Winter Donovan loves two things: her sister and her sister's ex boyfriend. She's spent her whole life doing the right thing except that one time, that night when Finn O'Malley looked hollowed out by his father's death. Then she did something very wrong that felt terribly right.
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.
I have really enjoyed all the books in the Woodlands series by Jen Fredrick till date so I was really looking forward to seeing Finn's book. He has been an interesting character since the series started and I have wanted to know his story since some time now. I am happy to say Unrequited did not disappoint and was a really good read.
Let's start with Winter. Winter has been in love with Finn since a long time. He is her sister's ex and she knows nothing can come of her attraction to him but she still loves him. I genuinely liked Winter. She was sweet and even though she was the younger sibling she always took care of her sister. I loved how protective she was and how she always wanted to help Finn.
Finn knows Winter is forbidden. He knows she had a crush on him when they were young but now Winter is all grown up and what he feels for her is very real. I loved how determined Finn was where Winter was concerned. He was always there for her, trying to be what she needed even when he had issues of his own to deal with. Finn did have his insecurities as well but he has definitely come a long way.
I loved the connection Finn and Winter shared. Yes, they had combustible chemistry but they also shared a friendship. Both Finn and Winter had things to deal with in life and all along they wanted to be with each other even if there were people trying to keep them apart. I liked how Finn and Winter both came out strong by the end of it.
The parts I liked the best about this book were of course, when we got meet the remaining crew. I loved seeing Bo and AnnMarie and Noah and Grace. I REALLY hope Adam gets his book next and I was even more intrigued by Mal. Unrequited was a good new adult read.
