    Amazing and moving story!

    **I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** Lauren Blakely is always one of my one-click authors and Unbreak My Heart truly does break your heart and then finds a way to put all the pieces back into place right where they are meant to be. This book is a departure from Blakely's usual fun, flirty rom coms, but it is still packed with her witty banter, hot sexy times and characters you're able to connect with. Andrew is at a place in his life where he is looking for purpose and direction. He's just lost his older brother to cancer and he's feeling beyond alone. Having lost his parents only a few years before and not being close to his sister, he doesn't have a family unit to lean on. The one person he seems to be gravitating toward is the person he lost several years ago after an amazing summer; the girl he has always loved, and still does, Holland. Holland is back in Andrew's life, at least for the time being. She is a nurse and her best opportunities are likely not in the immediate area, so her time being around Andrew again is going to be fleeting. She wants to help him, but she also doesn't want to be his crutch and she also doesn't want to fall for him again when she knows that it would never work with them so far apart. The two of them are definitely hovering between friends and more than friends and it's making it difficult on both of them. Much of the story centers on Andrew's journey to find answers surrounding his brother's death and for him to find some modicum of healing. He knows it isn't going to be easy, but it is something he needs to do to find the closure he ultimately seeks. The path is unclear and with just a few clues to go on, he sets out on an adventure that is going to change things in more ways than he can imagine. This journey is going to help him find peace, understanding and hope. This is one of the most raw books that Lauren Blakely has written. It's painful and emotional at times, but it has it's light moments as well. I ran the gamut of emotions with this book and I truly did feel like all of the pieces were in the exact right spot when we got to the end of the book. Life is about ups and downs and sometimes we don't understand why things happen, but they do because in the end, you're going to be exactly where you were meant to be and you'll be stronger for it when you come out on the other side. I highly recommend this book!

    Living & Loving With All You Have

    This was such an emotional second chance love story! Faithful Lauren Blakely readers should note that this is not her typical fun and lighthearted romcom. Unbreak My Heart takes readers on a heartbreaking, but ultimately uplifting, journey through grief and finding one's true happiness. I really loved the overall message of the book about being at peace with yourself, appreciating the people in your life, and living life to the fullest. Happiness is different to every person and seeing Andrew discover not only what brought his brother Ian happiness, but also him finding his own was so beautiful. The tone was definitely more somber and serious for the majority of the book, but I feel it was necessary to see Andrew's full character arc. His relationship with Holland was so easy and natural, that my heart hurt so much that it had been derailed by timing, distance, and circumstance. Their playful banter and chemistry will make your heart sing and you won't be able to help yourself from rooting for them to find their HEA. I enjoyed both characters, but was very impressed by Holland and her unwillingness to be Andrew's crutch/drug as he healed. She could have easily given into her feelings regardless of the complications, but instead she chose to face the hard truths in the hopes of something even better in the future. Holland was truly a fantastic heroine. Readers may need a tissue or two for this one, but it will be well worth it in the end. *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    Unbreak My Heart 5,5 Stars

    Unbreak My Heart is like no other book by Lauren Blakely. Yes they all have all the feels, but Unbreak My Heart is more of everything. It´s not the typical rom com, the story made me laugh, it made me cry, I was angry at some point and then it made me cry again. You´ll need tissues, be prepared. Unbreak My Heart is the heartwrenching story of Andrew and Holland. Andrew is a man who suffered great losses. He´s tired, angry, all alone and simply doesn´t care anymore. Holland is back after 3 years away, she´s now a nurse, but maybe she leaves again, soon. Both had a summerfling years ago. But Andrew needs Holland, only he doesn´t know it. Favorite Quote: " If "fine" were a dude, he´d be a bachelor. " This sums Andrew up. He´s his own island. Unbreak My Heart is beautifully thought out, beautifully written and beautifully told. I can´t express how much I loved the story and the characters. I recommend Unbreak My Heart and give 5,5 stars.

    Complex

    Unbreak My Heart by Lauren Blakely is a heart wrenching, but also heartwarming, story of loss, family, love, romance and healing. Andrew has just lost his brother and no longer has living family close to him. He's on his own and grieving. His friends, neighbors and everyone around him are giving him leeway to do anything, and he knows it. They are supportive of him, but in truth he needs more. He needs to discover himself, find his life again. Holland is different from all the other people. Not only her past history with Andrew but her background makes her a person who can actually help him, and she wants to. As they journey together grief and personal history cause a very complicated dynamic that makes this a different and special book by Ms. Blakely. These characters are complex and give a real feeling of connection while still being romantic and witty as they progress. Overall Unbreak My Heart by Lauren Blakely was a great story that brings out real feelings from readers and is very well done. I very much enjoyed reading it. (I voluntarily reviewed an advance review copy of this book I received for free in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

    Unbreak My Heart by Lauren Blakely.

    Awesome! love this story. Very exciting, very sad and keeps you on the edge. I am glad they got together at the end. It was a surprise to see his brother ended up with a baby but I had a gut feeling this would happen. Yes I would recommend this book to others. I would also read this book again. This is the first book I have read by Lauren Blakely.
