Review: Unbreakable by Abby Reynolds

This is a stand alone novel. It is not a cliffhanger. And it is the first novel in the Forehead Kisses Series.

Can there be too many pieces to piece back together?

This is a question Keira faces every day. It’s impossible for her to go anywhere unaccompanied by her cousin, the only person who knows what happened on that horrific night a year ago. The guilt and pain weigh her down every day. Unwilling to open up to anyone and give someone a chance, she lives in solitude.

For her, that’s the only way to live.

Liam struggles with his own demons. After losing someone who means the world to him, he combats his anger and pain on a daily basis. He dives into violence and sex, losing himself more and more. But as soon as he meets Keira, he recognizes the same pain he suffers every day. And he pursues her, wanting to connect to someone who understands.

Keira can’t put herself back together, and neither can Liam. But can they do it together?


My 4 star review

Keira’s whole word came tumbling down all in one night. She had something horrible happen to her and then was told that her parents died while they were out looking for her. Now with all the guilt that she keeps inside, she will not open up to anyone. The only person she lets in is her cousin, Scott.

Liam is this hot MMA fighter. He is delisicous and has lots of money for such a young 20ish year old guy. He is still dealing with the death of his sister and has so much anger in him, that he goes into the ring and whoops and I mean whoops the crap out of his opponents. Not only does he turn to violence for relief, he also turns to sex. But he is a gentleman about it by always being up front with the woman he gets in bed with. All it’s sex to him, nothing else, nothing more, just sex. He does it to release the anger, even if it’s just to release it for only a little while.

Liam ends up meeting Keira’s cousin Scott, who invites him to come play some basketball. Now, Scott’s number one goal is to fix Keira. So he has her come along with them to play them to play basketball or at least watch, plus he doesn’t want to let her out of his sights so soon either. Yes, Scott is a little overprotective, but he is the only one that knows what happened. Keira knows that and though its irritating, she finds it comforting as well, that she at least has one person to talk to. At the basketball court Keira ignites Liam’s interest without even wanting to and now all Liam wants is her. He wants to know more about the girl who looks the other way and flinches when he is around.

Unbreakable is more than a love story with tortured pasts. This book is about love, letting go, forgiveness, and friendship. I was sad when this book ended because Abby Reynolds did a fabulous job sucking me in. I wanted more of Liam and Keira and I hope to get lots more of them. I loved how Liam took it slow with Keira and worked his ass off for her to let him in and give him a try. That is the most beautiful, rare, and precious part of their story.

Abby Reynolds I have no idea how you do what you do, but I love it. Never stop,!!! PLEASE!!!
