Lauren Blakely’s Unzipped ARC Review

I want to thank Lauren Blakely and InkSlingerPR for the advance e-copy of Unzipped. 

From Goodreads: Wanted: Dating coach to help hot nerd win back the woman of his dreams…
Picture this – I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I’m good and ready this time around. After all, if you’re going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops. 
There’s only one little problem. 
My college girlfriend isn’t the one who shows up when I play my “I’ll do anything to win you back” tune. 
The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore. But she’ll help me win her back. Anything for romance, anything for a guy so willing to go big for love. And that’s what I want at first. Until I get to know my new “romance coach” and discover she’s funny, clever, and keeps me on my toes. And boy, do I ever need that. 
Now I don’t want to win anyone else’s heart. I want the woman who’s been helping me all along. 

Trouble is – she thinks I’m in love with someone else, and when we take off on a road trip, everything I think I know about women is about to be unzipped and turned inside out. 
He’s the last person I ever expected to pop into my life, but he might be exactly what I need to save the thing that matters most to me. All I have to do is not fall for him.”

Below I break down my review into the components I value most in my reading experience:

  • Characters: Finley and Tom were both unique among all of Lauren’s previous characters. Finley is a TV comedy writer, which made for her to be funny and such an enjoyable protagonist. Tom’s journey over the course of the story was well developed and it was great to see him grow so much.
  • World/Setting: The book takes place all over California. There’s a road trip sequence, which is great. 
  • Pacing: No complaints, always good.
  • Romance (yay or nay?):  This romance was unique, just like the characters are. I really liked how it built and how for the characters it was a lot about understanding their past relationship mistakes. Once they began to understand their faults, their relationship only grew further.
