Blog Tour: Unspoken Words by H.P. Davenport


•••••••••UNSPOKEN WORDS •••••••

Two lives…as close to perfect as they can be.
Camryn Townsend has everything she’s always dreamed of…an amazing family, supportive friends, and the perfect job. Everything a girl could want. Or is it? A trip back to her childhood home threatens to unravel her web of perfection.
Her problem…she’s in love with her best friend and she’s too scared to sacrifice their friendship for a love she’s always wanted.
Jamie Banks’ life is the epitome of perfection. His company is thriving, his band is on the cusp of stardom, and the girl he loves is returning home.
His problem…the girl he loves has been his best friend for as long as he can remember and he’s not sure he’s ready to sacrifice his best friend for a lover. Pursuing a relationship with the possibility of losing her has him second-guessing everything he knows.
Unspoken words are the only thing standing in their way.

Review by Jen Hagen 

Camryn and Jamie were next-door neighbors and childhood friends.  Jamie’s best friend is Camryn’s brother.  Camryn left to attend college out of the area and eventually found herself in a job in California – on the other side of the continent as compared to New York where her family and Jamie reside.  Camryn has come home for a few months, and Jamie decides it’s time to bear his soul. 
I never had the courage to tell her how I feel.  Risking our friendship was always my main concern.  It was never something I had on my agenda, but things have changed.  I can’t suffer in silence anymore, I have to figure out a way to let Camryn know how I feel.  I have been holding my emotions in for years.  I can’t keep this fa├žade up.  

Everybody around Camryn and Jamie knew this was inevitable and are finally glad that these two have finally decided to put aside their fears and make something out of their reciprocated desires.  Even the brother gives his blessing!  Things are going great until 50%.  This is when something I felt was unnecessarily graphic came into play and essentially took the story down a few notches in my rating.  

Camryn is going to need time and space to recover from this life-changing moment.  Jamie is great when it comes to giving her what she asks, but how long can he keep giving her the distance that she needs.

“Don’t give up on me, Jamie, please.”  A faint whisper embraces me.
“Never…I won’t ever give up on you, I promise.  I’ll be right here, waiting until you’re ready to let me back in.”  A hot tear rolls down my face.  I pray that I sense a crack in her fragile control and she lets me in to take care of her soon. 

Best friends to lovers…best friends with her brother…alternating points of view between male and female— these are all good qualities present in the book.

He leans down and moves his mouth over mine, devouring its
softness. Slowly, I lift my arms around his neck, running my hands through his
thick hair. I tug on his hair, not wanting this kiss to end.
When he pulls back, he leaves my
mouth burning with fire. 

With a wicked grin on his face, he points to the shower. “I have to get out of
here before I have my way with you. Your brother is out there waiting. Go get a
shower, cool off, do what you have to do to calm yourself down. But if I hear
moaning, I am gonna be all over you whether your brother is here or not.”
I chuckle knowing what he is
insinuating. Before he can move, I bite his lower lip, sucking it into my
mouth. I release his bottom lip and place a soft kiss on it. “Mr. Banks, I will
have you know, if I plan on moaning, it would be because you made me, it won’t
be self-induced.”
I push myself off the counter,
walking over to turn on the shower. When I look over my shoulder Jamie is
standing there, his jaw clenched, his eyes slightly narrowed.
I am going to give him a show and
drive him crazy. He thought he was cute when we were younger when he jumped
naked into the pool at my birthday party, I am going to have a little fun with
him today.
I pull the hem of tank top up and over my head, leaving me
standing there topless. My back is facing Jamie, so he can’t see my breasts. I
slowly peel my sleep shorts off of my body, one leg at a time and toss them in
his direction. When I turn around his muscle flicks angrily in his jaw. I fix
my eyes on his. “Do you like what you see, Mr. Banks?” Knowing that he is going
to lose his shit, I quickly get in the shower and shut the curtain behind me.
Peeking around the shower curtain, I
squeal at the intrusion into my personal space as Jamie smirks at me saying so
quietly that I’m not entirely sure I heard him, “You think you’re funny, don’t
you? Two can play at this game. You better pray the next time I see you naked,
your brother isn’t in the next room. Cause if he is, he will hear what you
sound like when I’m making you come with my mouth.” He reaches out and pauses
mid-air as he’s about to stroke my breast. Instinctively, I lean toward his
touch wanting his hand there, wanting him in here, knowing my brother is
literally steps away from me grabbing him and pulling him into the shower with
me. Inhaling a breath, never breaking eye contact with him, I moan, quiet
enough that no one hears but he heard. Smirking at me with lust-filled eyes, he
pulls his hand back, retreating the hand that was so close to the water beading
on my nipple that my skin feels his absence and he never even touched me.
And he stalks out of the bathroom.
Just like that.
Holy. Shit. I need to make this a
cold shower after what he just said to me, after how he almost touched me. A
smile spreads across my face as I hear the bathroom door shut. One for Cami,
One for Jamie.
Why did I invite my brother with us
