Palmer Sinclair was on the edge of happily ever after when she broke off her engagement to Brady Grant. The end of their relationship marked the beginning of a painful solitary journey for her. Though she makes places beautiful with her work as an interior designer, the rest of her life is anything but beautiful – it’s slowly pulling her under.
Brady, a contractor, is swiftly building his business into an empire. Work is a faithful companion that never lets him down like Palmer did. When he sees women now, it’s on his terms. And his terms are simple: just sex. He won’t let a woman break him again.
Palmer is barely holding it together when she and Brady are unexpectedly paired on a project after a year apart. The pull between them is stronger than ever, but the fallout from their reconnection leaves them both wondering if maybe some things are better left unsaid.

Unspoken is another beautiful and emotional story written by Brenda Rothert. I am such a fan of her other novels and was excited to get my hands on this book. These pages are laced with broken promises, emotional hardships, and the hope of a second chance at first love.
Brady and Palmer are perfect for each other. Everything during their courtship has been picture perfect. First love burns bright between the couple, but neither can control what fate will deal them. Weeks away from their wedding, the strain of unexpected events leads to their relationship’s demise. Stress, shock, and wounded pride are to blame for their rash decision to breakup. For Palmer time freezes and she immerses herself in a daily routine taking care of her family and working to make ends meet. Brady immerses himself in women to fill the void. A year later, Brady and Palmer find their paths intertwined again. They must face their past mistakes to heal and move forward in their future.
I loved this story. It was a quick read that was like an R-rated Hallmark Channel movie. Brady and Palmer are meant to be together, but the timing is never quite right. Each character must cope with their personal struggles and heal as individuals before they can commit to being a couple. I was engaged page by page following these characters. Both had changed so much over the course of a year. At the same time, their foundation and connection remained undisturbed. Sparks flew and tension was thick as Brady and Palmer sorted out their unresolved issues and decided what path their futures should take.
