In the end, Unfiltered was a middle-of-the-road romance for me. I'm not sure if I'll continue the series or read more by Leigh Lennon, but I'm glad that I at least tried one of her books.

The Review

Leigh Lennon is a new-to-me author, and when the request to review Unfiltered come to me, I decided to try it out. It’s the first book in The Unbreakable series.

I’ll admit that I had trouble getting into the story. I was having trouble liking Justine, and the insta-love between Nick and Justine just wasn’t working for me. Then about 1/3 of the way through the story, it was mentioned that the book was set in my hometown, including a couple of restaurants and landmarks I know, and I perked up a little. I was still feeling a little iffy about the characters and relationship, but I decided to keep going.

I never truly felt wholly engaged in the story, but I will admit that there was a turn of events that really tugged at my emotions, which helped get me through. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t a bad story. I just wasn’t a fan of the writing style. I did like the fact that the characters were a little older since that’s not seen as often in a romance. But they just moved too fast and were so extreme my head was just spinning.

In the end, Unfiltered was a middle-of-the-road romance for me. I’m not sure if I’ll continue the series or read more by Leigh Lennon, but I’m glad that I at least tried one of her books.
