Review: Unwilling by K.D. Wood
Neely McIntire’s dreams warn her about the future but will not protect her from the danger hiding in plain sight. On graduation night, she plans to tell her best friend, Hayden Nelson, that she's in love with him. Instead, they argue. Neely's hurt feelings leave her vulnerable, giving her secret admirer, Andrew Huckley, the opportunity to put his mother’s monstrous plan into motion. When Neely gives in to her broken heart and pushes him away, Hayden knows he must fight to recapture the spark he felt in their last kiss. But will he find her in time to reverse the damage or will she be changed forever?

I was apprehensive when I first decided to read this book. This isn't my preferred genre, and I generally don't get into fantasy books too much. I didn't want to not like it. I am glad that I chose to pick it up.
This is a very unique and intriguing story. The fantasy element of this story is just that, an element. It isn't the whole book. I was pleasantly turning the pages from start to finish in this one. Between the sadness that consumed me at times and the smiles that I held during other times, this story kept my attention throughout.
The twists and turns in this story had my brain reeling. The plot is a little more out there in left field than I normally prefer, but it worked for this story. I don't think it would have been good with out being so out there.
I couldn't wait to get to the end of this story to see how everything was going to play out. By the middle of the book, I was greedily soaking in every word and in a hurry to turn the page to see what was coming next.
Even if this book isn't your preferred type of read, I still recommend it. This is a combination of love, friendship and fantasy. It is the perfect balance of all three that you won't be disappointed.
K.D. Wood lives in north Mississippi with her family and a very spoiled White Waug. She creates love stories and smokin’ southern erotica, but not your mama's happy ever after. She’s a consumer of chocolate but not spiders and completely composed of liquid awesome. When not in her office pounding the keys she can be found under a snuggly blanket, cup of Donut Shop close by, with her nose in a book.
