Unrefined by Nicole Dykes (Goodreads Author)

Unrefined by Nicole Dykes

Life can fuck you up. I know that better than anyone. Everything can be taken away from you in an instant. I found a family in The Monroes. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to protect them.
And then she walks into my life.
She’s a drop dead gorgeous, tall, leggy blonde that goes against everything I stand for. She’s elegant and classy, REFINED. I’m dirty, foul-mouthed, and covered in tattoos. One other thing she’s married to a very powerful, senator who happens to be one of my most important clients.

He’s the total opposite of everything I’ve ever known. He’s massive, has tattoos, speaks his mind and may be the most handsome man I have ever seen. He has me rethinking everything I thought was normal, and he is making me second guess everything I thought I knew.
He told me that cars have the ability to free the trapped. Now I believe not only that but that he may be the key to finding out who I am.

*Unrefined is a New Adult Romance novel that contains mature content and is not suitable for anyone under 18.

***Although, Unrefined is technically a part of the Monroe Series, it can be read as a standalone. Totally different POV’s 😉

The Prologue or the 1st Chapter of a book is THE reflection – SO it must capture my attention from page 1 I will continue a few more chapters to give the Book a fair chance to change my mind!

SO Herewith my review!


I am not going to do a lengthy review as the Synopsis says it all!

Sheryl Crow – My Favorite Mistake




This is my first book of the Monroe series, so I can say that this book do not need to be read to follow the series! I loved it and hope to read the rest of the series soon what I can say the book blew my mind.

What I loved most about the book is the lesson → THAT family is there for you no matter what, and forgive your mistakes be supportive of your decision and not force you to do things you do not want to do!

Type of Characters and my choices according to pictures :

Jackson Garret aka Jax – Protective, sexy as hell and a to die for Hero!


Charlotte – I will describe her as complex, she does all the right things for the right reasons, always tried to please her family and friends UNTIL Jax!


Relationship development


Independent Love Song – Scarlet

Jax meets Charlotte at a charity event, PROBLEM SHE’s Married, and bigger problem not to a regular man to Senator Nicholas Warner! For an anniversary gift, Nicholas asks Jax to build a custom car for Charlotte.

Charlotte realize that her life is not what she always thought it to be – PERFECT!

Jax makes her see herself in a different light, Jax never actually had a woman for a friend so he has some new found challenges as well on top of Charlotte being married

Chapter Development

Ashford & Simpson – Solid

Charlotte is super sweet, and developed into a perfect sculpture her parents created, a perfect child and later a perfect wife, always doing what was expected of her and what needed to be done to keep everyone happy except herself!

Jax is the complete opposite of everything Charlotte did not to want in her life or needed in her life until she met him. She was a beauty queen with THE perfect life. Jax made her realize what is true friendship and how it feels to live to be loved by friends, really live and not just to exist.

This is truly a story that makes you realize complete opposites attract each other, the hero and heroine will defeat the evil lurking in the background, and Jax is just that a perfect hero!

To the Senator Nicholas Warner you are an ass! Sorry I had to get that out of my system
