Review ~ Unbreakable (Forehead Kisses, #1) by Abby Reynolds

Unbreakable (Forehead Kisses, #1)ebook downloaded for free via Amazon

Release Date: June 6th 2014

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 Opinion

This read surprised me. I downloaded it because I saw it free in Amazon, and that meant I only really skimmed the blurb--it was more of an impulse purchase. However, I'm definitely glad I one-clicked.

Unbreakable was a moving, touching, an endearing story. It held my attention the whole way through so well that I finished it in one sitting. I thought the plot was crafted well, especially with the past chapters spread out through the beginning. They gave a good understanding of everything going in and even though they weren't easy to read they made you feel for Kiera.

Moreover, I thought the author did a really good job with Kiera's character. I found her emotions believable and how she reacted to people made my heart bleed for her. I also liked that the author took time to develop the relationship with Liam--this isn't an insta-love book. He won me over a little more with every kind or patient gesture he performed for Kiera. He was a good mix of strong, manly, vulnerable, and had a sweet side. He also has a past that links with Kiera so he's an easy character to connect with and like.

There were a few grammatical errors and typos in this book that had me re-reading a few sentences every now and then to make sure I understood what I was reading but it was nothing too detracting.

Overall, this book surprised me in a great way. It was a good read that dealt with some tough subjects and the characters are loveable. I'll definitely be reading more.

I know word verification is a pain, but spam is worse.
