In the beginning of Unbreakable, we are quickly introduced to Jess and Gabe. Jess lost her mother at a young age, so it's always been just her and her dad. Her dad is a fire chief and basically threw himself into his work in order to cope with the loss of his wife. He was never around the way a good father should be. Jess was raised by her neighbors, the Garcia's. She is best friends with Ava and has had the biggest crush on Gabe since as long as she could remember. Jess and Ava are now graduating from high school and Gabe is home from college in Arizona. The sparks start flying between them; Neither of them forgetting the one kiss they shared just over a year before. Now that Jess is out of school and of age, Gabe knows that now is the time to tell her how he has always felt about her, in hopes that she feels the same way about him.
Everything is going great with Gabe and Jess and they have the perfect relationship. Gabe is the ultimate romantic and is working hard to provide for Jess and trying to save up for their future together. He promises to always love and protect her. But even at the happiest of times, things are out of their control and tragedy suddenly strikes out of nowhere. Jess' world is shattered beyond recognition and she loses sight of herself. She has a family she loves and who loves her, but due to circumstances, she thinks herself unworthy of them. She does the only thing that she thinks is right for her, and she pushes everyone away and runs.
With the help of her academic advisor, she runs off to North Carolina for an internship. Gabe is completely shattered in the aftermath of these events. He blames himself for not being there to protect her, even though it was out of everyone's control. Gabe wants to help her, be there for her and to be understanding of what she is going through, but all he knows is that the love of his life is pulling away from him and he doesn't know how to get her back.
I absolutely loved Gabe and Jess. Gabe was so romantic, caring, sweet and protective of Jess. My heart broke for what him and Jess went through and how she dealt with the situation. I loved that he never gave up on her and their epic love story. Jess was so sweet and loving and what she went through just broke me. I hated how she handled things with Gabe, but I understood why she did what she thought was best for her.
Unbreakable is written in dual POV. I loved getting both sides of the story! It gives us better understanding of both characters. We get to learn how what Jess went through, not only affected her, but everyone close to her as well. This story will make you happy, laugh, and cry throughout the entirety. You will be taken on one heck of a rollercoaster ride through several different emotions, and you will never want to get off. I recommend bringing tissues along for the ride. This book will definitely touch you in many ways, and give you the major feels. Rebecca Shea did one hell of a job with this book! And I cannot wait to read more from her!
In all it is a very good book, heart breaking in part, but Jess and Gabe got their HEA.
So Gabe and Jessica have basically grown up together, Jessica basically having lived with Gabe and his family for her much of her life because he dad is a firefighter and not around a whole lot. Her best friend is Gabe's sister and is basically like a sister to her, basically the whole family is like her family. When Gabe and Jess get together so early on in the story, no one is opposed to it, everyone embraces them being together and its all happiness, sunshine, and flowers. I have to admit I was a little worried this was going to be a boring book, I mean where was the conflict. And then of course, BAM, out of nowhere tragedy strikes and Jessica is never the same. She pulls away from everyone, dumps Gabe, doesn't talk to the family who basically raised her, and moves out of her dad's house across the country to get away and heal from her trauma.
You can't help but feel for Jessica. In the beginning you feel bad that her dad is like voluntarily not in the picture with her, and a hug is like out of the question. But then after the event happens, your heart just breaks for her. She shuts down completely. And it's so understandable, and it's so heartbreaking. In the beginning right after it happened, there are a couple of scenes where she does some things and says some things to Gabe that basically rip your heart out. But once she leaves and ends up North Carolina for an internship, she is able to kind of start to rebuild her life and heal. She meets this guy, Landon, a cop, who is really there for her in every sense of the word. He makes her feel safe, and she is able to really start to put back together the pieces. I was pulling for her the entire book, wanting her to be able to get her life back. I was so proud of her as the novel went on.
Gabe, oh man Gabe, poor guy. He's such a good guy, and he is head over heels in love with Jessica. He only wants to make her happy, even if that means letting her go. And even though he lets her go, he never gives up on her or their love, even when everyone is telling him that he needs to, he holds on. It's really kind of sad watching it, it really kind of proves to you that when someone bad happens to one person it affect everyone around them too. I really wanted him to get his happy ending.
Landon was an awesome character. I loved him. He was so good with Jessica, and he really cared about her, even loved her. But he knew that he had to help her, and part of helping her was helping her find her way back home and not with him. I respect him so much for being able to put her first, and not what he wanted. I was really happy to find out that the next book in this series is going to be about him.
I enjoyed reading this book, it's a heavy book, with heavy subject matter, so be prepared going in. If you are looking for just a happy book with some funny lines in it this probably isn't going to be your cup of tea. But if you are looking for a new adult book where the characters have to endure some serious pain before finding their way back to each other, then this is your book. It's really a beautiful, although completely heartbreaking journey. Fully recommend it.
