As a fan of New Adult novels, I have read many and some are alright, other's are good and then you get the one's that fall into the category of awesome reads and Unethical by Jennifer Blackwood is one of those. At first , many may think that this book is another one of those college students/professor romances due to the title of Unethical. However, this is not one of those novels. The title is taken from the main college class in the book "Intro to Medical Ethics 101'. Two years ago , Payton Cooper had a loving family and boyfriend and then tragedy struck and tipped her family upside down and tore them apart. Her father Dr. Evan Cooper ended up in jail and she ran away from her boyfriend to start a new life at Drexler University studying Pre-Med using her mother's maiden name as her own. Payton Cooper became Payton Daniels - a clean slate where no-one knew her past. That is until she takes Medical Ethics and it seems her father is the class example of "What not to aspire too" and Blake - her ex-boyfriend also happens to be in the class. How long can Payton keep up appearances ? Has fate given her another chance at love with Blake ? Can Blake help Payton to move forth and forgive her father ? What will happen though when her past is revealed to the medical board ? Will she lose her chance at becoming a Doctor and a Medical Student because of the choice her parents made without her ?
Find out in this awesome book , that everyone should add to their to-read list "Unethical" by Jennifer Blackwood.
Review: Variables of Love - MK Schiller - September 2014
Firstly, I want to say how much I loved the cover and the inside pages of this book and also at the start of each chapter with the person whose POV it was - the name in the loveheart was a great touch and a very innovative and creative idea. Secondly, this book is another one to prove that hot and sexy love novels are out and geeky love is in as Variables of Love stars two young adults in a Statistics class - one is an Economics Major and the other is a Maths Major. I loved this book as it brought together the geekiness and romance of two people who believe they aren't good enough but don't realise how amazing they both are. It also shows readers that love , no matter how amazing it is - it's not always a perfect and easy ride , that there is bound to be obstacles and giant ones at that along the way. Nobody said that true love was ever going to be easy. The main characters are Meena - an indian girl who has planned her future to include an arranged marriage , Ethan whose parents are divorced and is mother is the famous Dr. Love , Raj - an Indian boy who is in fact gay but scared to come out of the closet as it is viewed as a terrible thing in the indian culture , Rachel whose father is a pastor of a church and Alex who is jewish. What will happen when these groups of people fall in love with each other, but know deep down that it's never going to last because of all the factors and differences involved ? Can they live in the present or will they push to make it a forever instead of a just now ?
If you are looking for a Geeky Romantic New Adult , then this is the book for you as you will love it as much as I did. Not only was it an amazing story, but the pages and book layout was ah-mazing and so totally awesome.

Sonya Loveday, first and foremost is a reader, an avid one. It is of that love that brought her to the
realization that this was the answer to the nagging persistent feeling that ‘there’s got to be something more.

Daulton Bishop's life is calculated. Everything he expects of life and everything life expects of him is detailed out in exact order. Or at least it is until that summer changed it all. Until his one last adventure before embarking on his career at his father’s law firm. Until he wanders into the Saltvande Rose bed and breakfast in Stadil, Denmark. Until he meets Lene. Lene Kirkegaard is everything he's not. Easygoing and wrapped up in the fullness of life. They have a whirlwind romance during the last two weeks of his trip, promising to write each other as he returns home. And they do write each other—until life gets in the way and letters from Stadil stop coming. He loses hope, his mind still eternally plagued with thoughts of the beautiful blond Dane, until the day the letters start coming again. After a year of falling in love over script, Daulton decides to return to where he left his heart. But what he finds at the Saltvande Rose isn't what he expects. With deception running thick on the coast of Denmark, will the letters from Stadil remain treasured tokens of a love forged or will they drown in the North Sea?
I’m twenty four years old. I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside of Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns and riding in trucks. I’ve been married to my handsome redneck husband for a year and we are parents to our chocolate fur baby, Bear. No kiddo’s yet! I am completely and utterly obsessed with country music, you will constantly find me stalking iTunes. If you don’t find me on iTunes, you’ll find me on Netflix because I am a self proclaimed movie junkie. Yes, that means that I quote them constantly in daily conversation and my characters do too! You couldn’t keep me away from a good action movie if you tried. I’m also a planning nut. I love to plan parties, events, trips – you name it! I don’t know if that’s considered a real hobby, but it is for me.
We were fortunate enough to travel a lot as a family growing up, and I think that helped spark my love of reading. I’m half Viking, my mom is Danish, and her entire side of the family still lives in Denmark. We’d visit them almost once a year, every year and it’s a nine hour flight. That’s a lot of uninterrupted time to read (or in my parent’s case, entertain four children – Yikes!). Somewhere along the way my love of reading, became a love of writing. I wrote short stories when I was younger, and although I majored in Business Management at college, I took as many English electives I could get my hands on.
During the day I work at my family construction company wearing a variety of different hats and at night, I write! I had never thought about writing books before, but after a few suggestions that I should try, I decided to give it a go. I loved it instantly! Having always been a creative person, it felt amazing to harness all that energy and use it to tell a story. Now, quite frankly it’s all I can think about, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m grateful to have developed my love of reading into a passion for writing. You’ll be seeing many more books from me in the future!
I love my husband of 11 years and sweet kids. My passions include reading, writing, graphic design, and shopping! I absolutely love social media and the power of how it connects people all over the world. You can usually find me easily on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Goodreads!
