[Book Tour] Review & Giveaway: Unrequited by Emily Shaffer


Release Date: 09/23/14
Swoon Romance
Summary from Goodreads:
In the town of Belle Ridge there are doctors, lawyers and teachers... but there is only one vampire. Will Leighton has become an expert in making a life for himself amongst the unsuspecting small-town inhabitants, as the high school history teacher. He has spent hundreds of years crafting an identity and routine that make him feel almost human, but he is always missing that important final element, love.

Ashton Wallace is beautiful, smart, and angry. She was forced into an eternal existence, and now her family has moved her away from everything and everyone she knows. In Belle Ridge she is supposed to finish high school and start her life again, but how do you make plans for the next several centuries?

Will has never met another of his kind, and is immediately intrigued by Ashton. He longs to show her that the perceived vampire lifestyle, so popular in storybooks, is far from reality...but will she let him be a friend and guide in this new existence? Can Ashton accept Will into her life, or will she be led astray by a dark stranger with whom she shares an unknown connection?
Available now:

In Unrequited, the vampires are different especially their weaknesses. I liked the concept of the vampires that the author has written but there's more to Unrequited. The title Unrequited is aptly named.

I like reading Will's point of view not so much of Ashton. For some reason I feel like my blood pressure's getting high every time I've read her thoughts. I know that her becoming a vampire is hard for her to accept but I wished that she would do something about and not think of doing mundane things. Plus, there's the situation with Will and wherein Will falls in love with her and she's reluctant to reciprocate her feelings. What I hate most about Unrequited is that there's another vampire who's fighting for her affections and her situation with Will is not even concluded yet. And then towards the ending she has to pick either one of them which is still a mystery to me as well. The ending of Unrequited is a cliffhanger. I wished that there was a warning that the ending is a cliffhanger and I didn't even know it was part of a series since there's no mention of it. But I will want to read the next book but if only to find out whom she ends up with.
