Unbound - Colours of Love (Colours of Love Series Book #1) by Kathryn Taylor
is young and has led a sheltered life. She hasn't yet taken much of an interest
in men. It's only while doing an internship in London, where she meets the
alluring Jonathan Huntington, that our sleeping beauty is awoken from her
slumber. Jonathan is rich, incredibly attractive, and stems from British
royalty - but he is a far cry from Prince Charming. He lures Grace ever deeper
into his world of sinister passion, and she is sucked further and further into
the maelstrom of her own growing desires. But when Jonathan demands she do the
unthinkable to prove her love for him, she realizes just how dangerous her
feelings for him are.
Kathryn Taylor has been a writer since childhood - publishing her first story
when she was eleven years old. From then on, she knew that she wanted to be a
professional author one day. After a few career detours and a happy ending in
her personal life, her dream has finally come true: UNBOUND - COLOURS OF
LOVE is her first novel.
This novel is an incredibly well-written novel that was a page turning pleasure to read. Kathryn takes her time developing the story and developing the characters. Grace presents as a smart, slightly above average looking young woman who is a little naive in the ways of men and dating. Her introduction to her professional crush, Jonathan, can be best described as a fluke. From that moment on, Grace is privy to a series of encounters and circumstances with Jonathan that deepen their connection. My take on Jonathan is that he is something out of every woman's (wet) dream. While he is generally closed off (read: mysteriously sexy) and unreadable, his eyes are the key to his true feelings and desires. Grace's intuition into that truth is what makes this storyline so hot and steamy. Her ability to know Jonathan's wants and desires is just as sexy as their encounters themselves. You get the sense that this ability is unique only to Grace. As the story progresses, Grace becomes the epitome of sexiness - it's almost like you begin to see Grace the way Jonathan sees her. Taylor does a wonderful job of creating scenarios that are sexy (and maybe a little naughty), but somehow classy.
I was definitely taken aback by the ending. I was left feeling a little....uncomfortable(?), but definitely....curious to see what is going to happen next for Grace and Jonathan. By the end, I believe that Jonathan will be faced with a hard decision. I can't wait to see what's in store for Grace and Jonathan in Uncovered - Colours of Love. Run and read? Yes!
