A Review by Diane

Unraveled
(Book One, The Untangled Series)
by
Ivy Layne

Five, I love the Sinclair brothers, Stars!!!

*****

Winters Family look out!!  The Sinclairs are taking over and not a moment too soon!!  Honestly, I have been in “Winters Withdrawal” ever since Ivy Layne ended her Winters Family Saga this summer with The Counterfeit Billionaire.  I’ve been wandering around, lost, wondering what will fill this “Winters’ void.”  Well now I know….it’s The Untangled Series which focuses on the Sinclair Family and their elite and upper crust worldwide security company.  Longtime friends of the Winters Family, we also have not lost touch with this beloved family.  I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely relieved!!

If you are a fan of Ivy Layne, you first met the Sinclairs back in 2015 when she was writing her Alpha Billionaire Club series (under her pen name Alexa Wilder) and through that series we got to know the Las Vegas branch of Sinclair Security.  Lots of intrigue, lots of hot steamy, bubbling over in true excess Las Vegas style sex, we started to know some of the Sinclair family members.  Then they spilled over into Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaire series and we began to see how closely tied this family was to the Winters Family.  Now that they have their own series, wowy zowy!!!!! is this family in the thick of their own true mystery.  Another one that has me hooked wondering what is going on!!!  And we’re only on Book One!!!

Unraveled deals with Evers Sinclair and Summer Winters (yup, there’s that name again!!), a long forgotten, second cousin of the Winters Family.  Evers has been tied up in knots over Summer since he first met her at his brother Axel’s wedding to Emma in the Temptation Trap.  Evers has been assigned to figure out the connection between Summer’s hippy, shady, shyster father, Smokey Winters and their “assumed dead” father and patriarch of the Sinclair Family, Maxwell Sinclair.  Maxwell is/was (we don’t know if he’s dead or not) a sinister man with dealings so far on the “dark side” and associations with such unseemly people (one of them being William Davis, a dark figure tied to the murders of Olivia and Hugh Winters and Anna and James Winters), you’re not sure how this man could be related to the upstanding brothers (and his sons) of the Sinclair Family.  Anyway, long story, short, Evers was supposed to be watching Summer to get to her father…..not take her to bed and fall for her. 

And Summer…..that poor girl.  She’s struggled her whole life to figure out who she really is.  With an irresponsible father who made her promise to never contact the Winters Family, she’s worked hard to have her own life and a successful career.  And then this hot, handsome Evers Sinclair enters her life at the marriage of her best friend Emma, and she’s a goner for Evers.  But they’ve got this little problem.  She’s really an “assignment” to Evers Sinclair.

But what a tangled (or should I say Unraveled) web we weave????  There is so much more to this book than Evers and Summer’s love story with spicy and quick witted banter and hot and steamy between the sheets sexy romance!  So much more!  There’s Ivy’s charismatic writing, her incredible character development, her intricate plot development, her clever skill in weaving a mystery filled with suspense.  And much, much more to come.  Lots of questions to be answered, a mystery to be solved, brothers to find happiness.  I think it’s safe to say, there will be lots more to tell with the Sinclair Brothers and I for one, am happily and anxiously waiting for the next one to be told. 

Ivy Layne has had her nose stuck in a book since she first learned to decipher the English language. Sometime in her early teens, she stumbled across her first Romance, and the die was cast. Though she pretended to pay attention to her creative writing professors, she dreamed of writing steamy romance instead of literary fiction. These days, she’s neck deep in alpha heroes and the smart, sexy women who love them.

Married to her very own alpha hero (who rubs her back after a long day of typing, but also leaves his socks on the floor). Ivy lives in the mountains of North Carolina where she and her other half are having a blast raising two energetic little boys. Aside from her family, Ivy’s greatest loves are coffee and chocolate, preferably together.
