Book Review – Unbreakable – Rebecca Shea

I will love you forever. Forever. Don’t you ever forget that.

Unbreakable is the story of Jess and Gabe. Jess was raised by a single father after her mother died. But to cope with losing his wife, her father became a workaholic. So she was actually raised by her neighbours, the Garcias. The Garcias have a son Gabe and a daughter Ava. Jess has had a crush on Gabe for as long as she can remember. Turns out the feeling is mutual. The two embark on a beautiful relationship until tragedy strikes and dents their otherwise unbreakable relationship.

I went into this book expecting to cry my heart out. It was described as ‘one of those books.’ Unfortunately, I didn’t cry. I say unfortunately because I was actually in the mood for an angsty, super emotional read and I thought this would be it. Not that the story wasn’t sad, and certainly not because my heart is made of stone, but I don’t know. It just didn’t tap into that emotional part of me I guess.

What I loved about this book was how easily it flowed. It’s a beautiful Contemporary Romance debut, with nice characters and a hero you will love. I actually found myself at 80% quite fast. I however felt impartial about most of it. I expected it to give me the feeling I got when I read Real by Katy Evans or Unteachable by Leah Raeder. I expected ‘chills’. I now know not to go in with that much expectation.

Again while I loved the hero and felt for him, I didn’t connect much with the story. I can’t say any bad thing about this book. I really can’t. I’ve seen that a lot of people love it and the reviews are great. It just might be a classic case of ‘It’s me, not you.’

I will end by saying that it’s a really sweet book. Fans of Contemporary Romance, maybe even New Adult, will love it. I just needed a bit extra.

3 stars.
