Unbroken by Melody Grace


“Mom always told me there are two kinds of love in this world: the steady breeze, and the hurricane. Emerson Ray was my hurricane….”

Juliet McKenzie was an innocent eighteen-year old when she spent the summer in Beachwood Bay—and fell head over heels in love with Emerson. Complicated, intense Emerson, the local bad boy. His blue eyes hid dark secrets, and just one touch could set Juliet ablaze. Their love was demanding and all-consuming, but when summer ended, tragedy tore them apart. Juliet swore she’d never go back, and she’s kept that promise… Until now.

Four years later, Juliet’s done her best to rebuild the wreckage of her shattered life. She’s got a great boyfriend, and a steady job planned after she graduates. Returning to Beachwood to pack up her family’s beach house to prepare it for sale, Juliet is determined that nothing will stand in the way of her future. But one look from Emerson, and all her old desire comes flooding back. He let her go once, but this time, he’s not giving up without a fight. And Emerson fights dirty.

A heartbreaking history. An unstoppable passion. Torn between her past and future, Juliet struggles to separate love from desire. But will they find a way to overcome their tragic secrets—together? And after so much damage has been done, can a love remain unbroken?

~~Amanda’s 4 Star Thoughts~~

My mom always said there are two kinds of love in this world: the steady breeze, and the hurricane.”

“Emerson Ray was my hurricane.”

Unbroken takes place 4 years after the summer they first met (story told in Untouched). Juliet and Emmerson were once madly in love, and then something happened and they both went their separate ways and never talked again.  Now Juliet is back to her families beach house to pack up because her mother has passed away and they are selling the house.  She is an emotional mess and on a roller coaster almost the entire book.  She hopes to avoid Emerson, but fate had other plans for her.

“You can try and pretend you don’t feel it, but you do.  You’ll always be mine.”

They immediately feel that connection they once had, but Juliet has another life now and she thought she was happy.  But when she finally decides to jump, he isn’t there to catch her.  This book will have you asking… What??? How???  Whyyyyyy??? My emotions were all over the place!  This is a HEA, and I so wished there was an epilogue!!!  Juliet and Emmerson have the kind of sexual tension between them that leaves you panting and wanting more! I wished there would have been a little more of the story told because I sometimes felt like it was too quick paced and left you with gaps in the story.  But overall it was a great book about an epic love!
