review || THE UNFORGETTABLE EX by Miranda P. Charles

MPC Romance Publishing | February 26, 2016 | Contmporary Romance
Captured by Love, book 5


He breaks the heart of the woman he loves to keep her safe.

Private detective Gavin Redford has a very dangerous enemy intent on revenge. When that criminal threatens the life of any woman he falls in love with, he has no choice but to break up with Natasha Garrett—his best friend’s sister and the woman who means the world to him. No question about it, he’d rather lose her than put her in danger. But he hopes with all his heart that the thug is caught soon, because it’s killing him to watch Natasha move on.

She’s determined to forget the man who rejected her.

Natasha Garrett has only ever been in love once—with her brother’s best friend. Unfortunately, Gavin Redford has decided he doesn’t want her after all. So she will move on and forget about him. Even if her heart and body still yearns for him. Even if her mind cannot stop thinking about him. Because what choice does she have? She cannot make Gavin give his heart to her… or can she?

{ about miranda p. charles } .

Miranda P. Charles is the author of more than a dozen steamy and stirring contemporary romance novels.

She prefers to spend her time in front of her laptop, putting into words the love stories that play in her head. Don't get her started with reading a great book, though, because she has the tendency to not put it down until she gets to the last page.

She does have a life outside of books. Mostly, that consists of bonding with family and friends or going on romantic trips with her awesome husband (who, thankfully, puts up with her hermit-like daily routine). Oh, yeah, there's also the housework. But she really wishes someone else could do that for her so she could get back to her books!

She lives in one of the suburbs in the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia.

{ review } .

This series has been so incredibly sweet -- and now the earlier couples are starting to expect the next generation. I sense bets on due dates soon...

Anywho, we still have friends left to marry off, and this time, our opening bets have some of the men betting on themselves -- which, if you've read the other books, you'll know that this is simply a rarity. Not only are men betting on themselves, but they're the two men that Natasha is surrounded by.

Five years ago, her brother's best friend, Gavin, and she had a 10 month relationship -- slightly underwraps. But then another woman in Gavin's life went missing, and Tash was put aside. Five years, and she still hasn't quite moved on from Gavin.

Now, she's at this picnic and the man she's been casually dating, Leo, bets on himself. Of course, this gives Tash indigestion, because her heart still belongs to Gavin. But then Gavin bets on himself, and her heart simply breaks.

Let me point something out to you -- of this series, the only other 5-star I gave was to Undercover Playboy -- aka, Carter's book, aka Natasha's brother and her bff's book. Further aka, Gavin's bff and the only other person who knows what Gavin's life has been like the last five years. While not the same story, there are similar aspects in the two story lines, and whatever it is that MPC put in the water over there for these two books, it simply worked.

I truly enjoyed every moment of Gavin and Tash's journey -- mainly because Gavin had his reasons for walking away five years ago and they simply paint him as this big, protective, alpha male -- my favorite type of hero. But the reason for him safely putting Natasha aside all those years ago becomes threatened now -- and Gavin fights harder to protect the one he loves.

These stories have been so incredibly fun, and I can't wait to continue watching these friends not only fall, but for the fallen ones to begin the next love of their happily ever afters.
