I was so looking forward to reading this book. I've heard such great things - and the summary sounded amazing. Second-chance stories are one of my favorite types of romances. I really wasn't even nervous at all to read Unbroken, despite it being New Adult. (I have extreme love and hatred for the genre; it's very touch and go.) But. UGH! I just really didn't like very much at all about this book.
First of all, there needs to be more backstory, more memories of Juliet and Emerson's past. I only remember there being two scenes Juliet remembers that didn't involve sex. The first is located toward the beginning of the book, about the first interaction she had with Emerson. I have no idea how they went from point A to point B; it's just the first few minutes of their introduction. The second is how they broke up. Did you catch that about the NOT involving sex? Yeah. Because that is basically what this whole book is about. It's not that there is sex on nearly every page, but there sure are PLENTY of pages with Juliet thinking about sex with Emerson. My God. Where was this amazing love story? Basically, Juliet gets into town, runs into Emerson the first night, and is almost immediately weak in the knees, practically vibrating with want for him. No flashes of sweet romance and heartbreak mixed in with the heated connection of lust and longing - you know, the kind of memories that come from "hurricane" style romances. Nope.
I seriously think the woman might need to have her hormone levels checked. She is worse than a teenager! Bottom line: story needs much more development. I'm fairly certain you could wrap up all the dialogue the two of them share in about 5 pages (meaningful dialogue would take up half of that, maybe).
