Unspoken (Woodlands, #2) - Jen Frederick 2.5-3 starsI wasn’t very intrigued by the first book in this series; Undeclared. You can read my thoughts right here. But I decided to give this one a chance – after all, it focuses on Bo and he’s kind of cute. Let’s get one thing strait before I start my criticism: Jen Frederick really knows how to write a coherent story and her writing makes the reading so easy and enjoyable. I whizzed through the story in no time and I was completely caught up in the story the second I turned on my Kindle.AM is kind of a Mary Sue and I disliked her A LOT at the beginning. The girl has no idea how to stand up for herself and lets everybody else fight her battles. She is such a push-over and I hate girls like that. The only reason I kept on reading was Bo – he is so real and sweet and sensitive and funny and adorable and gorgeous and amazing and… I think you catch my drift. He is in no hurry to have sex, like Noah was, and it makes the love story seem so much sweeter and believable. After all, if you really love someone your only thought wouldn’t be to get them in bed – it would be important, but not the most important thing! Anyway, back to AM. She becomes more tolerable through the book and I even started to like her at some point. I also ended up thinking that she and Bo where perfect for each other.The story contains a very specific moral and tries very hard to show exactly how awful rumors can be and how they can change how people respond and react toward each other. It’s very interesting, but honestly I never paid much attention to it – I wanted hot-Bo-scenes and I got plenty of those! One of the things I liked most about the book was the humor. It was so much fun! My favorite part: The whole mayonnaise-scene – I LOVED it. It was so much fun and I laughed my ass off!Throughout most of the story I really loved it. I was stuck between 4 and 5 stars and it seemed like the book just got better and better. But then the end happened – or something happened very close to the end – and it completely changed my view on the story. It wasn’t at all realistic and it made both AM and Bo seem like idiots. I was so disappointed and that’s why the book ended up with ‘only’ 3 stars (which is still pretty good, though!)After reading this I have to admit I’m intrigued – I actually want to read the rest of the books and hear about the rest of the Woodland-Guys. They are so different and their stories may be interesting. I’ll definitely keep an eye out for more books from Jen Frederick!
