Unbreakable is a story that definitely can allure lot of readers. Eye catching cover, great sounding premise and several positive reviews, really work magic. Rebbeca Shea’s novel is something that totally goes with the New Adult flow. Unfortunately, for a reader who have read so many new adult contemporaries, Unbreakable just vanishes from mind only a couple of minutes after you finish. It’s not bad book, I defintely won’t start bitching about, but it is not something worth my bows or gratidute. I guess, Unbreakable is just meh kind of novel.
I haven’t got anything I haven’t seen before. Every aspect of Shea’s novel is something that I’ve read earlier. If I haven’t got my hands on so many fantastic new adult romance novels before this one, I would love this story.
Gabe & Jess know each other from the time they were children. Jess is the best friend of Gabe’s little sister and person that is like a part of family. So when both of them start to have deeper feelings for each other they don’t act on it, because of the fear of losing friendship and closure. But one summer things got pretty much heated and their attraction as well as love can’t be denied.
First half is sweet heart warming romance. Everything is beautiful, from time to time mystical, glittery unicorn will show along side with some perky rainbows. Romance is bloosoming, characters are likeable enough, sex pretty hot too, but… it was too much touchy feely for me! It was kind of… boring, I guess? How good life could be before something will fuck this up. Which of course will happen.
After that things are little bit dramatic. We have heart breaking moments, gritty and raw situations and start of dreaded love triangle. Some time in the story we’ll meet London, sexy police officer, who will want Jess for himself. And all this love triangle yada, yada.
I can’t say it’s not enjoyable book, it is just so not worth remembering. After few moments I couldn’t remember some plot twists or name of characters, which I suppose mean that I wasn’t into it at all. Lately I want something mind blowing and totally unique and Unbreakable was not this book.
Overall, people who don’t mind sugarcoated pretty little romance stories, will really enjoy Shea’s work. Readers who have had his/her share of old scheme in new adult, will be disappointed. Three stars feel like merciful rating for the book, that easily will be forgotten.
