The sharpest ache comes from wanting what you think you can’t have…

Maybe Dolan has lived independent, free-spirited and unattached since leaving home at sixteen. Whiskey Sharp, Seattle’s sexy vintage-styled barbershop and whiskey bar, gave her a job—and a reason to put down roots. Cutting hair by day, losing herself drumming in a punk rock band by night, she’s got it good.

But a longtime crush that turns into a hot, edgy night with brooding and bearded Alexsei Petrov makes it a hell of a lot better.

Maybe’s blunt attitude and carnal smile hooked Alexsei from the start. Protecting people is part of his nature and Maybe is meant to be his…even if she doesn’t know it. Yet. He can’t help himself from wanting to protect and care for her.

But Maybe’s fiery independent spirit means pushing back when Alexsei goes too far. Still, he’s not afraid to do a little pushing of his own to get what he wants—her in his life, and his bed, for good. Maybe’s more intoxicating than all the liquor on his shelf…and he’s not afraid to ride the blade’s edge to bind her to him.

Maybe would do anything for her sister.  And moving to a new place is the least of it.  Meeting and convincing Alexsei isn't something Maybe expected but can she accept the changes he brings?
Unraveled by Lauren Dane is first in her new Whiskey Sharp series.  I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Alexsei and Maybe.  Both were family orientated and extremely loyal.  I loved that Ms. Dane made them friends first.  They were so different but it did not matter.  Alexsei enjoyed Maybe's quirkiness and loved her all the more for them.  And Maybe brought a smile to my face.  She was deeper than I expected but she had a way about her that made you happy.  I love that Ms. Dane gave us such opposites in Alexsei and Maybe and yet they fit.  Seeing Alexsei put Maybe first just made me love him that much more. 

Ms. Dane gave us a story where the love built slowly but you just know it is meant to last.  I can't wait to see where Ms. Dane will take us next in this new series.
