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?
Sometimes love is real, but the circumstances are all wrong. Love is tricky. And messy. And hard to explain.
ARC REVIEW ➼
I LOVE the Cloverleigh series and I feel with each book I fall more and more in love with it. Sylvia and Henry’s story was beautiful, emotional and honestly, they have been my favorite.
Sylvia is the oldest of the Sawyer siblings. Newly divorced, she moved back to Cloverleigh Farms with her children. Henry is also newly divorced and working more than ever at Cloverleigh. Having a common connection they form an instant friendship, but are fighting the intense connection and pull they have for each other.
I LOVE Sylvia. From the very start I was all about the #TeamSylvia train. Her speech and the mic drop got me. She was hurting, she didn’t feel loved, desirable, wanted, but she knew she had to stay strong for her children. She had to put on that mask and be there for them. She is strong and such an amazing role model when it comes to book heroines.
Henry. He was perfect. He is super sweet and I love his nerdy side, especially when it comes to his wine. He is still recovering from his divorce, but he knows what he feels for Sylvia is real. I love how patient he is with her. The bond he slowly forms with his children.
Unbreakable was unexpectedly emotional for me. I didn’t think this story would touch me as much as it did, but when it come to a few scenes involving Sylvia’s daughter, Whitney, I was a mess.
Unbreakable is an emotional, beautiful, second chance at love story. A MUST READ and a TOP READ of 2020.
