Review: Unleashed by Sophie Jordan

Review: Unleashed by Sophie Jordan

Shortly before I started reading Unleashed, the second book in Sophie Jordan’s duology, I read a review on Goodreads in which the reviewer wrote that while she enjoyed this book, she missed the absence of the romance from the first book.
