Calia Read breaks the mold in this explosive novel that grabs hold and doesn’t let go until the shocking truth is revealed.
One kiss can change everything.
One month ago I was admitted to a psych ward. Yesterday, Lachlan told me I’m losing my mind. But I know what I saw. Will you believe me?
Behind the walls of a mental hospital, Naomi Carradine feels her world breaking to pieces. She’s starting to believe all the voices questioning her sanity. Only visitors from the outside world keep her tethered to reality. But deep in her thoughts, Naomi is haunted by memories of a golden summer that twisted into a waking nightmare of obsessive love and fractured truths.
Just home from college, Naomi moves in with her best friend, Lana, the daughter of a Virginia senator. At a lavish party thrown by Lana’s father, Naomi meets a sexy stockbroker named Max and finds herself unable to resist his charms. One fiery kiss and she’s going back for more, beginning a terrifying descent. Having witnessed the unspeakable, Naomi has only one hope of escape: unraveling the devastating secrets of her past.
Unravel is intended for mature audiences.

This book sucked me in and didn't let me out for my whole 8 hour flight!!!! Very nicely written, couldn't stop reading. What a story. Loved it!!!!
Wow! This was insane!!!!
What a story. I don't even know what to say. It was so amazing, so painful, so crazy... I couldn't help it, I cried at the end, and on multiple occasions throughout the story. Naomi and Lana, Lana and Naomi, Lachlan and Max; this book drained me, really made think. I have to be honest, I didn't get what the hell was going on until the end, when the story 'UNRAVEL'.
I highly recommend it! This book deserves 5 stars, and there's no doubt about that!
I enjoyed unravelling the truth in this cleverly written psyche story.
Wow! The beginning started off intense. Is it HOT in here? I love scenes like this one with Max when two people have no time to think or breathe.They are feeling everything in the moment. I'm right there with them.
This is a story about your mind, body, and heart coming together at times. A story about control and power. A story about truth and being noticed. A lot is encompassed in this story. It will make you feel angry, sad, happy, and lustful.
The story bounces back and forth from the present to the past. Little hints are revealed as to why Naomi is in the medical institute.
I love these psyche mind trick stories. It has many twist and turns. You are constantly questioning what you are reading waiting for the truth to be revealed. I'm guessing along the way. Picking up the pieces and clues of the story being payed out.
Once the secret is revealed I am rewarded with the closure to what I had already discovered along the way. I saw through the darkness and found the light in the truth.
What a wonderful journey. Too bad it's over. I are up every word and held on to every word. I decoded every word and made sense of the trickery.
