  Good Monday morning all, I have been infected by I swear the zombie plague thanks to my husband .  Colds abound in the family today so it is a good day to read .  Today I am going to review THE UNRAVELED TRILOGY  by Theresa Sederholt

                            BOOK BLURB 

This box set contains all three full-length books of The Unraveled Trilogy plus a bonus short story "Follow Your Dreams," not available elsewhere!
At twenty-seven, Raven Anderson experienced more heartache than anyone would in their lifetime. Finally, her life seems on track when she starts doing what she loves the most: teaching second grade.

However, the best-laid plans are not always the right path as Raven learns when fate puts her in the direct path of mega-billionaire, Jaxson James Phillips, owner of Raiders, Inc., a corporate raiding company. With the spotlight now focused on Raven, her past is threatening her future. So, she does what she does best—run!

This beautiful girl, with the violet eyes, has left Jax, who never gets rattled, totally speechless. Used to getting what he wants, he can’t understand why she’s running from him. As time goes on, he slowly unravels the many layers of Raven. What he finds . . . puts everyone around them in danger.

Can anyone survive?

Tragedy has struck and now it’s a waiting game. New beginnings, so full of promise, are overshadowed by a past that is continuously haunting them. Secrets are uncovered. Lies are revealed.
Raven and Jax will fight for their lives and the ones they hold dear. Will a normal life ever be in their reach? Will anyone truly be safe, again? Too much has happened. How can anyone survive this?

Lies are shattered, leaving death and destruction in its path. To save a child, they must make a deal with the devil himself.

They had a plan: two days—get in, ask the questions, and get out. Seemed simple enough. But you know what they say about best-laid plans. Life always seems to get in the way of living.

This book contains strong language, violence, and sexual situations. Mature audiences only.

                         MY REVIEW 
  This trilogy starts off with a bang . In book one Unraveling Raven . We meet Raven and Jax, and how did they meet . Raven literally ran into him and spilt coffee all over him . That sends Jax into finding out what this mysterious raven haired beauty is really like .  
Raven is sassy and spunky that Jax really likes but there is so much more to the teacher , she has been through so much heartbreak and loss . She doesn't really trust and really wants to stay independant . Even when Jax bulldozes into her life . Then when the worst happens Jax will move heaven and earth to get her back and then keep her safe . 
  In book two DARKNESS INTO DAWN  the story continues when tragedy hits Jax and Raven fight to keep the family safe but with trouble ahead of them will they be able to keep the family safe . This book we get to see more of Jackie and Max and their relationship . Or let me say this if you think Jax and Raven needed their heads slapped . You will be really wanting to bang Jackie and Max's heads together. This book picks up right where book one left off. You see how the couples really lean on each other and the toil it is taking on the characters. You don't know if they are going to survive the onslaught of secrets that are pouring out .  When they think things are finally settling down , we are thrown into another crisis where they will actually have to make a deal with the devil himself to help one of their own . 

   In book three SHATTERED LIES 
   This is an intense book , there is so much going on in this book . Jax and Raven have grown so much . Raven has become a really strong woman who helps Jax out when he is out of control . We find so many answers from Anwen about the past and the man they call dad.  When Micheal jr needs them the most they will do anything to get what he needs, We get to see more of Bella and Micheal sr in this story. We get to see the momma bear come out in Bella to help her son. She will do anything to help her son . There are so many twists and turns in this book that wraps everything up . But will they get their happily ever afters .

  This trilogy I couldn't put down , I read the whole thing in one weekend . This trilogy revolves around one family and what it means to be a family when you are in trouble . What would they do to help you out . The characters are well written and complex . When we first meet Raven , I kind of found her to be a little bit naïve but she was also sassy and spunky , over the three books she really grew up and became a strong woman who would do anything to keep her family safe . Jax on the other hand came on like a bulldozer and you really just kind of wanted to either climb him like a spider monkey or slap him upside the head. Like any good hero he changes and you see him become the man that deserves Ravens love and guidance .  Maxwell is like Jax you either want to climb him or slap him upside the head . Just like Jax he really changes and becomes a man of great morals and values . There is only one character that really kind of bugged me . Jackie she was really kind of wishy washy when we meet her . She tended to bottle everything up and not tell anyone anything . But she did grow out of it and I did start to like her . There are so many characters in this book that are so valuable . They are diverse and complex and fit into the world of Raven and Jax perfectly . 
    This story will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotion . I am going to admit that I ugly cried through out this trilogy. Especially in book two and three. My heart broke a few times and the author then repaired it . There were moments I laughed so hard I had tears rolling down my cheeks . Labour scene with Jax and Raven never laughed so hard in my life . When you read this series I will tell you be prepared to not move for the weekend .  The books will take you on such a journey . You won't want the series to end .  So if you want a great series to read in a weekend this is the series for you , You will love Jax and the gang so much .
