Thank you to Melanie Harlow and the team at Social Butterfly PR for the advance reader copy of the latest standalone in the Cloverleigh Farm series, Unbreakable.
I am so excited to announce that this is my first Melanie Harlow review as a member of her ARC team! It is such an honour to be added to her roster, and for my first book for her to be as good as this one. I cannot wait for the many books to come.
Check out the Goodreads synopsis below…
“In hindsight, I should not have had that fifth mimosa at Breakfast with Santa.
Or the sixth, seventh, and eighth.
But my shame over the public meltdown that resulted was nothing compared to being abandoned by my husband of fifteen years for a much younger woman—and did I mention she’s pregnant?
For the sake of my children and my pride, I packed up and headed for my childhood home and the small town where I grew up. Cloverleigh Farms would be the perfect place for a fresh start.
Falling for Henry DeSantis wasn’t part of the plan.
Sure, he’s easy on the eyes and hard in the bedroom (also the hallway, the bathtub, and on top of his desk), but he’s newly divorced too, and things between us are moving so fast I’m afraid neither one of us has had enough time to heal. Not to mention the fact that I’m a single mom now—my kids have to come first.
But Henry makes me feel beautiful and sexy and wanted and strong—I haven’t felt that way in years. We understand each other, and when I’m in his arms, I’m tempted to trust again. To love again. To let myself be loved without fear.
But deep down, I’m terrified.
Is this all too much, too soon? Or am I a fool to let a second chance at happily ever after pass me by?”
Check out my more detailed thoughts below…
- Characters: The main characters of this second chance romance story are Sylvia and Henry. Sylvia was a character that I was dying to know more about. From the outside, I judged her she didn’t seem warm or kind while she was stuck in her unhappy marriage. I loved getting to know who she actually was, and cheer her on. Henry is just that perfect small-town guy, loved him.
- Setting: Cloverleigh farms is such a lovely setting. The small town farm turned inn and winery is its own character in the story. I love how this location ties the family together and keeps them together. Because of this, this story had some of the best sister heart to hearts any of the books had yet.
- Romance: A second-chance romance, after two ugly divorces what more could you want? Sylvia and Henry deserved to be happy, watching them fight for each other’s happiness.
I give Unbreakable five out of five stars.
