Book Review: Unraveled

Updated: Aug 11, 2022

Unraveled by Lauren Dane

Series Whiskey Sharp


Maybe Dolan has lived independent, free-spirited and unattached since leaving home at sixteen. Whiskey Sharp, Seattle's sexy vintage-styled barbershop and whiskey bar, gave her a job-and a reason to put down roots. Cutting hair by day, losing herself drumming in a punk rock band by night, she's got it good.

But a longtime crush that turns into a hot, edgy night with brooding and bearded Alexsei Petrov makes it a hell of a lot better. Maybe's blunt attitude and carnal smile hooked Alexsei from the start. Protecting people is part of his nature and Maybe is meant to be his...even if she doesn't know it. Yet. He can't help himself from wanting to protect and care for her.

But Maybe's fiery independent spirit means pushing back when Alexsei goes too far. Still, he's not afraid to do a little pushing of his own to get what he wants-her in his life, and in his bed, for good. Maybe's more intoxicating than all the liquor on his shelf...and he's not afraid to ride the blade's edge to bind her to him.

This beautiful, mercurial, noisy, busy creature with fire in her heart had been there, in his shop for two years. Burrowing her way into his life. Burning herself into him.


Two words: Alexsei. Petrov. After reading this book, I wanted to move to Seattle and find my own surly bearded Russian. Unraveled is not your typical story of boy meets girl and they fall in love. Unraveled is the story of what happens when you meet a person and the chemistry builds over time until both individuals are ready for one another. Maybe and Alexsei each have their own baggage that they bring to the relationship and it is the support, it is the understanding that they both have for the other person's extras that make their relationship so inspiring. Maybe is a strong, fierce, explosive female lead with a protective streak a mile wide for those she cares about while Alexsei has his own protective streak that he has to learn to keep in check when it comes to the extremely independent Maybe. Reading about these two navigating through a friendship turned relationship and family drama will inspire you to find your own Alexsei or Maybe or if you already found your person, it will remind you of how important it is to support each other through your individual and relational trials.
