RELEASE & REVIEW – UNSTEADY BY MELISSA COLLINSUnsteady (On Solid Ground, #3) by Melissa Collins
Buy on Amazon

3.5-4 Stars.

I was late to the game reading on Higher Ground and originally meeting Micah, so I didn't have to waist as long to get his story but I knew there had to be one helluva back story to this invasive character we met briefly.

I am still kinda uncertain on how I feel once I finished this book, it took me on a roller coaster of emotions that's for sure, but there is a few issues I found that is stopping me from loving it that way I felt like I should.

For one, I am not a big fan of miscommunication or in these guys sake, just not talking communicating about what really matters in general, so much wasted time for them both just because they didn't actually talk about stuff.

The second, was the issue of Micah's wife and son - I am not one for putting spoilers in reviews so I won't go in to too much detail over this but I found this whole situation made me dislike Micah and his relationship with Jude regardless of what was going on with his home life.

The third, I feel like the last 20% to 25% was rushed and had many loose ends. Like how Delilah's parents are so unwelcoming when he first arrives at the hospital but we don't get to see no real understanding formed between them all before the end of the book, also I don't get how Delilah was so anti-gay to all of sudden being all hunky dory. I may of missed something, but I think I would of liked seeing a meeting between Micah, Jude and Delilah and some sort of agreement being met, considering she was one of the main sources of angst for Micah.

Also would of liked to see Dax and Micah seeing eachother again, didn't have to be a full on conversation, just a nod across a park, just to give Dax that piece of mind after Micah ran off from him...

I loved the happily ever after, and loved Melissa's writing as per, I just wasn't really feeling this one.


Happy Release Day!

exhausted from lying to everyone, including himself, Micah thinks of the one
person who knows his deepest secret. Desperate and alone, Micah makes the
only decision he feels he has: he must leave. But his need for closure
depends on one thing.

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.
