And the guy I should have been with—he’s still here. He tries to take my mind off everything I’ve lost while showing me what I could have. I’m ready for a new start, to fall in love again … to do what I should have done in the first place.
Everything seems perfect.
Then the past comes walking back in. I thought I was over him, but one look and I know that’s not true. We went through too much together for those feelings to completely fade away.
When my past and present collide, how am I supposed to choose? They both love me, and I love them.
A heart will be broken … and it could be mine.

“If I had come home sooner, would I have had a chance?” he asks, sinking down in the bed until we’re eye to eye. He knows he’s making it impossible for me to skirt around the truth.
Eyes don’t easily lie to eyes.
“Yes,” I whisper. “I waited for you. Until New York, it would have been you.”
His fingers come up, gently brushing a piece of hair from my forehead. “I really fucked up with you, didn’t I?”
“Neither of us was in the right place. It wasn’t our time.”
He moves closer, brushing his thumb against my cheek. My conscience whispers but the tequila screams. “When will it be our time?”
I think about Pierce. This weekend. Everything. “It may never come, or maybe, it’s already passed.”
“I’m going to fight for you,” he declares, propping himself up on his elbow to look down at me. “I thought I could let you go if I knew it would make you happy, but after sitting alone in this apartment all weekend while you were with him, I don’t think I can do that.”
I swallow hard. “And, if you don’t win?”
“I’ve already lost, so what do I have left to lose?”
And, he’s right. He’s already lost so much that the risk is minimal.
“Pierce trusts me,” I blurt, my palms sweating against the sheets.
He leans in, kissing my cheek. “He shouldn’t trust me, not when he has the one thing I want.”
He slips out of my bed without looking back, carefully closing the bedroom door behind him. He wanted the last word, and he got it.
.Love Unspoken is book two in the Flawed Love Series. Once I read the synopsis for the first book, then actually read the book I just knew this would be another hit from Lisa De Jong. I am a HUGE When it Rains fan and this series is right up there with it. She has that ability to suck you in and once she has you in her grasp you aren’t getting out until you’ve read every single word and feel every single emotion she is going to throw at you.
At the end of Lies Unspoken I was left heartbroken. The book was just THAT good. I laughed, I cried, god did I cry and but I knew who I wanted Lila to choose. Did she make bad decisions? In my opinion a little, but I think she was so confused and was really getting parts of the story from two different directions that were incomplete. By the time she caught up to what her heart already knew, well some things are just unfixable. The things are that left Unspoken will can ultimately break your heart.
Love Unspoken picks up six months later. Lila is utterly heartbroken and missing a huge piece of her heart. She drowns herself in work, but can’t seem to let go of what once was. Working everyday with Pierce forcing her to become closer to her was both a godsend and a curse to me. My favorite man in this story was always Blake, I never swayed. Blake was it for me, hands down, without a doubt. BUT, after getting to know Pierce more, I sorta fell in love with him too. How could you not? He is sweet, caring and he really just wants to be loved. But in the back of my mind, I just wanted Blake.
When the past returns, just when you started to move on what happens? Do you continue to move forward or you do you take a leap of faith backwards because you know that is where home is? Do you break one heart to try to fix another? Can you even really go backwards?
“Love is complicated, and in its best form, it’s unspoken. It shows in the things we do, not what we say.”
This series is such a roller coaster. It’s about forgiveness, truth and love. The feels in this series are just overwhelming. You can connect to all the characters and when they hurt, you hurt. Lisa has an uncanny way of doing that to you. She makes you FEEL. Isn’t that what books are supposed to do? 5 stars for Love Unspoken!
