    The Woodlands series is one of those series that I will literally drop everything for. Since the very first book I fell in love not just with the perfect writing style of Jen Frederick but with all of the amazing characters she produces.

    The Woodlands series is one of those series that I will literally drop everything for. Since the very first book I fell in love not just with the perfect writing style of Jen Frederick but with all of the amazing characters she produces. So as soon as a new Woodlands series is released I know I am going to sit down with a character I already know and love and get the opportunity to fall in love with another one.

    I was a little nervous when I saw this one was Adam’s story. See I really love Adam but he was such a massive manwhore and I am not a huge fan of rock star romances generally (groupies aren’t my thing) so I was apprehensive about what we were going to get. I knew I would love it I was just scared I was going to tie my stomach in knots dealing with angst and drama.

    I should have had more faith in my beloved Jen. Adam was just the perfect book boyfriend from page one. He fell so hard and so fast and was so sweet and devoted and just damn I want one BUT then he was also this pierced and tatted rock god who could throw out dirty talk and back it up. I didn’t know if I was going to swoon or spontaneously combust.

    Then of course there was Landry. She was totes adorbs. I really liked that she was part shy, insecure, computer geek with a streak of steel. Like most of Jen’s characters she was multifaceted and felt so real. Plus we got all of the other band members and their families and a little bit of the original Woodlands couples to just add another great part of this great series.

    If you haven’t met the men of Woodlands you have no excuses since Jen has them all on sale and if you’re lucky the first one might even still be free. And if you have already met them all then please message me so we can gush over how perfect Adam was as a boyfriend. Oh and you can check out my other reviews for this series right

    Woodlands #5

    No

    In this Woodlands group of friends from Central College who lived together, Adam is the musician of the bunch. He grew up on tour with his famous father, and has music in his blood. Finally on the verge of something big with his band, he's hit with the most inconvenient feelings when he spots Landry at one of his shows. Normally, he'd have no hesitation pursuing this beautiful redhead, but the sister of his new talented frontman has trouble written all over her.

    Adam has a serious case of love at first sight when it comes to Landry. He sees her and knows without a doubt, she is the one who is meant for him. I'm not a reader who is staunchly against insta-love. If the author can sell it, then I'm open to it. In Adam and Landry's case, I think it influenced my inability to fully connect to their romance. There was a certain detachment I felt throughout the book that I kept hoping would go away. But I never did seem to get on board with the emotional side between them.

    When it came to their attraction for each other, there was definitely nothing lacking. Not to mention, plenty of sexual tension and internal longing on both their parts. Adam was the the cutest with his secret desperation to be with her. Constantly having to suppress his desire for her, it became harder and harder to control. Especially when he could clearly see that she was equally as attracted to him.

    Landry was a great heroine, she had the nerdy thing going for her which is one of my reading weaknesses. In college, she was more than happy to stay behind the computer screen where she felt most comfortable. Now she's financially stable, but completely inexperienced with men. Her one experience with a guy was being stalked and attacked so she isn't exactly eager to go playing the field.

    After a hint of a threat from her stalker, her brother forces her on tour with the band to watch over her. Adam is assigned to keep an eye on her, it's keeping his hands off of her that's the real challenge. I liked how Landry was open with him about her crush from the start. She wasn't so shy or repressed that she couldn't be honest with him about her feelings. She just wasn't willing to risk developing deeper feelings for him if they were to have a physical relationship. She knew that Adam could have any girl he wanted and she was only traveling with them for a short time.

    There were a few things that didn't work for me, but that's not saying that didn't like it overall. It was still a solid three star read, I just found that I didn't have the same excitement as I have with most of her other books. I had a hard time getting absorbed in it. I think Adam and Landry needed more alone time, more time to develop their actual relationship and emotions. This story was more band centered, revolving around the varied band members interactions and visits from Adam's college friends.

    The other thing was that the stalker subplot didn't really do much for me. After having him discussed throughout the book, and having the threat of a reappearance hanging over her head, in the end it turned out to be anticlimactic.

    Jen Frederick is one of my go-to authors and I'll read anything she writes. While I didn't fully love this one, there were lots of funny moments and plenty of steam and chemistry to get your temperature rising. If you like rockstar romances that's low on drama, than this could be the right choice for you.

    Past his love of music he was also amazing with Landry and I adored these two together. Adam became super protective over her very fast and I loved reading about him pursuing her. I honestly wish we would have gotten more of Adam and Landry together but I think that's just because I loved them a s a couple so much. The hot rocker and the computer nerd, what's not to love?

    I actually lost track of this series somehow so I haven't read the previous book but I definitely plan on rectifying that soon. I need more of these men!

    I have enjoyed this series and have been looking forward to Adam's book. He is a musician that is finally finding his stride and is ready to go on tour with his new band. But his new lead singer, Davis, can't come on tour unless his sister, Landry, comes with them.

    I have enjoyed this series and have been looking forward to Adam's book. He is a musician that is finally finding his stride and is ready to go on tour with his new band. But his new lead singer, Davis, can't come on tour unless his sister, Landry, comes with them. For Adam that could be either the best or worst idea since he has been attracted to Landry since he first saw her. She's got a crush on him too. But her brother has already made all of the guys promise to stay away from her and also make Landry promise not to get involved with any of his band. So she is off limits and they are stuck in a tour bus together while they pretend they are not interested in each other.

    Adam is charismatic, talented, but controlling and stubborn. He wants to do things his way. So when Landry and the band challenges that, it causes tension. Landry is more a shy, awkward, geek that does not see her own appeal. And her past has traumatized her.

    But the more they are together, the more sexual tension, repressed feelings, jealousy, and anger rears its ugly head. Even as they finally admit what they want to each other, Landry still wants to keep them a secret from her brother and the band to avoid conflict.

    So it is a precarious situation that could unravel at any time. Not to the mention the really good reason that Landry had to go on tour with them in the first place. Adam has to figure out what is best for him, Landry, and the band.

    I had a bit of a disconnect with this couple and story. I am not exactly sure why. The fact that previous playboy Adam took one look at Landry and basically saw "forever" was a bit much. It was definitely a slow build and took quite a while for them to progress past their insta-attraction. And then the whole hiding thing further hindered them. It was a bit hard to get invested in their feelings when they were hiding them so much.

    It was told in dual points of view which I did like. I enjoyed the cameos of the other characters from previous books: Bo, Ann Marie, Noah, Grace, Finn, and Mal. And I liked the band Davis, Rudd, and Ian (and his wife, Berry).

    It was a love-on-the-road-fledgling-rock-band read with an off-limits-friend's-little-sister component. there was also a bit of suspense due to Landry's past. It was enjoyable enough, but was not that angsty or romantic. It did not have quite the emotional hook or turmoil that some of the other books in this series has had. But I do like the dynamics of the group of characters. Their banter and humor is fun. Mal still needs his story and now she has opened the door for a spin off with Davis or Rudd.

    I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

But all that doesn’t stop the insta-attraction they both feel. Even though they think the other could never feel the same …. But they have to fight it – which is not really easy when Landry has to go on tour with them for two months, because her brother doesn’t want to leave her alone with her stalker near by!

    I really enjoyed this book! Rockstar romances are my absolute favorite! I would’ve enjoyed it a bit more, had I known that this was book #5 in a series. But all the old couples just show up a few times, it’s not really necessary to know their stories. But I personally hate it to not know the first books in a series!

    But even without knowing much about anyone and anything, I really liked Adam and Landry. They were so adorable! I love rockstar romances where we’re really doing rockstar things like going on tour! And here we have all those adorable and crazy guys on a bus with one girl! Too funny!

    Too bad Davis told everyone HANDS OFF HIS SISTER! Poor Adam!

    It takes them a while, but of course they can’t deny their attraction forever.

    I loved reading it! I would’ve wished for a bit more. A bit faster in the sexiness department. Just a bit more. Not much happens. We’re on the bus and fight about music and the band, talk about the stalker and think about feelings. But nobody really does anything. Nothing really happens. BUT, I still liked it… I just wanted a bit more excitement! Not that there’s NO excitement. We have some sexy time and some frustrating moments and funny moments and suspensy scenes. It was a really great romance! A #RockstarRomance can’t do anything wrong in my eyes. It can always be better, but as long as it’s a rockstar romance, I’m pretty happy with it!

    . I enjoyed seeing them trying to resist the pull they had. It was a real torture at some point to see such sparks but not one of them could do a thing about it because of Davis.

    I love seeing how characters grow in a book and it was exactly how it happens in Unwritten. Laundry was a little insecure and became a woman with more confidence. Adam was a little too narrow-minded but he learnt to see things differently.

    Books about music are often a hit for me because I love to witness the backstage. With FMK being at their debut it was fun to see them progress as Adam's band to a real family where all are taking their right place. I'm attached to all of them. I really hope Jen is considering giving the other members a story because I definitely don't have enough of them all.

    Unwritten is just the perfect book if you want to snuggle on a Sunday (or any day) with music in your head and love in your heart.

    Don’t catch feelings for Adam Rees.

    I am a huge fan of this author's writing and I would like to start this review by saying that you please take it with a grain of salt. The things that didn't work for me might totally be your thing.

    Adam is mastermind and head of FMK, a rising star in the world of Rock bands. He is pretty much everything you can expect from a rocker, minus the drugs. At a gig in a bar he sees his future, a beautiful redhead who turns out to be his new frontman's sister. When he sees the bruises and cuts in her face and on her body he can barely tame his anger.

    Landry feels the instant connection with Adam as well. She has come to the bar because she didn't feel safe at home. She is a walking disaster and a catastrophe to happen. Her stalker came to her house and scared her. Unfortunately her brother is soon leaving for a tour, her parents are on a second honeymoon. Neither Adam nor Davis want to leave her behind. To take her out of the danger zone the band takes Landry with them on tour. While Adam loves having her close for the next two months she is his singer's sister and he and his bandmates have been warned to not touch Landry. How are Adam and Landry supposed to ignore their growing attraction when they are going to be locked up together in a tour bus for the next weeks?

    I loved Landry and Adam separately. They were lovely and sweet. Adam is super protective and possessive of the girl he has fallen in love with.

    He is also a bit arrogant and follows his gut feeling. Landry is the funny and nerdy heroine you can relate to. There was actually one situation she had experienced in her past that happened to me too and I had a deja vu and I giggled for a couple of minutes at the memory.

    Yup. that right there is me. She is also innocent and naive when it comes to men and her attraction to Adam is a little bit inconvenient since she has been warned that he isn't the relationship kind of guy. It was so sweet to see Adam pine for her. And right there was the problem - you don't get much interaction between the hero and the heroine until you reach the 40% mark. While I can totally get on board with insta-love here it didn't work for me because there was no relationship build-up. There was a lot of band drama and talk about Landry's stalker but not much one-on-one between the main characters which took away a lot of the plausibility of their growing feelings. All this distracted from the romance aspect.

    Landry is still traumatized from her experience with her stalker and and this setup in the storyline had so much potential.

    The execution was, unfortunately, a little bit lame in the conclusion. I expected more tension and action but that didn't happen. It was over so fast that I had to blink twice and wonder if that was it.

    In the chemistry department these two definitely worked. Once they give in to their mutual feelings and attraction it is explosive. Adam is quite the dirty talker! Whew!

    This book can be read as a standalone, in case you were wondering. I am definitely going to read the other stories in this series!

    Overall I did enjoy this story, as mentioned I loved the main characters, I just didn't feel the love between them. Still, Jen Frederick has a fan in me - she knows how to write likable and relatable characters. I am looking forward to her next book and I would love to get a story about Davis!

    That’s how Landry ends up on the road with Adam and the band. Due to the stalking and assault, she has been through, her brother refuses to leave town without. Adam comes from music royalty and has experienced some of his own fame in the past. So you would expect him to be a manwhore and all about the fame, but he is actually a really great guy and knows what he wants.

    Once he decides he wants Landry he decides to make a move until he realizes she might not actually be interested him. So Adam takes a step back and doesn't want to make her feel uncomfortable or pressured. The story is told in dual POV so you can actually see that Landry is fighting her own feelings for Adam. This back and forth, forbidden element lead to an awesome build up between them and I was hooked.

    I think a lot of people will enjoy

    and feel the same excitement I felt when reading. I am not a fan of rockstar books, but this one is perfect in the sense that you get this on the road, performing vibe, but you also don’t have to worry with the rockstar lifestyle. For me, that was a huge win since I am not a huge fan of angst. I have really enjoyed this series and I think Frederick did a fantastic job with Adam’s story.
