Love burns hotter the second time around… 

Two years ago, the medical world was shaken by scandal, and Payton Daniels's family was at the center of it. The second she graduated, Payton left everything behind―her high school sweetheart, her family, and the controversy surrounding her mother's death—and hid within the anonymity of college. But Payton’s ex, Blake Hiller, hasn't forgiven her for leaving, and when he enrolls in the same medical ethics class, she panics. She can’t run the risk of him telling everyone who she really is. As if being at the same university isn’t enough, both Blake and Payton land the same internship. Forced together, their passion for each other reignites, but when Payton is asked to testify in her father’s high-profile trial, she must choose between risking her acceptance into medical school to help her father, and losing every connection to her past—including the only guy she’s ever loved.

Unethical is a very controversy, and fitting with the current events of Brittany Maynard. For those that are not familiar, Brittany Maynard was the Brain Cancer patient that invoked the Death with Dignity Act, resulting in her death earlier this month. Unethical is a very creative story that offers a love story wrapped with this very
controversial topic. Payton's family is forever changed after the death of her Mother. The decision of her mother to end her struggles with Breast Cancer comes at a time that this is not an lawfully acceptable act. With Payton's Father being a physician this plays on the very sensitive debate of physician ethics; resulting in his being charged with the murder of his wife after assisting her with suicide. Payton and Blake have had a very rocky past. This is one of those situations where it seems life got in the way. Overcome with grief Payton's reaction to flee is an reasonable action, but it has cost her years of loneliness. These characters are perfect for one another, and this is ultimate second chance romance. Unethical is an entertaining romance wrapped with this highly debatable topic. With this content expect a deep read that is not only enjoyable, but also reflecting. Readers will find themselves plagued with the "what if", and naturally pick apart their own opinions and values with this story.
