Unravel by Calia Read : Review

Six months ago, I was happy. I was simply Naomi Carradine. 

One month ago, I was admitted into a psych ward. 

Yesterday, Lachlan visited me. Kissed me. And told me that I’m starting to lose my mind. 

Hours later, Max haunted my thoughts, reminding me I’m not crazy and that he needs my help. 

A few minutes ago, I drifted further from reality, trying to unravel the past. 

And now...everyone thinks I’m insane. But, I know he's real, and I know he needs me. 

Do you believe me?

Ever wondered what it would be like in a psychiatric facility?  Ever read that book that is so twisted you wonder if the author is alright?  How about this...have you ever found yourself so intrigued by something that would normally make you shudder and reach for lollipops and gumdrops?

Calia gives us all of this in her newest release Unravel.

Naomi Carradine...for all intents and purposes is normal.  She's got her best friend, her boyfriend, and a lifestyle that most young women dream of.  Until she meets Max.  The sexy and intriguing entrepreneur sets about turning her life upside down in a single summer.

Returning home to be with her best friend, Lana, Naomi meets Max as the host of a party attended strictly to keep up appearances for Lana's family.  She's choosing to forget about the boy she fell in love with as a child, the one who loves her completely.  She's living her life on her fear, no judgment, no hesitations.

Until the noises.  Max drops Naomi at Lana's family home, but she doesn't enter the house.  A disturbance from the barn grabs her attention.  And more than Max, what she witnesses unravels her belief in her perfect reality.  Everything really is not what it seems, and Naomi loses her mind trying to identify the truth and save herself, and her friend, from the pain she only recently learned exists in life.

 Calia has always been an incredible story teller.  I do believe she's reached a new level with this one, though.   Your grasping at straws with each page, just trying to figure out what is really going on, who all these people are to each other, what role they will play in the end.  The more you try to understand, the more you want to commit yourself and sit right next to Naomi...telling your own story of how her life left you in shambles.

But what better way to keep that from happening than to ask the author herself?  Go ahead and post your questions below.  Calia will be stopping by to answer a few questions later today, and I'll be giving an e-copy of the book to a few lucky people.  Make it good...Calia's only answering her favorites ;)
