As she struggles to balance her life with Cain and her busy career she realizes she must make a choice. Who will she choose or has the choice already been made for her?

I want to start out saying that I’m grouping these six books as two. The reason is because, each book is written in novelette or novella length. Besides, the set of books 1-3 is titled Unspoken and the set of books 4-6 is titled Unseen. That said, because it is in a boxset, it made sense to do the reviews in one post. So, forgive me for all of the text.

I actually liked the Unspoken trilogy better than the Unseen trilogy. Unspoken not only introduces the main characters, it has a stronger mystery involved. Though it was fairly easy to see where the book was going, I did like the tension between Cain and Jennifer. I liked the events that lead up to the end and I liked the reveal.

Unseen’s romance wasn’t as strong. Cain and Jennifer are together now, but there is a stalker still going on. That was actually taken care of early on in the story.  The main mystery was interesting and I did want to know more, but I feel it could have had more action. The romance too, that was medium.

In all, the boxset itself wasn’t bad. The books are quick to read and I am interested in more of Beck’s work. It isn’t a bad read for a person just wanting to pass the time quickly.
