The right love is worth the wait.
Seven years have passed since I fell for Boone West. The brooding bad boy. We were friends, even when I secretly wanted more, but I settled for what he offered. After he left Wyoming–and me–I grew up. Moved on. Or so I believed until he blew back into my life with the scorching force of an Arizona desert wind.
I’m not that innocent sixteen-year-old girl anymore–I’m a businesswoman who swore never to settle again. But this older, wiser, hotter version of Boone unsettles me. How am I supposed to resist his megawatt smile and his built-army-strong body? Especially when he’s inserting himself into every aspect of my life? Now he’s determined to prove he can offer me everything that he couldn’t before–and he’s the only man that can fix the heart that he broke.
Joining the army? Best decision I ever made. Even though it meant I had to leave her behind. Sierra McKay. The wide-eyed beauty, who saw more in me than I saw in myself. I didn’t dare offer her anything more than friendship, because one kiss, one touch and I wouldn’t have had the guts to go.
I’ve worked hard to become the man I am. I have a career. A purpose. After a chance encounter with the one woman I never forgot–I’m not leaving anything else to chance. Now that I’ve chased her across three states, I’m ready to demonstrate that the passion we couldn’t act on before burns hotter than ever between us. And I’ll use every weapon in my arsenal to show Sierra McKay that she’s always been mine.
This novel was amazing! I loved everything about it. There is so much I want to write about how much I loved this novel and why. No matter what I write, I’m pretty sure my review won’t do it justice. You know how every once in awhile (more often if you’re lucky), a novel comes along that brings on that big “sigh” not only at the end but throughout? Well “Unbreak My Heart” was that for me. This is one of those second chance stories that I love. Lorelei managed to bring out all the “feels” for me. We all love the trope of second chance love but for me, there is one thing that ruins the coming together of our H/h. And that is when our heroine is a pushover and forgives the hero for shattering her heart in the past, too soon and too easily. I need to believe the remorse. There needs to be groveling! But that did not happen here. For reasons I won’t say, Boone West had to leave Sierra Daniels McKay behind when they were teenagers. It wrecked her. Boone comes back into her life seven years later looking for a second chance. Does Sierra forgive easily? Hell no! Our boy had to put in a lot of effort. Grovel he did. When Sierra and Boone finally give in to their feelings, I was smiling like a goofball. 🙂 That being said, the development of their relationship was believable and honest. There was no angst involving secondary characters. From the beginning, Boone and Sierra confided their fears and hopes for their future. Boone’s backstory broke my heart. He was an amazing man, full of loyalty, love and hope, something he never had before now. His childhood was shitty and that’s an understatement. Sierra annoyed me occasionally because she analyzed her emotions too often however I understood why. I loved that she was loyal to Boone and understanding of his past, empathizing rather than pitying Boone. I have read eleven of Lorelei’s novels and have a lot more on my TBR list. Her writing style flows, keeps you turning pages and there is substance and depth. You just know she does her research. Lorelei’s love scenes are steamy and dirty BUT tender and tasteful at the same time. And there were a lot of them. So if all that wasn’t enough to add Boone to my book boyfriend list, the fact that he loves to nuzzle did. “Unbreak My Heart” was a swoon worthy novel with insatiable characters and a love so strong I teared up. I would definitely re-read this.
Oh, and guess what? This is the beginning of a new series. Lorelei introduced us to some sexy secondary characters that I can’t wait to learn more about in their own novels.
