Elena Reviews: Undone {City Rich #1} By Amelia Wilde

Title: Undone

{City Rich #1}

Author: Amelia Wilde

Publication Date: December 26th, 2017

Genres: Romance
She’s the match that sets the world on fire.


Chaos is terrible for business. Want to become filthy rich off classified government contracts? Stay far, far away from turmoil. One touch, and you're out.

I never courted chaos.

She came to my doorstep anyway.

Her name? Annabel Forester. Her goal? Upend everything.

She’s an irresistible disaster, as gorgeous as she is unpredictable. One day here, gone the next. I can’t trust her. I certainly can’t be with her. Getting caught with Annabel by my side will put my business on the line.

But it’s too late. I’m addicted to her wild energy, to the curves that set my mind aflame. I’ll do anything to make her mine.

Anything...even if it means I'll come undone.
*I received this book from NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own!

Undone was a very quick and enjoyable read, I'm not going to lie. But, it lacked the authenticity that would've boosted it to the top for me. It got repetitive at times and even though I found myself swooning over Annabel and Beau's romance, nothing happened to actually blow my mind. Which is wrong to expect from a New Adult novel because, truth be told, I haven't read one that I immensely enjoyed and absolutely fell in love with in a very long time. It didn't blow my mind and it definitely did not feel original. But, overall, reading it was a very pleasant experience. Nothing wrong with that. 


Annabel was a very headstrong main character and I really enjoyed getting to know her through the pages of this book. I really think we would've been great friends, if we'd actually met in real life. We can say that, she's a wandering spirit who doesn't stay in one place for long and just leaves before things have a chance to fall apart. Which isn't my preferred way of living life but, it's what she's known since the beginning of hers. Her mother's style has influenced hers greatly but, what she did not expect was being saved by a ''Mystery Man'' and falling hopelessly in love with him. 

Beau is such the typical combination of attractive and arrogant, which is pretty common in NA novels. Not a bad thing though, just to be clear. He's just your usual macho male, who falls in love with Annabel and wants to make her his. He's never felt such attraction to anyone in the past but, her wandering nature isn't the easiest to deal with. Especially when work and responsibilities put even more pressure on him and their relationship. There is this pure, unadulterated passion that you can actually feel in every single page of the book and the love between them is obvious but, will it be enough to salvage their bond?

Annabel and Beau had great chemistry from the very beginning and there's just one word to describe their romance. Instantaneous. So, I wouldn't recommend this if you're not a fan of the good, old cliche of insta-love. It's one of my guilty pleasures and a cliche I actually enjoy coming across every once in a while so, I had no problem with it. It gets a bit repetitive at times which, I've already mentioned but, it is quite enjoyable. The writing was great and I really liked the way things progressed. Nothing exciting or unpredictable happened which was sort of a bummer but, that's okay. It definitely didn't prevent me from enjoying the story itself so, that wasn't really a problem. 

The secondary characters were okay, nothing amazing or worth talking about here. I felt like their romance overshadowed everything else and not enough attention was given to their friends and families. But, it's quite obvious from the beginning that, this book is all about the swoon worthy romance of Annabel and Beau so, don't expect to get a backstory on everyone else. The plot is focused on them, their relationship and what happens when it comes close to falling apart. 

Overall, Undone was a great read that I'd definitely recommend to fans of the genre! It's very swoon worthy and fast paced so, if you're looking for a quick and easy read, this is the right one for you!
Until the next post,
