Summary: (Spoilers, highlight to view)
Since coming to Crossroads, Oklahoma, former outcast Aden Stone has been living the good life. Never mind that one of his best friends is a werewolf, his girlfriend is a vampire princess who hungers for his blood, and he's supposed to be crowned Vampire King—while still a human! Well, kind of.

With four—oops, three now—human souls living inside his head, Aden has always been "different" himself. These souls can time-travel, raise the dead, possess another's mind and, his least favorite these days, tell the future.

The forecast for Aden? A knife through the heart.

Because a war is brewing between the creatures of the dark, and Aden is somehow at the center of it all. But he isn't about to lie down and accept his destiny without a fight. Not when his new friends have his back, not when Victoria has risked her own future to be with him, and not when he has a reason to live for the first time in his life….
Review: This book was a HUGE disappointment. I love, love, LOVE the first in this series. I thought it was original, and I love how it focuses more on the plot than the romance.

This book didn't do that.

If I had to read ONE MORE TIME about someone cleaning/tickling/exploring another person's TONSILS I was going to die. This book was definitely ROMANCE with a little paranormal. Which made me very sad. Granted, it was still an interesting story, despite the fact that there was some serious sequel-bloat. It took FOREVER for anything interesting to happen, and then it wrapped up super-quick.

All in all, I love the first book so much that I'll definitely read (and purchase) the third. I hope it goes back to the style of the first, because Unraveled was almost just like every other paranormal book that's out currently. Not bad, but nothing special.
