Unfaded (Faded Duet, #2)

The epic conclusion to the FADED duet... They warned me not to get too close.Too bad I didn’t listen. Enter a star’s orbit, it’ll burn you down to ashes before you know what’s happened. And he was the most beautiful star in the night sky. Singed beyond repair, I left Los Angeles behind.Left him behind. But I was kidding myself if I thought a few thousand miles of space would erase my memory. And I was plain stupid if I thought he’d let ...

    My heart is so full right now.Full of Love LongingWant Need A maelstrom of music pulsates through my veinsLyrics brimming with pain and passion dance in my cellsAnd my soul revels in the pure, unmatched beauty I can find only in Julie’s writing “I wake. I breathe. I sleep. A ghost of a girl. Not so much a life – merely an existence.” Two years ago, Felicity Wilde lost her home. For two years, she lived hidden. Without music. Without c...

    2.5 - 3 StarsOverall Opinion: What a disappointment. I really liked the first book in this duet and even rated it 4.5 stars! I was uber anxious to jump into this one, but I was sadly really disappointed. I felt like it was stupid miscommunication and stubbornness that kept the drama and angst going in this one. I actually ended up becoming frustrated with the characters, where in the first book I really enjoyed them both. I know this might sound ...

    5 “Wildewood” Stars Every. Single. Emotion. Felicity and Ryder’s second chance comes as they are forced back into each other’s orbit. And while the hurt and mistrust doesn’t fade quickly, their love outshines even the darkest corners and the worst secrets. From the very first angsty word to the final emotional scene, Wildewood’s reunion was everything I’d hoped for and more. Picking up two years after the end of Faded, Feclity and R...

    4 ★'s I absolutely loved the first book in this duet so I could not wait to read this book and gobbled it down in one day. Unfortunately for me, it didn't have quite the same zing as the first one. The first book left us hanging and this book picks up two years later. We get a little glimpse into what was going on in Ryder's life and it's not pretty. In fact, they're both pretty miserable. And this book has a whole lotta misery - aka angst - bu...

    **Unfaded generously provided in exchange for an honest review.**5 "You think this is over." StarsI thought I had a hunch of where this story was going when Part One the duet ended. All I can say now is expect the unexpected. Julie Johnson took this story somewhere far deeper than I ever saw coming in such a plausible, engaging, and emotional way. I read Unfaded from beginning to end in one sitting immersed in the lives of Wildewood and in the lo...

    I love love (big) LOVE this series. With this final installment, I'm so sad to see Felicity and Ryder's story end. These are some of my favorite books I've read by Johnson by far. "What do you feel, Felicity? When you're with me, when we're together on stage and the world boils down to just you and me and the music... what do you feel?"Everything.Past, present, future. Empty, full, complete. Pain, anger, love.I look at him and I feel everything....
  • Hms
    Great conclusion to the duet.
  • Joy Novel Thoughts
    Oh my goodness!! YOU GUYS! This book. Unfaded is EVERYTHING.I swear to you have spent half of this story pissed of at Felicity. Like, I wanted to strangle or slap a fictional character because she is just so freaking stubborn. I wanted to stop my foot and tell her no. You just need to stop! ARGH! Then Ryder, sweet sweet Ryder! I loved him so fiercely and passionately, but he as well had me needing to lay down the law and be lie look. Stubborn my ...

    The beautiful poetic conclusion to Ryder and Felicity's story. I absolutely loved, loved, loved !!! Julie Johnson wrote pure magic. Her songs need fo be released too so beautiful .
  • Flo Grugel
    Absolutely beautiful addition to the Faded Duet. Julie Johnson is quickly becoming a favourite author of mine. 5 solid stars.
  • Sarah M Smith
    Me, before starting the FADED duet: Me, in the middle of reading the FADED duet: Me, immediately after finishing the FADED duet: As soon as I flipped the final page, I scrolled back to the beginning and started re-reading. Needless to say, this was my favorite story from Julie Johnson and, so far, my top read of 2018.
  • Eleonora
    Unfaded hits all the right notes. Part two of the faded series by Julie Johnson shows the struggles of Felicity and Ryder trying to find their way to each other. The best part of a Julie Johnson novel is that her characters are always flawed and human. These are two people that make mistakes and still strive to be better. They are each other’s light in the darkness. It was great to see glimpses of characters from Julie’s The Girl duet (If you...
  • Doris
    After reading both of these books, I am giving them both 3.5 stars. The story was agreeable but within the second a few things happen that seemed rather generic. All in all it was o.k.
  • Meghana Sarathy
    Wooow. I was dying to dive into this book, right after I finished the first one and what a journey it was!!! I usually take five days to a week - my own sweet time to read a book, but I literally devoured this in three days!! It was 'un-put-downable' ( I know I've gone off the rails, making up words but that's the best way to describe just how mesmerizing this book was). It was irresistible, not because there was too much drama and thriller momen...

    “We want the struggle. The hardship. The burning glances and simmering sexual tension. The explosive potential of something that, in all likelihood, will never happen… because, on the off chance that it does… It brings the roof down.”For two years, two broken souls hung in a purgatory of regret and heartache. Without music. Without hope. Without passion. Years later, the love, secrets, and addictions that once tore them apart are the same...

    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.At the end of Faded I’d asked myself, can Julie Johnson top the Girl Duet? Will Ryder and Felicity be a more powerful couple, their struggles, their path to each other, than Katherine and Grayson? The answer is yes, at least judging by my book hangover.We return to Ryder and Felicity two years later, find out how they have matured. Some things have changed, while others have not. Felicity in pa...

    After reading Faded, I was so bummed that I had to wait a month for Unfaded, BUT it was SO worth the wait!In true Julie Johnson fashion, the incredible writing style sucked me in as much as the storyline, which is something not every author can accomplish. Her ability to write these characters in a way that lets the reader feel exactly what they’re going through is special, and finishing Unfaded left me with the usual JJ-book-hangover that come...
  • Katie
    I enjoyed this second installment of the duet, but not quite as much as the first one. Perhaps just a personal preference, but I tend to enjoy the build up of a relationship and thrill of the chase more than all the drama that follows. In Unfaded, it starts out with a jarring time lapse. I wasn't expecting it after the cliffhanger from the prior book so that took a little adjustment. As the story unfolds, I kept feeling like there was too much ba...
  • Amy Schoppman
    I truly loved this duet!! I'm already planning a reread 😉. Not going to hand out any spoilers, but I really didn't want their story to end. The character links between Felicity & Ryder's story & the Girl duet were fun (reread that series between Faded & Unfaded.... So glad I did 😍🤗). Loved the relationships between all the main characters, experiencing the changes & growth. Julie really knows how to weave an amazing story!!!! Would love ...

    Julie Johnson is a heart wrecker!Oh boy what a book! The first one ended on a sad note and then we go forward a bit in time to see where everyone ended up. Well all I will say is that it takes quite a while for our two heroes to find a middle ground and some happiness. It’s a heart rending tale that is so very real. Ms. Johnson has captured me from her very first book and she hasn’t let up yet.
  • Sarah G
    I loved this book! It was the perfect conclusion to Ryder and Felicity's story. It was written with absolute perfection. You could feel the pain from both of them. There were times where it felt like my heart was just being ripped out of my chest. Simply amazing. I really want to know about Aiden and Carly next.
  • Andrea
    This is the epic conclusion to Faded. I was lucky enough to read an early copy.The story was emotional and engaging.A wonderful ending to Ryder and Felicity’s story. We get to see the complex relationship between them as well as Felicity’s relationship with the other band members.5 Wildwood Stars!

    I love this author and all of her books! I must say this duet is by far some of her best work. The feels, the angst, the love, the hate. . . .for me the best read of 2018!!!
  • Veronika's ReaderFeeder
    It was fudging amazing!
  • Anne OK
    On the whole, I really loved this duet and especially those that make up the Wildewood group. Readers will run the spectrum of emotions -- and all those feels we all demand -- they are here for the taking. The lyrics were amazing -- probably my very favorite part of the duet. I was a bit disappointed in the ending that seemed a bit rushed and left a few unanswered questions -- and no Epilogue to console me. Still, this duet is written so well and...

    Faded Duet by Julie JohnsonBook 1: FadedBook 2: Unfaded4.5 stars!!! “Whether we’re on stage singing or a thousand miles apart… we’ll always have the music.” I adore this authors words, no matter the subject she never fails to captivate me and this duet was no different. From start to finish of both books, I couldn’t put them down. I was totally engrossed; my emotions were all over the place and my connection to these characters was ...
  • Emily
    I absolutely loved the ending to this duet. I especially love how she intermingles her characters from previous books so you can get a glimpse of all the characters we have come to love over the years. I was so sad to learn that two years had gone by between books with no music and no laughter for Felicity and Ryder.When they finally did get together for the tour you could feel the tension between all four band mates flowing from the page. I was ...

    I absolutely love everything that Julie Johnson writes! She can do no wrong! This book (series) was no exception. I loved loved loved Part one (Faded) and loved Part two (Unfaded) just as much. I don't want to say too much so I don't give anything away but you will absolutely love this book if you like romances and have a soul. :)
