. The number one item on my bucket list has always been to publish a novel, and I am beyond thrilled that my dream came true with Unleashed.
The first thirty years of my life led me around the globe on some amazing adventures. I’ve been climbed by a monkey on a mountain in Japan, gone scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef, and camped out overnight in New York City for a chance to be an extra in a movie. These days, I’m a work-at-home mom with a six-year-old son, and the majority of my adventures take place in the books I write. I currently live in warm and sunny North Carolina with my husband, our son, and a variety of rescue pets.



If you've been following me then you know I'm always looking for a new author to try. I saw where Lori Wilde, a author that I just love, was taking about this book and knew I had to give it a try. I'm so happy that I did. I really love the characters and how well-written the story is. Being a pet owner I have to give a shout out to all those foster families out there. Back in the day I did fostering and ended up having to give it up when I started to look like the crazy cat lady. You won't be able to not like both Cara and Matt. You feeling for all that Cara is going through. Her life seems to be on a downward spiral and it's time for her to make some changes. One good change is when she meets Matt. Of course that doesn't last long when you find out that Matt is moving back home, which happens to be in another state. You'd think this was the end before the beginning, but have a little faith. I love this story and can't wait to read the next one. This is the perfect book to relax with a glass of wine on a comfy couch. Happy reading! 

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you will make sure to stop by my fellow Book Club Thursday Bloggers and see what they thought of Unleashed. 

Stop by on April 2nd when we are doing a theme post, Back in Time! 


  1. I have her latest on my review pile. I'm in animal rescue (run a rescue) so a bit nervous about it. Glad to hear she did a good job!

    1. I don't think you should be nervous. As much as they touch on the subject the story is about them.

    2. I tend to be nervous because they either do an amazing job of writing about rescue or a total blunder. Always a bummer to see the latter. Sounds like she did a good job though :)
