Review, Excerpt & Giveaway of UNBREAKABLE by Gigi Aceves


As a child, Roxy Oliver experienced her first heartache resulting in her trusting only a few…

As a man, Cody Davis experienced many deaths while serving in the Marines; however, his greatest grief was when two of the most important people in his life died, resulting in him needing to be in control….

Both lost the same thing…

Felt the same pain….

Suffered the same fate…

The loss of LOVE.

Finally, destiny’s smiling their way as love blossoms between them. When danger comes knocking, threatening to destroy what they both hold dear, is it an unmistakable love when he’s willing to give up his life for hers, or is that control?
Isn’t it an unmistakable love when protecting him is the only choice she has, or is
that trusting no one, but herself?

So, when everything’s left broken….

Will control prevail over trust, or will forgiveness be the road that leads them to their unmistakable love…

“Love always protects, always trust, always hopes, and always perseveres.”
 1 Corinthians 13:7


     Wow, where do I even start.  This book is so full of emotion, there is no way I can even begin to touch on it.  Roxy has never felt truly loved and accepted.  How could she?  Her own father threw her away like trash and the only family she had left was her uncle.  With her past, it is easy to understand why she has issues with trust.  When she meets/begins her relationship with Cody, she knows that she has to protect her heart and not let him get close.
     The only thing Cody knows is that Roxy owns his heart and soul.  He loves everything about her and will stop at nothing to prove to her that he will always put her first.  However, the one thing he has issues with is giving up control.  He is scarred that if he loses control, he will lose the one thing important in his life, Roxy.    
     When Roxy's life is put in danger, Cody knows that he will do whatever it takes to save her and keep her safe.  The last thing Roxy wants is for anyone to put their lives on the line to save her, especially Cody.  She loves him too much to allow him to get hurt or die for her.  What she doesn't realize is that Cody feels the same way and he will not be able to live if she dies.  
    This books is so full of angst, heartache and suspense that you can't help but feel for both Roxy and Cody.  They both want to protect the other and don't see the others point of view.  There is so much I want to say about this book, but I don't want to ruin it for anyone either.  The only thing I can say is that you will not be disappointed in this read.  I can't recommend it enough.  It was a great read that I am sure I will read over and over.  So, what are you waiting for?  Make sure to get your copy today!

Roxy’s POV

“Baby girl, I hope, someday, you’ll have it in your heart to forgive me. I can’t undo what’s been done; it’s too late anyway. Life is full of limitations and restrictions, but what I can give you is freedom from the hell I’ve created. You’ll have a better life living it away from me…far away from this.”

As soon as I hear my door close, I know who to call. I’m tired of all the lies, deception, and conditions. With a shaky voice and a hopeful heart, I call the one person, the one family member, who loves me unconditionally.

“Uncle Jack,” My hurt filled voice manages to say two words. That’s all I need to say.
His confident voice never wavers, “I’ll be there, kiddo. You trust me?”

“One hundred and ten percent,” I say with as much conviction as a child my age can possibly conjure.

“Outstanding! I’ll see you soon.”

At such a young age, I lost trust, not in love, but in people. How could I not? When the two I’ve grown up with webbed a life full of deception, my own father put conditions on his love for me, my own mother doesn’t want me, I lock my feelings tight, secure them with all of my ten year old strength, and time it shut with my not-so-innocent-from-pain heart, telling myself to never…ever let anyone in.

Not even death can make me open it ever again.

Even though my heart is in the state it’s in, a small part of my heart tells me that when God closes a door, He always…always opens a window; small enough to breathe…wide enough to escape…just enough to live, and just the perfect time to start. My new beginning is with the only four people I know I can trust…with them I’m safe, loved, and free. I’m free to be me. 

The love they offer is without restriction…it’s genuine…it’s undeniable…it’s unmistakable.

I’m a middle child, and no, I don’t suffer from the middle child syndrome. According to my parents, I’m the craziest, and I think, my husband and children agree with them.
Besides the births of my two children, my husband’s successful transplant is one of the most memorable moments of my crazy life! After dealing with two bouts of cancer, my husband served as an inspiration to me and my children. I’m privileged to be married and go on this crazy ride, we call life, with a man who doesn’t know the meaning of giving up.
I’m known as The Crazy Cat Lady, in the Wanted World. Am I crazy? Well, the jury is still out on that one, but I’d like to think I can make one person smile with my craziness.

Review of SHATTERED BY LOVE by C.A. Harms

Author: C.A. Harms
Series: Scarred by Love, Book 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
He was the one.

The man she wanted with all her heart. 

But it took years before Bree realized she deserved more then what Max was willing to give.

Max, was cocky and arrogant…

Too strong-headed to admit that he felt more for Bree than just lust. 

Then it happened… 

One devastating night, and it shook Max to his very core.

That’s when he began to see life in whole new way. 

Now he’s left to sort through the mess that he’s created. 

Will he be able to rise above it all and make amends with those he needs the most?

Or will the damage be irreversible and leave him longing for what could have been?


     Oh, how the mighty fall!!  Let me start by saying that this was the book I was most looking forward to in this series.  We knew about Max and Bree's "relationship" from the previous book and knew Bree was seriously getting short changed.  She was willing to accept anything Max offered her in order to have him in her life.  Max was not ready to admit how he truly feels about Bree.  He just assumes she will always be there waiting for him.  However, when Max is injured on the job, he finally succeeds in pushing Bree too far.  
     Once Max realizes his mistake, will it be too late?  Will he be able to win Bree back and prove to her that he can be the man she needs him to be?  Will Bree allow Max back into her life?  While she knows that she will always love him, is she ready to take the chance and risk her heart one more time?  
     I seriously can't recommend this book enough.  I loved it from the first page until the last page.  Max truly grew up in this book and realized that the love of a woman is all he truly needs in life.  While we are used to seeing the dominating Max, this book also shows his softer side and lets you truly get to know who he really is.  
     Bree, oh how I couldn't help but feel for Bree.  She has had a truly hard life and knows she deserves someone who loves her unconditionally and will always be by her side.  I love her strength and how she never gives up on what is truly important, complete unconditional love.  
     I promise you will not be disappointed in this book.  It is truly a great read and I can't wait to see what is going to happen in the next book between Lily and Tanner.  I know it will be just as great as this one, if not even better.  Don't just take my word for it, make sure to get your copy of this wonderful read today!!
