book blurb

It was supposed to be a lot of things…but not this.

After surviving the long and excruciating recruitment process, I thought I would end up working for Madonna or the CIA at the very least.

Boy, was I wrong.

Even in my wildest dreams I couldn’t have imagined what I was in for. What my heart was in for.

I couldn’t have possibly fathomed the lifestyle, the responsibility, how much it would take out of me, the inner battles, and mostly, the emotional whirlwind.

I could never have imagined, prepared myself for, or anticipated…

Him.

It was supposed to be a job. Just a temporary job. Just a few months. Just a short stop before the journey I was about to take to follow my dream.

It was supposed to be a lot of things…but not this.

Little did I know it would be the one event that would shape me, would change me, would bring on such a shift in the balance of my world.

Would bring…
Him.
Would bring…

Them.
Both.
Into my life.

Ms Ehrlich’s descriptive writing cannot be disputed. She’s set the story in an ambience which couldn’t have fitted the title better since to my way of thinking, Unplugged has two meaning. The musical side and the emotional one. Her two leading characters who come from completely different backgrounds do unplug their feelings; slow-burning feelings which opened up my curiosity. The build-up per se is steadily paced; however, I would have liked a little more angst.

Despite finding Tyler Lee Adams a tad standoffish, my opinion of him changed once I got to know him better. The spoilt Rockstar vibe I had was unfounded since he showed me he was on the ball and always concerned for the goings on in his household. Actually, I thought his problem was no-one really understood the true him. He’s backstory isn’t such a tragic one although it saddened me to discover how his career started and how he’d been treated by his peers. Understandably, he’d protected his son. How he did it was perhaps erroneous, but he’s deadset on making up for lost time.

“Is there anything you don’t like about it?”

“When people think they know me. . . or own me.” “Or put me in a pigeon-hole. . . “

Motivated by past events, Ivi’s determination to carry out plans for the future are noble, exciting and a chance of a lifetime. Ah, but the card of life dealt out to her is unexpected. Now then, it certainly seemed to me she’d landed a cushy number working as an au pair for Tyler’s son, a single father. And I had no doubt she’d make it work seeing as she’s so easy to get on with and so willing.  There’s a down-to-earth honest-to-goodness about her that drew me to her instantly. In other words, she could do no wrong for me or the motley crew who hung around with her boss. Lovable guys too.

“Thanks for taking such good care of him. I don’t know what I would’ve done without you.”

“It’s my absolute pleasure.” “I’m more than a little in love with your boy.”

Who won the show had to be Jeremy! He’s old beyond his years and a walking encyclopaedia! What an adorable child and what great comebacks he has. The whole situation is overbearing for such a young child and this is where Ivi steps in. She’ll do her utmost to make sure he finds his place in new surroundings.

“I asked you what you wanted, not what you needed.”

“I’m still trying to figure that one out. Recently, my wishes have been changing.”

What I liked more about this story was Tyler and Ivi’s prime concern for Jeremy. Regardless of their attraction which is indisputable from the moment they set eyes on each other, they always put him first. The ending left me with a bitter-sweet taste in my mouth. It had to happen, I didn’t want it to but a contract is a contract with all the its clauses. Hopefully, I won’t need to wait too long to find out if these two are going to have the ending they deserve in the second book in this duet.

“It’s the unplugged version of you that I’ve been falling for.”
