“This man…he wasn’t the only one unhinged. I sensed the darkness and danger that lurked inside of him, but it didn’t scare me. In fact, I felt just the opposite. I was drawn to him. So much so that I knew my life was irrevocably changed from moment forward” ~ Payton
Unraveling is book 2 of the Unhinged series by Timberlyn Scott. I fell in love with Sebastian and Payton in Unhinged and this is the continuation and delves deeper into their story. Buckle up, strap yourself in because you are about to go on one hell of a ride.
Sebastian Trovato has hard life. He is very smart, knows what he wants and is ready to move forward and get out of the grasps of Conrad. See, Sebastian is the brains of the operation but few know that. Conrad is the controlling jerk of a father; I don’t even think father suits him. He is more like a controlling money hungry jerk, that is more concerned about the next buck and he clearly doesn’t give a ratsass about Sebastian. Payton works for Conrad and he has his sights set to keep her busy, so busy thinking he can keep her away from Sebastian now that he knows they have been together.
Well Conrad I got news for you buddy, no matter what you are trying to do…Sebastian has other plans. Payton doesn’t know all of Sebastian’s secrets, we still don’t know all of them but one thing is clear. He will NOT give Payton up no matter what, she’s his Angel. He has fallen for Payton, and has only ever loved one person in his life and she left him unwillingly. We start to see what makes Sebastian tick, but we don’t know all of it…yet.
“It had been iffy there for a while, my anger had been a firestorm burning out of control, but just as I suspected, the moment I looked at her, I had calmed down” ~Sebastian
In a trip to Vegas, pieces start to fall together. Of course Sebastian was not invited, Conrad had plans to fill Payton’s head with god knows what, but we knew he wouldn’t stay away, from here starts a chain of events that take you even deeper into the story.
The pull between Sebastian and Payton is magnetic. When they are together they both feel grounded, not lost, lonely and floating in space. I love the relationship they have. In this book you’ll get to know more of Aaliyah and her relationship with Sebastian. I honestly like her her a lot. She may be uppity but she’s grounded and I think she has a good heart. We also see more of Sebastian’s best friends Lief and Toby. I love how she keeps letting us see more and more into the characters backgrounds and I feel like I am really getting to know them.
I can’t wait for the next book. I was screaming at the end, literally. Book 3 can’t come quick enough, because I need more Sebastian and I need him NOW. Towards the end of this book, things get tense and I promise it will leave you hanging onto the edge of your seat.
Five Stars to Timberlyn for this new series. This is way different then Nicole Edwards other books, her alter ego popped out and its shining bright. You will definitely want to read this series, it is different but so deliciously good!

a tour?” I asked, pressing my lips to the soft skin of her neck.
she said, sounding a little breathless.
I released her so I could show her around. It wasn’t that I wanted to give her
a grand tour of the house I would be moving out of in the near future, but it
was that or toss her over my shoulder and carry her to my bedroom. I wasn’t a
patient man, but with Payton, I knew I had to make a concession. The last thing
I wanted to do was scare her off.
we made our way to the kitchen. I didn’t use the area often, mainly because I
wasn’t much of a cook and living alone, it just wasn’t a place I spent a lot of
time. The stainless steel appliances were state of the art and picked out by my
stepmother. They looked good with the modern white cabinets and black granite
countertops, also designed by Lauren. The decorations that sat on the tops of
the counters weren’t my idea either, but since the housekeeper dusted and
cleaned once a week, I didn’t bother to toss them into a cabinet. Like I said,
this was the room I probably spent the least amount of time in.
in your refrigerator?” Payton asked, grinning at me before releasing my hand.
“Are you hungry?” I asked, confused by her question.
“Nope. But what’s in the
refrigerator tells a lot about a person.”
“That right?” I’d never heard that
I wasn’t sure the few things in my refrigerator were going to say a lot about
since I didn’t do my own grocery shopping either. “Orange juice, yogurt, milk,
cheese… water.” Payton glanced back at me, her waist length dark hair sliding
over her shoulder and falling down her back. Her smile was radiant and I knew
right then that I wanted to see her in my kitchen more often. Not so that she
could cook for me or any sexist bullshit like that, just because she made the
space that much more welcoming.
does that say about me?” I asked, hopping up onto the counter and watching her.
“It says you’re boring, Sebastian.”
I chuckled, continuing to watch her rummage
through the contents. “Boring, huh?” “No beer?”
don’t drink that much. Usually only when I go out.” I hadn’t bothered to
mention to Payton that I had a highly addictive personality which was the
reason I avoided certain things. I didn’t drink much, rarely at home; I didn’t
smoke, although I’d stupidly done so to be cool when I was younger. I’d never
tried drugs either. My drug of choice was adrenaline which was why I raced. I
released the pent up anger by beating the shit out of the heavy bag in my
weight room, knowing that if I didn’t, the undercurrent would eventually invade
my life and turn me into someone I didn’t want to look at in the mirror each
wanted to know just what was going through her head, but I didn’t get to ask
because she was on a roll.
you eat cereal?” Payton closed the refrigerator door and opened the freezer.
Would that make me less boring?”
At least you’ve got ice cream.”
do?” I really had no idea.
she said, grinning widely. “Imagine that.”
have to remember to add chocolate to the grocery list,” I told her, remembering
the first time I took her out for ice cream.
do that. Get chocolate syrup while you’re at it.”
my ass hopped right down off that counter so damn fast it was a wonder I didn’t
face plant on the gray travertine floor. “Alrighty, then. Time to see another
room.” I grabbed her hand and tugged her into the formal living room, shifting
uncomfortably as my jeans became just a little too tight.
