Payton Ricci is the last person Wes Hoffman ever expected or wanted to see again. After the disastrous sexual experience between them twelve years ago, he was only too happy to put the whole episode behind him.
Wes Hoffman is happy in his life, he's surrounded by loving friends, a great job and no commitments. But when his group of friends slowly start to all get married and pop out children, he soon starts to feel a little out of place and like a third wheel.
Payton Ricci is on a night out with her best mates, it's a bachelorette party and she feels like she is always the bridesmaid and never the bride, but that's okay. She's not really looking for a strings attached kind of relationship, just a quick fondle with a handsome man. So when she catches her eye on Wes Hoffman sat at the bar, Payton can't believe her luck.
There couldn't be anything worse than spotting Payton Ricci at the same bar as him. All Wes wanted was a quite night at the bar after a stressful day at work with a nice cold pint. Not at all to be reminded of the past and for it to brought up in his face, but he should of known better with Payton.
Soon there's an argument and Wes is running out of the bar as fast as he can with his tail between his legs, he doesn't want to be around her, he felt embarrassed twelve years ago when he was a teenager he doesn't want to bring up that embarrassment again.
But Payton does, knocking on the door of Wes Hoffman's house, she wants an explanation and she wants one now. So going on a drive, Wes explains everything and to bust his ego even more she finds it hilarious, but soon finds him sweet and caring.
Soon both of them are in too deep and out of their depth, with the amazing romantic gestures and passionate but hot sex, have they become a big part of each others lives or are they just "friends with benefits"? Which if they are, they have both bargained far much more than they thought, their feelings towards each other and love.
Will both Wes and Payton declare their love not only to each other but to themselves? And what will it damage on the way there? Friendships? Family? Or their future?
Undenied by Maya Banks, is the third and last installment in her Unbroken Trilogy series, and I must say I have really enjoyed reading the series. For once I didn't get board throughout the books as there was a plot all the way through like I've said before, and not just sex.
Each book has all the same characters in, but are all about different couples and relationships, but Banks has managed to make sure everyone else's relationships flow smoothly throughout the books. I think I will read more of Banks's books in the future as I am very happy with them, I feel I am closer to finding a set of books like the Knight Trilogy, which I am so happy about!
I loved Payton and Wes's relationship, it was essentially like reading a book about two love struck teenagers. Awkward, shy, lustful and a head full of questions. I don't know what else I can say about the book or the books, I've really enjoyed reading them and will definitely be reading some more of Maya Banks's work.
They we're so good, that I ended up reading all three books back to back! Now that's something!
I must say before I forget that the cover art for the three books are absolutely beautiful! I mean, just LOOK at them. I love the cover art for these books, they look lovely and beautiful! It made it even better too read, as I do love a book with a good cover ;) Beautiful, I know it's simple but they're perfect!
Also I finished the book yesterday, so I've not let anyone down by posting it too late ;)
I will give this book 7 out of 10
The book series all in all: 8.5 out of 10
