Synopsis 
Lacey Garrett was about to be free. Her fiance had run off with her business, her savings, and stuck her with his cat. What had she done to stop him? Nothing.

But she’d just been beamed to another planet. Here, she wasn’t an ordinary Earthwoman; she was part of a team. Here she could help a man like the roguish starship captain Zain Masters. Here, she could face krudo, interplanetary defense systems, and galaxy-wide conspiracies. She could even defeat the monstrous Bobzillas that looked like her ex-fiance! For Zain, Lacey could do anything — because his kisses, his touch, everything about him felt like destiny. And that destiny was the true Lacey Garrett . . .

MY REVIEW
Summary:
 Lacey, has recently recovered from being cheated by her fiancee, where he ran with everything she had, apart from his cat, of course. Then she is suddenly beamed onto another planet, and thinks ok…it can’t get worse than this….however she is very wrong in that theory. Lacey is surprised to find that she is needed to help Zain Masters, who is stranded on a planet, with not much hope of getting his ship fixed before he gets killed in different painful ways. Lacey is determined to stay and assist Zain, she knows how much he needs her help right now and is willing to face whatever it takes, because there is passion building between them that she doesn’t want to deny, one that she craves and aches for, a passion that will lead to her destiny with the one man who holds her heart.

The Hero (Zain Masters)
Zain, once worked for a galactic company but when his partner is killed and he is blamed for it, he has been on the run ever since, a drifter, a loner, one that has had to stay away from his family and friends, and has decided never to involve himself with a woman again…that is until he meets Lacey, and his body and heart burns for hers, knowing he won’t be able to resist her or her efforts in saving him…

The Heroine (Lacey Garrett)
 Lacey, has just started to heal from her ex fiancee who took everything that she built, and didn’t even fight for it back. However when she meets Zain, and is entrenched with the dangers of his world, there is a part of her that awakens, boldly, and wants to fight for her own destiny, one that will involve Zain in her life…forever

My Thoughts 
Unleashed is the third installment in the UN Forgettable series…and I did overall enjoy Unleashed but it wasn’t my favorite, probably my least favorite of the series. There were some amazing moments where I was enthralled to say the least in part of the story, captivated by the suspense and the romance…however it took a while for me to really get into the story, but when I did, I definitely had a good ride. There was also a taste for unrelenting adventure and sizzling romance that had me at the edge of my seat at times. Although I felt like at times there was something missing, it was a enjoyable read!

Synopsis
Tess MacKenzie was a successful singer/songwriter. Then Cohl Travers picked her up.

Of course, it wasn’t exactly how she was used to being “picked up.” Cohl dropped down from outer space with his robot Pitz and zapped her–so that they could save his father by acquiring a magical amulet, he said. All Tess had to do–supposedly–was sing some strange song on some ancient mystical planet they still had to find. But her abductor was hiding something else, something besides the gorgeous body beneath his space suit. Something pretty darn bizarre was going on, and Tess vowed that she’d uncover everything. Very soon, it wouldn’t be just her or an ancient artifact but some powerful feelings: By the end of this crazy ride, everything was going to be .. .UNEARTHED

MY REVIEW
Summary:
Tess MacKenzie, on the verge of a successful career as a singer, is suddenly kidnapped by Cohl Travers. Tess’s whole concept of her world, is about to change when she realizes that she just hasn’t been kidnapped to another state or country, but to another galaxy. Cohl, needs Tess to help him get his father freed, from those that have ransomed him. His father is the king and leader of their world, and Cohl is willing to do anything to free him, even kidnap a innocent woman to get what he needs. However Cohl didn’t expect to fall in love along the way of this adventure that both he and Tess will embark on, and he will find out what finding one’s true love is really like….not what he expected but he refuses to give it up once he has found it.

The Hero (Cohl Travers)
Cohl, ran away from his home many years ago., but upon hearing a frantic message from his mother concerning his father he rushed home, never expecting that his life would be forever changed after that. He knows that despite he and his father’s difference of opinions, he still loves him and would do anything to rescue him. But when he discovers Tess, his world changes and is unseated from his known reality of life, into a world where he can’t think of being separated from Tess….

The Heroine (Tess MacKenzie)
 Tess, after losing her parents and not seeing much of her siblings, has finally been living her dream, to be a singer, doing something she passionately loves. Tess is furious when a gorgeous , yet insane man kidnaps her but wants to take her on a adventure that she would never have even dreamed of, but despite all that she finds that she is falling for Cohl, and is willing to stand by him in anything…..

My Thoughts 
 Unearthed is the first in the UN forgettable series, and I truly enjoyed Cohl and Tess’s story here. Although I wasn’t as involved in the book as I was Unraveled, and it took me some time to get really into it, it still had a exciting plot and fascinating elements that unraveled a beautiful story. I have always had a fascination with the Science Fiction Genre, so this type of background to the story really intrigued me. What I think I loved most about this book was how at first Tess is against the whole mission, but then through a turn of events changes her mind and is willing to do everything she can to aid Cohl, and rescue. I found her to be full of courage and willing to give up everything to stand by the man she loves. Cohl, is more of a sacrificing hero character, he loves Tess, but doesn’t want her to give up everything to be with him…but the ending was magical and I just loved this story and especially all the characters involved. So if your looking for a story that will rock you to your very toes…then I would recommend Unearthed!!!

Synopsis

To continue her father’s life’s quest, Tru Van Dye had to leave the insular colony of Majj scientists where she was raised. She had to find Rayce Coburne. Yet the virtual-reality program she acquired to gird herself against the man’s touch, his innuendoes, his alien maleness Was for naught–his presence overwhelmed her. With Rayce, all Tru’s clever
plans, her control, everything she knew was aiming .. .

that’s how Rayce Coburne felt. He’d tried to give” up treasure acquisition. It wasn’t the danger that put him off; he despised dealing with icy customers like the Majj. And Tru Van Dye was worse than the usual–a prissy woman who would blackmail him with all his hopes and dreams. Still, while she was smarter than he, there was a way he could fight back: a kiss. A kiss a day was the perfect strategy. Unless the spinning he felt inside was Tru unwrapping his heart.

MY REVIEW
Summary 
Tru leaves the only home she has ever known to continue in her father’s work, to find the ultimate historic treasure known to the galaxy. However she must go ask Rayce’s help, a man who hates the Majj, scientists and part of the institute that she is from. When Tru comes to Rayce for his assistance at first he hates the idea despite the amount of funds he would be paid, he despises the Majj and their selfish views, but knowing how much he could use the money, he agrees with one condition upon Tru, that she agrees to a kiss every day. At first Tru is petrified at the thought, not having positive experiences with intimacy, but agrees knowing that she has no choice. So Tru and Rayce begin a journey of alifetime and as the passion between them escalates to a burning flame, and even though they tell themselves that its only temporary, they each wonder if they could one another up?


The Hero (Rayce Coburne)
Rayce,  has always had a bitterness that leans towards the Majj scientists, believing that their greed is the result of his sister dying a horrible death, and him feeling helpless knowing that there was nothing that he could do for her. Then Tru comes to him in search of a treasure that could be the means in which he would never struggle in finances and be free from debtors. However there is something much more important he finds in this journey with Tru, and that is finally being able to heal from past wound and finding a woman that could be his mate…

The Heroine (Tru Van Dye)
Tru, has always dedicated her life to her fathers work and being a part of the Majj Institute, thinking they could do no wrong. But when she meets up with Rayce, and they journey together in search of a treasure, she learns many truths about herself and everyone she knows that will change her life. Tru is full of courage, passion and aches to find a place to call ‘home’, not knowing that with Rayce she could find everything she could ever need.

My Thoughts 
When I first heard of this author it was from a fellow author and I think the review might of been this book as well, and I just loved the sound of it I went to check to see if they had this author at the library and I was thrilled that they did so I got a couple of the books in the series. I have to say that I have missed reading sci fi romance and I am so glad that I started reading Unraveled. What we have in this story is a tale of two people that may seem so different from each other in the beginning but as the story progresses we see that they are more than perfect for each other. Tru is innocent and filled with a inner passion that just wants to get out but has been treated badly in the past and has a hard time with trust. Rayce, stills feels the deep loss of his sister and hates Majj, and at first he despises Tru, but he starts to see that she is nothing like them, for she is tender and caring . I loved this tender picture that C.J. Barry has created here, and such a wonderful read filled with adventure, romance and witty repatore that will leave you thirsty for more!!! A Treasure!

My Favorite Quote 
She felt Coburne’s hand on her arms just as she exited the salon. Effortlessly, he spun her around to face him and pinned her to the rough outside wall of the saloon. Before she could protest, his mouth covered hers with a scorching, staggering kiss that made her knees buckle. No man had ever kissed her that way-all wicked and decadent-putting his whole being into one, sole purpose. So, this was how it felt to be seduced by a rogue. No wonder women fell at his feet.
