Finn can’t stop thinking about Winter and the night and he’ll do anything to make her a permanent part of his life, even if it means separating Winter from the only family she has.
Their love was supposed to be unrequited but one grief stricken guy and one girl with too big of a heart results in disastrous consequences.

Review by Kristin M ~ 5 out of 5 stars!
“I thought blood was what made a family, but it isn’t. It’s love. My parents had it for me. My sister does. And I…I have it for you.”
Unrequited Love is Finn O’Malley and Winter Donovan’s book. This book was absolutely AMAZING!!
Winter Donovan has been in love with Finn O’Malley since her older sister, Ivy, dated him in high school. She never told anyone, but yet everyone knew of her crush. The Donovan sisters have been dealt a crappy hand in life and are now finding their way on their own, both together and separately. Winter is scared of moving on and finding happiness because every happiness she has ever had has been taken away from her.
“Having unrequited feelings are safe. It’s when you share them that shit gets real.”
Finn O’Malley is the strong, silent type. His family has been torn apart because of the adultery of his mother and father both. And now his father is dead. He is now left to pick up the pieces and finish his father’s project. He wants to help his mom but doesn’t know how. He also needs to find himself in the mess of all the chaos. He has been sleeping and drinking his way through his feelings, until Winter.
Can Winter overcome the fact that Ivy had Finn first? Can Finn prove to Winter that she will always be the first wife? The most important person to him? Can they each over come their own fears and get the happy ending they both deserve?
Unrequited is book 4 in the Woodlands series and I loved it just the same as the rest of the series. Jen Frederick definitely knows what she is doing. You get all of the feels with her books and this book is no different. I highly recommend it! 5 out of 5 stars!!
“Are you humming?” Bo asked.
I looked up from pulling on the dingiest carpet I’d seen in months. This house I’d picked up was vile, worse than usual. Bo had suggested it was a meth factory, given the needles, rotten egg smell, and burnt patches on the walls and flooring. It could have been, or it might just have been an ordinary addict’s house, but there was shit everywhere.
If I was humming, I didn’t realize it, but I was in a decent mood. I figured once I got Winter to just sit and talk with me, we’d work it out. That was something worth humming about.
I just shrugged and went back to work. “Just trying to block out the god-awful music you choose to play. You’ve been up north here for almost a year. Can’t you play anything but country songs?”
“I could.” Bo paused to toss a handful of staples in the trash. “But I know it annoys the hell out of you. And that makes the music sound that much sweeter.”
“Too bad you don’t know shit all about constructing a house and you still have to hang on my dick until you can get it right.”
“Which is why I play music you hate. It fits our dysfunctional relationship.”
“I thought you were going to therapy to fix your problems.”
“If by ‘therapy’ you mean having a ton of awesome sex with my girlfriend, then yes, I’m in therapy all night and random times during the day.” I snorted but wisely said nothing. “But speaking of therapy,” Bo continued. My response was a loud groan that I hoped would be hint enough that I didn’t want to talk about whatever it was that followed. Bo ignored me. “How’s your mom?”
“Well, she texted that she got up and had coffee today, so I count that as a win.” I reached down to tug harder on the carpet. Did they glue it down instead of just stapling the edges?
“Mal says ‘Paradise lies under the feet of your mother.'”
That made me stop. I gaped at Bo. He threw up his hands, one still holding a crowbar he was using to pull up the tacking strips, the long thin lumber pieces that held the carpet on the edges of the room.
“What the hell does that mean?”
“Apparently it means if you don’t make your momma happy, you ain’t gonna be happy.”
“If I knew what would make her happy, I’d do it,” I replied.
“I suck at this comforting thing.” He pulled off his hat and scratched his head. “But maybe you outta talk to someone else?”
“Like Lana?” I grunted. “No thanks. Between her and Mal, it sounds like I should be taking my mother on a date.”
