Micah Hudson and Jude MacMillian were both lonely teenagers. One the new kid and one the target of relentless bullying, they quickly became friends. But when friendship grew into more, the relationship was too much for either to handle. As their tenuous bond was tested, everything tumbled down, leaving them lonely once again.

A decade later, Micah is on the brink of losing his will to live. Beyond exhausted from lying to everyone, including himself, Micah thinks of the one person who knows his deepest secret. Desperate and alone, Micah makes the only decision he feels he has: he must leave. But his need for closure depends on one thing.

Can Jude make room in his Unsteady life for Micah once again?

I adored Micah Hudson and Jude MacMillian’s story in Melissa Collins’ Unsteady… this story was part friends to lovers and part second chance romance. How can it be both you ask? Well, this story is told in both men’s pov’s and in the past and present so the reader lives the beginning of their friendship and them reconnecting

This was so well done… I was sucked into both story lines and couldnt even decide which time frame I enjoyed more

As an FYI, though Micah makes an appearance in a prior book in this series this book can ABSOLUTELY be read as a standalone!

Bearing witness to Micah and Jude’s friendship becoming young love and these men reconnecting kept me glued to my kindle and engaged in the story!

I loved the interplay with Jude’s father, so many great scenes, scenes that show how Jude grew and developed, how he matured and in some instances how he was still stuck in the past .

For most of this book, you know it is coming that ughh moment is coming… yes, I dreaded it… but how it unfolded not only added to the story, it had my heart breaking for both men.

In the end, the happy Micah and Jude found warmed my heart.


About Melissa Collins

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.
