Two searching hearts. One night to discover the passion of a lifetime. Dex is determined to show Alicia the pleasure she’s been denied, but can she let go of her heartache and take a risk on the unknown? Find out in the sizzling new novella from USA Today bestselling author, Melody Grace!

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

Unrequited is a short hot, steamy novella introducing Melody Grace's new series The Callahans.  It gives you a quick glimpse of the night Dex and Alicia meet and the undeniable chemistry that is shared between them.  I could not read this story fast enough and although it left me grasping and panting for the rest of their story.  I feel content and happy that I will get to reconnect and read more of their passionate budding romance. 

Dex is the alpha rock star returning to the spotlight after being missed by his adoring fans for over a year.  He is deeply bothered by his past and has secluded himself from the business.  What happened in his past that is now haunting this talented beautiful man and keeping him from his future?  The only place Dex finds freedom is in his music.  It has always been the one thing that grounds him and keeps him sane.

Alicia is a successful business woman in love with someone that does not reciprocate her feelings.  A man that has never seen the woman right in front of him that loves him silently.  Wait for the day that he sees her has cost her especially now.  Alicia knows that he will never be hers and she needs to let go.  She buries herself in her work and chooses to pine over the one that is lost to her. 

This all changes when Alicia and Dex meet in the back alley of a club where he is about to perform and she is attending a party with a group friends.  They are drawn to each other and both drown in a kiss that demands more.  He is bewitched by her innocence and she is seduced by his dark presence and sexuality.  Sparks fly between them and Alicia finds herself throwing all her rules and caution to the wind.  She decides to take a chance and walk on the wild side with Dex for the night.  Dex feels the connection between them and knows that he cannot let her walk away from him, she grounds him like his music.

The journey is just beginning for the couple and they both will have to make tough decisions.  Will Alicia overcome her feelings for the stranger that holds her heart?  Is Dex the one who can help her heal her heart?  Can Alicia help Dex keep the darkness that pulls at him constantly from consuming him?
