I finished reading Unleashed (Uninvited #2) by Sophie Jordan tonight.
Unleashed, the romantic, high-stakes sequel to New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan's Uninvited, is perfect for fans of James Patterson's Confessions of a Murder Suspect.
Davy has spent the last few months trying to come to terms with the fact that she tested positive for the kill gene HTS (also known as Homicidal Tendency Syndrome). She swore she would not let it change her, and that her DNA did not define her . . . but then she killed a man.
Now on the run, Davy must decide whether she'll be ruled by the kill gene or if she'll follow her heart and fight for her right to live free. But with her own potential for violence lying right beneath the surface, Davy doesn't even know if she can trust herself.
I really enjoyed the first book, Uninvited, so I was eager to read this next book. And while it interested me, I didn't like it as much as the first one.
I don't feel that Davy was a kick-butt in this one as she was in the first one. And that's okay I guess. I still liked her. And I liked her new love interest, Caden. I thought he was a pretty stand-up guy, especially when we find out his secret. But I'm not sure I buy their relationship. I feel like her feelings for Caden came on pretty quickly. Then again, I think I felt that way about Sean in the first book. So maybe that's just her personality. :)
I still had some questions though. Just how did this gene come about? And how did they discover it? I also feel that the ending that deals with this kill gene wrapped up too quickly. I don't want to give too much away, but I didn't really buy that either.
Overall I enjoyed it, just not with the intrigue and interest that I had with the first one.
I gave this book a rating of 3/5.
