Blurbs from Goodreads:
Port Fare, New York, has fallen into the clutches of true evil. The Dreser brothers have arrived with a scheme to increase drug sales in the area by whatever means possible. Seth Prescott is part of MET (Mobile Enforcement Teams) a branch of the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). He's been assigned to work undercover at Port Fare High, and things aren't going very well, until senior Maggie Brown enters the equation. He's harbored a secret crush on her from day one, and now that she is in the center of the case, he's trying to stay clear and objective while walking the line between business and unrequited love.
Maggie is truly the poster child for Heroin Chic, complete with jutting bones and dark-ringed eyes, but is she an addict, or is there another reason for her appearance? She struggles with her feelings for Seth, fearing he is just another person who will eventually let her down, as everyone in her life has done thus far.
Maggie has spent her life caring for her alcoholic mother. A task that has left her heavily burdened and alone. Before long, her mother's health takes a turn for the worst, sending Maggie's life into a tale-spin.
While Seth works relentlessly to inject fear into the dealers and flush them out into the open, Maggie fights to stay alive as the hunt turns deadly.
Seth and Maggie's romantic journey is one of humor, heartbreak, and self-discovery.
Wow! It has been quite some time since I've come across such an enjoyable and engrossing romance story. Unlovable is simply amazing and downright unputdownable. The characters are strong, solid and very relatable.
The pace of the story and progression of relationship between Maggie and Seth were awesome. I'm mighty glad it isn't the cliche plot of falling deeply in love at first sight. Booker, Cole and Dwayne were great characters.
The romance is really awwwhhhh cupcakes sweet. Gammon resolved the problems and conflicts faced by the characters really well. It gives readers some insight on what to do if faced with similar situations. This is a really awesome and recommended read.
I'm glad I purchased it. I got mine at Smashwords at only $1.99 and i'm sure it wouldn't hurt those who're thinking of reading it to support the author by purchasing this.
I'm really looking forward to the next two sequels, Unbelievable and Unbearable.
