Review: Unbreakable by Rebecca Shea
Jessica Harper is the epitome of perfection. She’s a good daughter, makes excellent grades, and always strays on the safe side of life. The last thing she thought would ever happen was falling in love with her best friend’s brother. But sometimes fate just has a way of bringing two people together. Wide receiver for the University of Arizona, Gabe Garcia, seems to have it all. When his feelings for Jessica come to surface, Gabe will give up everything to be with her. But what happens when a tragedy abruptly changes the course of your life? For Jessica and Gabe, everything they thought they knew about each other will be questioned. Sometimes, there are scars in life that are cut too deep to completely heal. Will their love prove to be unbreakable, or will it shatter and prove fate is just another lie?
Okay, I have been debating whether or not to write a review because I seriously have a love-hate relationship with this book. The first 40% and last 10% I was completely in love but everything in between that I was pissed. Pissed to the point where I really considered putting the book down and never picking it up again. I have never stopped reading a book and I didn’t want to continue but I pushed on and in the end I was grateful I did but I don’t know if I will pick up the companion novel.
Let me tell you why, the beginning of the book was a wonderful whirlwind romance and who doesn’t want to fall in love with there high school love and life long friend? So it was great and happy and then the “incident” happened. I am not going to say what but I predicted it before it happened. Then Jess becomes a horrible person, she got under my skin and sat there bugging me. Jess became selfish, narrow-minded, and then I didn’t want to read anymore.
Then cue, Landon. I didn’t want to hate Landon but I did and all I could think about was how much I hated Jess for treating Gabe the way she did and for acting like she did. Landon was just screwing everything up. So I spent about 10 chapters reading in complete anger towards Jess. She is that type of character that if she was my friend I would have slapped her up and told her to get her head out of her *ss.
So I apologize to Landon because he didn’t deserve my anger but I just did not like Jess, she is a mess of emotions then a void of emotions. There were also things that went unanswered and it bothered me because I wanted answers. Sorry, I am still steaming over this book. So as you can see proceed with warning. I would give this 3 stars out of 5 if I was rating. There were good parts but there were parts that drove me crazy!
Hence you see my predicament with reading the second book since it is about Landon and he is still receiving some of my anger towards Jess. In the end Jess redeems herself but I just can’t decide if I should continue this journey. So it is up to you but it might leave you with the whiplash it left me.
I was broken in every way possible and needed to find out who I was amongst the shattered pieces.
