She always ran to me.

Until he showed up.


For years, I sheltered her under my wing.

For years, I kept her safe.

For years, I loved her without bounds.

But my best friend, he stole my little lamb.


Yet, I’m the one sitting in a cell now.

Not the unkind son of a bitch thief.

Not long, Pretty.

Not long.

    Wow, what an rollercoaster! Unspoken is a short prequel to the full-length, Hey Pretty. And I can’t wait to read it!
    Unspoken is a darker than dark, twisted beyond twisted story. And it’s worth the read, believe me! You don’t want to miss this piece of the puzzle.

    This author has always had a special way with words. She can weave a story so elegantly that you have no problem believing it. If she said that the grass was pink, the ocean yellow and the sun purple, it would make perfect sense. She is that amazing!
    And it would definitely make sense if Salvatore Raniero was a part of it πŸ˜‰

    This book is all kinds of dark, sick, twisted goodness! If you have read Kailee’s books then you know what you are in for. This story picks up after the She/He series and is an intense look into the mind of a nutcase that is Martin “Red” Blum. With Sal taking the case on, he is looking for answers but what he gets is the actions of a psychopath. And just when you think you may feel bad and understand…BAM more crazy! We get this whole different side of Sal’s role as agent unlike his Dom and the Juliet world which is so amazing and you can just see his growth. And as is pure Kailee, she throws us another gut twister and ends with our hearts and minds breaking! This is a must read in the series and I am anxiously waiting for Hey Pretty!

    Kailee Samuels is a phenomenal writer and in Unspoken (Hey Pretty Prequel), she has outdone herself again. This book will keep you on your toes. With her genre-blended writing style you get a dose of reality, because not everything is perfect.

    Unspoken is a really intense dark thriller in which you get Sal’s and Red’s point of view. You’ll learned more about the relationship of Red and Natalie. When Red tells about his life story I couldn’t help feel bad for him even though he’s a psychopath, a rapist and a murderer. Then I’ll remember that he wants to see Sal’s demise and stop feeling bad for him. Give it a try is a great book that would get you enthralled and wishing you had (Hey Pretty) to start reading as soon as you finish this one. Someone once told me that when the book is great, it’ll pass days or weeks and you’ll still be thinking about it and let me assure you I’m obsessed with this prequel.

    Kailee Samuels has added another brilliantly written chapter to the Juliet World with Unspoken. In this chapter she delves into the minds of two different men, one who fights for good & the other who is all evil. This is a psychological thrill unlike many of the Juliet books yet is still captivating & intense with it many twists & turn. Both men are set out to win the mind battle but only one will walk away with the answers needed to move forward with the task at hand. This story as well as all other Juliet stories are worth reading…….. beware though these characters are highly addictive (in my opinion)!!!

    Wow! Kailee Samuels’ prequel of UNSPOKEN is another addictive, intriguing, captivating, twisted, and intense psychological thriller that totally blew me away–one that really messes with my heart AND my mind! I still remember every scene, every emotion, and every appallment.

    This story is about Salvatore (Sal) Raniero and Martin (Red) Blum. A compelling storyline, mind-games, obsession, and secrets–this story will have you on the edge of your seat. This is definitely one of the most mentally and emotionally taxing reading. It was the most unpredictable story I have ever read. This story is not for the faint at heart. If you like an easy love story or an easy hero/heroine, run far, far away from this story because it is dark and twisted, but oh sooo good!!

    Kailee Samuels’ books are dark and dirty, but they keep the chills, twists, and surprises coming as the characters confront a dark and elusive evil. This story is going to stay with me for a while. Phew! I’m brushing the sweat off of my forehead. Well done Kailee Samuels! Well done indeed! I can’t wait for the next book, Hey Pretty, to find out what happens next. The scenes are well written, fast-paced and flow smoothly from one scene to the next while the strong charismatic characters draw readers in and refuse to let go. This is a MUST read for sure. This book will pique your interest and draw you in from the beginning to the very end.

    Bam! What just happened to me? I feel like a tornado just swept me off my feet, spun me around again and again only to spit me out, picking up the pieces of the puzzle that is that story . I’m in awe of Kailee Reese Samuels’ thorough style and the intricate world she created.

    Unspoken is a Hey Pretty prequek and comes after the She/He duet. Although it can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend to get familiar with Salvatore Raniero’s and Red’s books first, to have a little background on the two main characters.

    Red has been locked up in a Sibyl’s compound since his arrest, when he was shot by Sal. Answers about what happened in He/She are needed and Sal accepted Red’s case, the challenge of interrogating and profiling him, of getting in his head.

    Follows a battle of wills between the two men, a psychological cat and mouse game, where we don’t really know who holds the cards. From revelations to revelations, the web of lies and semi-truths is masterly handled, exploring and dissecting the minds of the protagonists. The author takes us into the dark secrets, the seriously and chillingly disturbing upbringing of Red. To say it was terrifying and sickening would put it mildly!

    Sal’s professionalism commands respect, I recognised the charming boy he was and absolutely loved the tortured expert he became.

    Unspoken outright enthralled me, I couldn’t put it down and I have been thinking about it since I’m finished. With this author, there always is a bigger picture, I can’t wait to put my hands on Hey Pretty to learn more!!!

    PS: There is a warning at the beginning of the book, trust me, it’s not here to be pretty, you should really take it into consideration before starting that psychological thriller.
